There really weren't any characters in this latest iteration that had a personality aside from Ned, Pete, and Toombs. Everything else felt like some old man's version of how kids talk.

Keaton was the golden ticket that held what worked together, everything else tried its damnedest to just undermine what was entertaining or interesting.

I was more interested in their dynamic than anything else they crammed in there.

The spectacle in these sorts of movies has gotten so removed from any notion of the physical plane of reality that it has become mind-numbing as a result. I couldn't help but check out each time virtual Tom Holland was flipping around, shitting strings at other computerized forms.

Tony Stark was a lame avenue to push Pete's father problem into and ended up taking away from Toombs and his burgeoning relationship with Pete as WOKE CRIMINAL MASTERMIND DAD. Honestly, that scene in the car deserved to be stretched to encompass much more of the film's conflict than what we got and it gives me the red ass. Instead we got half-assed jokes from Martin Starr and a trip to D.C.

More Keaton, less Benis Barker. Maybe they'll find a balance with the next one? I just didn't get the affection heaped on this attempt.

I'm in. Digging the cool use of the shrinking powers during the chase scenes.

I thought the first one was a pleasant surprise so I'm on board for this. I'm very happy Michael Pena is back.

That teaser showed way too much.

But I do like that Mikedoug gets more time in the show.

Black Panther: if you never read one of his books in the last 50 years, this must seem amazing. If you have read his stuff, then itís literally the only movie they couldíve made. If this film was any safer, it would be the first X-Men movie.

Amazing visuals with a very average plot. Far less jokey than most MCU entries.

It plays like someone downgraded the Hudlin run, while trying to make an Afrofuturist utopia make sense in the MCU.

That being said, the praise for the film seems to be more about sticking it to detractors rather than this movie working. There are great elements in this film. It just bungles the execution so much.

Exactly. The difference being is that Coogler did enough legwork that whomever handles the sequel will knock it out of the park.

I'm still pumped to see this. It just looks like it will be neat to look at at the very least,
