Now I need to avoid this thread and all spoilers until this comes out on UHD this spring. See you in 90 days!

Loved it. I don't think I've had as much fun in a theatre since Infinity War/Endgame. What an incredible ride.
Willem Dafoe really hasn't lost his edge. Green Goblin was absolutely terrifying in this film. I guess at the time the first Spider-Man was shot, the character couldn't help but be a little cheesy. Without really changing anything about the core character, the MCU turned him into a great villain. That grin he gave Peter just before throwing the bomb at May and his "you can thank me later" line... really gave me chills.
Another thing I liked was how the entire nature of Electro's power changed after being exposed to the different energies of the MCU (just getting his body back seemed to restore some of his sanity)... and then of course the Arc Reactor acting as temptation and upping his game even further... that was a clever touch. I hated Electro in ASM2, so this incarnation was a welcome change.
I stayed entirely spoiler free, so the whole redeeming the villains thing was a surprise for me, and one I really enjoyed. Particularly in the case of Norman and Doc Oc. I'm kind of curious how it would all work, though... since they came from the past of their respective Universes and the two Peters came (presumably) from the present, will both Peters
return to slightly altered timelines with redeemed future versions of those villains?
Some of my favourite stuff was jus the dialogue between the various characters.
"Max was such a sweet guy before he fell into a vat of electric eels."
"Yeah, that'll do it."
Can't wait to see it again.
That's probably the dumbest ******* thing you've ever posted, and that's saying somethingThere was something that was of note to me at the beginning of the movie...
A student forced to kill in self-defence who then gets hounded and harassed in his real life and online by other students, the general public and the media even though he was cleared of charges of murder.
A favorite of mine as well. Completely missed it the first time but I noticed it on the second watch through.One of my favorite details I don't see anyone mentioning is how when Strange knocks Peter's spirit out of his body, his spirit actually shows the Spidey Sense tingle lines around his head.
