I just, can't get over how atrociously bad the writing in this film is lol.

and not even like, the gaping holes in logic necessary for the movie to even work. just like, the basic writing isn't good. Forced plot points all over, shoving in well tread origin story beats because it has to tie in with nostalgia beats, dull villains, and just zero weight to everything. The audience knows what's about to happen at every step, it's so boring.

this is like a glimpse of the future of Marvel films I feel, where the constant references to other films is the point of the film. where there's barely even a movie that stands on its own because it relies entirely on different movies to fill in the emotional plot beats.

movies that become nothing but referential fan service of films that themselves aren't anything but references to other things.

@maolfunction bro SHUT THE FUCK UP and go watch a gangster movie or something, I'm trying to collect more funko pops here to compensate for my male pattern baldness!!!!!

No Way Home spoilers 

@triumph_forks I'm watching Red Rocket on Tuesday, excited to go back to watching good movies. 💅

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction I might stream Matrix since it seems to be doing a good job of pissing off both the comic book dorks and the culture warriors

No Way Home spoilers 

@triumph_forks I'm waiting to watch that with friends, but yeah, I expect a good, hammy movie that mixes guns with gender with that one

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction But yeah, I got invited to watch Spider Man and I honestly didn't really give that much of a shit about it. It's probably the most blatant nostalgia-bait flick since The Force Awakens lmao

I really only watch these MCU movies hoping to see famous actors ham it up - and Willem Defoe and Alfred Molina didn't disappoint.

No Way Home spoilers 

@triumph_forks they did Molina dirty with that wig tho.

Dafoe tried to carry the movie on his back with the 10 minutes of screen time he was given lol

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction tfw they only casted Jamie Foxx just for him to make an offhanded comment about a black spiderman for the five minutes he was in the movie. Must be nice to get the bag like that

No Way Home spoilers 

@triumph_forks I thought the same thing lol. I was sitting there wondering what it felt like to be cast just to be the token black character, where a third of your lines is devoted to making a shout out to the black Spider-Man who doesn't make an appearance

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction LMAAOOOO

Waiting for the day an actor risks never getting a call from Disney again by saying these movies are shit, actually

@triumph_forks Marvel films and Scorsese films will never be the same because one can't use the word fuck in them. :theydonothing:

No Way Home spoilers 

@triumph_forks this is why Marvel films are bad, and Scorsese films are critically lauded

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction @triumph_forks MCU will always be bad because Disney won't let them have as much fun with it as Toei had

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks I do love how multiple people were cool with just swinging a toy Spider-Man into the side of a model and cutting to a completely different looking terrain of the actor rolling down a hill to sell the effect

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction I mean, the comics have long, long since become this lol

No Way Home spoilers 

@MochaKoffee hence why I don't read the comics anymore lol

it blows my mind that Feige seems intent on driving the MCU onto the exact same trajectory as the comics. those things that famously almost no one but diehard fans touch

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction spiderman winning best picture lmao

No Way Home spoilers 

@MochaKoffee imagine thinking spiderman could win best picture in the same year as the tragedy of macbeth released

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction The best thing about the MCU has been that it filters out the comic's worst impulses for a more mainstream audience, but eventually that will start to wane as well lol

Except they won't have the out that the comics do with the "hey go read this if you want to know what the hell's going on" panel.

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction I do wonder how long it'll take for the MCU to become *too* big, and people start talking about how there's too much stuff for a normal person to have to watch and remember.

People kick and scream about there being too much UC Gundam stuff, and the MCU's getting there lol

No Way Home spoilers 

@MochaKoffee that's what I'm waiting for. the moment where there's simply too much Marvel for the average person to give a damn because they've missed 10 movies or something

No Way Home spoilers 

@maolfunction I still think Endgame's going to be the Mostly Checked Out spot for the vast majority of people.

At least until X-Men, of course, lol. Disney's gonna milk Wolverine even drier than the comics do.
