    The World's End

    ★★★½

    ★★★★½

    That was great. A solid story with solid characters.

    First of all, Spider-man and Ant-man were hilarious. I think Tom Holland is a fantastic Spider-man – he pretty much fills the areas the past two incarnations have lacked in (Maguire didn’t really talk much as Spider-man and Garfield was a terrible Peter Parker).
    I have mixed feelings on Vision’s involvement. I realize he was trying to stay out of everything because he felt fighting was unhelpful, but he didn’t really…
