For me this movie made all the ghosts of Spidermen past go away. I collected comics in the 80s and had ones from the 60s all the way up. So I became a real nitpicker on a lot of the movie adaptations. Spiderman kept messing up worst of all under Sony. First biological webshooters and Mary Jane being first GF and also being the one thrown off the bridge by Green Goblin and surviving. Then Amazing Spiderman...closer to comic but still some things wrong such as where Gwen died(see afore mentioned Goblin tossing someone off bridge...that was supposed to be Gwen and dying) but overall closest. Then this new one comes out with changes to all supporting characters to make it a Woke version with a very young Peter that instead of being afraid if Aunt May found out she would die of a heart attack to being afraid she would woop the tar out of him. This multiverse one saved the day with making room for all the Spidermen there were, are going to be and the original in the comics. Even opens it up for the different Hulks, etc. So I can go back and watch any of them from a perspective of just one of many possibilities...
I wasn't expecting to enjoy the movie as much as I did, but I loved it so much that I bothered to even write a review after watching it and I never do that. This movie has fan service but executed extremely well. Star Wars MOVIES (Not TV Shows) need to take a note from No Way Home. If you are a casual MCU fan, this movie helps push forwards the plot for Dr. Strange's next movie. You'll most likely enjoy it. Action, Comedy, Drama... Fun for the whole family. If you are a Spider-man Nerd, then it is your duty to watch this. Especially if you saw the previous 2 iterations when they came out in theaters. All the little callbacks, dialogue & scenes, pay tribute to the old films very well. So well it made me damn cry not once but a few times, which is another rare occurrence for me with movies. I don't watch comic book movies like Kevin Smith and cry at every scene so for this movie to make me cut onions more than once.....That should really state how much I enjoyed the movie. I may even buy a hard copy of it when it gets released. It's an AMAZING SPECTACLE of a movie!
Best theater experience I've ever had in my life. Never thought a spiderman movie like this would be made. I'm glad it was. There was a good amount of fan service but they did it the right way. There is a lot of things you can nitpick on in this movie but why do that and just pay attention to the great things about this movie. Because the good outweighs the bad by so much. Truly a great marvel film and spiderman film. If you're a spiderman fan then this movie will make you cry and cheer.
