Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

I said before the movie was out, that if anyone was going to handle the emotional impact of Tony Stark’s death, it was Tom Holland. He can act and the guy can really pull on your emotional strings and drag your sorry ass into tears. Yet Spider-Man: Far From Home takes the easy way out. It tries to avoid the emotions and diverts us away from sadness with a more humour filled approach. Can’t say I’m mad about it but I’m not exactly thrilled either.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

In an era where it’s almost impossible to avoid superhero movies and shows, Spider-Man: Homecoming finds a fresh way to portray a story of a superhero in the overly exhausting Marvel Universe. It adds a fresh take on the superhero phenomena, it brings us back to the excitement of having these superheroes exist, but it also asks us to keep our feet on the ground. And while I would not give Spider-Man: Homecoming the highest slot in my favourite Marvel movie lineup, I feel like it will always have a special place in my heart for making me appreciate the simpler things in life.

But here’s to attempting the impossible!

Eight new-to-me actors I saw in 2013 and would love to see more

It feels like I haven’t done one of these list posts in a while and when I read Ruth’s posts about five new-to-her actors she’d like to see more of on Flixchatter, I was eager to do the same. The idea sounded great and I didn’t even mind that I had a lot of thinking to do when it came to actually listing these actors. Instead of picking actors from 2012 and/or 2013 movies, I’m simply splitting them into kids/teens and adults who caught my eye in movies I saw in 2013.

The Impossible (2012)

TheImpossible

This post contains spoilers but in order to keep you from them I wrote this sentence.

The Impossible is a perfect example of a movie that has a big impact with its realistic take on the disaster that shocked the world. I’m not going to lie, there are moments in the movie that will be in my mind for a long time because of its cringe worthy showcase of battle wounds and emotions. Now, weeks later, after I thought my emotions had gone away, I re-watched some scenes and all of those emotions came rushing back. You simply can’t forget The Impossible because it thrives on the one thing that we all can relate to: survival.
