Great movie waaaaaay better than I expected. It was as fun as every marvel movie but the story was extremely well done. I have no complaints that wouldn't apply to every super hero movie

I really liked it. I'm glad he is really a kid again. My only complaint is that I think they underutilized Martin Starr. Donald Glover was great though.

This hurt my Fantasy Movie League
Box Office: 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Suffers MCU's Worst Second-Weekend Drop Ever

Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming isn't remotely a flop. Yet the $175 million-budgeted Marvel Cinematic Universe entry earned another $45.2m in its second weekend of release and has now earned $208.27m in ten days. But the film did drop 61% in its second weekend, identical to the second-weekend drops for Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that $45m weekend figure, from a $117m opening weekend, is identical to the $45m third weekend of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man (in 2002) and the second weekend of Spider-Man 2 (coming off an $88m Fri-Sun/$180m Wed-Mon debut in 2004).

So, barring some catch-up legs over the next month (and that's not remotely out of the question), we're looking at an identical multiplier to Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($202 million/$91m) and Spider-Man 3 ($336m/$151m). That will lead to a domestic total almost identical to the $262m cume of The Amazing Spider-Man (from a $137m Tues-Sun debut) back in 2012. And adjusted for inflation, it will be noticeably fewer tickets sold than that 2012 reboot. And if the second-weekend figure holds up, the 61.3% drop will be the worst ever for a Marvel Cinematic Universe title.

Went to see this movie last night... WOW!! Best Spider Man movie... ever. Tom Holland makes such a perfect Spider Man. The fact that this takes place totally with in the time Peter is high school is so refreshing. Dumps the need for a love interest like the first two Spider Man runs depended on.

This movie ties into the MCU perfectly. You can understand and believe the plot line. This isn't some far fetched ideals like in the Amazing Spider Man or some Sam Raimi/Toby Maguire lovefest. This does take place in a world where super heroes exist, but you can totally understand the motivations of Michael Keaton's character along with this crew. Tom Holland's Spider-Man is fitting of a 15 year old growing young man.

This movie is fantastic, I highly recommend if you have not seen it. But if you go... go during the week as Tyler doesn't need anymore help in the Fantasy Movie League.

From the trailer it looks like a comedy.

We saw this today, I would need to rewatch 1 and 2 of McGuire, but I think this is the best Spiderman movie to date.

I agree having a "kid" play Peter is a huge plus. Holland is 21 though, playing a 15 year old. I worry he is going to quickly outgrow the teenage boy look.

Bmyoungs is right that there were a few plot twists I didn't see coming at all.

GotG Vol 2 is a much funnier movie, but I think I enjoyed this more. The story worked so well with the events from the other Marvel movies and I thought the villain was more memorable than most.

It bothered me they said "Damage Control" as much as possible. That hasn't ever been mentioned in a Marvel movie, but since the show is coming out soon they sure made it a point to bring it up often.

I have more to say about the movie but I'll save it for when I'm on the computer.

I thought it was interesting that Peter said the Washington Monument is the highest he's ever been. I would have assumed he's been to Manhattan and swing between skyscrapers, but he really is the friendly neighborhood Spider-man and hasn't left Queens. It was also funny to see him in the suburbs. He was able to get around on houses, but it took a lot more work. I think there was actually a shot in the trailer of Peter swinging through the tall buildings with Iron Man by his side, this never happened in the movie.

I really liked the scope of the villain. The problem I have with a lot of these super hero movies is how quickly the world is in danger. The Vulture really was something that was beneath the Avengers and that is why Stark tipped off the FBI to handle it. Vulture was just big enough to give Peter a challenge, but not big enough that he needed help.

The Captain America videos used in school were great. "Even though I think this guy is like a war criminal now or something."

Spoilers.
Vulture being his crush's dad was so great. There was a slight hint, but it caught me completely by surprise. When his goons are searching the school for the glowy thing, they talk about how mad he'd be if he found out they were searching there.

Peter being crushed under the building and screaming out for help was a pretty emotional scene...until they added the Tony Stark voice over. That made it a little cheesy. Up until then it was powerful watching a kid yell out for help when he thought he was strong enough to do it on his own.

Something I forgot to mention. Who else was distracted by Pepper Pots returning? The MCU doesn't need her around anymore.

Guys, I just don't get this movie. I'm going to trash it a bit, but I'm going to start with what it did well:

1) Vulture suit - God damn, this was so cool. They made it a little TOO intricate. Like, the feathers being able to cut and be controlled like fingers, etc. But it was still cool.
2) Michael Keaton - Was a good villain
3) Tom Holland as a kid
4) Vultures backstory. I loved the salvage job botched as a backstory.

But I don't get it. Like, there were no stakes in this movie. They had all these characters brought in as cameo roles that didn't really matter. They go from being family men needing a paycheck to selling next level weapons on the streets to get money. Even the final climax, Spiderman was just stopping a robbery. Every single guy on his crew had no problem murdering a f@#$@ing kid.

Iron Man literally had the machinery to bring two sides of a sinking cruise ship, while still moving, back together using tiny robots, but he didn't have an escort for literally the entire salvaged arsenal from a interstellar alien battle!? This is the stupidest oversight I have seen in a movie. There is literally zero chance of this. In fact, if it had been an avengers movie, there probably would have been a damn fight scene showing them escorting it and getting ambushed. This scene is the number one reason I hated it so much, but there was more.

Speaking of which, the whole 'screwed the pooch' thing Iron man kept accusing him of, because an alien gun exploded in the first place was a little far fetched. This was an alien weapon that has the ability to go through walls and be some sort of telekentic thing? But its Peter's fault somehow that it exploded after he stopped it from killing him. I thought this was hella dumb.

The Captain America cameo's were okay, but they were also kind of annoying. There were just too many.

Happy completely ignoring spider man all the time, and then spider-man getting shit on for doing stuff because he was ignored was also annoying. It happened like 4 different times

Pepper Pots is stupid. Gwenyth Paltrow may be one of the shittiest people on the planet, and we don't need to pay her money to act like she's a real human on screen.

Spiderman also had all of these internal struggles of doing the correct thing while Spider-man, but there was like a five minute scene where he debated dropping into a party for a bunch of idiot teenagers just to prove that he knew Spider-man. Not only that, but he had a provable internship with Tony Stark. Is the fact that he knew spider-man so far off that nobody believed him. And furthermore, its basically like a bunch of kids coming up to me and saying, "Oh, we've seen you with Tom Cruise, but you've never met Arnold Schwarzenegger?!? What a tool, nobody likes you!"

Honestly, one of my biggest problems is with the MCU in general. I'm so bored of them. I hated Civil War, and i hate all the tie-ins. They used to be fun, but for me its a chore to watch. The standalone movies are generally better for me, but this one had so much Iron Man interaction, that it was annoying. Especially for an origins story, I want to see the character himself, not Tony Stark be the main center of attention. And before you say he wasn't. He may not have had the most on screen time, but "Training Wheels Protocol" and "Baby sitting protocol" and all the limitations he put on the suit, etc, was referenced ALL the time.

This was one of the best things about the movie. I am so tired of super hero movies having to save the world/universe. Suicide Squad was awful because these 6 random people have to save the entire world from destruction. Peter Parker is a friendly NEIGHBORHOOD Spider-Man. I like that he is dealing with a threat that is small and local. I can believe that he is capable of solving it on his own and it is such small peanuts that the Avengers wouldn't be called in.

cwilkins88 wrote:Source of the post he didn't have an escort for literally the entire salvaged arsenal from a interstellar alien battle!?

The Avengers weren't in charge of that. Damage Control == Avengers. Again, it is probably too small of stuff for Avengers to be bothered about.

Comedy is subjective, but you are objectively wrong. They were hilarious, espicially with Hannibal Buress's commentary.

It's almost like these high school aged characters are acting like high schoolers.... A 15 year old kid is dumb enough to use a secret identity to look more popular in school.

That's the beauty of this, it WASN'T an origin story. I thought it was great things picked up immediately where Civil War ended. We don't need Spider-Man's backstory because everyone knows it.
