Spider-Man: No Way Home

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” (2021) is the newest installment in the Marvel Spider-Man series. This is easily the most hyped up Marvel movie since End Game and Infinity War, and is staying sold out everywhere. They bring out the big guns with this one starring Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), John Favreau (Iron Man), Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained), Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man), and Tobey Maguire (Spider-Man).

Like I said earlier, huge cast, and the biggest Spiderman to date. In case you didn’t know what it’s about, it picks up where the last one left off where everyone knows Spider-Man’s true identity. Peter Parker (Holland) turns to Doctor Strange (Cumberbatch) to come up with a spell to make everyone forget his identity, Peter won’t quit talking and messes up Doctor Strange’s spell, which accidentally rips a tear into reality and opens up the multiverse. Meaning it opens up different realities bringing the majority of the Spider-Man villains from all the Spider-Man movies into this one. Also allowing the two other Spider-Man’s (Garfield, and Maguire) to enter this one and help. Can the three of them save this universe and send the villains back to their own realities?

This is huge for Spider-Man and MCU fans, this is the biggest same movie crossover to date, and is opening doors for the other superhero movies to follow suit. So, like any Marvel movie I review it’s not a question of is it good but how good is it? As I’ve already mentioned, it’s huge for Spider-Man fans. It’s a little different than what I was thinking, but it’s still great. I was expecting a little more mayham than what was delievered, but the Nostalgia factor alone is worth seeing it. The entire theater started clapping when Garfield and Maguire entered the movie. It was really cool to see all the villains together and their respected superhero, and like I said it opens the door for the rest of the MCU and the multiverse, so be on the lookout for that. *cough Doctor Strange cough*. Plus, the big fight scene was pretty epic. I give it a 10/10.

Let it Snow

‘Let it Snow’ is another Netflix original movie featuring a star studded young cast including Kiernan Shipka (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Jacob Batalon (Spider-man Far from Home, Spider-man Homecoming), Odeya Rush (Goosebumps), Liv Hewson (Santa Clarita Diet), and the lone older actress Joan Cusack. ‘Let it Snow’ follows five different stories of high school students on Christmas Eve, whose town is hit with a snow storm. Each one is in a different place in their lives romantically speaking, and are just trying to figure it all out.

I typically don’t like romantic movies, and feel that November is too early to start the whole Christmas movie thing, but I really do like the cast and their shows/movies they have stared in. So i figured it was worth a shot anyway. This is not a real fast paced movie, it’s more of a chilled laid back type movie, focusing more on a couple of the stories and a little less on the other three. However, I liked it. The story isn’t very complex, and doesn’t go into depth, but the acting from these young actors, and actresses is good. They manage to keep the story entertaining. So if you’re looking for a more relaxed, laid back Christmas movie to start off the Christmas season, let it be ‘Let it Snow’.
