I took a vacation day today. Mental health reasons, shopping reasons, family reasons, exercise reasons. Not going into the details of them, just making note that the reasons exist.

I saw Spider-Man: Homecoming last night. I had fun watching that for a lot of reasons. Sure, it's mildly annoying that this is the third version of the character to hit the movie theatres in the last decade. But since it firmly locks this version into the MCU, and for a lot of other reasons, I can be good with it.

In fact, I am very good with it. Some of those reasons for that mood?

Tyne Daly as Anne Marie Hoag.

(Feeling sad that Dwayne McDuffie didn't live to see that.)

Seeing Midtown High reworked as a specialty high school dealing in science and tech.

(I still felt uncomfortable with some of the high school stuff being no different from my day in the real world. *sigh* )

Spider-Man being part of the fabric of the Borough of Queens.

The first big twist midway through the show.

The surprise ending. Was NOT expecting that.

(Not the Avengers angle. The thing after that. Come back after you've seen it yourself and we'll talk about that.)

This is not a complete list of the good stuff.

Loved the final Captain America appearance at the very end of the credits. Also, the first one.

We quite enjoyed it, and that's saying a lot for me. I am not a Spiderman fan, never really was. I saw the very first Sony Spiderman movie and was not impressed, can't remember if I saw the second. Saw none of the others. LOVED his appearance in Civil War and was eager to see him in Homecoming. Spidey definitely needed the studio switch: Sony just doesn't know how to make Marvel movies, IMO. Witness their attempts with the Fantastic Four, another franchise that I never had any particular interest in.

The surprise ending was awesome! Definitely going to have some long-term consequences.
