Review: Onward (2020)
You can never fault Pixar for lack of imagination, and their latest, the fantastical-set Onward, is no different. The film centers on two elf brothers, voiced by MCU stars Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, living in a world that is very similar to our own, except that it is inhabited by magical creatures (like the Monsters films, in that sense).
Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
Not only is the latest Spider-Man film the best yet (and I’m including the previous Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire iterations, although I haven’t seen all of them), but it’s one of the best films of 2019. Far From Home arrives on the heels of the massively successful and well-received ending to this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and is not afraid to dig into deeper themes that are relevant to the final Avengers installment.
