    Spider-Man: Far From Home, acts as a strong sequel to its first outing, but perhaps a mediocre or just simple light-hearted follow up to Endgame. The film really comes into its own halfway through, with Mysterio and the MJ relationship being the strongest aspects of this fun film. Hopefully, the future will be bright for Tom Holland's Spider-Man, breaking free from the Iron Man/ Avengers comparisons and becoming its own story.

With a perfect voice cast, the team at Pixar give us a film filled with laughs, romance, darkness, and an emotional story. Complete with an endearing soundtrack, Toy Story is a must watch for anyone.

    You’d think the Ed Sheeran cameo in GOT would have taught them something. But instead they give him a main role in…
