Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★½

Why did I see this movie twice in theaters? I didn't even like it that much the first time. Sometimes other people ask you to join them for a movie you've already seen. Ya know. I didn't feel better or worse about it during the second viewing, although I was in a more cozy movie theater (the Angelika), so that's something. I maintain that Jake G's canvas of acting styles is the highlight of this frothy vacation comedy built over a kinda stale superhero conflict routine. And that a good amount of the comedy is pretty satisfying, but there's *so much* of it that unfortunately I'm distracted by the 40% or so that was painfully obvious and flat. Ah well. Tom Holland, great job again. May you continue on as Peter Parker for as long as possible.

Since I have nothing else to add here, I'll rank the Spider-Man movies to date (not counting the "Avengers" and "Captain America" appearances):

1) Spider-Man 2 (A)
2) Spider-Man: Homecoming (A-)
3) Spider-Man 2002 (B+)
4) Spider-Man: Far from Home (B)
5) Spider-Man 3 (B-)
6) The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (C+)
7) The Amazing Spider-Man (C+)
