I saw the trailer around the time that I watched Crazy Rich Asians and I thought it looked cute; big bonus being that it was filmed here in Toronto, lol. My friend and I were in the mood for a rom-com so we decided to check it out, lol.

Okay, so I’m usually pretty slow in watching movies that are just released and whatnot, but I just had to see this movie (and so did my mum–so it became a family event). I still remembered much of the basic plot of this story from the book (review) so I was curious to see how they adapted it.

I love The Thick of It and In the Loop (review) so when I found out that Armando Iannucci made a movie about Soviet Russia–and you know me, I studied Soviet Russian history and all–I just had to watch it.

At last, I got around to watching Black Panther (funnily enough on the same day as Spider-man: Homecoming; talk about different movies tonally) right before I went on vacation, lol. How I did that whilst packing and taking care of other things, I don’t know. But here we are. And, as always, SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the movie yet!

Okay, so this is the third iteration of Spider-Man and granted I was not initially interested in watching because it’s been through how many versions. I watched the Tobey Maguire version, never saw Andrew Garfield’s version (meant to get around to it but just never did). And of course I grew up with the weekday afternoon cartoon. So when I watched him appear in civil war, I thought to make it a point to check out his solo outing and after watching Infinity War, I finally did. SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the movie yet!
