Where Does Spider-Man: Homecoming Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Yesterday I wrote a review about Spider-Man: Homecoming and I absolutely loved the film but how does it stack up against the other Marvel films that have come before it? Well, this is what I’m going to find out and I hope you enjoy.

1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I loved Spider-Man: Homecoming, it was a pretty flawless movie. There’s something about The Winter Soldier, however, that really makes me happy. I watched this film four times in the movie theaters and now, three years after it came out, it still reigns supreme in terms of what Marvel can do. The storyline is simple yet complex, Robert Redford’s portrayal of Secretary Pierce was spot on, Bucky’s arc throughout the movie was one of the better plotlines in Marvel so far, and this was the first movie that Captain America really shined in.

Another reason why the movie was so good is its lack of heroes with super incredible abilities. Captain America, while he retains superhuman strength, speed, etc, he isn’t as powerful as someone like, say, Thor, or even Spider-Man for that matter. And then Black Widow is only a Shield agent, she’s not a superwoman, and that gives the movie a grit that most of the Marvel films don’t have. And Falcon is also a rather regular human besides the awesome exoskeleton. That’s why I love this movie. I’m waiting for the day to come for a Marvel film to finally dethrone this one but it still hasn’t happened yet.

2. Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming is undoubtedly the second best Marvel movie ever made. It’s funny, it’s original, and it’s simply a great film. The plot twists were shocking, the characters were fun and engaging, the storyline was impeccable, and it all led to Spider-Man officially becoming an Avenger, which is so exciting.

There are other great Marvel films like Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, the first Guardians of the Galaxy, but this movie was so cute and perfect that there was no way I wasn’t going to rank this as the second best Marvel movie made so far.

So, this is where I rank Spider-Man: Homecoming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I thank you for reading and I hope you have an absolutely beautiful day.

My Review of Spider-Man: Homecoming

I’ve just recently watched Spider-Man: Homecoming and this is what I have to say about it. This movie. Was. Amazing!!! Marvel really outdid themselves with this Spider-Man film. I had seen nearly every trailer, I had seen all of the tv spots and advertisements, but I never imagined that this movie would be as good as it was.

Spider-Man is a fan favorite, and for good reason. He’s a nerdy kid who obtained outstanding abilities from a radioactive spider and ended up becoming an incredible superhero who saves his hometown from all sorts of diabolical villains. Spider-Man is so famous that even way before I knew anything about the difference between Marvel and DC Comics I knew who Spider-Man was.

There used to be this DVD I would watch, it was a cartoon called The Amazing Spider-Man, and I would watch it all of the time. There was Dr. Octopus, my favorite Spider-Man villain, the Green Goblin, and a whole bunch of other sinister villains. I loved it. I didn’t, at that time, know any other superheroes except for Superman and Batman. And even though I wanted to watch the actual Spider-Man movies I never could because there was just way too much suck facing in those films.

And then Sony just recently made two new Spider-Man films starring Andrew Garfield as the wall-climbing superhero and they weren’t that great. I only saw the second one with Jamie Foxx as the villain and while I did like Spider-Man the rest of the movie was terrible.

Then in 2016 Marvel partnered with Sony and a new Spider-Man was born.

My Favorite Part of The Last Jedi Trailer

It’s the last day of the week and this has been a great week for Star Wars fans. The Last Jedi trailer debuted this Monday and I’m still losing my mind over it. There were so many fantastic shots in that trailer that it’s pretty much a perfect trailer, but there is one section of the trailer that happens to always make my heart thrum with excitement and I am here to talk about it. Enjoy!

What I loved the most about this trailer is that it happened to surprisingly showcase a lot of footage involving Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren is such an interesting, complex character and I love that this trailer showed that this next Star Wars film is going to continue evolving his story.

The Porgs Are Stealing Everybody’s Hearts in the New Last Jedi Trailer

I’m one of those Star Wars fans that doesn’t like Ewoks very much. Ewoks destroy my brain. They’re not cute. They’re just very annoying teddy bears with sticks and rocks. So when I heard that there would be these cute creatures called Porgs living on the planet, Ach-To, with Luke I was excited and skeptical. I’m totally cool with cute new creatures in Star Wars but the question was, would these Porgs be the new Ewoks.

When the behind-the-scenes clip debuted this July I got my first close up look at the Porgs and I was pleasantly surprised.

The Porg looked very, very adorable and I was confident that these new alien creatures wouldn’t be the bane of my existence like the Ewoks are. And so then Entertainment Weekly had a special spread on The Last Jedi back in August and it gave me another look at the Porgs.

There Are New Entries Into the Star Wars Databank!

On starwars.com there is a databank that has nearly every character, alien, planet, etc. from Star Wars in it. Think of it as a virtual encyclopedia. Well throughout the months, new entries have been added to the databank from The Last Jedi and after the new trailer was released a whole bunch of new things were added and I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

Resistance Bomber

So, these Resistance Bombers are cool because they drop proton bombs onto Star Destroyers, as long as they can get to them. That’s where the Starfighters come into play. They act as a defense against the First Order while the Resistance Bombers get into position. The new trailer has given a better look at the dogfight that’s going to happen above D’Qar and I can’t wait to see it in its full glory.

Survivor Underwhelms Yet Again

Last week’s episode of Survivor was pretty lackluster. It was totally predictable and not that exciting, at all. So I was hoping the third episode would be at least a little better. And for the most part, it was, slightly. It turns out Ashley and J.P on the Heroes tribe really would have ended up being a power couple if Alan hadn’t already nipped that in the bud. On the Healers tribe, the two lovebirds are getting closer by the second and because of that “Tarzan” told his new island girlfriend that Joe had the idol. Uh-oh. And the Hustlers were trying to recuperate after losing the last challenge. But besides that, there weren’t any juicy conversations or idol hunting. It was just a boring episode of Survivor that ended with the Hustlers losing yet again and the tribe had to decide whether they would stick with Patrick, the guy who literally lost them the immunity, or Lauren, who seems to always have a grumpy attitude. They decided, unsurprisingly, to get rid of Patrick and the episode was over.

Now I’m looking forward to next week because the three tribes will merge into two and that means new alliances will have to be made and maybe some old alliances will be broken. I’m excited to see what happens from the new twist and hopefully, it’ll liven up this season of Survivor at least a tad.

I thank you for reading my overview of this week’s episode of Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers and I hope you have a wonderful day.

 

My In-Depth Analysis of The Last Jedi Trailer: Part Two

Yesterday I wrote a post about The Last Jedi trailer and now after seeing it eleven times I’m getting, even more, revelations for the film. In my earlier post I talked about Kylo Ren, Rey, and Finn but today I’m going into a little more detail about Luke Skywalker, Snoke, and just exactly what this trailer might be telling us about this new movie. So, with no further delay, let me get to it.

On October 9th Star Wars fans, including me, lost their minds momentarily over the new trailer for The Last Jedi due to all of the impressive money shots and the shocking end. But after two days and allowing the trailer to soak in I can look at the trailer with a clear mind and there are so many diversions and possible clues this trailer is providing it’s incredible. So, let me start talking about the new revelations I’ve gotten from this trailer.
