Review: Spider-Man Homecoming

Swinging into action is the long-awaited addition to the Spider-Man franchise.

Jon Watts’ film is not just a superhero blockbuster but its central coming-of-age tale connects with children and adults alike.

Tom Holland, a 21 year-old Brit, was picked by Marvel to play 15 year-old Peter Parker. He does not disappoint! Swinging across the screen, his warmth and hunger for adventure wins us over from the moment we are introduced to him.

Throughout the film he comes up against opposition from teachers, classmates, and Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr). Feeling locked in, he dreams of fighting bigger fights and bigger enemies. He soon gets his wish when he comes face to face with The Vulture – played by Michael Keaton. Keaton’s slow progression from everyday guy to powerful weapons dealer is masterful.

Watts gifts us with some of the most exhilarating superhero action sequences in years. A trained gymnast, Holland makes Spiderman’s backflips and stunts look effortless.

Throw in a number of brilliant gags, the inevitable romantic subplot and fan-pleasing goosebump moments, Spider-Man Homecoming is one to watch this summer.

Interview with Jon Watts (Spider-Man: Homecoming)

Spider-Man: Homecoming is perhaps one of the most highly anticipated films of the summer (if we’re not including that video you’re going to make with you’re friends).

It’s been a long time coming as well.

First of all, the name was announced April 2016 and we all got that shocking JAY Z-moment where we found out that the name ‘Spider Man’ was being spelt as ‘Spider-Man’ WITH the dash (to be honest, that’s the way it’s always been spelt in the films but it still came as a surprise).

Then, Tom Holland did a back flip on Instagram and revealed that he was the new ‘Spider-Man' (WITH the dash) and then some filming happened, he appeared in ‘Captain America: Civil War’, posters came out and BAM - it’s Summer 2017.

The man spearheading the whole film has been director Jon Watts who has seen his vision come to life with this latest film.

James Gilmore interviewed Jon Watts about directing ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’, new villains and more.

Interview with Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is one of the most successful kid’s book series… well ever really!

The whole empire – books and films and lots of laughs along the way – has touched so many kids around the world. We wanted to get to the bottom of the man who is behind it all (well, understand him – not really get to his bottom)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is the latest book-to-film in the series and it follows the Heffley family as they go on a family road trip to attend Meemaw’s 90th birthday party. But it all goes off course thanks to Greg’s newest scheme to (finally!) become famous.

James Gilmore interviewed author Jeff Kinney about the book series, seeing his books on the big screen and crazy stories from his childhood.
