    Definitely good but even tougher to share what I really want to without just spoiling things.

    Could be the most important mid-credit scene ever for these movies, though.

    I can confirm that this movie is really good (even more so than Homecoming), but it's also going to be the hardest to review because spoilers.

    But yeah, best mid-credits scene of the MCU.

    Alright well first the sliiightly spoilery, though likely nothing you probably couldn't surmise yourself:

    After some awkward dullness to his character and his performance, Gyllenhaal really turns it up and his Mysterio delivers in big ways and about 2/3rds of the way in becomes the force behind one of the most enthralling sequences of the entire MCU for me. Just stunning, nightmarish stuff. I also really liked how they tied his character into the pasts of other characters in play both past and present. Not to mention Zendaya's MJ is given the natural progession of her character in terms of overall knowledge (something I guess the trailers already gave away), but I also really liked the agency and sharpness they gave her, especially compared to the history of how Spider-Man movies have treated his love interests.

    But ok then the more major:

    [
    ]

    The whole movie is also very funny and made me laugh consistently throughout. I missed the beginning of the end-end credits scene but it seemed beautifully weird as well, though if it implies what I think then what a bizarre revelation for those character's involvement in all this.

    My initial reaction is this is not only the best Spider-man movie but also the best comic book movie ever.

    Ehhhhh. The very high charm of those actual high school field trip parts compensates for the lackluster execution of big picture plot for me, but just barely. It's a testament to Gyllenhaal that I didn't immediately eject mentally outright from the film after the verbal and exposition diarrhea his character is gven when the other shoe drops. Maybe more later... I did like though that Gyllenhaal is given almost this exact moment during the climax (Didn't remember his actual words; still hope it's made into a gif soon):

    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Yeah, this was fun in the most unexpected ways. More when I get home, spoiler tags on the phone are a hassle.

    Mildest of yays for me, but less a breath of fresh air after the serious, but resonating shenanigans of Endgame and more a return to superhero fatigue for me.
    It's a ridiculous spectacle, working only on the most superficial levels for me. The kinda levels where shit blows up, and stuff moves around with panache and visual flair, but
    not where I'm fully engaged with the on-screen action. Is it funny? Sometimes, but it's equally forced a few other times. That whole thing between Ned and the blonde girl springs to mind.
    These are not normal, flesh and blood people whose behavior can be considered in any way relatable and authentic.

    Biggest of nitpicks here. Example: That stood out to you as abnormal but not the entire premise? It's within the universe that has been established. We are not watching Brick here.

    Note: When was the last time a highly successful movie got a highly successful sequel that cost less to make?
