Spider-Man: Homecoming: Watch or Nah?

Hello World! A few weeks ago, I saw Spider-Man Homecoming on opening night for my Birthday (on a related note I also saw the Amazing Spiderman on opening night for my birthday a few years ago so...) And then I saw again the following week. But anyway here's my review of the film as a whole, and if I'd recommend you watch it or nah.

Acting/ Performance

So like 90% of the cast are good actors. Some are even Academy Award winning actors. But that 10% is questionable...

Writing/Screenplay

Comments: 
The complexity of movie adaptations is trying be original while staying true to the spirit of original story, and it's hard - especially for comics where there is so much source material. Now, I don't follow comic books, but I know losers who do (not saying that comic book followers are losers, it just so happens that the only people I know that follow comics are my loser brothers, and they're just losers who happen to follow comics). With all being said, I thought the story was really good and it keep a great balance between light-hearted fun and intensity throughout the film. I especially enjoyed the lack of the Spiderman origin story, because seeing Peter Parker get bit by a radioactive again is almost as un-entertaining as seeing Bruce Wayne's parents get killed in an alley again. 



Cinematography

Marvel knows a thing or two about creating visually engaging films, and this film was no different. What I particularly liked about this film is although most of it was filmed in Atlanta, as a viewer, I never felt like I was not in NYC.

Costume Design

Comments:
Dope Spidey suit, and Tom Holland wears some pretty awesomely Peter Parker-est t-shirts!

Editing/Special Effects

Comments:
Another area where Marvel knows what they're doing, but I like how this film used practical effects to make it  look more realistic instead of relying solely on CGI.

Sound/Music

Comments: 
I had no real comments about the sound. I don't like it added or took away form scenes, but obviously scenes would be real without the soundtrack, so it was definitely necessary.


Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 4.5

Recommendation: Watch! 😀

I would recommend this movie to a variety of different people. If you're a fan of Spiderman, definitely go for it. You'll love it! If you like superhero movies, this is for you. MCU fans, check it out. If you like coming of age films, you'll enjoy it! If you like action adventure or action comedy, then you should definitely give it a go! This is just a fun cute film, that I think everyone will find some part of it to enjoy, so go on and watch it!
