Spider-Man Homecoming


Or, How to make a Marvel movie I'lL Actually enjoy

Skip the backstory, 
Puberty metaphors are played out anyway, 
Industrial decline placed center stage.
Depict Queens the way it really is (that is, diverse and dirty).
Explosions have their place, but don't forget this is basically
Radioactive Breakfast Club. 

Machismo exists to be mocked, leering at
Aunt May aside. 
No toxic paternalism should go unchallenged. 

Humanity matters
Over technology, no
Matter how charming and British the tech may me.
Effects should be used in service of
Childlike wonder
May we never forget
Images evoked by planes careening towards
New York
Going down in flames.
