Far From Home:
I loved the playback to those we lost .
Zendya's melancholy sarcastic MJ is growing on me.
I love the Happy and Aunt May stuff.
Gyllenhaal as Mysterio was great and I liked the change on his back story and his connection to Tony.
The action was fantastic.
They really brought the old cartoon feeling of "not knowing what was real" to the story soooo well. I was questioning things the whole time.
Mysterio was successfully done.
I liked that they also utilized Fury and Hill in the story as well.
The fight sequences were beautiful
The battle at the end was visually and emotionally done well.
So many twists and turns.
The final moments were the most jaw dropping in comic book film history
The post credit scenes defiantly point us in a possible Secret War direction.
