Spiderman: Homecoming

The newest Spiderman spins off from Captain American: Civil War in which Spiderman (Tom Holland) is recruited by Ironman to fight his fellow avengers. I always kind of wonder how they can keep recrafting Spiderman (I saw and loved the ones with Toby Maguire but never saw the ones with Andrew Garfield). In this newest version, Spiderman is 14 years old and in high school dealing with high school issues. He struggles to keep interested but dreams of being part of the Avengers; he is an intern with Stark Labs and keeps getting blown off by Happy, the guy paid by Stark Labs to keep at least a minor interest in Peter Parker. One day Parker happens into the schemes of the Vulture (Michael Keaton) and begins to pursue the case, hoping to make a name for himself and an impression on Stark. I had a great time watching this movie. It is very funny and I laughed during much of the movie – it reminded me of some of the corny tween and teen-oriented Nickelodeon shows (but Spiderman is much funnier). Parker is at his funniest when he stumbles his way through typical teenage days making videos on his phone, trying to fit in, and winning the affections of the girl he likes. There are a lot of interesting plot twists and good action scenes that keep the movie exciting. Of course, it would not be good Spiderman if the movie did not have a good message about strength of character the responsibilities that come with being a superhero. Tom Holland brings fresh, youthful energy to the role, and Michael Keaton is very good as the Raven. Reyle, Eliza and I saw it together and really loved it. Big thumbs up from me for a movie that is a lot of fun, very entertaining, and kept my interest. I hope there are other Spiderman movies that come from this – I will likely be seeing them.
