Your friendly neighborhood Binkley Review!

Spider-Man Homecoming is awesome! Go see it!
Pay extra for the 3D!

Pros: The Peter Parker sequences are actually better than the action set pieces!
Zendaya was great!
Michael Keaton was good, but so was Bokeem Woodbine! He is one of the
best evil henchmen in movies today!
Cons: It's a dark movie- and by that, I mean some scense were poorly lit! You
have two grey figures fighting against a black backdrop, in the dark! I
should have been able to see those action scenes better.

Well worth it though! Don't wait for the DVD! See this in a theater!

Saw it Saturday with the family. Terrific movie. Keaton is one of the greatest actors of all time. Great in this role. Saw it in 2D. Outstanding Spider-Man reboot. And there is a heckuva twist that cannot be mentioned.

I really dug it. I am so glad that they didn't just redo the origin story. Tom Holland played a perfect high school version of Peter parker.

Michael Keaton is always awesome and the Captain America PSA's were spectacular.

Spiderman has always been my favorite character so I was really happy with it overall. I will say that it seemed a bit forced how they changed the race of so many characters. My mexican buddy who saw the movie with me said the same thing. Spidermans costume also looked really fuzzy, like it was made out of cloth in the closeup shots but not when far away.

All that being said it was a really kickass movie.

That's one of the downsides to 3D movies. I've noticed that with the few that I've seen

I take your word for it, but one of my FB friends saw it in 2D, and had the same comment!

This was when I started cheesing like the Cheshire Cat! The movie won me over just by incorporating the old school Spider-Man theme in the opening credits!
