SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING – What the critics are saying about it!

spiderman homecoming93% of critics give the film a positive review.

Critics Consensus: Spider-Man: Homecoming does whatever a second reboot can, delivering a colorful, fun adventure that fits snugly in the sprawling MCU without getting bogged down in franchise-building.

 

 

This third time’s the charm in Marvel’s pantheon of Spider-Man portrayers. Tobey Maguire was pretty good, Andrew Garfield was so-so, but Holland … Well, when you’ve got it, you’ve got it.

A comprehensively crowd-pleasing success.

For a film with six screenwriters, Homecoming creates a remarkably coherent vision of a smart kid still dumb about the world, battling the learning curves of his double lives.

As long as the kids stay in the picture — thankfully, that’s most of the movie — Spider-Man: Homecoming is the fun playdate most of us have been looking forward to since the character stole Cap’s shield last spring in Captain America: Civil War.

It’s a relief to see a superhero engaged in deeply human activities, like getting ready for a date… This Spider-Man is still just a kid, after all, and he has no energy for existential angst — just dealing with hormones is enough.

A welcome narrowing of the Marvel mega-verse away from alien invasions and globe-smashing supervillains and back towards something more intimate.

TRANSFORMERS: The Last Knight – Here’s what the critics say about it.

transformers the last knight16% of critics have this movie a favorable review.

Critics Consensus: Cacophonous, thinly plotted, and boasting state-of-the-art special effects, The Last Knight is pretty much what you’d expect from the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise.

 

 

 

A movie that’s cut like the world’s longest and most tedious trailer, pinballing from scene to scene and rarely spending more than a few seconds on any single shot.

I am not going to try to explain the story- after watching this movie I may never try to explain another story ever again.

All the best moments in the movie-pure images, devoid of symbol and, for that matter, nearly empty of sense-go by too fast, are held too briefly, are developed too little.

Distilled to its essence, The Last Knight is an orgy of incoherence, a sensory assault that suffocates the viewer in a cavalcade of special effects incontinence.

June 21, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Every time Michael Bay directs another Transformers abomination (this is the fifth), the movies die a little. This one makes the summer’s other blockbuster misfires look like masterpieces.

A movie that is at once loud yet incoherent, complex yet idiotic, and expensive yet worthless.
