    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★

    Ironman 4 far from home..I mean Spider-Man is another slot into the ever expanding Marvel universe and not a good addition at that. Home coming was a film that felt like it was trying to be a different film and This doesn’t have an identity. 

    There is just no character or personality there. Tom Holland has the charisma and passion for the character of Peter Parker but the writers clearly don’t.

    Ghost in the Shell is the kind of film that after rewatching it for the 16th time i still find myself wanting to come back to it. It is probably the quintessential cyberpunk flick that really shows what anime is capable of. It is tonally consistent, full of subtext with political undertones, philosophy and visual symbolism, it has an amazing score by Kenji Kawai and a vast futuristic setting topped with one of the best character studies i've seen from any medium.

    I can honestly say that it isn't for everyone but it's one my personal favorites.
