Far From Home is better than Homecoming due to that action sequences

Our hero, Peter Parker, finds himself back in a similar predicament as the first film. He’s a child playing hero while learning to be an actual hero. He wishes to be a normal boy on vacation but cannot escape the responsibilities of being an Avenger. Peter’s entire character arc is pretty much a drawn-out “With great power comes great responsibility” moment. I felt a bit of superhero fatigue as typical superhero tropes unfolded. That is, until the first big battle with Mysterio. The use of CGI to create a mind-warping illusion in the first battle was magnificent. Peter is tossed around in a false world of nightmares and horrors, which even features an Iron Man zombie and an iconic shot of Spider-Man trapped inside Mysterio’s helmet. Overall, Gyllenhaal was not impressive until the real villain comes out. When he ditches the fake hero act and dives into his bad guy vibes, the movies gets much better.
Nick Fury and Maria Hill don’t have much to do here besides boss Peter around. They seem clueless and useless for most of the film, but it is revealed during the after credit scene why this is (which I will get into later). Other supporting characters such as MJ, Ned, Aunt May, Happy Hogan, and Flash Thompson serve strict comedic relief roles. There is little depth to any character besides Peter and Mysterio, which makes it hard to really care about anyone. When Ned’s life is in danger I barely care. In fact, I almost wanted Mysterio to kill a supporting character, so that I could feel something for the diverse cast.

While Far From Home is better than Homecoming, it’s mainly due to that action sequences and the initial jerk of the plot twist. This is by no means a bad movie, but it isn’t magnificent either. Tom Holland is still a perfect Spider-Man, which is the franchise’s strongest point by far. He’s lovable, dorky, immature, and flawed. Strong performances from him and Jake Gyllenhaal help keep this movie from being mediocre.
There are two scenes after the film ends, a post-credit scene and a mid-credit scene. The mid-credit scene is a great nod to Mysterio’s appearance in the comics. In the source material, the clever villain frames Spider-Man for horrific crimes, and he does the same in Far From Home. Spider-Man is blamed for the Elemental attacks, with Mysterio declaring that Spidey created the entire event with drones to solidify himself as the best hero. He then drops a bombshell and reveals the true identity of Spider-Man. Peter was the only hero in the MCU with a secret identity anyway, so its good they finally tore that band-aid off. I’m also sure that Nicky Fury, Happy Hogan, Maria Hill, MJ, Ned, and the Avengers will be able to clear Peter’s name of all wrongdoing in time. But it will be interesting how they maneuver into Phase 4 with Peter being viewed as a public enemy and his identity being revealed.

Finally, during the post-credit scene, it is revealed that the Nicky Fury and Maria Hill on Earth are Skrulls in disguise. We see that the real Fury is actually in space on a station being run by the Skrulls. This is a big nod in two directions. First, it shows that Marvel is looking to move their universe to the stars, with Fury set to keep an eye on the galaxy instead of just the Earth now. Second, it sets up a potential Secret Invasion storyline. A one-liner from Fury/Skrull during the film also suggests that the Kree and Skrull war is far from over. This means we should expect Captain Marvel, The Eternals, and The Guardians of the Galaxy to steer the overall plot into the next chapter. Cheers, to phase 4!

John DeLorean’s Widow Loses Fight for ‘Back to the Future’ Royalties

If John DeLorean’s wife could take one of his cars back in time, she’d likely change the terms of a settlement with DeLorean Motor Company. As it stands, that deal is preventing the carmaker’s estate from cashing in on Back to the Future-related royalties.

DeLorean founded the original DeLorean Motor Company in the 1970s, through which he designed, manufactured and sold the iconic DMC 12. The company shuttered in 1979 and subsequently declared bankruptcy. A decade later, DeLorean struck a deal with Universal for the studio to use the name and appearance of the vehicle in connection with the Back to the Future franchise in exchange for 5 percent of the net receipts from «merchandising and commercial tie-ups.»

In 1997, a company called DMC Texas purchased assets from the bankruptcy, including inventory and trade names and registered trademarks for the logos on the rear bumper and grill. DeLorean died in 2005.

Sally DeLorean, on behalf of her late husband’s estate, in 2014 sued DMC Texas alleging it “improperly and illegally appropriated for its own use Mr. DeLorean’s legacy» by, among other things, producing replica DMC 12s. thehollywoodunlocked.com/putlockers-hd-ii-watch-frozen-2-2019-online-full-for-free

In 2015, they reached a settlement that included a release of all claims. During that dispute, the estate became aware of the Universal deal and later reached out to find out how much it was owed in royalties — only to discover the studio had paid them to DMC Texas.

DeLorean’s widow in April 2018 again sued DMC Texas, alleging that the settlement didn’t grant the company any rights under the Universal deal.

Chief District Judge Jose L. Linares in October 2018 dismissed the complaint, finding that the settlement agreement barred the claims. The estate appealed.

On Thursday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit ruled against the widow, affirming Linares’ ruling. It agreed that the subject matter of the Universal Agreement fell within that of the settlement and that DMC Texas’ business with Universal is within its rights to use, register and enforce the trademarks.

«In addition to selling automobiles and other products, DMC Texas’s business involves licensing its trademarks and rights to the DeLorean automobile brand to other companies, such as Mattel, Inc., Target, and Microsoft,» writes Circuit Judge Joseph A. Greenaway Jr. «Here, the demand that Universal pay DMC Texas for the use of marks for which it has ‘worldwide rights’ falls within its business of licensing and enforcing the licenses to its marks and other intellectual property.»

Greenaway also notes the settlement includes specific circumstances under which the estate can sue DMC Texas, like for an unauthorized depiction of John DeLorean’s likeness, but there’s no mention of the ability to sue for enforcing its rights to the trademarks.

Because the 3rd Circuit found the settlement bars the litigation, it did not reach the issue of whether the estate assigned its rights under the Universal deal to DMC Texas.

50 Years Later, Dick Van Dyke cannot Forget His «Bad Guy» Silent-M Clown Role

A half-century after the actor and director Carl Reiner tried depicting the life of churlish star in ‘The Comic,’ both Hollywood icons reflect on the career footnote: «What we were going for, really, was authenticity.»

Both Carl Reiner and Dick Van Dyke have always loved silent-movie clowns. At one point, they even teamed up to tell the story of one — a fictional composite of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and other superstars who was portrayed as a lying, cheating, egotistical jerk.

The movie — which opens on the protagonist’s funeral, then jumps back through time — was called The Comic, and, shortly after it hit theaters in New York exactly 50 years ago on Nov. 19, it disappeared. But Van Dyke and Reiner can’t quite forget the film, which has become an odd footnote in their legendary careers.

By way of backstory, Van Dyke, now 93, recalls to The Hollywood Reporter how he became friends with his silent-era idols Stan Laurel, who died in 1965, and Keaton, who passed away the following year. «I was looking through the phone book one day and there was his name,» recalls Van Dyke. «I thought, ‘It can’t be!’ [But] I called and it was Stan Laurel! He had seen our show and knew who I was» —  in fact, Van Dyke and Henry Calvin had re-created a Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy sketch in a 1963 episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show called «The Sam Pomerantz Scandals» — «so I went and visited him on several occasions. I have some wonderful pictures of the two of us up in his apartment.» Van Dyke also discovered Keaton in the phone book and visited him at his house in the San Fernando Valley.

Even before the Van Dyke Show ended in 1966, creator-producer-writer Reiner, now 97, and Van Dyke often talked about paying homage to these silent clowns. But both were busy with other projects almost immediately. Van Dyke was in demand for films — starring in such hits as 1967’s Divorce American Style and Fitzwilly — while Reiner directed his first feature, the well-received Enter Laughing, based on his semi-autobiographical novel. He also wrote and starred in the Emmy-winning The Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca, Carl Reiner, Howard Morris Special, which reunited the cast of Your Show of Shows.

But in 1968, the duo set to work rewriting an old script at Columbia with Aaron Reuben. “What we were going for really was authenticity. We wanted to make it look like the era [as best] we could,” says Van Dyke, who even visited a couple of silent-film actors at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital «just to talk and see what life was like.»
