    A lot of cool stuff here but I really wanted to hear about the making of that amazing score. Even so, the part about the finale of the movie adds some more interesting things to think about.

    Ummmm ok. At least I got a good laugh out of those goombas.

    Spider-Man: Far from Home


    It’s another Marvel movie and I don’t have much more to say than my usual praises and criticisms. 

    Some of the humor is good, and some of it is dumb. Some of the cgi is alright, and some of it looks too fake. The more “trippy” sequences kinda felt like they were trying too hard to bring something fresh and interesting, and yet they still managed to feel incredibly generic. 
    A lot of the less humorous writing feels very basic…

    I understand why this won best picture. Simple and easily accessible, yet not devoid of artistry and meaning. The fantastical feeling amplified by the colors and music really makes the movie.

    It’s sad that some people immediately reject it for being weird or for “promoting beastiality” or whatever; the metaphorical and ever-prominent  meaning could not be more obvious.
