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.

Onward

‘Onward’ is a 2020 animated Fantasy movie by Pixar. ‘Onward’ was in theaters still when the quarantine was put in place, but you can now stream it on Disney+. Which I’m sure a lot of parents are thankful for. ‘Onward’ follows the story of two elf brothers who are given a gift by their deceased dad, they are not allowed to open it until they are both sixteen or older. The gift is a magic staff that allows them to bring back their dad for one day. They are missing a piece and are now on a quest to retrieve it in order to bring their dad back.

‘Onward’ has a blockbuster cast starring Tom Holland (Spider-man: Homecoming.), Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Parks and Recreation.), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld), and Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures, The Help.), plus many others.

The question with ‘Onward’ is not if it is good or not, but how good is it? Pixar hasn’t made a bad film, and at this point, I don’t think they are capable of it. Pixar always comes up with the most original ideas such as ‘Toy Story’, ‘A Bug’s Life’, ‘Inside Out’, ‘CoCo’, and ‘Monsters INC.’ Not only are their movies original, they also hit you in the feels harder than any other animated movies. You know it’s coming when you watch a Pixar film, and ‘Onward’ isn’t any different. So how does ‘Onward’ stack up? It does drag a little bit in the middle but is pulled all back together in the end. If this movie doesn’t at least make you tear up, you’re not human. The casting is great, Tom Holland and Chris Pratt are perfect for their roles. ‘Onward’ is another hit out of the park for Pixar and is going to go down as a classic with their other films. It is a must see, and I give it a 8.5/10.
