After the Amazing Spider-Man films ended up failing hard, his MCU incarnation had a lot to live up to. Tom Holland’s version first debuted in Captain America: Civil War and showcased him as the bumbling socially awkward teen who tries his best to balance school and his super hero life all while keeping his identity a secret. Spider-Man: Homecoming was…serviceable. It wasn’t an amazing movie by any means but it did introduce Peter Parker nicely.

Fast forward almost three years later and we have Spider-Man: Far From Home. It takes place after the events of Endgame (so if you somehow haven’t seen it yet, now’s a good time to do so) and follows Peter trying to live a normal life in the aftermath of the snap (this movie refers to it as “the blip”).

So how does this film fare? Let’s find out.

Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse Review

My first novella, City of Kaiju, is available for pre-order. Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Check it out when it launches, February 12th, 2019.

Spider-Man’s had a troubling history when it comes to cinema. The friendly neighborhood hero hasn’t had a breakout hit, even with his entry into the MCU, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the upcoming sequel Far From Home. Even with Venom, which I reviewed already, had its fair share of problems that made it difficult for Sony to bounce back. I was cautiously optimistic when they announced the Spider-verse movie that I was hesitant about seeing it since most trailers can look awesome but the films themselves are not worth the effort.

So when I heard that Spider-verse was getting good reviews, I wanted to see for myself. Sure enough, I had a fun time. So let’s get into it and see where these worlds take us.

I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and how they made superhero movies a viable genre, so much so that people are discussing Black Panther getting an Oscar nomination. Before that, superhero movies were either campy, mediocre, or downright terrible. Granted, there are still films made today that aren’t under the MCU banner that have varying reception. And even before Spider-Man Homecoming, there was a reboot of the Spider-Man series that didn’t go over too well. In that vein, came one of Spider-Man’s iconic rivals. Venom.

When the trailer for this launched, it excluded the title character to keep the mystery. Since then, he’s become somewhat of a question mark and people try to figure out what role it had in the film. Now that the film’s out, I figured I’d at least check it out. So, let’s see how this goes down. Continue reading “Venom Review”
