Spider-Man: Homecoming

Look, let’s be clear. This isn’t the greatest Spider-Man film ever. It’s also not the greatest MCU film ever either. But while it’s not a Spider-Man 2 or a Winter Soldier, it’s still a pretty damn fun movie to watch.



Spider-Man: Homecoming – Trailer

I adored Tom Holland’s version of the teenage Spider-Man in Civil War, and it looks like much of the same here. It cuts a different tone to the other MCU films, and I look forward to what it has in store. I mean, this trailer is nowhere near as entertaining as the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, but this feels like it’s going to be a meaningful addition to the Marvel franchise unlike Thor.

Also, please don’t show us Uncle Ben dying. I figured it’s probably not going to happen given that they didn’t make Peter quote that overused line verbatim. But I still have to say it. Spider-Man is into its 3rd franchise now. It’s the most popular Marvel character if I’m not mistaken. EVERYONE knows his origin story. Let’s not repeat it again, yea?

Everything Wrong With Spider-Man 3

I love CinemaSins. Not just because it’s funny for them to point out all the continuity/scientific fallacies they commit, but also all the clich├ęs and tropes used so often by Hollywood. That kind of helps me with my writing, as I scrutinise my story and plot to make sure everything actually makes sense. Hurray for realistic stories in unrealistic, fantasy worlds!

Oh, and I just wish Sony could let Spider-Man return to Marvel so we can have him actually join the Avengers. And be part of the Civil War storyline that I hope is in Marvel’s plans. *sigh*
