Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home ★★★

100-word review: Contrasting the close-to-the-ground "friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man" competences with the "Avengers level threat" challenges works much better to create drama (as in this film) than it did to create comedy (as in Homecoming), while in addition the comedy of Far From Home finds safe landing more often as well. It's unmistakably a MCU Spider-Man movie, but one that has heart; high school love and teenage awkwardness both are as big of a theme as they ought to be, and clearly the technical filmmaking crew had an absolute blast creating that extended Mysterio simulation sequence.

Part of my November 2021 Into Sony’s Spider-Verse challenge; 9th out of 10 films.
