It’s so weird how this Spider-Man is written. Where the others are all introspective when they have a conflict with their duty (the crux of the character, responsibility and yada yada), this one debates with external calls to action. It’s not with the loss of uncle Ben that his morals are tested, it’s straight up nick fury asking him for help. And he really says “no” clear as day??? He woulda continued on his vacation (cause Spider-Man is known to take…
Spider-Man 2 2004
The Sam raimi - tobey maguire commentary cuts to a random convo with avi arad 😷 excuse me sir, what makes you think I want to hear you talk?
Anyway it makes 100% sense that tony stark would leave a legion of murder bots to a 15 year old. Ultron never happened, the whole “suit of armor around the world” thing never blew up in his face, the mcu itself didn’t say this sort of thing was bad in captain…
John Wick: Chapter 4 2023

Anyway it’s like the last one. Tippy top action, borderline nonsensical story.

When the one masked goon ended up going one on one with John and you can tell in his body language he knows he’s dead, but still he’s giving…
It’s one of those movies that likes itself more than the audience will but there was just enough well done generic action stuff to not totally stall. Not a glowing recommendation lol

The Suicide Squad 2021
James Gunn the only dude that can make Stewart little and graphic gun violence work in the same movie… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg
Anyway big Harley fan, this is the best she’s been in the dceu. Actually looks like her, is funny. This isn’t the best version of her but it is the best she’s worked in an ensemble to my memory. She’s just here to add her personality. She steps back the right amount here…
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker 2019
In an effort to course-correct and be the most Star Wars thing ever, it loses what makes every new movie exciting: world building and character, in turn becoming the least Star Wars movie of the whole saga.
