This February Tom Holland starred in the live-action adaptation of Uncharted, a game I never played but have known loads about for a while. When Tom Holland was cast as the iconic game character Nathan Drake fans of the game weren’t that pleased. I understand why now.
Uncharted is your typical find-the-treasure movie but it lacks all of the pizzazz of a film like Indiana Jones or even The Mummy. The action sequences aren’t fun or lively, the humor left me deadpan, the story was as generic as it gets, the music was terrible, and the plot twists were foreseeable; all in all, Uncharted is as bland as it gets.
So…I’ve seen Spider-Man: No Way Home for the second time and I have…mixed feelings.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is a solid movie with a lot of really great moments…if you’re a diehard Spider-Man fan…which I’m not. And that’s where the heart of the problem lies for this movie compared to Homecoming and Far from Home.
Those movies, of course, thematically, felt more fun and funnier. This movie is stuffed to the brim with fan service that paid off with the first viewing in a packed theater full of enthusiastic Spider-Man fans but at home…at times, some of the scenes fell flat. Like Tobey’s Peter and Andrew’s Peter meeting for the first time and having a Spidey face-off. That part was kind of meh. Or the apartment fight which is a good scene but not nearly as impactful as I remembered.
And yet, despite not feeling as much of an attachment as I felt last time to the story I didn’t refrain from crying quite a bit through the second half of this movie. This movie is very depressing. I’m talking go-to-bed-extremely-sad-depressing.
Okay, I know this is a bit late but I’ve been freaking out for the last two hours because No Way Home actually does manage to live up to the hype. It literally checks all of the boxes whether you’re a diehard Spider-Man fan or a simple MCU enthusiast (I’m the latter) this movie does not disappoint.
It’s funny, it feels like a real journey for Peter Parker, and it made me cry quite a bit more than I wanted to. Be ready to have tissues on hand.
I have so much to discuss, so many theories to throw out there, but for now I’ll tell you this; Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best live-action Spidey movie by a mile. There’s literally nothing wrong with it and that’s hard to say for any movie.
Great job, Marvel Studios. I’m giving this movie 97 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. And the only reason why I’m not giving this movie a perfect score is the fact that I don’t want to see it a second time in theaters. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that it was a phenomenal achievement of a film and a marvel (no pun intended) to watch in a packed, very enthusiastic theater.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
It’s been years in the making but it’s finally here, the first trailer for Chaos Walking. I’ve got to admit, I’m interested in the story and its cast is pretty intriguing (well…besides Nick Jonas) but that music though…it ruined the trailer!
Spider-Man 3‘s filming is practically under way and Tom Holland and co-star Jacob Batalon have read the script. Now it’s only a matter of time before we learn the name of this movie and it seems that we could potentially get the title reveal along with a sneak peek in December.
Of course, that’s just a speculation. Spider-Man 3 will not be hitting theaters until next December but we will get some details eventually and that’s going to be an exciting day.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
Since the days of comics Marvel and DC Comics have warred over its material and many of the heroes tend to be very similar. Green Lantern and Captain Marvel are practically identical characters, there’s The Flash and Quicksilver, Batman is a rich and super smart vigilante and Iron Man is a rich and super smart superhero, oh the list could go on and on but you get the point.
Now, even the movies are very much alike. Batman vs. Superman is Captain America: Civil War, Suicide Squad is Guardians of the Galaxy, Justice League tried to be The Avengers, they even have the same director, and Shazam! is Spider-Man: Homecoming. That’s why I thought it perfect to compare these two films and determine which is better. Enjoy!
