Who doesn’t love a good old road trip? In fact, imagine one with the love of your life on the same vehicle with you. Honestly this is supposed to be very eventful, until someone calls in a drone strike on a fellow classmate. Yes, this is the brilliance created by Director Jon Watts.

Far from home was released on the 26th of June 2019. The movie tethers around the after effects of the Avengers Endgame’s actions as there was a ‘blip’ in time as it’s called as younger siblings get older than their siblings due to lost time, it is kind of hilarious. At the start of the movie there’s a video clip dedicated in memory of the fallen Avengers so we have that ‘after Avengers’ effect, this seemed to be act to actively link the feel of the movie to the super heroes. In an already planned to the last chapter of a school trip, by Peter Parker to snag the girl of his dreams ‘Michelle Jones’ known as ‘MJ’, then comes the unexpected distress call by the Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D commander, Nick Fury about an imminent attack by alien creatures known as the ‘elementals’, naturally Peter turns down the call, (who wouldn’t?) only to get the entire trip hijacked by Nick Fury. Spiderman has to switch in-between being present during the trip and trying to get to MJ and trying to stop an elemental from turning the whole of Prague to Barbecue.

Peter’s nemesis in the movie is a dude known as Beck who claims to have his technology stolen by Tony Stark, a highly intelligent computer network called ‘Edith’ controlled remotely by a pair of sun glasses, Beck impersonates Mysterio who seems to be helping peter and steals the glasses from him or rather peter gave it to him, thinking of Mysterio, of all people to ld the Avengers, yes that was a pretty stupid move.

Despite all his efforts to get close to his crush this all get mixed uo in a series of stumbling drama by a classmate, Peter initiates a drone strike and gets a scolding from Nick fury to get comfort from Mysterio, but that’s not where the major misdirection originated from, it turns out that the ‘elementals’ actually turn out to be holograms created by Beck in an attempt to get even with Tony Stark for stealing his creation.

Despite the whole techy new Spiderman and all, Tom Holland still has the friendly neighborhood feel (he even said that), Peter and MJ’s romance is quite dorky, nothing new. It’s all about trying to live up to Tony’s expectations and become the leader of the Avengers. It’s a quite adventurous road trip as marvel actually brings us good comedy in Far From Home, we were all rooting for peter and ‘MJ’ to ride into the sunset anyways.

Avengers 4: Everybody calm down

For those people chanting "Death to Thanos" you might want to reconsider

Rumours suggest that the upcoming spinoff of the Avengers sequel to its predecessor (Avengers: infinity war) it  portrays a Solid unification against Thanos. The ending of Infinity war was really emotional, it was painful and kinda annoying to watch our beloved heroes crumble like dust at the hands of Thanos and his infinity stones.
But will Thanos really be defeated?, I do not think so, Thanos is pretty bad ass to go down predictably, even when help has been called up front to squash him (Death watch 1977), the whole thing went sideways and none of the surviving infinity warriors can defeat him, not iron man, definitely not captain marvel, my theory however is that he could be locked up like in one of Barry Allen's meta human traps in The Flash , trapped in some sort of time warp.
The movie is expected to be released on 3rd May 2019 and it's untitled, just "Avengers 4".

Nothing like having a hot girl climb into your freaking window and offer you the night of your life, well, not that kinda night in a sense, just a little more outdoors. The movie is based on the novel 'paper towns' by the famous author John Green.

This is another tear inducing teenage melodrama kicked of by Margo Roth Spiegelman (Cara Delevigne) to teach a lesson in self discovery to her florida high school mates via an eventful road trip.
