WHAT I LIKE?

Perhaps, this is the best Spider-Man Franchise ever. Far From Home is a visual spectacle that delivers everything you wanted from an MCU Film along with impressive cinematography and performances from its lead actors. First of all, the Plot picked up after The BLIP (The Thanos thing) and after the death of Iron Man. What I like about Far From Home is the connection it created in dealing with the loss of Tony Stark and the pressures it placed on Spider-Man. Given the fact that Peter Parker is literally young, I really commend the arc of the film where he fell in love with a girl and his vulnerability being a young teenager and an Avenger as well. It shows a great conflict of his character and the situation he’s into. Setting was also great. I loved the scenes in London and in Prague. Visually-speaking, Far From Home never disappoints. It was truly a spectacle of top-notch editing & action sequences worth every penny of your admission ticket. Acting chops are also satisfying. Personally, I am starting to let go Andrew Garfield as the best Spider-Man because of Tom Holland’s performance in Far From Home. Moreover, I really the chemistry of Tom & Zendaya here. Their charm and cuteness are all over the screen. I also loved Peter’s Squad in the movie. Spider-Man: Far From Home delivers a decent amount of entertainment, thrills and comedy we should be enjoying from a good Spider-Man movie. For me, this is highly-recommended to everyone who is either a fan of MCU or a fan of Spidey.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Well, the shirtless Tom Holland deserves a longer screen time MCU! C’mon!

WHAT I LIKE?

Spider-man: Homecoming is a refreshing reboot of the Spiderman Franchise under Sony Pictures. It was actually a decent franchise with lots of new things to look forward in one of the well-loved superheroes in the big screen. Let’s start with Peter Parker himself. Tom Holland was actually fit for the role. I like his vibe as a teenager and a normal high school student that is naive and innocent as a whole. He was actually the youngest Spiderman. Tom was impressive and I think it was a best choice to let him portray this iconic superhero. Story-wise, there are really lots of new things on this second reboot. Overall, it was actually good as the movie picked up after the recent Captain America: Civil War. You must watch it to know the reference of that film to the recent Spiderman adaptation. At some point, it was also good to include Iron Man as he plays a very vital role in mentoring Peter Parker in being an Avenger soon. I must commend Michael Keaton on this movie. He was just the best villain among all other Spidey franchises. Action sequences were great. I love the cinematography and the succession of scenes in the movie. Particulary, I love the Ferry and the Monument scene. The good thing about the movie is it portrayed the KID SIDE of Peter Parker. Ordinary scenes in the classroom and even while preparing for Prom, the movie gave that feeling that Spiderman is just a normal kid like us. Aside from that, the KIDDIE Portrayal was very effective to bring out the vulnerability of Peter Parker in making big decisions at a very young age. In that aspect, Spiderman Homecoming was on-point. Overall, it was a great Spiderman movie.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Being the 6th Spiderman movie ever made, you can’t help but compare the latest movie from all of its predecessors regardless pf the Film Studio that adapted it. Sadly, Spiderman: Homecoming doesn’t quite live up to the hype of this iconic superhero. There is no problem with Tom Holland. He was a good Spiderman. Somehow, I just find him too young for this even though the whole premise wanted him to be that young. I was bit off with the whole story itself. At some point, the methodology of Spiderman was forgotten and the focus was placed more on Tony Stark mentoring Peter Parker and Peter Parker pleasing him to be part of the Avenger. I am missing the old Spiderman who doesn’t have to please a higher being like an Avenger to be recognized and to find his worth as a superhero. Spiderman should have that innate instinct to know what is right for him as shown in all other previous films. I understand that it was a refreshing take on the franchise but we all need to go back to our roots sometimes. I am also a bit bothered of the casts in the movie. Ned as a best friend is funny but I don’t like his personality in the movie and in reference of Spiderman itself. Also, Liza was a good lady interest but they seem have a lost connection with Peter at times. Aunt May was also cringe-worthy in the movie. I expected an older and conservative Aunt May here. Aside from that, the movie do not have a family connection. It is really important for a Spiderman movie to have that since superheroes have weak spots. It felt like it was more of Iron Man than Peter’s family. Some action sequences could have been better. Although the Ferry scene was my favorite but it lacks intensity and destruction feels enough to give way to a vital scene of Peter and Tony after that. The Climax was not that good as well. It failed to give that sense of accomplishment for me. Despite all these weak points, I still enjoyed the movie.
