Far From Home:

  • I loved the playback to those we lost .

  • Zendya's melancholy sarcastic MJ is growing on me.

  • 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.
