7/10 for me. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was much better.

Wonder Woman completely blew this out of the water. It was so much more emotional, the characters had more depth and I thought the overall pace was much better. Spider-Man was lighthearted fun, entertaining for sure. Don't need to see it again.

Word is that after Infinity Wars a lot of things will change in the MCU. RDJ is done as Tony Stark and the rest of the Avengers status are unknown. One speculation I've heard is that if Tony Stark is killed off that Miles Morales will wear the Iron Spider suit to replace him. I have no idea what the likelihood of that is though.

Really fun movie! 8/10. Great humor, great surprise twist. Could have done more with the female lead. The movie really humanized spiderman.

This is what early Spider-Man was like though. Every time they do a reboot they tell the origin story like we don't know who Spider-Man is and forget the early high-school days. They want to skip all that and jump to college Spider-Man who was a little more experienced and took on bigger villains. This was a great movie from a story telling stand point. And the best part is it was fun as hell.

Thought this one was one of the better marvel movies I've seen. Loved it. Think these trailers give out way too much before the movies start though

8/10 for me. Glad it wasn't another origin reboot. Twist was good.

Also impressed they were able to pull off vulture as a villain without being cheesy.

Avengers didn't feel like it took place in NYC, THIS MOVIE felt like it was a living, breathing NYC.

Loved Keaton as the Vulture.

What this movie does, actually make the case that the Avengers and Tony Stark are the REAL bad guys who literally destroyed the life of a middle class man who just wanted to give his family the BEST in life possible.

That speech where Keaton talked about the super rich and how ordinary men will always be fighting THEIR wars...oh I was EATING that stuff up.

The stuff I wasn't keen on, the Spider-man suit is essentially an Iron Man suit with an AI giving Peter all these attack modes. Now Interrogation mode had me laughing in tears. But there was too much of that "the suit" stuff going on.

I also was confused on the lesson. Tony berates Peter for being reckless then rewards him for doing the same thing.

Great Peter Parker film, So-so Spider-man film.

I just saw the trailer. I'm kind of surprised; it was actually decent.

The Iron Man suit was stupid. I would skip the movie purely for that alone.

I grew up in Tobey's generation, so to me, he's always going to be the definitive Spider-Man. He just needed better material to act with.

Michael Keaton was by far the best part of the movie

That scene where he's in the car piecing together that Peter is actually Spider-Man was amazing, and the use of the traffic light (with it being red as he's thinking to green as he puts it all together, as well as being a shift from Spider-Man's color to Vulture's color) was a great touch.

Solid addition to the MCU, definitely one of the better Spider-Man movies. Not my absolute favorite, and I wouldn't pay money to see it again, but enjoyable

Also
Spoiler:
I've heard people say that the twist that Liz was Vulture's daughter was unexpected, but I thought it was pretty obvious from the start. The first we see of Vulture, he has his kid's drawings, which appear to be around age 8 or 9, then we jump forward 8 years, we never see Liz's parents until the reveal, and when Vulture's goons are looking for the purple glowy thing in the school,
one of them says "Imagine if he knew we were here," which all together is pretty heavy foreshadowing, IMO.
The reveal was very well done, the music cutting out right as Vulture opens the door, then the mother coming out of nowhere when you're expecting a jump scare, that entire 10 minutes is probably the best part of the film
He said: "K-Dot, can you pray for me?
It been a **** up day for me
I know that you anointed, show me how to overcome."
