    This is not an opinion. This is all fact. Well said, indeed.

    Costume was a killer indeed. Snapped Gwen's neck right in two.

    Spider-Man's humor is an important part of the character but it isn't just about the wisecracks I agree. It also depends on how it is implemented. In ASM2 for example he decides to crack jokes instead of stopping Aleksei and we end up with people put in danger which is the opposite of what Spider-Man is about.

    While Homecoming did a better job of this imo he came across too naive and it didn't work for me as much as I would have liked.

    Homecoming has provided a good base of the duality to build on and I hope things improve with FFH. Still, imo, as far as media adaptations go, TSSM is the gold standard.

    I see they're men of culture. My top 5 as of right now is both GOTG's, Ragnarok, Endgame and either Homecoming or the original Avengers. Far From Home has a massive shot at landing a place in it, though. Mysterio is the Spidey villain I've been wanting to see in a movie the most and I think Jake is perfectly cast as him, Spidey has always been my favorite hero and the reactions point towards top MCU. So yeah, the hype is real for me. LOL

    I'm not. They were okay and people mostly love them because it ended tragic for them. But there wasn't much romance in the first avenger. At least for Tony/Pepper, we saw their whole journey together. I glad we're going to get some romance in Far From Home.

    Well considering Venom is a somewhat sub-par villain/product of the late, late 80's & 90's I had zero problem with Hardy's version. Seriously, the character has stayed alive throughout the years because of his cool and monstrous look and being the yang to Spider-Man's Yin basically. Other than that he's not deep or compelling. Mainly hype and visuals.

    Hardy's fun and humorous performance elevated that movie from being quite bad. Not really bad but for the most part it was heavily generic and felt like it belonged in the 90's as far sci-fi/fantasy films go.

    I understand if you felt the character could have been done better, all I'm saying is I never felt the character was as great and amazing as a large percentage of fans do. I grew up reading comics in the 90's too and even I don't have any type of nostalgia towards Venom.

    Oh, his original inception in the comics was pretty lame. He only continued because his design was really cool and he was intimidating.

    However, subsequent cartoons significantly improved upon him to the point that there was no excuse for the wasted potential. TSSM version of Eddie/Venom is a great character, one I would love to see in live action some day.

    And to me, yeah Hardy was kinda funny, but I’d put that film in Ghost Rider territory. Horrid story, with some laughs. Many unintentional.

    Considering they always deliver after the praise, joke is not the right word. "Reassuring" is the word I'd use.

    The 90s series is what I grew up on and made me fall in love with the character. Nothing will ever top that show. In the future when I have kids I’ll be showing them that show over and over again.

    I grew up with that one too, and I love it as well, but TSSM took it’s place for me. And nothing against the 90s toon, SSM was just that good. It was on par to be the next BTAS if it hadn’t been cancelled early :(

    No it's a joke. People were trying to predict exactly what the reviewers would say because they always say the same things, no matter the quality of the movie.

    It's become a joke and it's funny and you'll have to deal with it.

    The actual quality of the movies are always regarded as fairly consistent regardless of that chip on your shoulder.

    Except I don't think Captain Marvel is a bad movie. Marvel Studios have never made a bad movie. Even the ones I dislike are not bad. This isn't about the quality of the movies, it's about how predictably hyperbolic early reactions for every MCU movie are.

    People are allowed to make fun of Marvel Studios. Deal with it.

    Then why’d you say “regardless of quality”?

    People act like hyperbolic early buzz is unique to Marvel lol.

    Deal with your weirdly aggressive tone?

    You're right, every MCU movie is of the same quality.

    You're right, I apologize for starting this argument.

    Oh wait a minute, I did not. I merely made an observation about movie pundits, and someone felt the urge to remind me just how much everyone loves Marvel Studios, for some reason.

    Dude was a returning PBU, so he was banned again. I am not sure if posts were legit, but in future guys remember, this is a tag your spoilers zone in this thread.

    Dude. That Mysterio theme. Exceeded my expectations. If the section I think is right.
    It's triumphantly and theatrically villainous and deceiving, with some tech-y colors. I love it.
