Spiderman: The Homecoming
Really enjoyed it – it’s basically an American highschool movie merged with the Marvel universe (Tony Stark acting as mentor to a teenage Spiderman) slightly thin on plot and perhaps not as many greatly written lines as the best superhero films, but Tom Holland is fantastic as the 15 year old Peter Parker, desperate to prove his credentials amongst his superhero peers (his best-friend / awestruck-sidekick Ned is a riot). The casting director seems to have taken the idea of racial diversity a little too far (was their mission statement to have no white characters other than Spidey?)
