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! (๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜)

I give “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” a score of ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ 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. 

“NEWZ FLASH!: Catching Up On The Past Few Weeks Worth Of Geek News!”

Like I stated awhile back. I’ve been pretty ghost these past few weeks, so i will now attempt to give my unique view on all the shit i missed. Welcome, To The “NEWZ FLASH!”

(In no particular Order.. and keep in mind, im going based on pure memory..)

FIRST LOOK AT “THE INHUMANS” 

Marvel Studios’ long awaited attempt at bringing the ‘Real’ Inhumans to the Big Screen. We finally got our first look at the assembled cast in costume as The Royal Family. Lots of folks talked shit about it. “Bootleg X-men and “Too much leather” and “Where’s Madusa’s Hair?” are just to name a few of the comments that i saw. In my opinion. This looks fucking awesome! Madusa’s hair is obviously going to be CGI enhanced. Every one looks awesome. My only, only peev… The Attachment on Black Bolts head.. Where is it? Was that only apart if his mask? I thought that was actually apart of his head.. Maybe we will see it apart of the Royal Crown? Hope so.

MARVEL AND SONY’S SPIDEY DEAL:

Turns out the deal between Marvel and Sony Pictures has an experation date. It was revealed (to manys surprise) by a Sony Exec, that the deal would only last up to “Spider-Man 2”  Leaving many to try and calculate just how long Tom and co. Will be involved with the series. Tom is signed for a 5 picture deal (if i am not mistaken) With Civil War and the upcoming Homecoming counting for two. There is still Avengers 3&4, thats four films down, and many assuming he will appear in other marvel films later, Captain Marvel being a possiblity. That makes five and “Homecoming 2” could make six movies right there.  Now, with as much money as Sony Pictures looks to make over all these films, (even if its a small, small percentage. Moat of the money comes from their own spidey produced projects) It would be spectacularly Stupid (see what i did there?) for them to not get back to the table with Marvel and extend the deal. Which would be the most logical thing that will happen, once this initial deal is completed. 

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, NO LONGER TWO PARTER: 

Marvel Studio’s Announced that The Avemgers: Infinity War will no longer be a 2 part film, although they will still film both parts around the same time. Most likely to cut costs out of the already reported 1 billion dollar budget (If rumors are to be believed). The second part will also carry a different name. Many assuming that THE INFINITY GAUNTLET will be the name of the final film. My theory?.. Infinity war cpuld very well be pushed back to be the final film and Gauntlet would be the first one. Of course i based this on the fact that, Fiege and The Russo bros. Made it known that Thanos is the main character of the film. While our heroes would be the “side characters” persay.
BATMAN SOLO FILM RELEASE DATE..

*CRICKETS* *CRICKETS* *CRICKETS*

DEADPOOL GETS ANIMATED:

Deadpool is looking to break the 4th wall now on the small screen with an animated series scheduled for sometime next year for FXX and to be produced by Donald Glover and others.. No word as of yet on who would voice the merc with the mouth. My vote is for Nolan North. Thats a fucking no brainer right there.

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT.. STILL LOOKS LIKE SHIT!

Not actual news.. Just humble opinion.

WONDER WOMAN:

Please God Let This Be The One!!! Again.. Not news. Just humble opinion.

Im currently racking my brain trying to remember old news. But im coming up dry.

So here’s the latest one that dropped i think yesterday..

JOSS WHEDON’S BATGIRL COULD BE ON THE FAST TRACK: 

DC/WB is really feeling itself with the positive reviews and high hopes coming out of Wonder Woman. That some are reporting that the big wigs over there are looking forward to Batgirl being the next female lead hero flick to come out, instead of David Ayers’ Githam City Sirens. Which is still in the pipeline, but never the less, Batgirl could be next in line. So… Yay!

That’s all i got folks.. Hit me up with your thoughts and let me know what i missed, maybe I’ll add it in another “Newz Flash” also, let me know if you enjoyed this format of news. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“OFFICIAL SNEAK PEEK OF ‘SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING!'”

Just realesed mere hours ago, Take a look at our very first sneak peek at tomorrows trailer for Marvel (and sonys) “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” 

On a scale of 1 to holy fucking shit, how excited are you for tomorrows full trailer? 

“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!

PETER PARKER VS MILES MORALES: THE SPIDER-GATE SCANDAL!!

Hey there Ladies and Gentelnerds! I’m back to discuss with you the whole halabalo over the recent casting of Spider-Man and the public outcry over the fact that its not Miles Morales!

image

As all of you may remember. THIS ๐Ÿ‘† was the short list of Actors up for contention in the role of Spider-Man.. That’s a lot of White Bread right there,I tell you what.

And after a “Long and Extensive Search” Marvel Studios has chosen, Tom Holland.

image(Another Brit, if I’m not mistaken?!)

And of course.. My fellow Nerds and Nerdettes were kinda pissed! So I got to thinking.. Why all this hate for Peter Parker!? Why is there such a rush for Miles Morales?!

image

Sure! We are in desperate need of some diversity in the Comic Book Movie World.. But we can’t just toss aside the Original! The One that starts it all! Peter Parker IS Spider-Man.. Miles is also Spider-Man.. But Peter Parker IS And ALWAYS will BE, Spider-Man! I think it is best that Marvel… (Sigh) and Sony, Start with Peter Parker. IF Sony is serious about expanding its Spider-Universe. They need to figure out how to do it right! With Marvel setting it all up for them.. It shouldn’t be so hard.

“But We’ve seen Peter Parker so many times already! It’s time for a change!!”

image

That is undeniable. But you can’t start at the middle of a story and expect everyone to know what the heck is going on! There would be no Miles, if not for a Peter! And to be a little honest and blunt.. Not a lot of people, at least those who are not in to our world of comics, Know who Miles Morales is! Those who do know.. Is only because we shove him in everybody’s face! “Look!! This is the first ever Half Black, Half Latino Spiderman!! He’s fucking awesome!! Read his book!!”

Peter Parker’s Spider-Man is on the level of Batman and Superman Recognition, around the world! Allow me to put it this way.. (Something I picked up while watching my favorite YouTube movie show, “AMC MOVIE TALK”)

I did some research *GASP!!!!!!* yea, yea, yea.. I DID do some research.. In the month of April.. Of THIS year (2015) according to

image

‘COMICHRON: THE COMICS CHRONICLES’ (Comichron.Com) Which basis it’s Sales figures according to Diamond Comic Distributors, The leading Comic Shop Supplier in North America. As of April, an issue of ULTIMATE SPIDERMAN:Miles Morales comics, sold roughly 29,300+ Copies.

image

If you go on the website, and trace back to January of this year, up till April. You’ll most likely see USM:MM selling a steady 30-40,000 plus copies a month.. That means, just about.. I don’t know.. 60,000+ Comic Book readers know who he is. That Covers about, less then half of the Movie Goingย Audience. Which is the MAIN part, the Movie Studios want to get into the seats. They don’t really care about us. Cause in fact.. If it was solely up to us 60+Thousand.. A USM:MM movie would only make, that much in the Box office. While the Studio put 100+Million into making it! That would be a HUGE flop!

That being said.. Lets look at Amazing Spider-Man’s sales..

image

Also in the Month of April, an Issue of Amazing Spider-Man, sold about 99,300+ copies. I’m no math wiz.. But that’s triple Miles’s sales(right?!?.. Seriously, is it Triple?!) HELL! Tracking back to January.. SPIDER-GWEN sells better then Both Spider-Men!(But more on that Shortly!)

Peter Parker/Spider-Man is an established brand. There’s no ifs, ands, or butts about it!

HOWEVER!! This does NOT mean that we can NEVER get a Miles Morales film in the near future! It truly is a matter of doing it CORRECTLY!

If Marvel Studios sets up the proper Spider-Unviverse for SONY to work with.. AND most importantly.. IF Sony could dig its head out of its fat ass! They can follow up on what Marvel provides them. I believe an expanded Spider-Universe can happen.

HERE’S THE IDEA:

image

Marvel re-introduces us to Spider-Man, within the MCU. Establish him in to the world with appearances here and there. Get us used to the new guy and the new status quo, per say. Hand him over back to Sony, with your first film, lay the ground work for a massive SPIDER-U EVENT! Oh, I don’t know.. Something like.. “EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE” kind of event!

image

That way.. You can introduce every possible Spider-Man (or Woman) you could think of. Most importantly,

MILES MORALES

image

SPIDER-GWEN (Gwen Stacy)ย ย image

SILK

image

SCARLET SPIDER

image

SPIDER-GIRL/WOMAN

image

and (perhaps) SPIDER-MAN 2099!

image

The beautiful thing about the world of Spider-Man, and what could separate it from the rest of the MCU, Is the fact that, Each Franchise could exist within its own universe!

image

There really is no need to cram all these characters into one single timeline, or universe. There is so much potential in an idea like this.. I just hope Sony don’t fuck it up in the process! Or at the very least.. Don’t fuck up Spider-Man at all!!

I hope I made some kind of sense to you folks.. I would really like to hear your thoughts on this. SUBSCRIBE and ย Comment below, Hit me up on Twitter or Instagram. Thank you for your time folks!

So, Until next time folks… Peace Out!
