    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    Solid, enjoyable entry into the Spiderman canon, and easily the best one since Spiderman 2. No rubbery CGI, no rehashing of the origin story, a very fine Peter Parker, and Keaton is knocking it out of the park as a working joe bad guy who considers what he does as work.

    It gets a little difficult to follow the last act action set piece, but otherwise, GOOD WORK MARVEL.

    ★★★★

    Very fun movie with one insanely catchy tune that will lodge in your head like a brainspider. It's goofy and surreal, with plenty of jokes, some of which are at oldschool Lego expense, which is fine. Without spoiling however, I think this movie is not just working on a meta-level (big deal, a lot of kids movies do that, to keep the adults interested), but actually transcends this in the last act and becomes meta-meta-level (meta about meta-levelling).

    Combine this…

  • Shock Corridor

    Shock Corridor

    ★★★★

    Crazy, fun exploitation flick about a reporter faking insanity to investigate a murder in an asylum, but then finding faking madness and being mad are kind of a bit too close to each other for comfort.

    It also actually says things about America at the time it was made, including comments on racism, facing responsibility for one's actions (or not), and how being different can condemn you.

    So sleazy in parts, and cheaply profound in others.

    Best line comes when the hero finds himself in a women's ward: "NYMPHOS!"
