‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ review: Peter’s a dumbass in this movie

Since the news broke two weeks ago that Sony and Marvel Studios are parting ways, which has huge implications for the future of Spider-Man and his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I'm dusting off this review of Spider-Man: Far from Home which I meant to post 2 months ago but never got around to polishing until now.

Long time no see! A crazy theory about the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ sequel

If there's anything that can get me out of my writing slump (for now), it's Avengers: Infinity War -- the culmination of all we've been waiting for since we first saw Thanos six years ago -- which I just watched today. Took leave to catch the very first show (which was pretty packed, despite the early hour!) And can I say: WHOA.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ review: Spidey comes Home

Spidey has finally come home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I know we've already seen him in Captain America: Civil War, but with so many characters in that movie, his appearance was more of a side note than anything. But now, we have a movie which focuses on him and his teenage problems while being part of the superhero universe he belongs to, and interacting with his older superhero siblings. We've never seen a Spider-Man movie that does the latter before, because Sony has always hoarded the rights to Spider-Man... until now.

Movies Coming Soon: July 2017

I haven't done this in a while, so I figure out it's a good time to start again. But instead of doing it in three-month chunks, which can be very daunting because there are so many movies to talk about, I'll do it monthly so it'll be more manageable. Besides, release dates change all the time, especially for smaller movies, so doing it monthly will make it more accurate.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ review: HEARTBREAKING.

Captain America: Civil War is heartbreaking. It's a much more sombre film than any in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before, walloping you in the stomach with emotional punches. But it is also one of the best Marvel films to date -- second-best, in my opinion.
