Spider-Man: Homecoming, 2017
Signed up the 30/03/2017
Let me start off by saying I'm glad this movie doesn't mention Uncle Ben at all. I'm tired of seeing dude getting shot and Peter Parker crying in regret over his dead body. The approach to this film was very light and creative. Throwing in Tony Stark into the mix was also a great marketing strategy. This movie was clearly an intro to the upcoming sequels. I don't like it when blockbuster movies do this but I would be lying if I said I wasn't satisfied.
It's pretty clear that most of the characters will be in the next one. I enjoyed Peter Parkers sloppiness and lack of experience in being a super hero. He spends most of the film preoccupied with trying to impress Tony Stark which causes his school and social life to take a dip. The contrast between his normal life as an academic loser and being the 'spiderman' gets interesting when the two identities are forced to intertwine because of his best friend played by Jacob Batalon. He finds out that Peter is Spiderman and attempts to force him to use that to his advantage to impress Peters crush Liz Allan played by Laura Harrier.
The supporting cast of this movie is really fresh, from Michael Keaton playing Vulture to Happy played by Jon Favreau who's my favourite character in the movie. The Vultures introduction was dope. His reasoning and motives made a lot of sense to me and tied in very well to Peter Parkers difficult journey into becoming a great super hero when they finally clash. We also see a very brief introduction to 'Shocker' played by Bokeem Woodbine who I predict will be the main villain of the next Spider Man film. Remember this review when it comes out.
Zendaya who plays Michelle, and Tony Revolori who plays Flash Thompson are really great castings although I thought Flash would be a little more aggressive as Peters bully. Spiderman Homecoming is a good movie, that's how I'd describe it: "yeah it's a good movie I'll take it". I think they were saving all the cool stuff for the sequel which is the only thing I didn't like about it, but yeah it's fresh I'd encourage people to check it out.
