Spider-Man: Far From Home Movie Review – Is It Really Far From Home?

The first in line of the Marvel Universe standalone film after “End Game” is, well, un-surprisingly entertaining. “Spider-Man Far From Home” is not trying to catch its predecessor in terms of revenue of course. But oh boy it does came close for a movie with just one main super hero, quite the opposite of the Avengers. “Spider-Man” opened to generally positive reviews, and in its first week has amassed a bountiful $185 million in North America and nearly $600 million worldwide.

Anna Movie Review – Just Another “Lucy”

Every beast you see in the movie, from elephant to elephant shrew, and every square inch of habitat, from desert sand to belching mud, is computer-created, and one can but marvel at the verisimilitude. If you examined stills from the movie, you might mistake it for a wildlife documentary. Most of the animals, however, must also speak and sing, and that’s where the problems creep in. The hairs on the golden mane of the hero, Simba (Donald Glover), may be present and correct, but, when he delivers dialogue, his great mouth gives a chewy little ripple, as if he had a morsel of baby gazelle stuck in his back teeth. The colossal effort to make him look like a real lion, in other words, collides with the need to turn him into a character, and the mashup is profoundly disconcerting. Disney’s axiom should be revised as follows: “Digital action, which makes everything possible, will seem implausible if the viewer feels that the action he or she is watching has some base elements of cartoon.” Yet cartoons were meant to be a blast.
