Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home

So many muddled thoughts after this one. Firstly, it felt too soon after Avengers. I needed more time to process what had happened, and I don’t get why this movie is the end of the current phase rather than the huge epic that Avengers was. And then, I’ve been so in love with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, he’s been the best thing in the Avengers for a while, but this one didn’t quite hit the same mark. I guess he’s changed since the events of the previous Marvel movies.

Having gotten through the Avengers Endgame ordeal with only minor spoilers, attention now turns back to Agents of Shield. Previous seasons, we have paused watching this show because there are links to the big bad Marvel world and we didn’t want to go around spoiling ourselves as that would just be silly. Turns out, we needn’t have worried. There aren’t any spoilers in season six of Agents of Shield, due to several reasons.

Some of the recent Marvel news that has been filtering out of Hollywood has made me feel like this is a film series I just don’t want to follow anymore. Combine that with how much I didn’t enjoy the two-part Infinity War and Endgame story, and I was losing interest by the second. I was confident that every single film that went by was getting lower and lower scores from me and that it was all going to hell in a handbasket.

I rated Infinity War a 1 out of 5, and this movie gets a 2 because it left me slightly less despondent and down in the dumps about everything. But only marginally. There was more to like in here. They did the time travel thing I like of revisiting existing activities from a different angle (seeing Starlord dancing outside of his headphones was hilarious), only slightly tinged by not being able to remember it all from first time round.

So, this was probably my second favourite Marvel movie after Black Panther. It was good and inspirational and nice and the music was incredible. I wish all movies were set in the 90s because omg those songs. On the one hand, Carol Danvers is an incredible hero. Your normal but awesome fighter pilot military woman who then gets next level powers to defend the universe from the big bad.

Weirdly, I wasn’t really looking forward to it. I liked the first one, and it’s Paul Rudd for crying out loud, but I just felt a bit meh about it. Thankfully, the movie was really good. Funny, emotional in places, and with a good story that makes sense. There was that usual bit of ‘what the hell is going on I don’t remember any Marvel movies I’m going to have to watch all of them again’ thing which was kinda annoying, but once past that, it was great.

100% but not the end

100% but not the end

Just a celebratory post to have reached 100% completion on the main Spider-Man game. I think this is the only game that isn’t Tomb Raider that I’ve played to completion. And yet somehow there is still more to do with three DLC expansions to get 100% on. It’s not like Marvel to have more content than it’s possible to keep up with!
