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.
