Ranch reviews – Some cinematic treats (and some coal) for the holidays

“Spiderman – Far From Home” a holiday treat

Presley Long – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The moment so many of us have been waiting for is here, and I have never been so excited for a movie in my life.

“Spiderman: No Way Home” has finally been released and I can officially say this is the best Spiderman movie ever made and it is in my top 5 all-time favorite Marvel films.

It was hilarious, full of raw emotion, and completely exceeded my expectations.

Every line of comedy had me laughing and the action and storyline left me speechless.

Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spiderman) did an excellent job at portraying this character, and you can see how far he has come since first portraying Spiderman in “Captain America: Civil War.”

This goes for all the characters and actors in the film as well, such as Mary Jane Parker (Zendaya), Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon), and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). Everyone who acted and worked on this film put their hearts into it, and created the biggest movie of the year.

The film follows Parker and his friends as their European vacation is ruined when so-called “Elemental Creatures” (water, fire, etc.) attack the continent.

I wish I could go back and experience watching this in the theater for the first time, as I was filled with such intense happiness and nostalgia.

Every second of this film made me genuinely happy and put a smile on my face, and I cannot wait to see the future of Spiderman and Marvel in general.

Netflix serves up Scrooge-worthy junk

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – It is official, Netflix is running out of ideas. If you thought the holidays were going to be the perfect time to catch up on the app’s newest releases, you are in for a major letdown, because Netflix has been slacking.

I give you what NOT to watch on Netflix this holiday season.

The Unforgivable”

Sandra Bullock stars in Netflix’s newest drama thriller, and her performance is the only good thing about it. “The Unforgivable” was a drawn-out, dull film, that had me falling asleep from the moment it started.

Nothing about this movie drew me in and nothing made me want to stay, which is a signal for Netflix to stop throwing out random movies and really sit down and think about what to release.

They really threw in incredible actors, Bullock and Viola Davis, and still could not form a good storyline for them to act in.

The movie is about a woman who is released from prison, only to find that society will not forgive her violent past. 

The editing for this film was all over the place, there was no emotion, and it was overall a waste of 2 hours.

I will never ‘forgive’ Netflix for this.

Anonymously Yours”

If you thought it could not get any worse, you are in for a treat. “Anonymously yours” takes the cake for being the worst movie Netflix has ever released.

I am going to be honest with you, I did not even finish it.

This film was way too fast paced, and the dialogue did not flow at all.

I am not going to sugar coat it; the acting was terrible. You could tell none of these actors had been in anything prior to this.

“Anonymously Yours” stars Annie Cabello and Harold Azuara as two digital friends whose relationship turns into a romance.

This was not one of those movies where it is good because of how bad it was, this is one of those movies that was flat-out terrible and should never have been released in the first place.

Two

I would like to erase this movie from my mind please.

This film was a nightmare that made me squeamish and uncomfortable. The producers could have fit the storyline of this movie into a 20-minute short film but decided to stretch it over an hour.

It made the movie boring and had me wishing the whole time that it would just end.

The plot is about two people, played by Marina Gatell and Pablo Derqui, who wake up naked with their abdomens sewn together.

I will say that the acting was good in this film, but the storyline made me nauseous and uneasy.

I do not recommend watching this if you have a weak stomach.

Actually, I don’t recommend watching this at all.
