Spider-Man: Homecoming

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine–distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man–but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Scott’s Take

I LOVED this version of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Tom Holland is absolutely fantastic as the angst ridden web slinger. Go see it ASAP.

Steve’s Take

Spider-Man Homecoming is absolutely going to be in consideration for the top spot on my year-end Top 10 list. It is that damn good. Tom Holland feels like the best of the Peter Parker’s that we have seen over the years. He just feels more authentic. To those of you that thought there would be too much involvement from Iron Man, you have a surprise coming to ya. Oh and Michael Keaton plays such a good villain. I will be seeing this one again just as soon as I can! Then I will see it again – it is that good! Go see it NOW! My final word on this one is 5 out of 5 stars.

The Big Sick

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, THE BIG SICK tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart. THE BIG SICK is directed by Michael Showalter (HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS) and producer by Judd Apatow (TRAINWRECK, THIS IS 40) and Barry Mendel (TRAINWRECK, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS).

Scott’s Take

This is a movie I can’t wait to see. I heard it is absolutely fantastic.

Steve’s Take

I am with Scott on this one. I have heard nothing but great things and can’t wait to see it.
