I love the music and always appreciate a story about a quarter-life crisis, but I just couldn’t get into this one as much as I wanted to.
It was definitely fun to watch Andrew Garfield absolutely go for it, though.
About 10 minutes in, a girl next to us asked “Is this supposed to be a comedy?” That about sums it up.
I understand why this isn’t for everyone and definitely have some questions about the narrative arc at points, but this was just a fun time. Flawless soundtrack and fashion choices also.
An essential component of the evangelical kid starter pack. I think it holds up, but considering that I can quote almost the entire movie, that might just be nostalgia talking.
Also justice for my middle school science teacher who my mom exclusively referred to as Mr. Tumnus
I’m not sure if I agree with arguments that this is the best spider-man movie (I still love Tom Holland’s Peter a lot), but I do get the hype now.
Doc Ock is such an odd villain, but Alfred Molina pulls it off surprisingly well. I can’t wait to see him in No Way Home.
I also think this movie nails the whole “cost of being a hero” trope in a way that some of the MCU movies have struggled…
It would have been better if she was actually a terrorist, but they couldn’t commit to the bit.
I offered to watch this with my mom and then promptly remembered why I normally refuse to watch hallmark movies…
Half a star for the terrorism plot that was an unexpected twist.
A couple of the things I love in this world are a great sports story and a cool windbreaker. This movie has plenty of both, plus a killer soundtrack, incredible performances and some unexpected laughs. Definitely a top-tier sports movie in my opinion (though I do wish they’d made it a little shorter)
