Viewing Notes

IMAX & a/c - yeah I love this movie. Not entirely perfect but a very good punctuation on the MCU as we know it. Tony Stark is such a presence in the movie w/o actually being in the movie (bet RDJr loves that). I’m okay with it since Peter, Happy and the rest are still dealing with his death. It was a big deal so how do you move on… especially when everywhere you look is another reminder (all the tributes, the glasses, etc.).

It is rather interesting to rewatch the film after viewing that end credit stinger. Mainly to watch how both Nick Fury and Maria Hill act, which on the first viewing I thought something was off about them and their behavior. But it made a lot more sense as to why they were so cold. I did like the mid-credit stinger and the return of JK Simmons and framing Spider-Man as a villain.

Still love Mysterio a lot. The Berlin sequence really hit a nostalgia button going back to the sixties animated series when Spidey fought Mysterio on the regular. That was captured so well in the movie.

The awkwardness between MJ and Peter was charming. Felt genuine and relatable. Really good stuff. Zendaya is so great as that character.

What I didn’t care for: the teachers (Smoove and Starr) and the humor that didn’t work anytime they were involved. I didn’t really care much for anything with the students even the puppy love w/Ned and Betty. A lot of that took me back to HOMECOMING and I didn’t care for it then either. 

I’m glad this was the last movie in the current MCU. TBH I wouldn’t mind them taking a full year off as in no Marvel movies in 2020. Give us a rest and make us eager to want to see the next phase. As much as I want to see this MJ and Peter again in many more films I can wait. Actually I’d love to see the next phase in Peter’s life as a college student / photographer for the Daily Bugle. It would be cool if they started production but held off on releasing until at least 2021. Mainly to still film these young actors when they look young. I imagine Tom Holland won’t be looking like a teen much longer. He and Zendaya are 23yo now!
