Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home ★★★★★

In Iron Man 3, Tony struggled with anxiety and panic attacks after having the events of Avengers. Here, Peter is coming to terms with the fact that the one person who always had his back and encouraged him is now gone. He feels the weight of everybody's expectations of him to rise to be "The Next Iron Man," and his sense of self-worth is as low as it can possibly be. 

The way the events of Endgame are addressed at the beginning of the film is amusing and realistic. The slice-of-life vibe that these movies are taking is the best way to go about a Spiderman narrative. MJ's and Peter's chemistry is pretty great, and I'm so glad it felt right because if it didn't, this whole movie wouldn't really work. 

That whole acid-trip scene where Mysterios tricks Spiderman is very impressive. Speaking of Mysterio himself, I really liked what was done with his character and backstory. The consequences of that after-credits scene leave me so excited for wherever they go from here.

For me, what people see as a complaint, is actually my favorite thing about these films. We see things from the perspectives of ordinary people—the little guy. Because Spiderman is the perfect hero to show that perspective and make the MCU universe feel more natural. Sure, the teen drama might annoy others, but it's actually one of my favorite things about these films.
