Apparently there was a sign saying "Korean Church of Asgard" in the background of a scene.  If anyone were to make a weird cult centering around Asgard, it would be Koreans.  Lots of weird cults with those people for some reason.

When you think about it, a church based around an actual dude who controls the weather and beats up sentient kill bots makes more sense than most religions.

This movie pulled off something that Marvel has never real done in my opinion: it was FUN. Capital fucking F, FUN. Excellent movie. This movie actually made me do more than courtesy laugh, and the only other time I've done that with a superhero movie (and even a lot of straight up comedies) was the "I know him from work" part of the Thor trailer.

Logan is still easily my favorite superhero movie, but HOLY SHIT this movie was everything a Spider-Man movie should be.

I actually like Zendaya as the MJ character, but fuck my ass that reveal was the most forced thing in the fucking world. Like someone else said, it was EXACTLY the MCU version of that horrible Robin reveal.

And god, you guys. They made me like the Vulture. THE VULTURE, you guys.


This was amaZing.

I thought it was pleasant to have a straight up fun, cherry film without any death

I can't help but wonder if the suit with too-many-options was sort of a parody of the Arkham games.

...except for the Shocker... which to be fair I completely forgot about by the end of the movie and thought it was death free as well

I feel like people getting completely obliterated happens a lot in the Marvel movies but off the top of my I remember only the first Shocker and the dude Yellowjacket killed. Did anyone else get killed like that in the MCU?

Red Skull killed a bunch of Nazis. Frost giants got killed by the Destroyer.

So I finally saw this because I'm an idiot and I was surprised how really fucking good it was

The Good
- Tom Holland - Just really good.
- Casting in general - Stuff like Hannibal Buress as the gym teacher were little touches that made a big difference. Having Keaton was also great given his Batman/Birdman pedigree.
- The MCU - This was a huge plus. The leftover villain/alien tech angle meant that you didnt have to waste time/suspend disbelief by introducing some new magical/sci-fi concept. Ina  weird way it made the film feel more grounded even though its obviously not the real world or trying to be.
- New Stuff - From having Spidey running around with a suit with all kinds of powers to not having Flash as a physically overpowering bully/jock helped to make this feel like less of a retread of previous films.

The Bad
- The Final Vulture/Spidey confrontation - This felt a bit tired/going through the motions - partly because it called to mind the Harry/Norman stuff from the Raimi films.
- ...cant really think of much else. Maybe the mid-credits scene in prison - was a bit meh. Donald Glover could have been given more to do also I guess.

Other
- Best post credits scene since the first Iron Man.
- Been said before but having the mask emote with the eyes is a stroke of genius in terms of not having the main character tear it off every 5 minutes a la the Raimi films.

Have never been a big fan of any of the Spiderman films or the character in general really but this was much more fun than i was expecting even though i had seen all the good reviews.
