OH SWEET CHEESE AND CRACKERS!!! FINALLY, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is officially among us and I have been SALIVATING for this moment. C’mon, no introduction needed. LET’S GET TO IT!
“With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, Peter asks Doctor Strange for help. When a spell goes wrong, dangerous foes from other worlds start to appear, forcing Peter to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”
Listen, I expected greatness. This film had every building block ready to go, but I had NO IDEA it was going to somehow exceed those expectations. “Spider-Man: No Way Home” had everything it needed to hammer home a near perfect film for most movie watchers. A well played story, absolutely exceptional performances, especially from our lead man, Tom Holland, and a surprisingly large amount of fan service that still felt (mostly) natural to the story. Which is incredibly hard to do, in my opinion.
What “Spider-Man: No Way Home” does for the past, present, and future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is MARVELous (ha.) It pays full attention to the past, referencing films as early as the first phase. Obviously, many events from the past and their consequences to the present day are shown in full effect. From as little as words said to one another to as big as Thanos’ snap.
The present day is surely affected in many ways more than one. With reality literally ripping itself open, what is real is surely questioned for all involved in the film. How does Peter respond to the world knowing who he truly is, and what does it take to make everything seem normal again?
As for the future? Good lord. As you could tell, I am being incredibly vague with this review because I do not want to spoil anything for those who like to get a taste of a film by reading my content. However just know, by film’s end, the future of the MCU is set in mystery, desire, and hope.
Now this section is for the fans. The die hards. The ones that have been here since day one and even before, and even the ones that came late but are equally fanatics. When I tell you that this was one of the best movie experiences as a fan… THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST F*#&IN MOVIE EXPERIENCES AS A FAN!!! Oh my lord, fans erupted as loud or even louder than Endgame. Louder than Star Wars episode 7. Louder than “Wonder Woman.” It was a freaking fantastic experience. Maybe even for someone outside of the fandom, just watching the fans reaction is entertainment in of itself.
While being a slightly barren post due to keeping it light and kind to those who haven’t seen it yet. I feel like this gives ya’ll enough of a reason enough to understand this movie is the real deal. “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is going to be an experience I won’t soon forget, or ever. This brings together years of superhero film history and smashing it together in a cohesive and fluid movie fit to entertain the masses. Buy your tickets now folks, cause this is going to be selling out often and for a good long time.
