Spider-Man: Homecoming
« on: June 26, 2017, 04:58:02 pm »
Directed by Jon Watts from a screenplay co-written with Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Christopher D. Ford, Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, the sixteenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Zendaya Coleman, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Bokeem Woodbine, Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., J.J. Totah, Abraham Attah, Tiffany Espensen, Angourie Rice, Michael Barbieri, Ethan Dizon, Martha Kelly, Michael Mando, Garcelle Beauvais, Stan Lee, Chris Evans, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Connelly, and Kerry Condon.

The second reboot of the Spider-Man film series is set several months after the events of 2016's Captain America: Civil War. Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark/Iron Man, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man as a new threat, Adrian Toomes/The Vulture, emerges.

I'm having immense trouble getting excited for this but knowing my friends there's a pretty big chance I'll end up seeing it. It'll probably be competent at the least though.

So anything other than 45% wins for me?  I like my odds.  Deal.

Early reactions from verified critics (not fans like the early BvS reactions) were pretty solid.  I'd say something like a 75% would be more likely.

Whatever. I just hope this fails. I'm really sick of hearing John talk about how Tom Hollard is "the best movie Spider-Man ever" when he was only in one movie for about ten minutes (and was consistently fucking terrible).

John creams his pants for every Marvel film... is what I would say if John could cream his pants.

Tom Holland isn't terrible, but it's a far cry from Maguire's performance as Spider-Man.  Maybe this movie will help convince me otherwise, but I highly doubt it.

Alas, this'll probably be the one film that keeps Sony afloat this year. I anticipate that oversaturation of Spider-Man will cut this film's revenue to a modest degree.

All the praise I've heard for him has been either "He's the right age and he looks the part" or "He tells jokes, just like Spider-Man should!" I doubt that a feature film will improve my impression of him.

Still think this looks generic as hell, but I'm sure it'll get solid reviews.

First trailer didn't do much for me, and I'm honestly annoyed that Marvel got their hands on Spider-Man, but I'm looking forward to this because I love the character so much.

Yeah, but here's the thing, I said on the perfect casting thread that I was biased since I've been waiting so long to see a Spider-Man on film exactly like the one I knew and loved from the comics, which Maguire's portrayal (and to a lesser extent, Garfield's) didn't really nail in my opinion (I'm not at all saying they were bad, they were both good). What I got from Holland's take, even if it was 10 minutes, was the Spider-Man on film that I wanted to see in the first place and exactly got: a version that's awkward and naive (like he should be) yet at the same time a wise-cracker (like he also should be), using jokes to calm himself down during dangerous, crazy situations. I simply felt Holland fit the Spider-Man persona better.

And if we're talking outside the MCU, I didn't like the following:

- X-Men: The Last Stand
- X-Men Origins: Wolverine
- The Fantastic Four (1994)
- Fantastic Four (2005)
- Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
- Fant4stic
- Elektra
- Ghost Rider
- Punisher: War Zone
- Captain America (1990)
- Spider-Man 3
- Blade: Trinity
- Men in Black II*

*The company that published the original Men in Black comics, Malibu, is one of the Marvel imprints, the other one being Icon, the company behind the Kick-Ass comics.

I don't even hate Holland's performance.

What I have a problem with is that they reduced the character's rather pure do-right-'cuz-it's-right motivation from the Raimi films to I-wanna-be-an-Avenger-and-impress-Daddy-Stark.

That feels a lot more damning then the overabundance of quips and bathos.
