Spiderman: Homecoming

Saw this today. Overall I felt it was a very solid Marvel movie. Nothing really surprising. At least not till the second after credits scene. That one had the whole theater laughing for better or worse.

What are your thoughts?

We enjoyed it. They have an age-appropriate Peter Parker and they toned down the emo-ness of his origin story and his character portrayal. Overall, I'd give it 4 out of 5.

Trying to avoid spoilers...

Meeting Liz's parents was.... interesting. As was Aunt May in her last scene before the end credits. And I liked the portrayal of Tony Stark's handling of the situation.

Highly recommended.

Just finished seeing it.

Just finished seeing it. Recommend everyone else go see it too, because it's a great film.

This year we got TWO incredible superhero stories ... Wonder Woman and Spiderman ... and they're very very different stories, each with their own strengths to recommend them for.

The previews definitely didn't do justice to the movie.

I didn't stick around to see the second credits scene. I suppose I'll have to look it up online at some point.

I think it was an excellent spider-man movie! I think it shows how to do a good coming of age superhero story without needing to be an origin story. Also, without mentioning spoilers, I'm pleasantly surprised they avoided mentioning certain web-slinging cliches through out the entire movie.

In terms of world-building I also like how it tied in with the aftermath of the first Avengers movies.

I liked the scene where he tries to use his web shooters to swing-travel on a golf course and it doesn't work because there's nothing to attach a web onto on a golf course.

Enjoyed the movie. Did not care for this Flash. Sorry, can't imagine him becoming a war vet or Agent Venom. So, he sucks. Sendaya was fine until the end, then she sucked.

Other than those two things however, no other complaints I could really think of, just their sucky Flash and sucky Sendaya.

Worse: it was a driving range, which is why all those golf balls were left out there. I was surprised they didn't have him lose his balance by stepping on one.

Has anyone seen my mind? It was right here...

I thought it was outstanding. The first Spider-Man film where I thought they got the character right, and a nice tangential addition to the MCU with solid ties to it.

I really didn't feel they got Spider-Man wrong with Andrew. Rather, we just got an older version of Peter, rather than the 15 year old. It's not like older Peter is total geek anymore :p Hasn't been for awhile.

Now only if we could get an accurate MJ and Flash.

For me, the important thing was picking through the credits and identifying the people that I actually had classes with less than a decade ago.

It is only when we stand up, with all our failings and sufferings, and try to support others rather than withdraw into ourselves, that we can fully live the life of community.

More the production staff - I went to one of the top Animation schools in the world, so even if I wasn't in the animation program, I had enough electives that there are a good dozen names that I keep an eye out for.

Movie was great. I really wasn't going to watch it because the only heroes that interest me are the X-Men, but I heard the movies did really well and got good reviews so I decided to check it out and I don't regret it at all. I would even go see it again. They did an amazing job with his story, it wasn't too flashy, and the inclusion into the MCU was an awesome treat. I couldn't stay for the after-credits scenes because I had to get to work but I will be looking for those online soon.

My daughter gives it the best review. She's not one to see movies multiple times. She wants to see Spider-Man again. Wonder Woman she was "It's...okay." Spider-Man left her with a big smile and a desire to see it again!

What more can be said? See it! :p

Interesting. What caused you to end up as Marketing Manager here instead of one of the animators? Or are you doing that work also?

Saw it again tonight, and I agree: the way they connected it to the MCU was well done.

Also really enjoyed the Vulture's backstory and motivation, as well as the way they were able to include elements of his classic costume in a way that made sense.

Here's hoping that Vaas from Far Cry 3 / Nacho from 'Better Call Saul' will be the villain in the next one, as the groundwork they laid kinda implies.

Just one silly question:

Just one silly question: Spiderman (or rather, his best friend) destroys the Death Star?

As a Lego collector and builder, that was a difficult scene to watch. I cringed as I had a flashback to the hours spent building that monstrosity.

"Destroys" implies intent. More like he (unwittingly) dropped it.

The worst part is, they had to do that scene 33 times! O.O

People on set kept gasping when he dropped it. They just could not help themselves to see such a Lego catastrophe.
