Does Whatever a Spider Can
In this article, @moviebeasts writes a fair and honest review of the SEVENTH installment of the modern-day Spider-Man series. Spider-Man: Far From Home was released earlier this month. Featuring a tween Peter Parker and Mary Jane, the film gives the impression of a fairly light-hearted installment. But as the author notes, this version of Spider-Man is going through a challenging time of self-reflection that adds depth to this age-old story.
Previous Spider-Man movies have tackled the idea of what it means to be “Spider-Man” and what it means to be a hero, but this movie had the unique benefit of taking place after two massive movies. As a result, Peter’s motivation toward being Spider-Man is more challenged than it has ever been.– Bryan Ouellette
Overall, this film got an A- by the author’s standards. While he griped that there were too many side characters that were sloppily developed, in the end, the pros outweighed the cons.
I really enjoyed what the filmmakers did with this character [Spider-Man], but I also enjoyed what they did with Mysterio. Without giving anything away, Mysterio has an interesting story, and Jake Gyllenhaal gave the character a captivating screen presence.– Bryan Ouellette
