As you say.  I thought the movie got so much praise because of the experimental animation, artwork, vibrant supporting cast, and cohesive world-building.

You'll have a hard time convincing me that the movie would have been hype if it had been forced to rely on Mile's story of the power of believing in yourself mixed with a fun uncle vs. responsibly daddy plot.

I'm not trying to convince you of anything. I love that movie and all of its vibrant supporting cast, and my favorite character in it is Miles, hands down. That's my opinion and I'm sure many other people's too. You don't share it, that's fine, but don't blame the movie for something it's not at fault for.

Miles is not my favorite character, (that would be midlife crisis Peter Parker and maybe Spider-Pig) but i loved the bond between Peter and Miles their chemistry was just perfect. But like i said i'm just sick of the teenage Spider-Man with the same old "relatable" issues. Adult Peter is what really made like this movie and irks me that Sony still won't get past the high school years of Spider-Man

Aunt May in Raimi trilogy is a voice of reason and provide moral support to Peter. MCU Aunt May is just sex object and often used as joke for Happy and Tony.

Finally! i thought i was alone in this world!

For what it's worth, I was never a fan of "old as dirt" Aunt May as she's usually portrayed in the comics.  It's a trope from a long time ago when parents, for some reason, were always portrayed as very old when the truth is that having children is something people generally do while they're still at or near their physical peak.  Go ahead and take a look at a lot of films from before the 70s, parents of even very young children are portrayed as quite old.

Yeah, I know aunts can be a lot older.  I've got an one myself that's like 50 years older than my baby sister, but it's still an obnoxious trope that I'm glad is dying.  Young Aunt May's a lot more fun anyway.

So you prefer irresponsable, casual sex-loving and hotter than your crush aunt May, over old, wise, caring and experienced aunt May? Cause i sure don't.

Spider-Man is from the 60's different times different costums. People were expected to get a job, get married, have children and act like adults as soon as they turned adults.

Sure she's fun for having casual sex with random dudes she just met, embarassing Peter and not even caring if he's gonna get himself killed being Spider-Man and all.

We need a Spider man that doesn't change face every other movie. Same with all the other Super Heroes. It used to be that a super hero had a face (Like Superman with Christopher Reeve) Now they face-shift every other movie or so and it takes me out of the story.

What the hell is wrong with staying with Tobey Maguire? Did anyone say I'm done with Spidey if Tobey is still it? I'm done with Superman if Brandon Routh is still it?

And don't get too attached to Henry Cavill cause how long till he is also replaced?


It's a terrible practice but necessary evil i guess cause after the failure of Spider-Man 3 Sony just didn't know what to do with the franchise so they just rebooted it. Spider-Man 4 would've definitely saved the franchise had Sam Raimy been given the chance.

I honestly think you should just play Spider-Man PS4 or watch Spiderverse.

Already watched Spiderverse and I think it's fantastic and i loved adult Peter, still want a more mature Spider-Man live action movie though.

I think Spider-Man will be kept in the MCU for a while. If anything, we're most likely gonna get another Spider-Man trilogy which sees a more adult Peter Parker. If that doesn't happen, we have 2 excellent live action Spider-Man movies with Peter as an adult that we can always look back on.

Yeah, I was shocked at Homecoming. Embarassed really and no interest in far from home.

Far From Home is an improvement but that's not saying much in terms of the characters and overall plot, you might really like into the Spider-Verse though.

If you're still not tired of the same discussion going nowhere for the 500th time, then make a thread about it in the politics section. Don't sneak this into the entertainment sections.

My God, if you're tired of reading peoples criticism, the very same political bull they don't like in movies then ignore it or just don't respond. It's really that easy and it's not as if your complaint is going to change my views about it.

Like I said, the problem isn't criticism. It's a non-constructive political discussion going nowhere, again and again, in the entertainment section.
If it was based on something tangible, such as a statement from the writer, then it's different. Then it could at least make for a constructive discussion.

And I didn't ask you to change your views, but to not put a nonconstructive political debate into the entertainment section.
You can do it in the politics section. Someone who doesn't like political bull in their entertainment should understand the sentiment.
