  • Spider-Man: Far from Home Review

    After the marathon that was Avengers: Endgame, it’s only appropriate that the following addition to the MCU would be a laidback vacation. At least that’s what Peter Parker is looking for in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

    The audience might underestimate just how brutal and uncomfortable Let Him Go becomes. What gets us through the grittier moments is the sincere rapport between Costner and Lane.

    Diane Lane's lead performance in 'Let Him Go' was awesome. She should definitely be on the list for Best Actress. I loved it. Tense, atmospheric and 'edge of your seat' in places.
