    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    I mean, let's be honest, Spider-Man was the best part of Civil War, right? "You have a metal arm?... that's so cool!"

    There's just so much to love about Spider-Man as a superhero, I'll love any film he's in (apart from when he's an emo douchebag Tobey Maguire). 

    I liked the low-key, local crime gang aspect rather than the "Aliens! Everyone's gonna die" storyline which is the usual MCU staple. 

    Convenient (and predictable) plot twist aside ... wholesome family fun. Can't wait for the next one.

    ★★★

    I wanted to like this a lot more than I did, maybe the hype and my own expectations led to my feeling of ... what if?... I think there was so much more potential! In the end we get a gorgeous looking movie, which for sure exploits the retro 80's love currently doing the rounds on the back of Stranger Things, but has less substance than I was hoping for. The kids are all great actors, and Pennywise was creepy…

    Doctor Strange

    ★★★½

    Doctor Strange, terrible name aside (although I get that they're stuck with it), was really enjoyable to be honest. There was some way overdone CGI scenes, and Mads Mikkelson was horrendously underused, but overall I enjoyed it. Benedict Cumberbatch is basically Robert Downey Jr but with brain surgeon smarts and has an actually OK American accent. Jolly good fun for a couple of hours.

    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★

    She really didn't take enough pictures for an "anti-war photographer". Killer soundtrack though and some cool Apocalypse now vibes.
