Yes, that was a dunkey reference. First Impressions This is the best Holland Spider-Man movie by a LONG shot, it’s not even close if I am being totally honest. The brilliance of making us think that this Peter didn’t need an origin story then pulling the rug out from under us by revealing the entire trilogy was the origin story? Spectacular.Let’s get it out of … Continue reading [Spoiler Review] Finally, Spider-Man: No Way Home Really Makes You FEEL Like Spider-Man

I’m a fan of the Betty more than I am of the Veronica in most love triangles, though not necessarily because I think they should end up with the main character by the end.
