    ★★½

    - Yet, here we are. You thought this was everything you wanted… so what’s not here, Jakub?
    - She’s not here.

    Spaceman didn’t really achieve anything groundbreaking anyway, but this film is entirely limited for me because I am deathly afraid of spiders. I could find no enjoyment whatsoever, since I was constantly on edge about Hanuš suddenly becoming evil. I mean, his introduction isn’t exactly that friendly — it’s so strange to have him come out of Jakub’s body…

    - So, because she pursed her lips, he’s ‘gonna change his entire collection?

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    But this isn’t about me. This is hurting a lot of people.

    Seeing this film, after such long a wait and so many speculations and theories, is the modern-day equivalent of being a teen in the ‘80s who got to see Star Wars or Indiana Jones or any other iconic, memorable flick on the big-screen for the first ever time. It’s a bold statement to make, I know — but Spider-Man: No Way Home was everything I wanted it to…
