Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019, dir. Jon Watts)

Peter Parker, on a European school trip with his classmates, comes into contact with both elemental monsters and a new superhero, Mysterio. Upbeat if overlong blend of teen road trip comedy and standard heroic action thrills, acting as a coda to Avengers: Endgame. Well-played and likeable, if episodic on several levels.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016, dir. Edward Zwick)

Reacher uncovers a military conspiracy. Second of the toned-down Lee Child adaptations, this again isn’t the character of the novels, but is nevertheless a largely-effective┬áif somewhat low-key star vehicle.
