Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home

*WARNING: SPOILERS*

Spider-Man: Far From Home is in an unenviable position: having to follow Avengers: Endgame, now the highest grossing film ever. Endgame was essentially a monumental conclusion to the Infinity Saga that said goodbye to characters we’ve loved for over a decade. It was soul crushing. For anything directly afterwards, it’s tricky not to fall flat.

However, choosing Spider-Man was wise. It narrows the scale, allowing audiences to see how the Blip (the five years post-snap) actually affected people. This transition works well for the franchise, with the student “in memoriam” video for Stark, Rogers, and Romanoff (don’t – I’m still devastated) shifting it in a more light-hearted direction.

Review: Yesterday

Yesterday is a film with a lot on its plate, which results in a final product that is, at best, reasonably entertaining, and at worst, one step away from being a confusing mess. Whilst I did find the film enjoyable, a few key flaws prevent it from being a wholly successful romcom. Overall, despite a talented cast, and interesting premise, Yesterday is a film that promises more than it can ultimately deliver.
