    There's a moment really early into the movie where the main character is talking to the sound technician at a bar as the live band for that night is slowly but surely starting to set up, and the technician is too busy talking to him to do their job in leveling out the different volumes. He begrudgingly starts to do it. I'm just pointing this out because it reminds me so much about a moment back when I was doing…

    Everything that Batman V Superman failed at, this movie succeeds with. New characters are naturally integrated into the story, both sides have sympathetic logic, and everyone is well-developed.

    Spider-Man is handled really well, with probably the most accurate and well-executed film version of Peter Parker (even if it is in a pretty short amount of time). Characters that I've never cared much for, like Ant-Man and Scarlet Witch, are played perfectly here and at the…
