Toy Story 4 (2019): Is this the End? (Deep Discussion)

At the time, I was getting my first exposure to the anime/manga world, … Continue reading My Beginner’s Guide to Rurouni Kenshin

Spiderman: Far from Home (2019) – Marvel’s Best Romantic Comedy

Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) is such a great, cheerful follow-up after Avengers: Endgame (2019) because it brings the spotlight back to the youngest, fun-loving hero of the team –Spider-Man :). This movie, at first, made me very hopeful for how Peter’s relationship with MJ would develop in later Spider-Man movies. However, their future seems muggy now because of the recent news between Disney and … Continue reading Spiderman: Far from Home (2019) – Marvel’s Best Romantic Comedy
