NFT: Spiderman Homecoming has 92% on RT

spike : 7/5/2017 2:57 pm
It comes out this weekend and I cant wait! We havent had a decent spiderman film since spiderman 2. The Emma stone films were underwhelming.

Anyone else plan on seeing it this weekend?

Going Friday

Been looking forward to it. Happy I was able to get a regular showing and not have to see it in 3D.
I'll never trust a Rotten Tomatoes

percentage after it comes at night got 87%

Maybe the worst movie I've ever seen. Still have no idea what the fuck that garbage was. And no idea how it got 87% on RT

It's funny that people have no idea what a Rotten Tomatoes rating means. It's a simple poll of all the RT certified critics reviews of a movie. Up or down. Good or bad.

87% fresh on RT means that 13% didn't like it. If you didn't like it, you agree with the 13% that didn't.

that's just you not liking a movie (which is fine). And that's the whole point of RT. My suggestion is to read the reviews of people you like rather than rely on a score.

Saving 8 bucks a ticket by going at 10am. Looking forward to it, trying not to get too hyped.
It makes no sense  
Giantophile : 7/5/2017 4:19 pm : link
to me why people use rotten tomatoes which is a binary "like" or "didn't like" system when Metacritic takes every review, weighs them on a scale from 1-100 and then averages the score. Such a superior system.

It's a 78 on metacritic so you adjust your own expectations accordingly. RT is a fine barometer when you understand that it's "like or not like" as opposed to a grading system which has its own flaws too. Both sites are helpful within the context of their grading system.

I encourage everyone to read the actual reviews rather than just look at a score if they really want insight on how a movie is perceived.

In regards to "It Comes at Night" I've heard good things and definitely plan on seeing it. I'll pass on Spider-Man until it hits blu ray.
I can't stand the Spider-Man franchise  
Steve L : 7/5/2017 10:05 pm : link
Worst of the Marvel movies to me. I find it boring and the hero himself more of a pussy than super hero.

That being said, I want to see this one. I think they may have finally gotten it right. Using Iron Man makes it cooler and the special effects look way better than before.
why the fuck is tony stark in a spider man franchise reboot?

garbage.
Going on Friday

How could you not like Spidey? He's the King of the Marvel Universe. I have no doubt that they will do the right thing and set Spiderman up to headline Marvel Phase 3. Things are going to change after Infinity Wars and Avengers 4. Good chance some of the originals hang it up and/or their characters die. Downey, Evans, Ruffalo, Johannson, Renner, etc. might not be back or will scale back to cameos. Next phase will focus on Spiderman, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, and maybe a new Cap. Lots of stories to tell and then Marvel can unveil there ideas for Phase 4...or maybe Phase Fantastic Four? Doom!

Like him or not, RDJ as Iron Man sells tickets. Marvel fought tooth and nail to get a chance to do this movie, so they want it to succeed.

Their is more creativity now than ever before. These superhero movies are made frequently in order to keep the licensing and they are cash cows. This has nothing to do with all the good stuff that comes out that doesn't get $200 million budgets.

Seriously. Three reboots since 2002. It's getting absurd. And each spider man is a bigger mangina then the previous. And that's saying a lot when you lead that group with Toby Macguire.

And it's the same rehashed garbage carried across films.

They couldn't even get a trilogy out of the last reboot. Not really sure what the vision was there.

Spidey is my favorite hero and I'm pumped for this. Marvel has never made a Spider-man movie, so I'm expecting good things with their involvement.
Not a rehash

As far as I know...no origin story...no Uncle Ben. Story supposedly picks up right after Civil War. Should be fun.

Torrag : 7/6/2017 3:17 pm : link
duh...obviously. What has that got to do with it being garbage? If they wrote and produced a good enough film the Webhead can fill a theatre without BS gimmicks that have no validity in the main characters storyline.
Wait...they are rebooting Spiderman AGAIN?!?

You guys know its a different studio this time right?  
Pete in 'Vliet : 7/6/2017 3:44 pm : link
Sony pictures produced the first 3. They needed to keep making movies every few years, to retain the rights. Once talks with Sam Raimi, over new sequels, fell through, they felt it better to just let a new director take over and make it his own - which meant reboot and new cast.

Now Sony has made a deal with Marvel and Disney - because why wouldn't they at this point? This is not another reboot, but a way to integrate spiderman into the MCU. Sony gets to keep the rights to the Spiderman franchise, while Marvel get Spidey in 3 stand-alone and 4 other movies (including Civil War).

Don't be surprised if Fox tries the same deal with the Fantastic Four and X-Men franchises - which means we will get to have yet more threads complaining about "hollywood" going for a third reboot instead of new ideas.
I'm as suspicious of reboots and remakes as the next guy  
j_rud : 7/6/2017 4:00 pm : link
but if there is one genre that's really suited to it, it's comic book movies. These characters are killed off, red-conned, re-imagined, and rebooted all the time. Marvel and DC have reboot d their entire universes. Maybe it's because I've been a comic fan my entire life, but these reboots really don't bother me. I mean, call me crazy here, but you can always decide to, like, not pay to see it.

What do you mean it has no validity? Did you not see Civil War?

Movies and comics are separate universes per Marvel.
Also, it's not really a reboot.

He's already spider-man. Homecoming is picking up after his Avengers appearance.

This here^^^

The reason Marvel/Disney has finally succeeded with blockbuster comic films is mainly because they have mimicked what the comic books did to become successful in the first place:

-Have everyone in the same universe
-Have team-ups and multiple crossovers
-Have character driven stories


And of course special effects catching up doesn't hurt.

Can anyone think of another time in film history that 4 different films about 4 different characters all preceded another film that combined all 4 of those characters together?

And now the sequels to those films involve team-ups and crossovers with other characters?

Not only that, but there are multiple tv shows that also tie in with the films.

It's actually pretty amazing when you think about it.

Of course, it's how comics have been doing things for a long, long time.

I really enjoyed Get Out. My only gripe was that I wish he went with his original ending which I won't spoil on here.

Can't argue someone not liking a movie, but Get Out is the perfect example of how Hollywood isn't just all remakes. There are tons of great projects out there.
I saw Spider-Man Homecoming last night  
jvm52106 : 7/7/2017 1:43 pm : link
and thought it was a pretty darn good movie. Finally a movie about a teenaged Superhero that doesn't just assume new powers means a change in age appropriate behaviors and responses. From being a show off to shy, confident / overconfident to insecure and self doubting, strong but afraid... They covered all the ranges of emotions and attitudes a teenager might have in his place.

I really enjoyed the movie. Stark is the mentor but not in scene after scene so he is more a father figure tie in to Avengers than co-star here.

Great job with the character I thought.
Saw it today - 2 thumbs up!  
GiantJake : 7/8/2017 3:24 am : link
Marvel just gets it right and Tom Holland is spot on. Good combination of laughs, action and coming of age story. Peter Parker isn't a billionaire or a Demi-God or a super soldier. He's a geeky kid dealing with life in high school, super powers, a new suit and trying to prove that he's ready to be an Avenger. The young cast is great, Downey, Favreau and other cameos provide a connection to the larger MCU and Michael Keaton is a formidable foe. It all works because Marvel doesn't get ahead of itself. There's an Infinity War coming and Peter Parker will play a role, but first he needs to learn to be a friendly neighborhood Spiderman.
Way too much butt hurt on here  
RobCarpenter : 7/8/2017 5:55 am : link
Saw it last night, really enjoyed it. Thought the story was tight and Michael Keaton made the vulture much more interesting than he is in the comic books.

Didn't quite get the Zendaya character though.
Saw it with my Daughter last night  
ZogZerg : 7/9/2017 8:14 am : link
Surprisingly, it was an Very Entertaining! I would highly recommend it to folks. To me, it was the best Spiderman movie made.
I also saw it and enjoyed it  
Bill L : 7/9/2017 9:03 am : link
It was campier than the other ones in the series but I thought it fit the comic books better than any of the other movies with the exception of the supporting characters. There's been lots of stories about this version of Aunt May but I'll never complain about seeing Marisa Tomei on screen (but jeez I know I'm getting old because she's starting to look aged). I really liked the Keaton character.



[Spoiler]


Not really a spoiler but I was amused at how Marvel punked the audience at the very end.
The one complaint I have  
Bill L : 7/9/2017 9:04 am : link
Which I've had before is that I just don't care much for the Favreau character. He's like three steps beyond the Peter Principle, and I know that's by intention, but it's still too incongruous for me.
I thought it  
Rick5 : 7/9/2017 6:17 pm : link
