    Spider-Man: Homecoming (film)

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Birdman's the bad guy?

    At first I was sceptical. I didn't like the new spidey in the latest Cap film. I thought the casting was off. I didn't like that they were remaking Spiderman... AGAIN. It just feels like Sam Raimi caught lightning in a bottle the first time around and then the new films with Andrew Garfield were thoroughly meh where Raimi's films had been great.

    But seeing this... I like the High school angle. The kid seems OK now. Michael Keaton as the bad guy? Performance anxiety toward the Avengers? I like it.

    That being said, the villain's schtick looks a bit dumb.

They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    life-long spidey fan here, and i couldn't really give any less of a shit about this one. not a fan of the MCU and the disney milk-machine that will likely also burn me out on star wars.

    This looks like a good bit of fun, and nice to have it within the MCU fold.

    The two "Amazing" films were okay, but that version of Peter Parker felt way too cool and confident in his day-to-day life, and the villains never really worked particularly well. They were kinda forgettable, to be brutally honest. I won't be re-watching them, but I'll be rewatching the Raimi flicks (again, too, having seen those three that Raimi did 2, 3, or 4 times each).

    So yeah, this "Homecoming" one does look like fun. I quite enjoyed his introduction in the new Captain America film - him and Ant-Man were my favourites in that movie.

    Well I enjoyed it... But I have to say I think the Sam Raimi effort was far more solid!
