The Breakdown of 'Spider-Man: Homecoming', 'Bone Tomahawk', 'The Girl with All the Gifts' and 'Mortal Instrument: City of Bones'
The Breakdown serves up a review of the latest big Marvel spectacular and the first collaboration with Sony Pictures in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It is the third launching of this franchise in 15 years but this time tries something different by focusing on Peter Parker's high school life. We discuss if this new direction works. As well we look at some genre pictures that may not be straight horror but definitely have some strong elements of it in the Western cannibal picture, Bone Tomahawk and the latest zombie picture, The Girl with All the Gifts. We also go all YA as we discuss The Mortal Instrument: City of Bones. Finally, we also look at the hug success of Wonder Woman and analyze what this means about the future of diveristy in tentpoles. As always if you enjoy the show then please spread the word to other movie lovers.
