Big Summer Movies Part 5. (Part 4)

*Orchestral 60's animated Spidey theme*

Spider-Man Homecoming (2017)

Previously on MCU phase 3....
And previously on Spider-Man...

Prelude to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

And now the rundown.
  • Best Spider-Man ever.
  • Best Peter Parker ever.
  • Best Spider-Man movie ever. Yes, even better than Raimi-Spidey 2. Its been dethroned.
  • Among the best of the MCU movies.
  • I'd put it...between 5 and 6 on my all-time MCU list.
  • Between 8 and 9 on my all time superheroes list.
  • Vulture is a better MCU villain than we're used to getting. I dunno if he's up there with Loki, but he's both pretty menacing, and grounded as a realistic human.
  • Michael Keaton's portrayal of Vulture is top notch.
  • All the side characters are great. Happy Hogan, Peter's friend, Vulture's tech guy, etc.
  • In fact, Vulture's tech guy is a scene stealer!
  • Okay, Zendayah's character was wavey-hand.
  • Two post credits scenes, wait for them both. The second one...the second one lives in the same food-group as Shwarma, and Deadpool's Ferris Bueller parody. 
  • I had assigned seats for the first time. Don't know if I'm gonna like that. Gotta remember where the back rows are oriented on the little computer map, I fucked up, and put myself close to the front. Did not like that. Didn't spoil the flick, but echhh, being around people, ecchh.
  • Lots of continuity porn for Avengers 1, Civil War, and Iron Man 1.
  • I'm jazzed as Hell to see Spidey in "Infinity War", now!!
  • Only trailer was "Black Panther". Jazzed for that one too.

So, yep, worth seeing.

Aaaand, that's it.
Everyone's raving about "Baby Driver", but...I dunno.
Nah, I'm done.
That's summer movies for this year.

Next up, summer movie recap.
I know, that was quick.
*Shrug* the summer season blew goats for comedies this year.
And "The Mummy", apparently ate ass.
And I regret even seeing "Alien: Covenant".
Plus, Marvel and DC have their other stuff in fucking winter, so whaddya gonna do?
So, yeah, recap next.

Ah, shit...okay, I'll add Baby Driver and Dark Tower to the list...
