Saw Spider-Man this morning and I couldn't stop smiling the entire time. Easily my favorite Marvel movie and one of my favorite CBMs ever.

I was really excited for this when they announced that it was going to be a John Hughes inspired movie but I hated all of those awful trailers and Iron Man's inclusion had me worried but he's not a big part of the film. It might be the funniest MCU film too. Keaton was awesome as Vulture. I loved how they got a bunch of famous child actors to play Peter's classmates in the movie like the boy from Beast of No Nation and the little girl from the Nice Guys. I don't want to spoil anything so Ill stop there, all around awesome movie.

I think when it comes to the MCU, this is easily my favorite of the solo films. It doesn't quite achieve the greatness of Spider-man 2 or The Dark Knight, but it is clearly the most fun, hilarious, and best acted of the solo MCU films

It was really great!
Imo, surpasses every version of Spidey and now sits on the top of my favorite comic book movie list (I loved Ledger's Joker, but hated Bale's Batman.)

1. Avengers
2. Civil War
3. Guardians
4. Winter Soldier
5. Guardians 2

Looks like I'm going to have to see this one. In terms of my favorite comics of all-time, t was always the following in some order.

- Batman
- Spider-Man
- Wolverine
- Superman

Hopefully they did this one as much justice as it sounds.

They made quite a few changes that some "purists" might not like, but they didn't bother me at all.
Imo, Holland IS Peter Parker. I really was smiling for two hours!

Interesting. I truly felt Tobey was PP in the first one.

I'm horrible because I thought SM:H was just ok. Like I enjoyed it but it wasn't as great as other Marvel movies to me.

I thought it was the movie it needed to be. It's not in my top 5 Marvel films and it didn't reshape the universe, but the universe already exists even though Spiderman is basically the most famous character from it. If they tried to make it too big, they wouldn't have done justice to either the character or the universe. Basically they needed to tell a good tale with the kid and they told a good tale about him being a kid.

I cannot disagree with those who would put it solidly in their top 5, because it was a solid film from a perspective we haven't seen much from Marvel, so if you really liked the high school setting then no complaints. I think there's plenty of room for people to have random ones from this series that they like that others don't - I'm much more a fan of Thor 2 than almost anyone I've run into (thought it was an excellent sci-fi flick).

I think now they've got a strong movie with him, they've got the kid where he needs to be before Avengers34, and he's taking the lead in opening phase 4 which should make for a much more epic, big picture film.

I think I put this one just outside my top 5, but in a muddle with like 4 other pictures in that range.

Oh, and the other thing I forgot to add - I liked that it seemed like they were extremely respectful of the comic book history. I don't know nearly all of it, but seeing people who do know the series gawking at some of the details or characters they included makes me feel quite good about how they handled this character.

Zendaya becoming MJ seems out of place to me but I never read comics.
