    Spider-Man

    ★★★★½

    Sam Raimi's Spider-Man still holds up and is, and will always be, the definitive film version of the character. 

    Yes there are goofy moments and cheesy dialogue, but I do not consider these aspects flaws.  These quirks give the film more personality and heart, things that most modern blockbusters do not have because studios are too focused on sequels and cinematic world building. 

    You mess with Spidey, you mess with New York!

    The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald: The Visitors from Outer Space

    ★★★

    This might be the only VHS I've watched more than Toy Story as a kid.

    Sorry that I have the best tongue for movies.

    Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King

    ★★★★

    Hasan Minhaj truly teaches you about the Indian American experience, and if you are Indian American you'll be saying "real talk" the entire time.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    As a lifelong Spider-Man fan, I've been anxious for the Spider-Man film series since the announcement of the cancellation of Sam Raimi's proposed sequels in 2010. I could confidently say that, in 2017, I'm no longer worried about the direction of the Spider-Man film series. 

    This was a very fun film. I don't think I'll ever see a Spider-Man film that'll top the first two, but that's not what I'm looking for in a new Spider-Man film. I want an entertaining blockbuster, my expectations were definitely met in this criterion.  

    I hate Mondays.
