    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    Oh, this is why people enjoy the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I get it now. I feel my avoidance of Marvel over the last decade has softened - even if it is a little. I'm certainly not on the same wavelength as Martin Scorsese or Francis Ford Coppola.

    Part of my 52 Films by Women Challenge! (27/52)

    My only gripe with Strange Days is that it's such a missed opportunity to not use the song 'Strange Days' by The Doors. Bad luck Bigelow, I give your cult classic an A-. Minus that cruel factor, Strange Days is an utterly spotless piece of science-fiction. From the very first shot, told from the point-of-view of a bank robber where his heist goes badly wrong, the level of skill needed to…
