Swinging into theaters once again, Peter Parker comes back in the sequel of Spider-Man Far from home. No way home, the third is the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man trilogy, which has raked in over $1.37 billion, and is ranked 12th place in highest grossing films globally. Now, what exactly makes this movie succeed where others have tried and failed? 

Going into as much detail as we can spoiler free, the movie starts off exactly where the last one left off, with spider-man’s identity being revealed to the world. He then flees the area with his girlfriend, MJ. After his private life is brutally invaded by the press, Parker goes to Doctor Strange, a sorcerer, for help. Wishing for his life to go back to the way it was, Strange casts a spell, but it goes wrong, and villains from other universes start to show up. Classic villains like Green Goblin and Doc Ock make an appearance, filling some older enjoyers of Spiderman with nostalgia.  

Senior Alex Justman is only one of many CMR students who has seen and enjoyed the film, stating that he thinks the film is a 10/10. “[The end] was so sad,” Justman said. Later going on to say he would watch the sequel if one were to be released.

“It was a very good movie. It was entertaining to say the least,” Justman said.
