– MY REVIEW –
Those of you who have read my most recent Currently Reading, Watching… post will know that I’ve been planning to go watch the new Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: Homecoming as soon as I could! While I would have liked to avoid the crowds for another week (since this movie has just come out this past Friday) and go see Baby Driver first (another movie which I’ve been excited about), my boyfriend really wanted to see Spider-Man in stead, so took a leap of faith (haha get it?) and went!
The theater was quite full, which usually bothers an antisocial person like me, but I barely noticed once the movie started! It grabbed my attention from the very first scene, and held it all the way to the end! It was also quite funny! And I will say that I did enjoy laughing at the many funny parts with everyone in the theater too.
I really like Tom Holland as Peter Parker and think he’s the most adorable, and funny Spider-Man ever! There were so many scenes with him which made me laugh, and this was thanks to his acting, as well as the team behind the script. The other characters were great as well, and while I really enjoyed seeing Tony Stark/Iron Man and Steve Rogers/Captain America again, I particularly enjoyed the bits in which Peter interacted with the supporting cast.
I especially liked Peter’s best friend, Ned, and the rest of their classmates. Michelle was by far my favourite (and she’s played by someone named Zendaya, who seems to be really famous, but who I’ve never seen or heard of before because I live under a rock…and I may have a new girl crush now…). The teachers were pretty funny as well! But I won’t give anything away, so you’ll have to go see the film for yourselves in order to find out what was so funny. Overall this was a really great movie, and I would probably go see it again if someone paid for me (haha), and will definitely watch it again and again once it’s out on DVD!
