    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    Spiderman Homecoming was good. Kinda inconsequential and underdeveloped, but is still a fun watch thanks to a significantly bigger focus on comedy.

    It doesn't really strive to be more than a light crowd-pleaser... But then again after the last two Spiderman movies were so horrendously bad I can't complain too much.

    Make sure you're caught up on your Marvel movies before seeing it for the best experience, this one is much less of a standalone story than Dr. Strange and Ant Man.

    Strong 7 to a Light 8, out of 10.

    ★★★★

    Much like Rakka, Blomkamp's previous release from his new studio, this ends right as the story starts to get really good. Hopefully this is successful enough to incentivize those involved to finish the story.

    As it stands this is a really interesting technical showcase for some fantastic CG and prosthetic effects. If you can stomach it, this is pretty fun watch.

    Dofus - Book I: Julith

    ★★★★

    The French studio Ankama is widely known for their MMORPGs Dofus and its sequel Wakfu. The latter of which got its own TV series produced in-house in the late 2000's to allow the game's creators to retain creative control. This series is how I was eventually introduced to the franchise, as its Kickstarter-backed English dub was brought to Netflix in 2014. Despite the dub being hit or miss at times, I found it hard not to be fascinated by all…

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    Arrival is my kind of movie. Atypical science fiction with a story that gets better the more you think about it. Fantastic performance by Amy Adams that will likely be considered one of the best of the year. I loved it and highly recommend you catch it as well, go in as blind as you can though.

    Light to Decent 9 out of 10.
