We saw "Spider-Man: Far From Home."
I loved it. It was fun, had twists and was exciting.
I have seen all of the Spider-Man movies with all the different actors playing him. Tom Holland is the best. He is able to be a 16 year old and a genius superhero. He has his foibles as any teenager has and it's incredibly endearing. The actress who plays MJ, Zendaya is also a good actress and is perfect as Spider-Man's love interest. Jacob Batalon is back as his best friend Ned. Samuel L. Jackson is always good as Nick Fury. Jake Gyllenhaal is perfect as Quentin Beck/Mysterio.
The story revolves around Peter and his friends going on a class trip to Europe. Peter's Aunt May, played well by Marisa Tomei, insists he pack his Spider-Man costume "just in case." He gets contacted by Happy Hogan, played by Jon Favreau and told to contact Nick Fury who has been trying to reach him.
Peter keeps being reminded of the mentor he lost, Ironman. Of course something does come up and Peter must help without giving his secret of being Spider-Man away.
It's a very fun movie. The teenagers, the stereotypical chaperones, the drama and special effects really work together well. Make certain you stay through the credits. There are two scenes you will want to see.
So go. Have fun. Eat popcorn.
