2021 was definitely a busy year for movies. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to see any of the Foreign Language films currently in Oscar contention like Parallel Mothers, Drive My Car, The Worst Person in the World, or Petite Maman.

Honorable mentions go to Spencer, Passing, Luca, Shiva Baby, and Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It.

Spider-Man: No Way Home finds Peter Parker (Tom Holland) dealing with the fallout of his identity being exposed. Many people believe that he is a murderer and the lives of his loved ones are being compromised because of his actions. He seeks out Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell to make people forget that he is Spider-Man. However, the spell goes haywire and the Spider-Man villains from other live-action universes with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire in the titular role are now causing havoc in the MCU.

Top 10 Films of 2018

2018 is officially over and what a year it has been. 2018 has been a bit disappointing movie wise because while I liked a lot of films, this year’s films ultimately didn’t stick with me as they have done before, there weren’t many films that I absolutely loved and remembered. And keep in mind that I still haven’t seen some of the newer released Oscar buzz films like If Beale Street Could Talk or Burning.

Honorable Mentions: Never Goin’ Back, Eighth Grade, Black Panther, The Hate U Give,  Mission Impossible: Fallout, Annihilation, and Bad Times at the El Royale.  These are all great films that I debated putting on this list, but didn’t make the cut.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse surrounds Miles Morales, a teenager who gets bitten by a radioactive spider, he stumbles on the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker, who is in the midst of fighting against Kingpin who opens up a collider to different dimensions that allowed various spider people including Spider-Gwen, Spider-Noir, and Spider-Ham to come into his dimension. Now everyone must try to get back to their dimension before reality collapses onto itself.

Into the Spider-Verse is an utter delight. It’s nice to see an origin of a story we’ve seen a million times before, but through a different perspective. Miles is a worthy Spider-Man and I’m glad that more people will know his name because of this film. The voice cast gathered for this film is amazing. Shameik Moore is a stand out as Miles. I can’t think of a better person than Jake Johnson to play a middle aged, worn out Peter Parker. Nic Cage was amazing as Spider-Noir, and as a huge fan of John Mulaney myself, he totally encompasses Spider-Ham’s persona, though I wish there was more of him.
