Finally got to watch Homecoming. It was an okay movie, these are the few gripes I have about it:
You'd think that high school would present a ton of opportunities to challenge Peter's responsibilities, but they don't- tests and homework aren't a problem, the 'bullying' is nothing really (this version of Flash is really bad), and Liz forgives him at every turn. Along with Aunt May barely being a presence beyond "stay out of my room mom!" esque material, the arc Peter has is just, that he goes from being a screw up to not being a screw up. It just doesn't have the heart or learning experience of previous movies.
Aside from all that, the action isn't great, the music isn't great (Giacchino's other score on War for the Planet of the Apes is 1000x better), too many jokes evey 15 seconds, too much Iron Man (even though Stark himself isn't in the movie much, his presence permeates throughout the film, through Happy, through the high tech suit, the A.I., and the constant 'internship' front), and even Peter was so full of wide-eyed wonder that it started to border on annoying. I get that that's who he is, but damn. Finally, on a personal gripe, they give him the best friend 'support guy' in his ear, that I've absolutley come to LOATHE in current superhero shows like The Flash, Supergirl, and Arrow.
Spiderman Homecoming is not a bad movie, by any means, but I definitely expected better with him being in the MCU now. Maybe I really am growing out of this phase, but this just wasn't for me. The only thing I liked about it was Michael Keaton.
I still prefer the Raimi movies. Hopefully the sequel will be much better. This one doesn't beg to be rewatched biko.

cao:Thor ragnarok review
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 10:55pm On Nov 01, 2017|
Shittaakeem:Fun and entertaining, Thor at his funniest. But, there are times where things are going really fast, especially during the first act. Certainly, the best Thor film.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 10:26am On Nov 02, 2017|
Thor ragnarok is a joke delivery system..... if you are hoping for an epic, serious ragnarok story you'll be disappointed....
The villain was weak, but come on it's an academy award winning actress we are talking about here so her representation was on point...
its not the death personified we know from the comics, no real depth to the hela character.....
is the movie enjoyable?
yell yeah.... The joke delivery system works so well that it doesn't feel forced it's just entertaining and you're just going for the ride, Thor is a unique case, you kind try this tonal change and it will work for Thor, it may not work for Cap.
There's a joke like in every 2 secs but funny enough it makes it cool cause it's properly done and the director's approach fits Hemsworth.....
it was a good flick..... masterpiece? nah!!!! what was joss whedon smoking when he said that?
would i have preferred a more serious take on the ragnarok story?.. yes, but I like waititi's version too, it just seems enjoyable unlike gotg2 which I hated but let's not talk about that now.....
kind of cool visuals the cgi sometimes felt off.
cool fight scenes.
New characters, there's a cool rocklike henchman for Hela... that character was cool forgot his name I'll google it now...
I actually like the plot
Waste of planet hulk arc...
waste of the ragnarok title
didn't like the ending....
7.5/10 worth the watch and the best marvel entry this year....
Infinity war and black panther better bring the serious tone we are expecting....

|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by SIRcumalot: 5:24pm On Nov 05, 2017|
Thor Ragnarok is really good.

it will soon reach the 1 billion mark! it's surprising the way these movies are grossing mind boggling sums of money within a short timeframe. Very impressive stuff
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Shittaakeem(m): 1:16am On Nov 07, 2017|
Breaking!!!!!! Fox to sell it entertainment division to Disney Which means Hugh Jackman dream of becoming an avenger might come true.
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Kingrapha(m): 11:30am On Nov 07, 2017|
Shittaakeem:that's not opening numbers, RAGNAROK was released in foreign markets and made about 130m before its North America and China releases.... So it's opening weekend for north America and China but 2nd weekend for other foreign markets..... RAGNAROK is currently making about homecoming numbers..... I see it rounding up at about 870-900m.....

it not hd but you can see
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by cao(f): 1:24pm On Nov 18, 2017|
Punisher is a violent slow paced action drama and I liked it*. But don't go in expecting action every 2 seconds. Plus, it has Shohreh Aghdashloo in it, which puts it in the awesome section by default. Love her voice (and yes she's also a good actress). Oh and for the first time in MCU Netflix history, Claire did not make an appearance.
*Yes, y'all know I really enjoy my slow paced shows (except London Spy).
|Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe by Sultan5(m): 12:07pm On Nov 22, 2017|
Punisher definitely the best Marvel series this year. And the only one that actually met expectations.
