CM Podcast 216 – Spider-Man: Far From Home Movie

Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 2nd Spider-Man movie came out July 2nd 2019 and it is titled:

Spider-Man: Far From Home

We went and saw it last Sunday. I was very excited for this movie because the previews had Jake Gyllenhaal playing Mysterio, a long time villain in the Spider-Man comics. This is the first time he will be brought to the big screen and I thought they had perfect casting with Jake.

I thought the movie movie was near perfect (listen to the podcast to find out why it’s not flawless). Jon on the other hand had 1 big plot point that he could not get over so it made the movie less enjoyable. I tried to talk him out of this sticking point but he will not budge. Does he have a point? Listen and let me know.

The things I like about the movie:

Humor – there are tons of funny scenes and situational comedy which is a hallmark of Spider-Man comics and previous movies.

Romance – Peter is a young romantic and he tries his best to win the affection of Mary Jane.

Mystery – who is Mysterio? Is he friend or foe? Watch the movie and find out!

Action – Spider-Man has some intense battles. Does everyone survive? Find out!

I feel, if you liked Homecoming then you will definitely like Far From Home and hopefully you will like the 3rd movie: Spider-Man: Home Alone. 🙂

Your comics pal,

Jim
