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

Motherless Brooklyn | Average Guy Movie Review

When his boss is murdered, Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton) - a private detective afflicted with Tourette's - looks into his last case to try and figure out who killed him. Essrog's investigation will see him caught in a web of political conspiracy, as he draws the attention of some of New York's most powerful. Edward Norton has his hands full with Motherless Brooklyn - not that you'd know it. On top of his acting duties the star also serves as writer, director and producer. Taking the book Motherless Brooklyn - the title is eventually explained - a story set in 1999 and adapting it into a movie set in 1957 is a bold move, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't work. Norton and his team have done a good job of recreating 1950's New York in all its glory...and its destitution. Shot in the style of a classic noir detective drama - much like Chinatown and L.A. Confidential - the story cleverly deals with issues of corruption, greed, gentrification, exploitat
