Spiderman: Homecoming

This one, along with Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 2” (my grade: A) are the best Marvel has offered save for the pair of “Guardians of the Galaxy” entries in crafting compelling and intriguing tales that work as stand-alone tales.

Tom Holland marked his first turn as web slinger Peter Parker in last year’s amazing and fun ride that was “Captain America: Civil War.” With his latest starring role in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Holland has taken the reigns from predecessors and made it all his own.

Sure, he has inexperienced when it comes to the ladies in his life, but Peter still has a shy streak that many viewers will find endearing.

The villain here is Michael Keaton’s construction foreman Adian Toomes who was aiding Robert Downey Jr.s Tony Stark in cleaning up the mess that was made in the battle many a year ago.

Toomes has an alter ego named The Vulture, who brings terror to various individuals in the city. He has a normal everyday life that finds routine and stability to his humdrum life.

Iron Man only appears in this movie when it is only absolutely necessary. Downey Jr. has said recently he only wanted to appear in the Marvel movies when it is absolutely required. Downey Jr. does not want to overstay his welcome into the character and identity that is Tony Stark, but when filmmakers keep making solid stories and franchises that work, his stay is more than welcome in my book.

Marisa Tomei also returns as Aunt May, a character most recently played by Sally Field in the Andrew Garfield entries.

I have no complaints, since it was on my ten best list of last year. I do not normally like to put comic book adaptations in my top ten, but when they make the movies right, who am I to judge?

Grade: A-
