I loved it, thinking it struck the perfect chord. Peter Parker is an anxious teenage boy, and Tom Holland evokes all the right emotions. (Hard to believe he's 21. He's playing 15 here, falsetto and all.)

I give it a strong 8.

Dawn loved it, too, though Lauren and her friends were a bit harder on it. "More backstory," they opined.

I don't disagree with that assessment, but do wonder whether it will come...or not. At this point, I don't see them circling back around to tell us lots about Uncle Ben.

If you like Spider-Man, I think you'll love it.

And if you don't, I still think you'll enjoy the heck out of it, if only because Downey and Favreau have lots of chirpy banter back and forth that's entertaining in and of itself.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is fun, funny, and rather electric.

Nice swingin, Spidey.
