My Thoughts

I recall, when I was only tween age, I said to myself: I’m done with Spider-Man. But when Spider-Man Homecoming ended the only thing I thought was: five spools! Both my brother and I think that this is a fresh start to Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

There are a lot of things I liked about the film, but I’m only going to mention a few.  First of all, it feels fresh, young, and realistic, especially the main character and villain. I enjoyed Peter Parker’s character, as he always wanted to prove himself as a hero. The development he went through, to me, was astonishing. As for the villain, while I may not be familiar with the history of the character, Vulture’s motive felt really believable. As for everyone else, I loved the diverse cast of characters. I felt like each actor portrayed their character well. Finally, I loved the fact that the plot was straightforward, and it flowed nicely. Actually, the pace was so smooth that despite the film being two hours and thirteen minuets, I hardly noticed it. Never once did I beg it to end.

Overall Spider-Man Homecoming is, by far the best addition to the MCU. Like I said before, five spools! Oh yeah, make sure you stay till the very end to see the bonus scenes.

I really loved it!
