    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    ★★★★★

    Rewatched this weekend and it was even better than I remember. Everyone brings their A game. No complaints, flawless filmmaking, acting, choreography, stunt work, and the bliss of seeing actual locations, and the use of lighting to hide bad CGI instead of boasting it.

    Some banger lines:

    “It’s quite cool”

    “Fly you fools”

    “I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

    “Nobody tosses a dwarf”

    Alright then, keep your secrets”

    The list goes on. Favorite books, favorite movies.

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★½

    Most of my issues are with narrative and plot holes. 

    Pros:
    - Defoe may be better in this one than in Spider-man (2002). Probably because he brings a level of brutality rarely felt in marvel, though often seen, and a desire to do harm for no reason other than his own insanity. Loved him.
    - The three Peters works on a lot of levels. Mostly when any of the three get to act. When it’s CGI nonsense, like a lot…
