Spike Lee makes a great film, then he takes a dump in the credits with easily refuted claims through selected editing. Why?
Like the best art, we learn something about humanity and the will to persevere.
This is the perfect film for Criterion treatment.
Chaplin is definitely going to be on my list for future watches. I had avoided him to now because through local television, I grew up on Harold Lloyd. I figured if you’ve seen one, you’d seen them all. I really do need to see them all.
Two basketball movies that seem similar, but couldn’t be farther apart.

One thing that should not be disputed by now is that Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man, and it’s not even close.
“The concept of the film is relatively simple, Big with super powers. If we limit our expectations to this idea, we’re in for a decent surprise.
