    “I used to think that my life was a tragedy, but now I realize, it's a comedy”

    People in the film community, from Steven Spielberg to that guy you sat behind at an Avengers movie that one time, have been predicting that the superhero bubble is going to burst for about 8 years now. It’s probably true that, like the western, interest in these comic book characters will wane and popular culture will move on to something else.

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    Sharik: 5 | Kyle: 4.5 | Simon: 4.5 | Jacob: 4.5

    “I don’t think Tony would have done what he did, if he didn’t know you were going to be here after he was gone”

    While it’s far from perfect (pun intended), Spider-Man: Far From Home is one of the web-heads best outings and falls into the upper echelon of MCU movies. The film understands the core essence of Peter Parker/Spider-Man and deeply explores and even questions his mantra of ‘with great…
