    ★★★½

    You can just feel how much genius and vision is in this movie. Unfortunately, I feel it hasn't aged particularly well, thus the three stars. Would have blown me away in 1978 I'm sure.

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★½

    As far as Marvel movies go, this was pretty good. Worth watching even if only for Jake Gyllenhaal/keeping up with pop-culture.

    ★★

    It's a bit of cheap fun. Has a few jokes and the music is good.

    I see this listed in Synthwave movie lists a lot, so I want to make something clear; this is a parody of 80s/Synthwave culture. Don't expect another Drive (2011) or The Guest (2014). It's essentially a 30 minute YouTube video and for that it's pretty good.

    Fun movie, good score.

    The VFX, special effects, and acting can be hit or miss but I'd recommend giving it a go regardless.
