It’s a busy weekend for movie lovers. Marvel Studios returns to the small screen with Ms. Marvel, the first lead Muslim superhero in the world of today, and reception for the show already seem wild. Jurassic World: Dominion looks poised to wrap off 29 years worth of storytelling, and, if the gods of the box office smiles upon it, it’ll be breaking box-office records irrespective of the less-than-desirable critics reviews it’s been getting.
