    ★★★★

    “You're taller than you look.”
    “I hunch.”
    “Don't.”

    Man, this movie gets it.

    A steady and unrelenting focus on truth and responsibility, a glorious Danny Elfman score that somehow sounds exactly how a Spider-Man score should sound, and it’s memorable after only one viewing and many years later in a manner that certain recent MCU outputs can only dream of.

    “What do you mean, interested? What's so interesting about her?”
    “Okay, Marcus, here. Here's my last scrap of dignity. Enjoy it. I want to go out with her. Okay? I'd like her to be my girlfriend. There, I said it.”
    “Brilliant! Why didn't you just say that?“
    “I don't know. I was embarrassed or something, 'cause this is a bit new for me.”

    When Scorsese said Marvel wasn't cinema, this is the cinema he was talking about. I've seen this twice now, and I do not regret it.

    “This man is an idiot. He's an actual village idiot. lf this was a village, he would be the idiot.”

    Every time the opening notes of Sparkle and Shine kick in, my soul leaves my body.
