New look…and looking just as badass!
New look…and looking just as badass!
A stand-alone movie I’ve been waiting for since Civil War.
After the events of the first Avengers the streets of New York need to be cleaned up, obviously. Michael Keaton’s character is about of the crew that is cleaning up the mess our heroes have created. When an organization, run by none other than Tony Stark, they’re immediately shut down. Angry that himself and his crew is out of a job he takes it upon himself to steal some of the alien artifacts and sell them on the streets. Ultimately becoming the Vulture. What they did so well was make this ordinary dad, who has lost his job and a way to support his family into a realistic villain. A person can either find another way or lean towards crime and I thought that was brilliant! Rock bottom can make or break someone.
Present time and we see that Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is still very much eager in joining the Avengers after fighting along side Iron Man (Robert Downer Jr.). Then Tony tells him that he will call me when needed and sends Peter to a much more cruel place…high school. After months of nothing from Stark, Peter still tries everything to prove that he’s worthy by saving cats from a tree, to helping an old lady find her destination etc. Tom Holland as Spider-man couldn’t have been better. He is something we haven’t seen before and that’s a teenage Spider-man.
I wasn’t a huge Spider-man fan growing up and I did enjoy Tobey Maguire’s take but if I had to choose I would choose the animated series that really captivated the essence of the teen years of Spider-man. Tom really brought it because he is young. All the high school scenes and he’s struggle with wanting to prove himself but still dealing with crushes and bullies and homework and what teens actually go through was amazing to see. Another great character was his best friend Ned played by Jacob Batalon. He played the fascinated, nerdy and concerned friend that worked well in the film.
What they risked on was telling this origin story without really going into the origin story. It was freakin awesome! We know Aunt Ben died, we know Peter was bitten by a radioactive spider so we don’t need to see it. It starts off after Civil War and now Peter has to learn to live his life with what he’s witness and dealt it all in his teenage years. I didn’t expect to have loved it as much as I did. Granted, I went in with high expectations between we had already experienced Tom Holland in Civil War and loved it, so this was to be mega high. A lot of people were confused seeing Tony Stark in the trailers and thinking it was another Iron Man movie, but he really didn’t come on screen much and when he did he didn’t over stay his welcome and shy away from Peter. Like I said early, there is not Uncle Ben and the who ” with power comes great responsibility.” Tony fills in the mentor role with Peter and why Peter is do determined to impress him.
The action is awesome and a lot of it. The humor was great and was placed so well without it feeling like a comedy movie, because it isn’t. It’s a coming of age story that he so happens to be a super hero and there’s humor. There’s one typical scene where I had tears in my eyes because I was laughing so hard!
Tom Holland kills it as Peter Parker and Spider-man! The movie was fun, exciting, Michael Keaton is intimating as hell as the Vulture, and a achieved in creating a fan out of me. I can’t wait to see movie of Peter as his matures and definitely in Infinity War.
THERE ARE TWO POST CREDIT SCENES!
Spider-man: Homecoming was a film I didn’t now I needed until after I was walking out of the theater.
Until next time…
This is the 15th Marvel Movie!!
Star lord (Chris Pratt) ends up finding his long lost father whose played by Hurt Russell. Family reunion! Some of the guardians go with Hurt Russell’s character while Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Baby Goot, who is the cutest freakin thing, stay behind.
Vol. 2 is definitely a Star-Lord movie but its broken into groups of each of them! I was surprised that it turned out to be a very emotional movie. These gold people called the Sovereighn are hunting them down because Rocket had stoled valuable batteries from them. The Sovereign’s weren’t necessary for this movie other than leading into Rocket’s true natural.
Star-Lord reunites with his father. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) try to yet again, to kill each other because their sisters. Want I did like was that we were given a little more back story on how evil Thanos really is.
Then we’re with Rocket and that was a shock. I him as this comedic, strong willed raco… I mean person. To learn that was his defense mechanism was really an eye opening to how I will see him that was great.
Although I’m all for crying until the next morning, I found it too overwhelming. Not saying that they should take it all out but perhaps cut the time on each them. It felt like an origin movie than a sequel.
There was one thing I didn’t really like but that goes into the spoiler territory. The music of course was kick ass and I excepted nothing less!
I will say that there’s a scene with Star-Lord And Yondu that had me tearing up but because of Chris Pratt and his father that made that scene all the more powerful. I’ve read about how much this movie helped him with his father that i found it amazing that he took everything he was feeling and reflected it to Star- lord and that was great!!
Overall, it wasn’t as great at the first but I had a good time watching it. It had A LOT comedy relief, the cast has even better chemistry and I hope they change a few things in the next Guardians.
IF YOU’RE A TRUE MARVEL FAN THAN THIS ISN’T FOR YOU! THERE ARE 5, YEAH 5 POST CREDITS SCENES!
Guardians of the galaxy inspired the crap out of this teaser and I LOVE IT!!!!
The second Tom Holland arrived on the screen during Civil War I was hooked on him being the new Spider-man! When the first trailer released I was in awe and I’ve never said that when it came to Spider-man. Now trailer 2 shows more and if I had to critic about it is that they showed a little bit too much. It looks bad ass and I’m beyond excited for it, I just wished that would have kept some of the plot until you see the movie. Either way it looks fan-fuckin-tastic!
This trailer delivered!!
Iron man if he had a baby with Harry Potter and was sharing custody with Inception.
I knew absolutely zero about Doctor Strange, granted I’d heard of the name which was about it. Seeing the trailer, I had my doubts, and not because it didn’t look appealing but because it was a whole new movie with a new character. The bar had been set and pretty damn high with 10 Marvel films behind it, so I was expecting a hell of a movie.
Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a neurosurgeon, a very talented and egotistical. Choosing on patients based what would bring him more popularity instead of just saving lives for the good of his heart. The resembles between him and Tony Stark was perfect! A character that sees themselves as Gods and having it taken away to really show them what really lies beneath.
Strange get into a horrible accident causing him to fracture his hands and causing him to lose his job as a surgeon. Strange learns about a man who was beyond help and defeated the odds and walked when doctors, including himself, said he wouldn’t. Strange seeks help in Nepal who helped that very man walk in hopes he would be able to heal him hands.
The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) shows Strange the way of the force, or magic, and Strange becomes a believer. What I liked about this movie was how it made it clear that Strange didn’t want to be a hero and help fight bad guys but to just get the ability to work again and get his popularity back. It showed how the layer of his persona began to strip away. I enjoyed watching him learn about the magic instead him just suddenly become a great kick ass sorcerer.
Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) the bad guy in the movie has stolen pages from an ancient book that would destroy the very universe as we know it. The effects in this movie is WILD! I was worried that it just make you dizzy, look beyond weird and it not fit to the movie but it fit perfectly!
In every Marvel movie there’s a bit of humor, okay a lot of humor because it’s awesome, I wasn’t expecting much if not any humor in this one. Just like Doctor Strange I don’t know anything about Benedict Cumberbatch either. I saw him as a serious guy but the dude is funny! It had comedy that made it feel like a Marvel movie.
Doctor Strange was awesome, I had a great time watching and left with a Doctor Strange fan as well as Benedict Cumberbatch, two for one! I excited to see more of this character in the films yet come and beyond eager to see him with the rest of the cast from the previous movies…Infinity war maybe?
If you’re a TRUE MARVEL FAN than I shouldn’t be saying this but if you’re not, stay to the very end of the credits. Two scenes are shown and it’s worth the wait!
Doctor Strange will return.
