Spider-Man: No Way Home

Oh noes!

Yes, I’m watching a super-hero movie again.

Wow! It’s I Zimbra on the soundtrack!

And now it’s… Liquid Liquid!? I’m so aboard with these New York Downtown music choices.

I’m enjoying this movie so far, but it’s like… it should look better than it does? It’s so… digital. It just looks so digital. From 2002. You can’t actually see the pixels, but it feels like you should. I’m guessing the shot above is mostly rendered? For no particular reason? If it’s not, they’ve managed to make real shots look really fake.

This is quite amusing.

OK, it’s a bit slow now, but amiable.

Now it’s kinda boring?


There’s now been an hour (at least) of “character development”. I’ve never been so bored in my life.

I mean, I do like some bits of this. And it’s really a perfect fan service movie — people nostalgic for … well, everything… are getting what they want.

But… there’s like nothing interesting in the plot? It’s like they forgot to write a plot? And there’s so many boring scenes inbetween the fun ones? It’s like… if they had written a proper movie, and had the Spider-Men fun stuff be like a third of that proper movie, then it would have been awesome. Instead it’s just like those fan service bits, and not much else.

Spider-Man: No Way Home. Jon Watts. 2021.
