    The whole family enjoyed the hell out of it. My only beef was the lack of connection to the larger MCU/Sony Spider-verse. But they left things vague enough to forge a connection later on, if they want. Otherwise, it might work standalone.

    • My family enjoyed it more than we expected. It’s not up to typical MCU quality, but it out does just about anything in the DCEU.

        “but it out does just about anything in the DCEU”

        That’s not a high bar to jump.

        • Agreed, but I consider those movies still worth watching. At least if you put out a movie whose primary character is one I know from a comic, I’ll see it. If it’s at least as enjoyable as, say Justice League, I’m satisfied. Venom made it pretty far over that bar.

            Here’s an interesting debate: If the MCU movies didn’t exist, would we be as harsh and critical of the DCEU movies?

            • JD DeLuzio says:

              An interesting question, since the DCEU movies likely wouldn’t exist if not for the MCU, but, I think, if the MCU movies didn’t exit, the culture likely would retain the notion that superhero movies are for a niche audience, and that might get them a bit of a pass among the members of that audience.
