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.
In this new movie, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is now a full-fledged member of the Kingsmen, a spy agency masquerading as a posh tailor shop. When a rejected Kingsman applicant works with an insane drug lord called Poppy (Julianne Moore) to take revenge and destroy all the Kingsmen headquarters, Eggsy and remaining survivor Merlin (Mark Strong) go to America to seek help from their spy cousins, called Statesmen, who own a far more profitable whiskey business as a front than their English counterpart.

We're now in the summer blockbuster season! I've been waiting for this since 2012, after The Avengers came out and they announced the sequel for May 1, 2015. :')
Though 2014 wasn't a remarkable year for Hollywood, 2015 is looking good. Every entertainment website on the internet, whether of note or not, has already listed their most anticipated movies for the year, so I shan't add my voice to the chatter. (I agree with most of them anyway. Besides, if you read my blog often enough, you already know what film I want to watch the most this year.)
