ICYMI - YouTube Review HERE
In short, Tom Holland’s best outing as Spider-Man (and Jon Watts’ best directing job to date), but not perfect.
The action, character moments, emotion and “fan service” (for want of a better word since ‘fan service’ seems to sell it a little short) are spectacular.
The second half is everything I wanted and more, but the first half leaves a bit to be desired. Plus, a few of the villains were kind of wasted. But, everything considered, this is a top tier spidey film.
The Phantom Menace would be complete ass if it weren’t for an incredible, albeit tonally inconsistent, third act. The lightsaber battle between Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon and Darth Maul is still the best in Star Wars history, and Duel of the Fates is just 👌🏻 I also think the pod racing stuff is not as bad as people say, but maybe that’s just because everything going on around it is super fucking boring and the “political” dialogue…
In case you don’t know, me and a friend run a YouTube channel where we review movies, make ranking videos and do top 10 lists. We’ll also be starting to cover film news very soon, as well as upgrading our equipment! You can check out the videos linked above 🙂 the reviews feature us both while the most anticipated and favourite films vids are all…
Review below, but please take a second to check out a YouTube vid or 2 first. If you want more Pretty Much It-type banter, watch the vids we did together, and if you want more info, watch Dan’s solo vids (not that kind) 😊
