Review – Spider-Man: Homecoming

Review – Spider-Man: Homecoming

I have seen just about every Spidey movie produced and have experienced varying degrees of satisfaction and frustration. When I heard about the Sony/Marvel collaboration for this film, I felt a bit of relief, but was still unsure about the project, as a whole. But, I was willing to keep an open mind, because Marvel Cinematic was behind it. Let just say that this movie was everything that I hoped that it could be, and then some! From the casting to the costumes, I was not disappointed one bit.

The movie interjected the right amount and kind of humor for a Spider-Man movie with no detriment to the seriousness of the story as a whole. Plus, I feel like that this is the first time that we actually get a realistic depiction of what a learning curve Peter is experiencing as a new superhero. From being in the suburbs and not having something attach a web to, to miscalculating how much, or how little, he needs to swing from point A to point B, we see it all. Plus, the difficulties that go with having a secret identity! Speaking of, it was so good to have an intelligent villain. It didn’t take half the movie for Vulture to figure out who Spider-Man was, and he wasted no time in making it known, either. I liked that a lot!

The movie is filled with easter eggs that go all the way back to Captain America: The First Avenger and up to Captain America: Civil War and it does that extra bit to tie it all together. Plus, to finally see Damage Control was a nice touch, too!! This movie clocks in wll over two hours, but you will not feel it and please stick around for the end credit scenes…they was well worth it! So, I do highly recommend Spider-Man: Homecoming. It is ideal for the younger ones, too, if you’re thinking of making it a family outing.

Mighty Marvel Geeks 171: Figures With John Tyler Christopher

This week, the Intrepid Trio invites Marvel Comics artist John Tyler Christopher into the Above-Ground-Underwater-Volcano-Lair. John hits the ground running talking about his claim to fame, the action figure variant covers. Beginning with the Star Wars books and going to the most recent published books, he’s had his hand on it. John talks about what the action figure variants have meant to him as an artist and the guys talk about what it means for them as fans. JTC even goes on to discuss how a certain character could conceivably bridge the MCU and the Star Wars Universe. The Star Wars talk also brings up an obscure and missed character from the early Marvel run as well as toys that never saw the big screen.
