(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

acting 8

directing 8

effects 10

editing 8

writing 8


4.5 out of 5 šŸ™


Definitely the funniest MCU flick ever. And that is a HIGH bar. I wasn’t a big fan of Mysterio as a villain (I was and AM a big fan of Jon Watts using heretofore unused villains) and while Jake Gyllenhaal did an excellent job, he didn’t inspire me like Michael Keaton’s Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. And it continues to take your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in fantastic new directions. And the most important thing I have to say is: Night Monkey. I was NOT a fan of the reveal after the ending but I’m willing to give Watts and his people the benefit of the doubt.







(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 šŸ™, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feelingā€¦not that SW score is scientificā€¦but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
