    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    One Halloween, when I was 18, a friend of mine invited me to her house for an evening party on Facebook Messenger. I asked if it was a fancy-dress situation and she said it was. You probably don't know this about me, but I fucking love dress-up. I love the camp value in commiting to being this wacky character all night, I love putting an outfit together from nothing, I love it all. It's one of my biggest guilty pleasures…

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Spider-Man Homecoming is a market researcher's dream, the kind of thing that can only come from 6 writers, a director-for-hire, and 2 studios bending over backwards to manage the feat of making the 3rd big screen Spider-Man incarnation without pissing anyone off. The result is a sanitized, test-audience-proofed, safe, watered-down and completely disposable "action" movie that happens to have a purposely underwritten Spider-Man at its center.

    What trips it up ultimately is just how disingenuous the whole thing feels.

    Oh…
