    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    The only good thing about this movie is the ending. Also, I'm not surprised John Watts still doesn't know how to shoot Spider-Man especially when it comes to web slinging. It's amazing what fictional characters with no chance of ever logically existing do in some out-of-place fan-service disguised as a movie, as an event, not an actual film.

    This is precisely as atrocious as a heterosexual Christmas romance on Lifetime, except that it's with gay leads, which I guess is something gay men who live in 2020 should be grateful for.

    Hey, at least the boring gay couple is not in a tedious subplot. Instead, the gay guys are in a tedious main plot. So Bravo!
