When I say it took me out of the film, I should've said only for that moment & scene. Liz is now gone to Oregon opening her place with Peter for MJ, & Toomes was still just an ordinary guy.
One of my first thoughts was maybe they could have a party with Batman v Superman's mom.

- I was very pleasantly surprised to see it wasn't an IronMan-Spiderman as Batman & Robin like the trailers offered up.
- Martin MOTHA FCUKIN' STAAAAR lols... movie written by Sam Weir, casting Bill as the teach ftw.
- Favreau was utilized very well here - basically whenever I expected IronMan to bully his way in, Happy did the deed.
- Very solid Spiderman tale, loved his flinging around the neighbourhoods being a kid. I liked his classmates & them being the one liners.
- Spiderman's Stark suit is the hallmark of this go round for me. That's in 'stark' contrast to the previous Spidermans - now we'll have Karen along for his Spiderman'ing, & as he's the logical heir to IronMan has MCU focal point, his super tech suit will keep us in that same lane.

- Vulture as Liz's dad? Took me out of the film that choice. I mean c'mon, you want me on the ride, I'm all in on the ride even if it's a kiddie ride, & bam, you shrink the world down to that & for what. His mid-credit moment, essentially protecting Peter does redeem him as a character for me. Even Keaton, so I've read, didn't even approach his role as a villain, & other than selling arms, he's really not trying to kill anyone or wreck the world like a true comic book villain. Criminal? Sure.
- I don't think I'll buy a home copy of this on blu, repeat viewings will surely flesh out the teen flick aspects & of course I'm really no longer there. This 'franchise' could be a good place holder for the current teen gen though, without any Harry Potters running around.

I guess we'll probably not see Spiderman in full glory again in the Avengers world until Infinity War 2 when he's aged a bit more & better trained? Parker chose to walk away from being an Avenger, they'll probably recruit him later on when the universe is blowing up or whatever.
Spiderman & AntMan would be a fun movie.

M&C was admittedly historical fiction, so whatever dramatic liberties I give it a pass.

Z (film) felt like it might've been fine as a tv mini series, its journey was more fascinating than its premise I think. I wouldn't have minded more Amazonian stuff.
Again, the book was based on factual adventures, there's probably only so much excitement to be had from a geographical explorer, esp when nearly most of their jungle trekking could be ended merely by walking off trail towards known settled mining sites.

Fantastic book, very good film. Plays like Master & Commander, in a realistic intellectual lane. I wished the film's payoff was greater.

I loved the book, easily in my top 10, maybe even top 5.
The movie thankfully plays to the intellectual side rather than curb for cheap thrills, along the lines of a Master & Commander (a film I love). Points for that, allowing it to feel true to the page rather than ride on title alone.
Alas, I wished the ending had more of a satisfying payoff. Yet I suppose that would have gone against what I just typed above, since no one saw & heard from Peter & Jack again. Fictional dramatization should only go so far I guess.

I was -not- expecting the actors who played Emperor Palpatine & Dudley Dursley from HP respectively. Their voices I could recognize in a coma.

I dunno... based on mass appeal, I suppose these qualify...

Jaws 2
Batman Forever
Me, Myself, & Irene
Wild Things
Attack of the Clones

8 of those are from established franchises depicting a bit of a lane change.?
Jul 16, 2017 11:09 PM
No, yet it does play against type from the flashier tv series. I wonder if more layered pop music might've helped that.

1. Arrested Development S2.
That season is sublime. Absolutely peerless.

HMs of course for LOST S1 & The Simpsons S5.

2. LOST.
It helped that I loved the show, its concepts, characters, production quality, & 6 seasons was a solid concise run.

HM Freaks & Geeks, which remains flawless as a single season.
