“Spiderman: No Way Home” was definitely the best Spiderman movie ever made, I really was impressed with that one…

So last Thursday afternoon, I went to see the new Spiderman movie, “No Way” home which is the third film of the Tom Holland trilogy. Before I went to see the newest Spiderman flick, I decided to go back and watch the 3 Tobey Maguire Spiderman movies directed by Sam Raimi and I’ve re-watched the two “Amazing Spiderman” movies with Andrew Garfield. I’m glad I watched all the Spiderman movies before this one ’cause this one had so many surprises, it’s crazy.

And yes, like the title says in this post, “Spiderman: No Way” was surprisingly the best Spiderman movie ever made. All the ones before this one were just “pretty good” but wow, this one “No Way Home” was a real surprise and a major improvement for sure.

The writing was really good… it had a smart script for a change. I gotta be careful to review this movie without big spoilers ’cause there’s still too many that didn’t see this movie yet. The acting of the cast did a very good job as well including Tom Holland. I wasn’t that crazy with Tom as Peter Parker/Spiderman in “Homecoming” and “Far From Home” but Tom’s acting in “No Way Home” was 10 x’s way better. Tom was very good in “No Way Home”, I was impressed with him.

Of course, Willem Dafoe coming back as the Green Goblin, man that was quite a performance too. Willem Dafoe kills it in almost every role he plays over the years in his career but this movie was his best performance for sure. He probably won’t get Oscar nominated for this one but he should, I think it’s worthy. I was blown away with Willem’s performance in this one.

I also thought Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job playing Doctor Strange again, that dude is a great actor as well and I love the Doctor Strange character. After seeing this movie, really makes me want to see the “Doctor Strange” sequel which comes out later this year and I will make sure to see that one.

The action scenes were a blast to watch. It was a fun action movie too and I was impressed with the cinematography and the CGI was surprisingly pretty cool.

Finally a superhero movie that tells a good story and a “smart” story. It was a phenomenal movie and it blew me away. If you thought Marvel couldn’t top “Avengers: Endgame”, I think they just did with “Spiderman: No Way Home”. If you want to go see this movie, I’d suggest you watch all Spiderman movies before this one though or else you’re gonna get confused… yes, that means all the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield flicks.

To the director of “Spiderman: No Way Home” whose name is Jon Watts, bravo to a job well done. I’d give a perfect 10/10. No complaints at all.


Film Of The Day: The Boondock Saints

Happy St. Patty’s. I thought today would be a great day to do an Irish film. The first “Boondock Saints” was really good. The sequel was okay, but the first one was very well made. It stars Sean Patrick Flanery, and Norman Reedus (Daryl in, “The Walking Dead”). It also stars Willem Dafoe.

The film tells the story about twin Irish brothers, who accidentally kills a bunch of thugs. Later, they see it as a calling from God, so they end up killing even more thugs. Willem Dafoe’s character, Det. Paul Smecker, starts to investigate the crimes, but the closer he is to catch the Irish brothers, the more he thinks they just did the right thing.

I first saw this movie on Netflix. I believe it was one of the first movies I watched on Netflix when I first got my account. The writing was really good, and it was a very entertaining, and funny film. True Irish film, indeed. When you watch a film like this, you can tell it was done Irish style. It’s also a great action movie. No car chases. No explosions. You will see a movie full of gun shooting, all the way through. It can get violent. Gory. Plus, Willem Dafoe definitely steals the show. This was one of his best roles in his career.

I’m actually thinking about re-watching this film on Netflix today. It’s still streamable I believe.
