Spider-Man: No Way Home | Average Guy Movie Review

  After Quentin Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal) posthumously revealed to the world that he was Spider-Man, Peter Parker (Tom Holland)'s life, and the lives of those around him immediately began to fall apart. In an attempt to put the genie back in the bottle Pete turns to the only person he can... Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). But things rarely work out for the Web-Head, the way he plans. Now he and the good doctor must deal with the multiverse trying to tear itself apart, not to mention the new friends it has brought them. Tom Holland's third solo outing as the MCU's Wall-Crawler is his biggest so far, and yet in some ways it still feels like an adventure with our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. He may be dealing with bigger and bigger threats, but you can still see him taking the time to help the little people (like the lady who bought him a churro), and a lot of that is thanks to Holland.  Whereas with previous versions of Peter Parker it has been a quick transition f

Spider-Man: No Way Home | Moustache Trailer Reaction

We have another trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home , and it's full of surprises. But not necessarily the surprises many fans were expecting. If you've not seen the trailer, or you just want to see it again, check it out below. It seems like only five minutes ago that we were getting excited over the teaser trailer for Tom Holland's upcoming third solo outing as the MCU's Web-Head. Probably because it was. That teaser came with many revelations about Peter Parker's life - and that of those close to him - after Mysterio posthumously revealed the teenager's alter ego. No Way Home  certainly looks to be Holland's biggest and most dangerous solo outing, as Peter Parker faces one hell of a challenge - six or seven of them, in fact. Whereas the teaser revealed how all this came to be, this one focuses more on the consequences of that rather dangerous spell. Much like in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse , it seems Pete's proximity to the cause of this meeting

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME | Moustache Teaser Reaction

The Spider-Man: No Way Home  trailer has finally arrived, and it sure does look good when it's not footage of a phone filming a phone, filmed on a phone! Granted, there's no real difference between this and the leaked version - bar some improved visual effects, and you can actually see what's going on - but it's still good to finally get a look at what is to come. If you haven't seen it, or you just want to watch it again, check out the trailer below... So after that shock ending to Spider-Man: Far From Home  it seems that Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is struggling with his new found fame - or should that be infamy? Not only does the entire world know he's Spider-Man, but he appears to be in the frame for murdering Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) too. That would certainly explain why he needs a certain lawyer to help him. But the Web-Head is also considering more drastic options, courtesy of his old friend (and world saving colleague) Dr Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch),

Spider-Man: Far From Home | Average Guy Movie Review

Eight months after "the snap" was undone, life has returned to a relative degree of normality. Some people are five years older and some are not, a nightmare for most, but more so for teenagers. After all that has gone on, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) wants a break from his duties as the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, so he's heading off for a vacation in Europe with his friends. But Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) has other plans for the Web Head. It seems Fury and his team are having trouble with some monsters of the elemental variety, and the warrior hunting them might need some help. Will Peter get to spend some time with MJ (Zendaya), or will the "Night Monkey" come between them? The gang is all back - in more ways than one - and director Jon Watts is leading them on another great adventure. Marvel appears to have learnt a lot from Spidey's previous solo outing in the MCU. Homecoming suffered from bad trailers spoiling far too much, includi

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME | Another Moustache Trailer Reaction

With Endgame taking the world by storm, we're now in a better place to appreciate the aftermath of what has happened. First up, Spider-Man: Far From Home. Needless to say there will be many spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so if you haven't seen it stop reading now. If you have seen it, but haven't seen the new Far From Home Trailer - or you just want to watch it again - check it out below. *Spoiler Warning*  We join Peter Parker (Tom Holland) at a low point in Far From Home. The poor kid has suffered a lot in his life, having lost his parents and his Uncle Ben, now he has the loss of his friend and mentor to deal with as well. It makes sense that the superhero life would be getting a bit much for him, and that he just wants to take a break, be a kid for a while. Obviously this being a superhero movie, that's not going to happen, no matter how many times he ignores Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) calls. Holland has demonstrated some real talent in

Spider-Man: Far From Home | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Well it has finally arrived, and the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home does not disappoint. Here's what we thought. Needless to say the trailer does contain some spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so read on at your own peril... Not seen the trailer yet? Check it out below: First of all, this is a great trailer, lots of intriguing snippets and no real spoilers - apart from the aforementioned Endgame spoilers anyway. Jon Watts returns as director, continuing to develop the story and characters first seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Peter (Tom Holland) is still working as the friendly neighbourhood wall-crawler, something Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) is aware of. With the help of Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), they are using Pete's alter ego to do some charity work. There might even be some sparks flying between Happy and May. With a school trip to Europe on the cards, the teenage Avenger is looking forward to just being a teenager for a while, even electin

Spider-Man: Homecoming | Average Guy Movie Review

The MCU's version of the webslinger has landed back in New York for his first solo outing. After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is keen to prove himself as an Avenger. But his mentor of sorts - Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) - wants the 15 year old to go back to school and learn what it means to be a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man first. Peter is definitely a kid with a lot on his plate, on top of the usual issues a modern day teenage nerd faces, he's still learning the extent of his abilities and trying to impress Stark. All while trying to bring down a gang selling salvaged alien technology, led by Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton). Without giving us another origin story, Marvel have re-introduced us to the world of Spider-Man. Director Jon Watts has avoided the format of previous movies where the hero acquires his powers, goes through a quick montage to learn what he can do and from then on is unstoppable.
