    Mighty Marvel Geeks 173: Your Friendly Neighborhood Marvel Geeks

    Mighty Marvel Geeks 173: Your Friendly Neighborhood Marvel Geeks

    Your Intrepid Trio has returned with another broadcast filled with more Marvel news for your ears! The show begins with a heartfelt memorial to Joan Lee, Stan Lee’s wife headed up by Eric. Kylan then follows with a late breaking story about an injured Jeremy Renner. Will it affect Avengers: Infinity War? Mike follows up with a piece about what three MCU movies must you see before seeing Spider-Man: Homecoming. The article creates an interesting discussion for the team. Do you agree? Mike then segues into an article about a scene that was in the trailer, but not in the movie and why. This, too, spills over into the prevalence of trailers and geek culture’s obsession with them. Kylan follows with a story about the five movie story arc for Peter Parker. Pete has quite a road ahead of him, it seems. Mike finishes the movie news with an article about the future for Blade in the MCU. Eric then finishes the news segment with a piece about Captain America being called out by another comic company. Fall is going to be kinda hot, it seems! The guys then take it to the comic shop for their P.O.W.(Picks Of the Week) and Kylan has the Marvel Unlimited POW.

                                  Spider-Man: Homecoming Non-Spoiler Review!

                                  Spider-Man: Homecoming Non-Spoiler Review!

                                  Written by Jason Brigger

                                  Director: Jon Watts

                                  Writers: Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley

                                  Starring: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., and Marisa Tomei

                                  After a Spider-Man trilogy that hasn’t aged well in light of the newer superhero films, and after a failed reboot by Sony that included two lackluster films (to put it gently), Sony has teamed up with Marvel to make the Spider-Man film that fans have been wanting for decades.

                                  This time, Tom Holland takes up the web as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, a teenager trying to juggle his life as a teenager and as the newest New York superhero.  Parker wants nothing more than to be the next member of the Avengers and under the watchful eye of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), he’s well on his way to the being the best friendly neighborhood Spider-Man until Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) sets New York in his sight.

                                  After losing his salvage company’s contract cleaning up disaster areas to Stark’s new company, Damage Control, Toomes decides to use alien technology as weapons to sell to the criminal element of New York City.  Spider-Man, after waiting patiently to be Stark’s new protégé, decides to take matters into his own hands and stop Toomes/Vulture on his own, much to Stark’s protest.

                                  The Good:

                                  No Uncle Ben backstory.  After five previous films, the general audience understands why Parker does what he does and finally the writers realize not to waste time rehashing a story that has been told too many times. Thank you, Mr. Goldstein and Mr. Daley.

                                  -Super-villain cameos.  I won’t spoil the surprises but Spider-Man actually fights numerous villains from the comic books and not just nameless thugs.  Fans of the comics will enjoy seeing some lesser known villains get the film treatment and while they may not be more than just filler for Spider-Man to wrestle with, the audience gets to see some fresh faces.

                                  -New York City.  Jon Watts directs a film that, much like the comic books, makes New York City a living, breathing character as much as Spider-Man.  Watts makes New York City feel alive with real people and not just stock caricatures that the previous films accomplished.  When Spider-Man swings past buildings, it feels like he knows every nook in the city and actually loves and wants to protect New York.

                                  -Tom Holland. Tobey Maguire helped make the cinematic Spider-Man famous but lacked in authenticity when it came to Parker.  Andrew Garfield nailed the persona of Parker but couldn’t figure out the authenticity of Spider-Man. Holland brings the complete package to the role and future actors in this role will be compared to Holland.

                                  Holland pins down the insecure teenage angst of Parker but brings the still-learning but humorous Spider-Man persona to the superhero.  Holland has great repertoire as the nephew of Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) and he is confident in his scenes with the veteran Downey. Holland may not have been a household name before this film but after Homecoming, everyone will realize he is Spider-Man.

                                  The Bad:

                                  Nothing.

                                  The Middling:

                                  -Aunt May.  It’s not that Tomei does not fit the typical Aunt May-type.  It’s that the film doesn’t give anything for Aunt May to do and despite Tomei doing an admirable job, there just isn’t a chance to spread her wings with this character.  The one redeeming part for Tomei is that she gets the funniest line in the whole film.

                                  -The Vulture.  Keaton does a fun and at times, great job as Toomes/Vulture but this is more about the writers “telling and not showing” why he does what he does.  Toomes states a few times that he sells weapons to criminals to support his and his co-workers’ family, and while admirable in a deranged way, that is about as far as his motivation gets in the film.  This motivation is not helped by a small, surprising twist later in the film that feels more forced and included just for shock value rather than for an actual poignant plot twist. We don’t meet Toomes’ family till the final act and by that point, too much time has passed for the audience to care about his motivations.

                                  Final Grade: B (Good but the future of this franchise looks great)

                                  Spider-Man: Homecoming is the Spider-Man film that Sony should have made years ago.  Despite taking too long to reach an agreement with Marvel, Sony eventually did the right thing and Spider-Man is where he belongs, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  This film is fun from the start and despite a few small hiccups, everyone from kids to adults will enjoy the reboot that actually gets it right.

                                    We Be Geeks 224: We are NOT A Comic Con

                                    We open the show up talking about the ridiculous war between San Diego Comic-Con and Salt Lake Comic Comic-Con over the use of the word Comic-Con. We move to more con talk with the announcement that Mile High Comics is not going to be going to San Diego Comic Con for the first time in 44 years. We move into talking about whether movie studios are pandering to overseas audiences instead of the US. With ticket sales for the new Transformers movie and The Mummy, it is hard to argue. We give reasons why The Last Jedi could be the best Star Wars movie yet. We can only hope. We move onto more movie news when Time ranks all the Spider-Man movies. Do we agree with the rankings? You will have to listen to find out. We end the show talking about the Doctor Who finale. Warning:Spoilers.
