Default Spider-man Homecoming

Definitely not for hardcore spidey fans. It wasn't perfect, but very entertaining. The cast was weird to me. Watch out for easter eggs, I bet there are more than what I can discover.

That sounds like what I was expecting. Putting him back as a teenager didn't sit well with me although I'm happy they aren't doing another origin film. Based on the trailers I agree the cast seems strange. Probably be a couple weeks before I get to see it.

I'm a little surprised at some of the glowing reviews, given that I thought the trailers were sort of "meh".
I'm also hearing it described as "he perfect coming-of-age movie."
I have to admit it all has me a bit concerned that Hollywood and the critics have finally found a way to co-opt the superhero movie and are attempting to make things all about relevance instead of the characters as they were created and we've always known them.
Given that superhero movies have become the biggest thing financially and culturally in entertainment, I'm a little worried that between the fervor for diversity and relevance these iconic characters will start going in directions dictated too much by modern sentiments and will start losing the essential qualities that made them great to past generations in the first place.

I share the same concerns as TrueFaith, and have the same opinion about the movie as a whole as Leadin2. Michael Keaton (as always) was fantastic, I think he is my second favorite MCU villain now. If they didn't waste him on the Vulture, he could be my favorite.

I liked the film (and the cast, especially Michael Keaton) but it definitely wasn't perfect. Flash Thompson for example, wasn't how I'd have liked. The actor was great at the role, the writing just wasn't Flash to me. Nothing majorly wrong, just little things like that. Still a very entertaining film!

Haven't seen it yet, and I have reasonable hopes for it, but I must repeat: I should not want to have carnal relations with Aunt May. That is just wrong.

I wanted to walk out. Why?

- The social justice warrior cast: Almost every supporting character's race was swapped out.
- Ageism: "May" (No "aunt" these days, apparently) is way too young, as is Betty Brant (at least she's still allowed to be white (Haha)). Oh, and Ned Leeds is a teenager, Peter Parker's best friend and he's Hawaiian?!?!?
- I felt like I was watching a big budget Nickelodean sitcom.
- Stop with the little kid Spider-Man already! He has been a man my entire life & I'm 49!
- Tony Stark & Iron Man! STOP!!!! This is starting to get like Wolverine guest appearances in the comics back in the day.
- The Roger Moore/Inspector Gadget suit.
- The not a single mention of Uncle Ben or why Peter does this.

AWFUL GARBAGE!

Go see War for the Planet of the Apes!

ha...well said.

I like it, though...wasn't perfect...had its moments. Good introduction to the new Spider-Man. That said, it was a bit hollow in motive. Keaton was great...I like Holland...don't like him being so young, though. There was some questionable CGI at moments like Gman pointed out. Good flick overall...
