Did you watch Homecoming?

I stopped watching after the 12th reboot within 3 years.

Haha... Wow, indeed. Poor Tom Hardy. Venom is getting ruthlessly panned. Maybe... Some of my take away from these tweets is that it might be Deadpool-esque.

Have you heard the Russian bot Lady Gaga rumor? That Lady Gaga fans are spamming Tiwtter with bad reviews so people will see A Star is Born instead of Venom? We live in a weird world.

In other news, this looks like fun:

Man, that Spider Verse movie might be one of the best superhero movies ever made. I wasn't expecting that. At all.

Everyone is raving about it. Guess I'll have to put it on the rotation...

My initial thought was that after Into the Spider-Verse, this falls a little flat by going back to the Marvel status quo of bloat. But on second viewing, I think the "school trip to Europe so I can't be Spider-Man" angle is kind of clever... though have we not learned from villain bloat here?

Yeah. Marvel should try the Doctor Who method and take a year or two off.

How many fucking Spider-Man movies do we need?
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

It's actually a little alarming when you factor in all the cancelled films:

This has to be the most schizophrenic Marvel property. It's like a team of monkeys has been trying to get it right since the mid-70s (which, by the way, remain my favorite installments in the franchise...)

I like the 70s live action films as well, but that's almost certainly nostalgia at work.

Tom Holland is fine but the whole well is soured by all the reboots.

We only needed Emma Stone.
