I finally saw Spider Man Homecoming last week and it solidified my conviction that superhero movies just aren't for me. Couldn't have cared less about anything that was happening in the movie, and even the action bits were dull (that CGI spider man was less convincing than Grand Moff Tarkin in Rouge One didn't help).
My children, who enjoyed it, told me that my reaction solidified their conviction that I'm an old, grumpy man.
Away from the mainstream, the last two weeks have been a film festival here in MKE, so we managed to see some other films.
Swim Team: Follows a group of autistic children in New Jersey and the swim team that they're a part of. Heartwarming and also heartbreaking via exposing how terrible we are at helping those with autism or learning disabilities.
Dina: A slice-of-life documentary about two autistic people who are in love and getting married. Intriguing, but kind of made me wonder why I was watching it. Not sure it had a point, other than watching these two people connect and disconnect and connect.
Infinity Baby: A comedy with way too many funny people in it that just kind of fell flat. It had some funny moments, but I think it was trying to be smart and whatever statement it was trying to make didn't land. Luckily, it was only 70 minutes long, so it didn't overstay its welcome.
