    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    Marvel took some big swings and connected on all of them, not squandering any of the chances they were given. Tom Holland impresses once more as Peter Parker, easily making us empathize as he struggles with the duality and responsibility that comes with being a superhero. Witty, touching, and surprising in turn--it's the best Spider-man so far. That may seem like a big pronouncement but without spoiling anything, the film deftly wraps up so many dangling threads, and does it…

    Liz Garbus's fitting tribute to the oceanographer who went from passionate explorer to driven ecologist. Well chosen journal passages, archival footage and interviews make this doc a must watch, and not just for those already familiar with the legend.

    With music you feel deep in your bones, this intoxicating story of love/loss captivates from beginning to end. The script did well to support the music and the emotion, but wasn't quite up to the rest of the production. That said, a fantastic debut from Thyrone Tommy with incredibly charismatic performances from Thomas Antony Olajide and Emma Ferreira. Great to see Toronto shine.

    My very articulate review of George Miller's latest: Holy s^*t, that was a goddamn masterpiece. I'm still practically speechless after watching it two hours ago so I'm afraid that's the best I'm able to do at conveying my feelings for the film at this point. Hopefully I'll get my brain back at some stage in the future. Mostly so I can see it again.
