I dislike Spider-Man Far From Home but I have to choose top 3 my favorite Spider-Man scenes.
1). Mysterio creates illusion.
2). Please drop “Peter Tingle” because it’s sucks.
3). Only J.K. Simmons back reprising his role as J. Jonah Jameson.

⭐️ Whiplash (2014) by Damien Chazelle. Can you name a few films where ambition is a main theme? (such as Black Swan)
🎥 In this scene, Miles Teller’s character (Andrew Neiman) meets up with J.K Simmon’s character (Fletcher). Fletcher is now performing at jazz clubs playing the piano where Andrew is in the audience. Andrew was the one who got Fletcher fired, or at least forced to by a therapist and his father. So there is underlying tension in this scene and a bit of dramatic irony. But later in this act, Fletcher says he knew it was Andrew who got him fired. A perfect finale battle! -
🎬Like many filmmakers, they can’t get funding for their films. Which is why Chazelle made Whiplash into a short film originally, still casting J.K Simmons as the brutal instructor. The short film won the Short Film Jury Award, where he was able to get funding as a result! Its budget was about ~ $4 million . I’ve always wondered why Whiplash was called what it is... Chazelle made this an entertaining movie as well as extremely thought provoking. I just wish more filmmakers had the funding, with inspiration like Chazelle. -
💭 “There are no two words in the English language more harmful than “good job’.” Fletcher is hinting that sometimes in order to maximise your potential, you need someone to push you. Which is his justification for pushing Andrew and he’s not sorry about it! -
🍿 Trivia: For the slapping scene, J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller filmed several takes with Simmons only miming the slap. For the final take, Simmons and Teller decided to film the scene with a real, genuine slap. This is the take that is in the film. (source: IMBD)
La La Land (2016) - “All we’re looking for is love from someone else.”
La La Land is a beautiful romantic musical. I think I love everything about it. The acting, the cinematography, the amazing direction by Damien Chazelle, the honest depiction of a love story, the songs, oh the songs, I really love the songs.
I think the best character moments of #SpidermanHomecoming were better than the best moments in #FarFromHome (like the Vulture car scene for example)... but overall I think Far From Home is arguably one of the best live-action #Spiderman movies of all time. It has literally the most mind-blowing action sequence yet. It has genuinely surprising twists ON TOP OF the main twist you might see coming as a comic fan. And as an epilogue to #AvengersEndgame it truly cements this version of #PeterParker as the next #TonyStark of the #MCU while answering a bunch of the logistical questions fans had about the reversal of the snap in a HILARIOUS and realistic way. This movie is a must-see for superhero fans: 4.5/5. What’d you guys think? Best live-action Spider-Man movie or nah?? I *loved* Spider-man 2 back in the day but I think this is arguably close. 🤔

Let Me Know What You Think of This Fancast:
I give this movie a 9/10
The Accountant is a good movie with a great premise. Wolff as a high functioning autistic man turned assassin and forensic accountant is very interesting. All these characteristics interact and relate in ways in a manner people may have not thought of. All of them present high attention to detail dedication and certain levels of jadedness. The duality of the sometimes mundane life of an accountant then the craziness of being an assassin let's Wolff stay unsuspected for such a long time. I cannot speak on Ben Affleck's performance as an autistic man because I don't have much experience with autistic people. The action of this movie was well balanced with investigation which made for an entertaining film with lots of mystery. I will also say the accounting jargon used is rather accurate. .

'Whiplash' (2014) Review:
Who would've guessed a movie about a drummer trying to breakthrough and rise as a musician (under the toughest instructor in man's history) would keep me on the edge of my seat for the ENTIRE RUNTIME?
There is not a single shot in #whiplash where I wasn't fully locked in because of how well executed everything is. Every scene is directed to perfection. A big part of that is of course thanks to the performances, particularly JK Simmons, who genuinely gives one of the best performances I have ever seen. Simmons is just so electric, intimidating, and damn thrilling as Fletcher; he rules the stage whenever he comes on screen. Not to undermine Miles Teller's fantastic acting, as well; he delivers a very solid job and his chemistry with JK drives the film. In fact, the relationship between Fletcher and Andrew is one of the best on-screen dynamics I've ever seen.
The rousing scenes between these two are the best part of the movie. Andrew (Teller) would be sweating his ass off and a pinch away from collapsing while performing, and you'd have Fletcher screaming his lungs out about how his student is just not up to it. This makes every scene of the film feel personal, and therefore impactful. Even the way the drumming scenes are shot make you feel like the struggle is palpable. You can tell not only are the characters passionate about what they do, but so is everyone working on this movie.
The ending of 'Whiplash' is also one of the best endings in movie history. It just feels earned and deserved, and will definitely get you jumping off your seat with excitement and craze. Again, all because of drums. I could swear that the final scene of the film is one of the best scenes ever made.
I'm at loss for more to say. Seriously, 'Whiplash' is so simple yet... so perfect. The film so masterfully crafted it's almost indescribable, so I'll finish off simply by saying that 'Whiplash' is a masterpiece; legendary performances, iconic characters, acoustically and visually pleasing scenes, and an electrifying screenplay all make this movie one of the best, and certainly most vigorous, in film history.
17.09.2019 Oviedo, España. Me encuentro en mi sillón pensando en una controversial y super interesante película “Whiplash” (2014). Genios o algo mas?! Gran interrogante con la que te deja esta gran película. Por un lado te muestran un profesor, quien interpreta J.K. Simmons con métodos pocos ortodoxos y a su vez en contraposición un alumno obsesionado con ser el mejor en su campo, de la mano de Miles Teller… linda dupla.
Durante la película veremos la turbia relación que se crea entre ellos, que por momentos deja ver la magnitud de la ambición que poseen ambos por ser los mejores…
