    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★

    I need to let this film sit and marinate for a while.

    Sony has also especially requested that we stay mute on the major plot reveals and details...

    “Be their hero, Clark. Be their angel, be their monument, be anything they need you to be... or be none of it. You don't owe this world a thing. You never did.”

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    Spider-Man: Homecoming is actually-surprisingly-legitimately a wonderful wonderful film. After three misfires in a row and a needless, by-committee reboot (Sorry Andrew), Marvel has successfully rescued my favourite superhero from the creatively inept clutches of Sony to make an excellent Spidey adventure.

    The flick is easily one of the best MCU films and quite possibly the best Spider-Man film (need to rewatch 2004's Spider-Man 2 for confirmation).
