Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019)

Childhood television shows hold a special place in our hearts, bringing us back to the days where adventure lied in every episode.

With that said, I really like going into films based on true stories, without having any knowledge of what happened in reality, … Continue reading The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019)
