Movie Review - Spider-Man: Homecoming

Don't stare at the dwindling crypto market cap. Go see a movie instead! The new Spiderman is a great choice! Non stop thrills!

I recently saw Spiderman: Homecoming and was charmed by the movie. I went alone. My girlfriend was notified about the much needed nerdy alone time. She didn’t argue. Get yourself such a girlfriend.

This adaptation really took me back to the carefree days of primary school that I spent reading the comics all day long. Not a worry on my mind. Long story short, our hero wins and the bad guy ends up getting himself into a world of trouble that he never expected.

Technicalities of the movie aside. I like to focus on the characters.

Peter Parker

Weird fuzzy feeling when I hear that name. Spidey was always my favorite comic. Probably because the guy is a 15 year old kid. Much more relatable to teens than a 60+ year old gramps such as Captain America. Peter is a working family kid with good upbringing. He just wants to do good but is unsure how to do it. He has a great taste when it comes to love interests but is too shy to do anything. Confusion. One word that describes him best. And you can feel it and empathize. Great!

The alter ego! Quite silly in this adaptation. Just as it should be! It is a 15 year old hero after all. If the actor doesn’t look 15 at least it is easier to imagine him that way when he dons his costume. Goofy one liners and stunts make him memorable in this iteration.

It speaks! Sounds like a pretty girl too! A pretty girl who whispers into your ear as you fly around the city. How inappropriate! Many gadgets that Peter can’t handle yet, I’m excited about the potential in the next movie.

I liked him the most actually. Does he want to conquer the world and spawn an army of devouring aliens? No. He wants to live slightly above the means of an average American family so his loved ones can have a carefree life. Is that bad? Not at all, who wouldn’t want that? Very 3 dimensional character this time around. Cool costume, but not too cool. Just nailed it. I was sad to see him fall actually. I hoped for some kind of resolution :/

Aunt May

A cougar? Really? I know the movie lacks a supermodel since all the other girls are teens but we are used to 65+ year old aunt. This kind of gave an odd vibe. But I learned to accept it quickly. She is charming in a way. I wonder what the authors have in store for her in the sequel!

Annoying nerd basically. I hope she’ll be 18 in the sequel. Fully blossomed and everything. I see potential there.

Iron Man

There simply to steal Spidey’s fame. Not cool! Easy guy to loathe in my opinion. He doesn’t deserve Gwyneth Paltrow.

Soundtrack is awesome! Ramones rock the place! Video at the end! Over and out! Image credits
