I'll admit that I too liked Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman, and I loved Wonder Woman. I have no idea what they were doing with Suicide Squad. I kinda hated that movie, but I didn't dislike the other ones the way some people did.

I got to see Spiderman: Homecoming opening weekend with two good friends. I thought it was pretty great! It was a departure I think form most non-ensemble MCU movies, but I'm guessing that has to do with the fact that this is the first MCU movie featuring a teenager as the lead. As far as high-school dramas, I think this is possibly the best one I've ever seen. It fit nicely into the MCU without feeling overshadowed by the Avengers. The significant plot twist at the end was a delight (even if a little forced?). I admit I was a little annoyed with how they slipped in Tony Stark proposing to Pepper Potts... in a Spiderman film?!. Overall, I gave it a 7/10 stars on IMDB. Not as good as Guardians 1 and 2 or Ant-Man, but still excellent.

In that vein, I'm very much looking forward to Thor: Ragnarok (Cate Blanchett anyone?!?!), Black Panther (super happy to see a large cast of POC), and Avengers: Infinity War (Avengers meet Guardians!!!).

With the release of the first trailer for the remake of A Wrinkle in Time I'll be rewatching the 2003 version. It'll be fun to see the updated movie, with better special effects too.
