Spider-Man: Homecoming SPOILER REVIEW

Image Courtesy
Unfortunately this week has been insanely busy.  I was planning to publish this review yesterday and then my review of Ghost Rider (in which Nicholas Cage answers the question "What if Nicholas Cage were a really good motorcyclist and accidentally sold his soul to the devil?").  Unfortunately that didn't happen.  Then I was going to publish this tomorrow and Ghost Rider today, but I realized that I never actually finished writing that review!  So now this is getting published today, and hopefully Ghost Rider will come tomorrow.  I'm sure you're all waiting with bated breath for it...

Spider-Man: Homecoming has been out for a few weeks already, but I was on vacation the week after it came out and busy recovering last week, so this is the first chance I’ve gotten to finally sit down and write a full review (spoilers and all).  There really isn’t much more to add about the movie, but there are a few things I wanted to say in the previous review and couldn’t.

Obviously there will be spoilers this time around, so you’ve been warned.  Although if you haven’t seen this movie by now, you really need to get out from in front of the computer screen, and get yourself in front of a theater screen!

Elektra REVIEW

You know, if anyone ever complains about Elodie Yung’s portrayal of Elektra—or about any female superhero, for that matter—I’ll just send them this movie anonymously.  And I really wouldn’t feel bad about giving it away, either.  This is one of those movies that I bought on clearance when our local Hastings closed, and I’m pretty sure I still got cheated!  Of course, I’m pretty sure any deal in which you pay for this movie is a rip-off…

Let’s just get this thing over with.

Daredevil (film) REVIEW

I have just one thing to say to all those people who think the Daredevil Netflix series falls flat in season 2:  “Have you seen the 2003 movie???”

The Daredevil movie isn’t exactly bad per se.  It certainly has some neat and interesting moments, and several good action scenes.  At least some of the actors are clearly having fun with their roles, and they fit in some neat Easter eggs.  However, I don’t know whether the writers just didn’t understand the source material or whether they didn’t care, because this movie isn’t quite there to the comic book characters.

Spider-Man: Homecoming NON-SPOILER REVIEW

Considering that Spider-Man: Homecoming seems poised for a $100 million-plus opening weekend, I doubt I need to publish a non-spoiler review for it!  However, for those few people who have something to do and are waiting until after the weekend to see it, here you go.

If you just want the executive summary of the review, here you go:  It’s great, probably one of the best Marvel movies ever made (which is saying something), and if you aren’t fanboying over the Sam Raimi movies it’s probably about the best Spider-Man movie yet.

Obviously there’s a little bias in that statement since I just got out of the theater about an hour ago and the last movie I watched was Daredevil (and Elektra is the next on my radar *shudder*).  However, having watching the previous five Spider-Man movies recently, I don’t think it’s out of place to say that this is the best one out of the six.  I will go into that more *eventually*, but for now here’s the non-spoiler review.

Spider-Man: Homecoming EXPECTATIONS

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 REVIEW

Well, it was going to happen.  I watched The Amazing Spider-Man 2 again, so I’m going to review it.  And you’re going to read about it (maybe).  At least the next review I publish will be for Spider-Man: Homecoming, which *should* be better than at least the last 3 Spider-Man movies I reviewed!

This is one of those movies that has a number of good points, but each of those good points comes with a major caveat.  And then there are a whole bunch of other issues with it.  So this movie really does deserve all the hate it receives.
