🕷 Spiderman: Homecoming

Twofer! Mona and I made a Thursday night movie trip to see Spiderman: Homecoming. Here were our thoughts.

Ajay: The old Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies were a little cheesy but endearing. The Andrew Garfield versions always felt like what Spider-Man would be like if a 15-year-old made it while they were moody and hopped up on Aderol.

This version of Spiderman is somewhere in the middle, but with an integration with the Marvel universe and a feeling that this is always how Marvel felt like Spiderman should be. Fun, fast, endearing, a little immature, and pure fun. There are lots of laugh out loud moments, from Tony Stark and Mr. Parker himself. Highly recommended summer fun.

Mona: Cool. 🕸🐦🤣

🤢 The Big Sick

Got a chance to check out The Big Sick last night, one of this summer’s movies that everyone’s been raving about. Some thoughts below.

Ajay: You might know Kumail Nanjiani from Silicon Valley. In this movie he ends up telling a story from his real life, playing himself. It’s a really well-done account of what it’s like navigating the world of American romance, and ultimately times where things are almost inhumanely awkward and crushingly tense.

It’s a great love story, and an even better story about being yourself, standing up for who you are, and life as a Pakistani Muslim in today’s America. We both laughed out loud, and a lot. If you’re South Asian, there’s a lot here to enjoy. A must see!

Mona: Cute! 💋💩🏥

🦖 Colossal

Ajay: I actually rather enjoyed this movie. It’s a quirky take on monster movies that certainly deserves the hype it’s getting. Anne Hathaway turns in a great performance as a quirky player in this world, and Jason Sudekis plays her pal in a way that is familiar, with a twist. It’s not exactly what you would expect from a movie in this genre.

Mona: Dumb. 💩💩💩
