The Spider-Man Origin Story →

Chris McKenna, one of the writers of Spider-Man: No Way Home, explains:

If you look backward and go, "This was an origin story that took place over three stories to get this Peter Parker to this place where he's stripped-down, anonymous, has no billionaire benefactor, has been through the sacrifice of what it really means to have this power and what that responsibility that goes along with that is, and is now having to look for how to pay rent." I think that would be really satisfying, I think that'd be really cool.

This is exactly how I look at it. A fucking masterpiece.

Before Sunrise

Pete of wrote:

This is about a guy who is traveling Europe by train and meets a girl on his last day. After an interlude in the lounge car together he talks her into spending the rest of the night walking Vienna with him before his plane the next day. The rest of the movie is just about them talking as they travel through Vienna. Sounds ridiculously boring right?

Yep, Before Sunrise sounds like another stereotypical chick flick. But since this Pete gave this a glowing review, I figured I'd check it out for myself.

The movie did not disappoint.

The style of the movie was done in a way that was simple, minimalist, and forces you to focus on one thing -- the dialogue. And that's a really good thing because the stuff they talk about is so timeless yet so refreshing. I love the dialogue so much, I've watched the movie four times already. And every time I do it, I learn something new.

Instant favorite. And the sequel is great too.
