Punch Drunk DVDs: 'Spider-Man: Homecoming', 'Girls Trip', 'Stranger Things: Season One' And More!


Spider-Man finally makes his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Following the events of last year’s Captain America: Civil War, Homecoming sees the teenage superhero (Tom Holland) eager to join forces with The Avengers again for another mission, that is if his mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will let him. In an attempt to stay low key, Spider-Man tries his best to just fight smaller crimes in his own neighborhood. Unfortunately for him, a small scale smuggler he’s tracking is gaining power, and quickly becomes the villainous Vulture (Michael Keaton), creating the same type of danger Stark wanted him to avoid. Can he truly juggle being Spider-Man and a just normal kid at the same time?  

We Said: “The Marvel Cinematic Universe hasn't felt right without him, to be perfectly honest. With Spider-Man: Homecoming the MCU has finally been set right, and they did it with a film that's funny, light on its feet, a little bit retro, a little bit modern, and different than any Spider-Man we've seen on the big screen.” Rating: 3.5 out of 5

The surprise smash hit comedy of the summer, Girls Trip follows four old friends (Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish) who reunite to travel to a huge music festival in New Orleans as a way to reignite their friendship. Along the way, the group goes wild: dancing, drinking, frighting, and partying the way they did when they were younger.

We Said: “It’s pretty cool to see a comedy starring black women getting to do all the raunchy, fun humor that usually we see white men do all the time, occasionally black men and that one time we saw white women. Hopefully, this does well and we can see more of these type of movies that are universal yet also celebrate another part of American culture like this one does. This movie really isn’t perfect but it’s really, really good. […] Girls Trip is very much worth the trip.” Rating: 4 out of 5
