I think he might have been my favorite part of No Way Home.  Loved every scene he was in and damn near teared up when he caught MJ.

/Semi related - Finally saw Eternals yesterday.  Definitely my least favorite MCU movie and possibly the only one that's outright bad.  2.5 hours, of which only the last half hour or so was any good.  Kingo was the only character with any charm  And charming characters is a big part of why I love Marvel movies.

Agreed, his "redemption" as spidey was nice to see.  I think he was more a victim of terrible writing than anything...granted, he's not a great actor, but the writing in his movies was utter shiat.

Both were good though

I think he's far and away the best actor of the three- he just got saddled with the worst scripts and was wayyyyy too old to be playing the character at the age they set him in. A different universe that started with him as a bitter, late-20s/early 30s Spider-Man ala Jake Johnson in Spider-verse would've been a much better way to go.

The second was was structured badly - I think I could have forgiven the writing (Paul Giamatti's dialogue was collected from Red Dawn sequel spec scripts that were too un-subtle even the 1980s), but that film was very obviously two or three films they decided for $ome rea$on to try and cram together without any regard for whether it makes any goddamn sense.

I liked the first, and the not-obviously-just-there-to-set-up-the-Sinister-Six parts of the second. But it's tough to get through.

How many of you talk to your ex-girlfriends about every job you take?

I kinda had hopes for Eternals, as the less I care about the source material generally the better I like it. Didn't work that way this time.

For some reason, I think I might like a sequel better.  Move them off Earth and their super powerdness might bother me less.

Also, Patton Oswalt as a troll.

My ex-wife and I get along extremely well. Marriage lasted 9 years (no kids) and we have remained extremely close friends since. There is a genuine care there, regardless of the fact that we know that our personal plans don't include the other.

That is awesome, but I would say is more likely the exception rather than the rule.  A wise man once said people break up for a reason.  Often that reason makes a break-up less than amicable.

I never saw the Amazing Spider Man movies, or any movies at all in that timespan.

But I feel the character's redemption catching MJ was in some ways a redemption for the actor himself, given a second chance with another screenwriter. I felt really happy for both of them.

Worse than Thor 2?

Yes.  Despite its faults at least Thor 2 picked a plot and stuck with it the entirety of the movie.  It didn't just give up on Plot A two thirds of the way through and introduce Plot B.

By far.  Thor 2 wasn't good.  Eternals was bad.  But even in a not good Thor 2, you've still got Hemsworth and Hiddleson being charismatic as fark.  Kumail Nanjiani gave a valiant effort trying to carry the load in Eternals, but it was too much for him. The movie lasted 2.5 hours and for the first 2 hours, I couldn't have cared less about what happened to anyone.  Had they shortened it to 90 minutes, it may have been decent.  I was fairly into it during the last 30 minutes or so.  But nobody should have to sit through 2 hours of garbage just to get 30 minutes of pretty good.

Quite right. I do appreciate the knowledge that we are certainly a bit of an exception.

I hope the people behind that shot are reading this thread, because i'm sure they'd be happy to know that what could easily be missed hit with the intended impact. Garfield's acting absolutely sold the entire thing in ways that words wouldn't have. Easy thing to miss if you didn't know that's what was going on.

Dude got dropped by Emma Stone, that right there tells me he's some sort of cretin. As for his Spidey movies? He was too old.

I think Hawkeye could have worked either way, but you're dead on about The Eternals. In fact, I think The Eternals could have made a very good series.

I'd say that redeeming The Amazing Spider-Man was part of the plan. Seriously. Him rescuing MJ and the reaction to that, the way Toby gave him a couple of pep talks (No, you're Amazing)
His interaction with Electro was excellent, too.


I see where the big rumor now is that since there's no Oscorp in the MCU, that it was Stark Industries that created the radioactive or genetically engineered spider that bite Tom Holland's Peter Parker. I also wonder if there's no Uncle Ben in the MCU.  Holland's Peter has never mentioned him and he didn't seem fazed when both of the other Peters referenced him.

Was waiting for one of the other Spideys to say 'THAT'S your Aunt May!! Holy $&@!'
