    spider2001's movie review was featured in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
    Ufykdd34mqsve4zyznkmvaiyz8qSpider-Man Homecoming is somewhat different when compared to the other Spider-Man films. For example, they finally took Peter back to his early days of High school. In the previous film adaptions of Spider-Man, Peter was either a junior or senior in High school, and graduates too soon. So I think that it was a good idea to make him a Sophomore instead. In the past, Spider-Man movies have attempted to include more than one villain, therefore resulting in what seems to be somewhat of a confusing plot. However, with this film, they are able to balance a total of about 5 villains perfectly. Now granted, the vulture is the main villain here, but the side villains, such as the Shocker and the Tinkerer, add to the story and make it more interesting to watch. The supporting cast of this film was also great. Peter was a relatable teenager, going through the same high school life as most teenagers these day, myself included. However, while I did enjoy this movie quite a lot, Peter did seem to act a lot younger than a typical high school sophomore would act. That being said, that was probably my own issue with this movie. It is not my favorite Spider-Man film, that title would have to go to 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man." However, I did very much enjoy this film and am looking forward to where they take this universe next.

    spider2001 liked a comment in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
    Ejrlh2g9ugad7r6mqaoqiis329hI was disappointed, I have to say, I really was. As a big fan of super hero movies, I was looking forward to this one for a long time. All the trailers looked really good. I really enjoyed the previous installment, "Man of Steel," so I really was looking forward to this film. However, when I finally did watch it, I was not impressed. First of all, It had more of a dark tone and sense to the movie. Now, this works for some superhero movies, such as The Dark Knight Trilogy, but for this one, it did not. Second of all, it completely changed Batman. Now, some people do like Ben Affleck's portrayal as the Dark Knight, however, I did not. In the previous Batman movies, Batman had a sense of sensibility, where in this movie, Batman just seemed like a man bent on revenge. Everyone loved those old Batman films, and I understand that they didn't want people to mistake this DC Extended Universe Batman with the old one, but that doesn't mean that you have to turn him into a evil vigilante who brands his enemies. Third of all, the battle. The title, "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" sounds like it will be just about the fight between Batman and Superman, and the coming of the Justice League. But it really wasn't. For example, in the film, Superman was being blamed for the city's destruction and everyone hated him. So, Batman takes it upon himself to bring an end to him. Also, I thought Wonder Woman was cool and all, however I kind of felt that she wasn't really an essential part of the movie and that they just stuck her in there to introduce her for next years "Wonder Woman" movie. However, I did enjoy the final battle against Doomsday, I'd have to say that that was my favorite part. Overall, I wasn't thrilled about this film. I felt that it could have been A LOT better. As a fan of the Marvel films, I understand that this is DC and that they just started out their extended universe, but still. I think this was a drop down since "Man of Steel," which I have to say, I really enjoyed. I'm really hoping that they can make the Justice League movies better than this one.

    spider2001's movie review was featured in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
    Zrel3njn7pbduqpq935lcbmzb83Compared to "The Amazing Spider-Man" this film felt like a let down. I personally loved the first installment, and it is still my favorite Spider-Man movie to date. So of course, I was very excited to see this movie. However, quite honestly, I came out of this movie back in 2014 a bit disappointed. The first movie balanced all it's characters really well, and I was interested in pretty much everything going on. With this one, I honestly felt that they were too worried about setting up a bigger universe that they forgot to make a really good movie. Now, don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this movie, and I do own it, but compared to the first one, it just felt like it took a step down in quality. Also, I cannot stand it when movies set up for a sequel and leave you on a HUGE cliffhanger, and then for whatever reason another movie isn't made. It drives me crazy. That's exactly what happened here. While the Amazing Spider-Man 2 did okay in the Box Office world wide, Sony decided, for various different reasons, to discontinue the series and add a different version to Spider-Man to the MCU. While I am perfectly fine with Tom Holland's new Spider- Man, I would've liked to see where this universe could go. And I did not think it was fare to end this series with this movie. Overall, I didn't hate this movie. I very much enjoyed the fight sequences, especially the one with Electro in Times Square. But honestly, the movie was lacking something that the first one did so well. So in the long run, I did not like this one as well as the first one.

    9he9xinmefjnczndlkwd7opfaox"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" was an alright film. I did not enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the Harry Potter films, but it did a good job setting up the world that Mr. Potter eventually finds himself in. This is the story of Newt Scamander, who owns a very strange case, full of magical and mystical monsters. This movie is well acted, and the music is fantastic. However, for me where this movie lost itself was it's pacing. I felt that certain parts lagged on more than others. I wasn't quite sure of what was going on until half way through the movie. However, that's where it changes. The film definitely picks itself up towards the middle, and doesn't let go till the end. You finally start to understand the film's premise, and why it is taking place. Overall, fantastic Beasts is a pretty fun ride, but it does take a while for it to get there. So if you haven't already, I suggest that you check it out.
