    ”I don't think Tony would've done what he did, if he didn't know you were gonna be here after he was gone.”

    Ever since he first showed up in Civil War I’ve been a fan of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man/Peter Parker in nearly every regard.

    "I guess I'll see you in the movies."

    At the mere age of 31, and with just two feature films under his belt, Damien Chazelle has become one of the most daring and passionate filmmakers working today. His first outing, the brutal and intense Whiplash, introduced us to Chazelle with big eyes and having us look out for anything his name is attached to. Now, two years later, he returns to the directors chair to bring us an ode…
