'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (2019) Review: You Can Take The Spider Out of New York... It might seem unbelievable, but back in the days of the early 2000s, superhero films were a rare breed. Good ones, even rarer. Mostly they were a collection of films that were graded on a curve rather than outright successes. Yet even at a time when the best that we got was a "good try", a few stood out as truly excellent. One of which, was 'Spider-Man 2'. A film that proved you could have a film about super people and still feel like they were grounded in the real world. Nothing was more relatable than watching Spider-Man struggle with paying his rent, taking care of his elderly aunt, and failing at love all at the same time.These days, that kind of storytelling is more or less old spandex. The very best of the genre exceed the basic benchmark of relatability. Now, it's not enough to relate to your heroes, their films must also be inspiring, with groundbreaking special effects, and state of the art fight choreography. With so many of them coming out, standing out is harder than ever. Especially if you're a follow up to one of the biggest and best superhero films of all time, that featured every single hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After a film like that, who cares abotu a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man?Well after his stint fighting Thanos, dying, then…
006 Late To The Party: Tobey Maguire Spider-Man It's here! Spider-Man Far From Home is swinging into cinemas for the...6th time? Well if you count solo films. Yet despite his history on the big screen, one podcast co-host never really got into the wall-crawler when she was little. While the other cried seeing Uncle Ben dying in Tobey Maguire's arms. Thanks for listening!
'Sprinter' (2019) Review: Goes For Gold For many reviewers, talking about independent films is a bit of a struggle. Often times, they aren't as polished as your typical cinema fare. That's either a result of a next to nothing budget, or startling inexperience of the filmmakers. Yet despite their shortcomings, these films are the ones delivered with the utmost care. It's a welcome break from a summer of mass produced cgi extravaganzas, and sometimes, they're just as impressive as their big blockbuster brothers. That's definitely the case with 'Sprinter', a wildly successful award winning effort from director Storm Saulter.The movie follows the life of young high schooler Akeem Sharpe. Jamaican. Teenager. Track star. He's a young man of many labels but he's still not sure which one best describes him. He's on a bit of a journey of self discovery when he suddenly beats the 200m high school track record and is set off on a course for super stardom. With the help of his estranged brother, a former runner himself, and his unemployed father, who frequents the company of both Wray and his nephew, Akeem will have to discover what it means to be Akeem, before it's too late to turn back. All while giving Tom Cruise a run for his money for actual running on screen. Though 'Sprinter' is indeed an entertaining film, it is strikingly similar to things seen before. It has all the trappings of your typical sports film,…
