We now have another rendition of Spiderman. While the others were fine, we can always take some time to check out a new version of the story. This time, he’s supposed to be fifteen years old. Yet, he’s figuring out the acrobatics and the fighting thing, well… just fine.
It is an entertaining film. This time, he owes a lot to Iron Man and his technology. While it is a nice roller coaster fun ride, I did something different. About three days after watching the film, I asked myself, “Do you like it?” And the answer was, “Eh.” Sure, there was plenty of snark, and quirk, but little lasting spark.
Maybe if I watch the Sony Pictures trailer, it will remind me of some beauty that I forgot. Maybe it will help this hero flick to actually leave a mark.
Here’s the deal. I am losing my interest for animated real scenarios. A swinging man-spider is a man on a string, but a drawing of one, is just a drawing. I need my cartoons to be more goofy… like Goofy.
So, I haven’t turned on Spidey. Maybe I was never that much of a fan. But super heroes are starting to jump my shark. Summer movies, this year, must have been eaten by the shark. After watching the previews for “Thor (with a last name)” which is coming soon, there is no way you will get me to see that, even if you sneak me in just past dark.
Oh well, we will always have Dunkirk.
