Hello happy Monday. Yesterday I went to see Spider-Man Homecoming.
This is the first Spider-Man movie I’ve been excited to see in a while after a few disappointing movies. The first thing that got me excited was that he was in Captain America: Civil War and Marvel were giving the rights to make a Spider-Man movie. It was Marvels big chance to make a good Spider-Man movie about one of the most famous Marvel characters and most famous superheroes ever. They introduced him in a big way first in Civil War He stole the show in that movie as he showed up stole Captain Americas shield and uttered the now famous line in the movie “Hey everyone.” Mavel got everything right the choice of actor Tom Holland is a great Spider-Man, the best in my opinion, the suit was right and his humour which is a big part of Spider-Man.
Now came the big test a Spider-Man movie. With his entrance made in Civil War it was time for Tom Hollands Peter Parker/Spider-Man to make his first big movie and make it good. Tom Holland and Marvel have certainly succeeded in making this a big, funny and in my opinion the best Spider-Man movie ever. It has so many elements to this movie. You’ve got the big superhero action sequences, to the friendship and relationships he has with his Aunt May and with Tony Stark his mentor. It has funny moments and is a coming of age story. A young 15 year old boy having these powers and learning to juggle everything in his life. In parts it reminded me of an 80’s teen movie, with some of the music and especially the scene of him running through the gardens with Ferris Bueler playing on tv as he passes through those gardens. Michael Keaton is great as The Vulture and Robert Downey Jr is as always awesome as Tony Stark. I like the fact they made Aunt May younger and cast Marisa Tomei she’s funny and likeable as her. His best friend and relationship they have in the movie is great too and funny to watch. Of course there’s a love interest but there’s no Gwen Stacey or Mary Jane. His love interest in this is a girl in his high school called Liz and maybe Michelle in the next film? There’s a few twists and surprises in the movie which I won’t spoil and some cameos too from Donald Glover and Jon Favareau. There’s some more cameos too but I won’t spoil that either.
So all in all I was impressed by the movie and think they got everything spot on. This has to be the best Spider-Man movie ever made and Tom Holland the best Peter Parker/Spider-Man too. It’s also one of Marvels best movies too. The movie as a whole felt like a celebration that Spider-Man was home at Marvel and Homecoming is the perfect name for the movie too because he was home where he belongs. So if you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? Go, no seriously go see it. You won’t be disappointed.
Thanks for reading.
Hello, I’ve been a fan of movies ever since I was a kid. I loved going to the cinema as a child and I still do now. It’s a good way to escape the world and visit different parts of the world, whether it’s somewhere in our world or a make believe place. The movies I grew up watching as a child in the 80’s and 90’s were great. There’s so many classics ranging from si-fi to action, adventure, comedy and horror. It’s hard to pick a top ten but these are mine.
1. Star Wars
3. Raiders Of The Lost Ark
4. Back To The Future
6. The Goonies
7. Jurassic Park
8. The Karate Kid
9. The Lost Boys
10. The Monster Squad
Star Wars: Star Wars is one of my all time favourite movies that I’ve loved from seeing it as a young child. I became a fan straight away and watched all the movies and had all the toys. When episode 7 came out, I was like a kid again going to see it I was so excited even more than my son and seeing it with him and watching him feel the same way about it as me was awesome. I’ll always be a fan even though the prequels were pretty bad.
Jaws: Jaws is a classic movie for me, I first saw it at a young age and remember seeing the great white shark fin in the water and that famous music playing and becoming obsessed with sharks from that moment on, especially great whites. There is so many iconic moments in the movie from the one I just described to the famous “We’re going to need a bigger boat.” The moment of the first shark attack which you don’t even see the shark building suspense to when you do. To the moment of Quint gets eaten alive are all great parts of a classic movie. It was the start of the big summer blockbusters and launched Stephen Spielberg’s career.
The top two are my favourites for the reasons above and the rest I could go on about for ages but I’ll cut it short a bit here. The Karate Kid is one of my favourites because I’m also a big fan of martial arts and was am a big fan of Bruce Lee. The Lost Boys was the first horror movie I ever watched and I loved it instantly. It got me into horror movies and vampires. The other movies are all classics and I’m sure there in most people top ten and there’s other films I watched growing up I love too, but these all stand the test of time for me and can still watch to this day.
Thanks for reading. Read my thoughts on Spider-Man Homecoming tomorrow.
Hello, yesterday I went to see Captain America: Civil War the third movie in the Captain America franchise.
Marvel are ruling the superhero game at the moment and have had some huge hits including The Avengers and the surprise smash hit movie Guardians Of The Galaxy which I loved. I’m a big Iron Man fan so of course I’m team Iron Man. I always love the anti hero rebel type and identity more with them. Civil War was a really good movie the pace of the movie didn’t drag and they introduced new characters like Black Panther and Spider-Man really well, although it didn’t really reveal how Tony Stark knew that Peter Parker was Spider-Man but I liked the way he was introduced to the Marvel universe. The fights were really good and fun to watch. The story was good and this is how to do a superhero fight movie.
I saw Batman Vs Superman last month and although I don’t think it was as bad as the critics said, it could have been better. Ben Affleck was great as Batman you can’t fault his performance. It just could have had a better story and could have been directed a little better, although I did actually like it.
I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in future Marvel films especially Black Panther as I liked him in Civil War and it’s going to be interesting to see what they do with Spider-Man I just hope it’s not another origin story. I don’t think anyone can sit through another one.
If you haven’t seen it yet I recommend you go see it, it’s a great movie.
