Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

Well Spider-Man: Homecoming was certainly one of my most anticipated movies of the year. Sony finally returned Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for an epic cameo in Civil War, and now we were going to get a full on standalone story for this new Tom Holland version of the wall crawler done MCU-style.  Add in Michael Keaton playing the villain, and you've got plenty of reasons to be hyped.

That of course made me super nervous going in.  I wanted this to be an Independence Day-level movie, the kind that I'd want to turn around and walk right back in for another viewing, and it's tough for a movie to live up to that kind of hype.  Not to mention it had to follow the few fantastic comic book movies we've already had this year and there have been serious concerns that the trailers may have spoiled the entire movie.

Alas Independence Day it was not, but as I've said before, even the less than stellar Marvel movies tend to be worth the price of admission so it's pretty rare to walk out unsatisfied.  Since I'm pretty late putting up the blog post, you've probably already seen it and formulated your own opinions by now, but here's my take on Spider-Man: Homecoming
