WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS: MARVEL/SONY’S “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”(SPOILER FREE)

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds! “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS” is back.. Today’s movie?..

Ok.. Here. We. Go!

THE STORY: “Several months after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man as a new threat, the Vulture, emerges.” 

I thought the story was a great story. The plot was surprisingly strong. I dont know who can get more credit when it comes to the story. Marvel or Sony. There are some elements that can point to where a Marvel idea was put in and where a Sony idea was put in. There are.. Element problems with the story (I’ll get to that later) But over all, a very good story.

THE CAST:

By far the best cast in a Spider-Man film. Ever! The two stand outs.. Tom Holland and Michael Keaton! Keaton actually was.. A god send for this film.

 If he was not in this movie, as this character.. This would have been a completley different movie. I honestly believe he was the backbone of the movie. Tom was a fantastic Peter Parker and a very good Spider-Man.

 With room to grow as that part of the character. Robert Downey jr. Was RDJ. What more can i say about him that hasn’t been said already. Morisa Tomai is a great version of Aunt May. They play up the idea of her being the ‘Hot Aunt’ very well. Zandaya

 was a bright spot every time she was on screen. The other members of the supporting cast was good.

 Very talented actors and actresses, played their parts perfectly. 

THE POSITIVES: 

Keaton. Keaton. Keaton. Keaton! I’ve never loved The Vulture, until now. He gave that character such.. Life. Such flavor. Such a soul! I rank Vulture just behind The Kingpin in the list of best Marvel Villans, 

1: Loki

2: Kingpin

3: Vulture

4:Ultron

5:Red Skull

6: Zemo

Thats my list.. 

Tom Holland..

Brilliant. Just brilliant. Couldnt have asked for a more perfect Parker. With the added benefit of his Spider-Man of being able to grow and become the best Spider-Man since Maguire. Zandaya was great. The story. The characters. Although we never got this version of The Shocker.. (Spoiler?!)

The version we did get..

Was both interesting and fun! 

Donald Glovers cameo..

Maybe a spoiler.. But heres a hint..

Very interesting. 

The use of comedy was well played. It wasn’t a full blown comedy but there was a lot of comedic moments, all of them used appropriately.

And lastly.. The Twist with Vulture..

Very, very well played. Saw it coming at the moment it was coming.. But very well done and very well executed. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

Ned made me miss Harry Osborne. Not a knock on the actor. He was good. Just did not like the character. Annoying in my opinion. Used very well at the right times. But just.. Did not sit well with me. Maybe in the sequel? Hopefully I’ll get used to him.  Flash Thompson.. Not my Flash, but.. Okay, I’ll go with it. Diversity for the sake of diversity, isn’t always the best thing in my opinion. I could appreciate the freshness of this new Flash Thompson.. Just.. Idk.. Not what im used too, not what i was hoping for. But, I’m gonna go with it. And no.. It is not because of the race of the actor nor the look of the actor. It was the characteristics and the way he was presented that didn’t grab me. He could have at least bulked up or something. Do some pushups kid.  The “Other Twist”?… Fuck You! Reminded me of the shit Nolan pulled in ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Did not appreciate that and it stunk of Sony’s handiwork. A lot of the things i didnt like, felt like things Sony shoved in. I could be wrong, I dont know what was added by whom, but it just felt like things that were not necessary, was Sony’s doing. Spider-man was soo damn clumsy! I have never seen such a clumsy version of spidey, ever, in my whole life. I hated that. He seemed more comfortable in Civil War, taking on other superheroes, then he did swinging through the city. It was weird. Granted. I understand the fact that this is a 15 year old kid, and they are trying something different and new.. But damn! It was like watching George of The Jungle “Watch out for that tree!” Lastley, he seemed.. De-powered. Did not like that. He seemed slower for no apparent reason. I saw a severe lack of Spider-Sense. Like as if he didn’t have it. Hope they change that.

OVERALL: 

The best Spider-Man film since, Spider-Man 2! A great time at the movies. A worthy addition to the MCU. A great movie. Not without its flaws, but what movie doesn’t have some of those. Also, be sure to stick around for both After credits scenes.. Totaly worth it! (πŸ˜‰πŸ˜)

I give “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 6/10. Absolutely Great! A must see!

Let me know your thoughts folks. What did you like, what didn’t you Like. Hit me up. Comment below. Please like and follow! Much appreciate you reading..

Until next time folks.. Peace out!

BREAKING NEWZ!!: “SONY ANNOUNCES MAJOR STAR FOR “VENOM” SOLO FILM!”

As you may have already heard. Sony has cast Venom for their stand alone film, scheduled for an October 2018 release.

As reported by COLLIDER NEWS’ John Campea (video link at the end of this article) Sony Pictures has cast TOM HARDY as Eddie Brock aka VENOM! 

This is fucking HUGE for me right now. First talk of a stand alone Venom film with out any connection to Spider-Man was a pretty big “Fuck No!” from me. Then i thought about it further after hearing of the Black Cat/ Silver Sable film, i figured.. “Ok, Maybe.. But do it right..” 

NOW.. Your telling me that you got Tom Fucking Hardy as Eddie Brock Venom?.. “FUCK YEAH BITCH!! Lets do this.” 

Granted.. This does not fully guarantee that this is going to be the greatest movie ever. They still have that hurdle of making this story work with out Spider-Man. Best of luck to them. But this right here, is a fantastic move on their part. 

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “The VENOM and BLACK CAT/SILVER SABLE Films In The Works At SONY PICTURES”

Earlier this past week Sony Pictures announced plans for a VENOM stand alone film, set to hit theaters sometime in 2018. And a possible BLACK CAT & SILVER SABLE team up film. Production and release date TBD. 

I was busy with a fan fiction (The Killing Joke:Aftermath. For those of you curious) So i didn’t have time to touch on this bit of news.. But Now I Do..

Lets start with VENOM. 

According to reports SONY has locked down the release date for October 5th, 2018 for the stand alone feature. Reports further stateing that the film will be a rated R outing, strictly seperate from the Spider-man Marvel/Sony MCU. Meaning the plan is for the movie to be a strictly SONY produced project, not jointly with Marvel Studios. Also meaning Spider-Man would not factor into any part of this story or ‘Venom-verse’ if you will. 

I am.. Slightly worried about this. I am intrigued. But worried. The comic book puriest in me says, “The Fuck kind of bull shit is this?! You cant have Venom without Spider-Man!” on the other side of that coin, the movie fan says, “It could be a HUGE mistake, but worth trying. Lets see how it goes.” 

So, I’m torn. We all know the true origin of Venom, 

Eddie Brock was (and is again) the one true Venom. He spins right out of the pages of Spider-Man. Its hard to picture one without the other. 

However, Eddie was not the only Venom. SONY could just as easily make an AGENT VENOM film..

Flash Thompson loses both his legs in battle during a war. Comes home and gets joined to the venom symbiot. That could work. Flash Thompson doesnt have to be exactly tied to Spider-Man because he’s such a secondary character. A historic and important character.. But still secondary non the less. 

 It has the slightest of chances of working. And if it does GREAT! But it also has the potential for failing miserably! Like Spider-Man 3 Venom did..

It’s 50/50 at this point. What does really kinda intrigues me though.. It will (probably) be rated R.. (probably). 
That could work! Venom is that kind of character. That means that if a sequel comes.. Carnage is not far behind..

And Carnage can not be in a live action film and be toned down to a PG/ PG13 version. He has to be full of blood and gore! And the more i think of it.. The more im sold on the idea of a separate Spider-Verse. 

Lets move on to the ladies..

BLACK CAT and SILVER SABLE!

Ones a world class thief, the other a world class mercenary for hire.. Out of these two film ideas, Venom and this one.. I am less torn on this one.. If done right.. This could be pretty darn cool. Felica Hardy is much like Flash Thompson, key character in Spider-Man history.. But completely secondary! She doesnt HAVE to be tied to Spider-Man in order for her character to shine. 

Silver Sable is such a low teir character.. They could just about do anything with her. Just as long as they stay true to certain character traits, just to apease us fans. 

I could see something along the lines of a more badass version of Rush Hour, 48 Hours, and Lethal Weapon.. But with Kick ass ladies in the drivers seat! 

If they have the right story. The right people behind it.. This could be really fucking awesome. 

Venom can go either way depending on the story and the people behind it. SS/BC could do the same, but with a lot less pressure on its shoulders as Venom does. Im interested. Im on board.. 

Lets see what you got SONY!

What do you folks think? Are you excited? Pissed? Dont give a shit? Let me know. Leave a comment. Follow/Subscribe. Thx for reading..

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“BREAKING NEWS!”- ZENDAYA’S Mystery Role Revealed!?(SPOILER ALERT)

So.. According to sources close to “THE WRAP”and various other news sites. Zendaya’s mysterious role in “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMMING” has been revealed.

According to those close sources of “The Wrap” Zendaya is set to play, not Michelle as first officially reported, but in fact our favorite Red Head.. Mary Jane Watson! 

IF! In fact this IS true… I am so fucking HAPPY!!!  I love her on K.C Undercover on Disney Channel. She is a funny and phenomenal talent! She can sing. She can dance. She can act! She Has the look!

I am so stoked about this. Clearly, shes not gonna be the over sexed version of the character, because it all takes place in high school. But she is beautiful! And she can be that kind of M.J while still being very innocent at the same time. 

Again, if this is in fact true.. I am so stoked and excited for Spider-Man: Homecomming! (still not a fan of the name.. But whateves) I truly believe that Marvel (and sony) “Just Hit The Jackpot”

Let me know what you folks think. Comment below and hit that subscribe buttom.. (wherever the heck it is!) Peace Out!

DONALD GLOVER CAST IN “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”!

Yes.. It is already old news. But I just wanted to take a minute to talk about Donald Glover’s casting in MARVEL/SONY’S “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” (really don’t like that title)

So, it’s been officially announced that fan favorite ‘Community’ star Donald Glover has been cast in the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming”

image

For a very long time now, fans have wanted 32 year old Glover to be cast as..

image

15 year old Miles Morales, AKA Ultimate Spider-Man.

image

Stupid idea/online campaign I have ever heard.. But understood to say the least.

Needless to say, I am not at all on board for a Donald Glover/Miles Morales casting call. Miles needs to be a young kid. Tom Holland is 20, looks 17/18.. Get someone at least 18.. Looks 15/16.

So, what role could Glover play in the Spider-Man reboot? Here’s some of my ideas..

THE TINKERER:

image

YES.. I just talked shit about age appropriate casting.. But making The Tinkerer younger wouldn’t be sooo bad in this case. Also Glover’s comedic talent would be a great addition to the character. Not only that, but Glover’s Tinkerer bouncing off of Micheal Keaton’s Vulture,

image

would be a great thing to see on screen.

ROBBIE ROBERTSON:

image

Another aging down of a character.. But Glover would make for a good Robbie. He has the ability to play the character with a lot of heart and integrity.

This next one is going to be a huge stretch, so give me some space…

Donald Glover.. In the Ultimate Cameo, as..

THE CHAMELEON:

image

Yes.. The Chameleon! We are already getting two villains in this film.. I’m not lookin to jam pack it with a third.. BUT! Donald Glover could be a unique character for the film.. Nothing to big or Β distracting from the plot.. Border line straight up cameo. END CREDITS SCENE: Glover removes his face to reveal.. The Chameleon, setting up something for future movies. Either the next Spiderman film.. Or SONY’S (still in the pipeline) Sinister Six film!?

Ok. That’s what I got folks.. Please feel free to comment your thoughts..

So, Until Next Time Folks.. Peace Out!

“CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR” (SPOILER FREE) MOVIE REVIEW!

Continue reading “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR” (SPOILER FREE) MOVIE REVIEW!

“SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”: Real Title, Or Marvel’s Elaborate Hoax?!?

image

I will try to be as brief as possible..

“SPIDER-MAN:HOMECOMING” is the title for the Marvel backed reboot of Spider-Man (for Sony)

I DON’T LIKE IT! (Sorry) but I don’t.. It looks like the title for an animated feature.. Even the design looks cartoonish. AND I think it’s a hoax! (Allow me to elaborate)

Can it be possible, that Marvel Studios, Disney, Sony and all the heads over there, along with Kevin Fiege, couldn’t come up with a better name and title then “HOMECOMING”?!? (I’m gonna be doing some stretching here, so give me some space.) Way back when, Mr.Fiege and the folks at Marvel held a little event at the El Capitan theater. In which they announced their entire film slate for Phase 3. The first title they announced was “CAPTAIM AMERICA: SERPENT SOCIETY” It was an official looking logo.. But then Kevin pulled a fast one and said, “Thats not the title. Lets pull up the real title” and with a roar from the crowd, “CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR” faded on to the screen.

So is it possible that the folks at Marvel are messing with us right now?!

I CERTAINLY THINK SO! (I really wouldn’t put it past them)

I honestly believe (and desperately hope and pray) That the REAL NAME of the Spider-Man reboot will be…

image

Maybe it’ll be announced at D23, or another Marvel “event” perhaps. Along with other casting announcements? Who knows!

WHILE IM ON THE SUBJECT OF CAST!

RDJ is now confirmed for the filmimage

Joining Zandaya, Tom Holland and Morisa Tomei.

So far, Marvel’s Spider-Man Universe is looking pretty darn awesome.. But, FUCK! That Name tho.. Smh!

What do you guys think. REAL TITLE OR ELABORATE HOAX?! Let me know your thoughts! Thanks for reading and please follow and subscribe to the blog! Thank you.

So, Until next time folks… Peace Out!
