    Spider-Man: Homecoming


    This was a surprise. I went into this film with little to no expectations—aside from passively seeing some positive critical feedback. I went into it not knowing anything about the plot and fairly sure I never watched a trailer, either.

    I enjoyed this and would watch additional installments.

    Incredible score. Truly remarkable and inspiring camerawork. I'll be in awe of some of the shadow work for some time.

    The story had me until half way through and then it left me underwhelmed.

    The Godfather


    Just watched this on the big screen (TCM Big Screen Classics) for the first time, maybe fourth time seeing it to date. Everything about it oozes perfection. The characters, family dynamic (oppressive patriarch/mafia), and dialogue are a time capsule of the time period. The family dysfunction (power struggles and psychology), depiction of self preservation and notions of integrity are timeless.
