Review: “Spider-Man: Far from Home” Presents the Illusion of a Good Movie | The New Yorker

We’re getting close to the end of our Marvel Mondays journey — at least for now — with “Spider-Man: Far From Home” (2019). Christy and Nic agree this sequel isn’t as good as the infectiously joyous “Spider-Man: Homecoming” from a couple years earlier, and that it works better as a teenage romantic comedy than an action spectacle. We discuss whether we’d rather be blipped and return or remain on Earth for those five years, what makes Mysterio a good villain and those shocking end credit sequences. We’ll have a review of “Black Widow” next week, so be sure and come back for that. Until then, thanks for hanging out with us, and hope you’re having a great summer.
