    Spider-Man: No Way Home


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

    Okay, so hear me out.

    I know that a 5 star rating here is the epitome of over hyped fan service. But let me tell you, this movie is the embodiment of fan service and that is what makes it so great. No movie has better leveraged the love the fans have for the franchise into a story that is this original and emotionally satisfying. This is the culmination of two decades of representing the mythology of Spiderman on the…

    Wow. I was not expecting this experience.

    The first 45 minutes were exactly what I expected from this movie (and they were absolutely perfect). A minimalist take on grief, pain, loss, and the passage of time. Exquisitely shot with some of the best long takes I've ever seen. The one in the morgue just took my breath away.

    The themes are masterfully conveyed here and the craft of storytelling marvelously presents a story about storytelling. The ageing and fading of a star is the quintessential Hollywood tale. The symbolism of the old car…

    Superb recommendation! I find it difficult to write about movies as notable as this. What is left to say? Speaking from my perspective, I have always been drawn to films that explore the nagging paranoia that comes from a crime perfectly committed. I love this portrayal particularly because the narration that comes with it comes from a more resigned place, generating a perfect tension between what we see and what we hear.

    This is such a classic Hollywood tale. Complete…
