Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019)


6/10: Spider-Man: Far from Home
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Avengers: Endgame may have concluded the ongoing Avengers story that gradually developed since Iron Man, the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn't mean it will not continue with further films, this was the next instalment. Basically, in Mexico, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) are investigating an unnatural storm, and encounter the Earth Elemental, extradimensional creatures that use natural forces. A super-powered man, Quentin Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal), arrives to fight the creature. In New York City, the Midtown School of Science and Technology restarts its academic year to accommodate the students who were among those who disappeared in "the Blip" eight months ago. The school organises a two-week summer field trip to Europe. Peter Parker (Tom Holland), who is still distraught over the death of Tony Stark, is planning to confess his growing feelings for classmate Michelle "MJ" Jones (Zendaya), and he wants to take a break from heroics...

10/10: A great conclusion to phase 3 of the MCU
Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Spider-man: Far From Home included everything I have always wanted in a comic book movie. It provided an great storyline set after the events of End Game which also included how everyone was handling being snapped out of existance, then being brought back 5 years later (I mean, how do you think that would effect you if that actually happened?) We also see a more mature Spider-man in this film, where he doesn't care as much to be an avenger or the next Iron Man as many suspect him to be. I feel emotionally connected with Tom Holland's Spider-man because he clearly is still grieving throughout a majority of the film (although he doesn't show it right away) over Tony Stark's death and he very much feels the pressure of living up to what he has accomplished.At first, I was sceptical about this movie as I heard Mysterio would be playing more...

7/10: Fun popcorn movie
Thursday, July 4, 2019

For every Marvel movie that comes out, beyond the big box office and throngs of fans that love every moment, there are those that like to ride their high and mighty horse, telling you that comics are for kids and that these movies are infantile. And that's fine - look, we all have our own opinions - but when you're fighting your way through life and just need a break that takes you away from your own cares - which is what movies are really for - these popcorn films do a great job of making you forget bills, work, dealing with fixing up your home and even your aches and pains.Basically: Yes, we get it. You're above comic book movies. Keep it to yourself, because these movies are modern myth and have never been better than right now.The twenty-third film in the Marvel Universe - soon, you'll need a whole shelf to hold all the blu rays...

8/10: Nick Fury Just hijacked our summer vacation
Wednesday, July 3, 2019

With Endgame still fresh in our memories (and our hearts), this film has huge shoes to fill, plus the fact that the whole Spider-Man franchise has gone through four different incarnations in the last 12 years, this film has a lot to prove.Well it proves itself in droves, as Far From Home cleanses the palate of what was a heavy meal with the events of Endgame.We know it has to have connotative elements to the rest of Phase 3, but the way it deals with it is light and breezy, and without sounding too macabre, downright funny in it's opening sequence with Betty Brant reading the school news.And this sets the mood for the rest of the film, and it's a relief that although Iron Man and Stark Industries are pivotal to the narrative, it doesn't dwell on death or the finger-snap, it lingers on hope and the fact that we do...

8/10: Rebuilding
Monday, July 8, 2019

Emotionally I was going into this movie with a lot of ambivalence and reservations. We're entering a whole new era. Iron Man is gone, Captain America is gone, and the Avengers as we know them are no more. So, what does Marvel do moving forward? I know that Spider-Man is his own superhero but every MCU movie had ties to the Avengers.I expected a flop. Gladly, I got a good movie.Spider-Man vacations in Europe and he's needed there. The enemies are creatures called Elementals and they take the form of various elements (e.g. water, fire, air, etc.). That's one of the reasons I thought this movie would be weak because Spider-Man already had to fight a similar looking thing in Spider-Man 3 with the Sandman. I was thinking, "Who cares to see him fight water or fire? That's a horrible premise." Thankfully, the movie was more intelligent than that...
