It’s a coming-of-age film that happens to have a comic book super hero in it.
It had heart in the beats where it needed most and its quite endearing to see a superhero struggling with his worst adversaries—his teenage crush and hormones. It didn’t need to plough through a hero’s existential crisis or bear the weight of building a franchise, or worse, trudging through the origin story all over again.
Shoutout to Jon Watts for pulling this off. To be honest, I don’t know who he was until this film. Tom Holland and Michael Keaton really shined in their roles.
This is a 4 out of 5 for me. Thoroughly enjoyable and is more than enough to shed and forget the baggage of the previous Spider-Man movies.
I’ve learnt a lot from this video.

I’m getting increasingly tired of Facebook. To me, its trying to be everything to everyone and in their attempt to be the numero uno, they’ve (forcefully) cramped everything-remotely-social you could possibly conceive into one single site.
(I fail to understand how the Facebook app on iOS is 450 megabytes)
There’s roughly 3 categories of posts on my feed:
Rants about anything, and everything under the sun.
Posts of overly-staged fake-perfect moments in someone’s life.
Sure I could filter and/or unfollow these but the algorithm keeps pulling the same type of posts over and over again.
No more. As of last week, Facebook is no longer on iPhone’s Home Screen. I’m no longer receiving any notifications of any sort. And I hope to delete the App in the near future. Unfortunately, I still use it for work.
Let’s check back in after 30 days.
I can’t recall when was the last time I penned my thoughts here or anywhere else.
So much had happened in the past year that I’m not sure where to even begin documenting any of it.
How about we just wipe the slate clean and start over?
