Buy it... if you seek the comfort of a conventionally symphonic superhero score that hits all the right notes, entertaining music with a tight narrative and serviceable themes.

Avoid it... if you expect Michael Giacchino to supply the same intangible emotional connections and fantasy element that Danny Elfman and James Horner had accomplished for the lead character.

Giacchino
Giacchino
Spider-Man: Homecoming: (Michael Giacchino) Thanks to the ever-shifting alliances of studios properties, the time arrived in the mid-2010's to integrate the famed Spider-Man character back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an expected financial decision that necessitated the third franchise reboot for Spider-Man on screen in 15 years. So ubiquitous are these reboots now that 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn't even bother depicting the actual origins of the titular character to much extent; rather, he's simply fodder for high school/teenage angst narratives mixed among Peter Parker's quest for respect, including a sickening excess of sucking up to Tony Stark. Although the film was a certain fiscal success, its story is ridiculous and occasionally asinine, especially in the ferry-splitting sequence. Still, enthusiasts of the 1994 romance Only You will appreciate the Robert Downey Jr. and Marisa Tomei casting, and Michael Keaton undoubtedly steals the show as a villain who gives the story its only momentously successful mid-script twist. Witnessing yet another reboot of this franchise is tiring, though, and it can be challenging to separate the inherently unnecessary existence of this film from any analysis of its soundtrack. Having successfully inherited the role of John Williams in the generation of nostalgic, large-scale orchestral film scores by this point, Michael Giacchino enters the equation having excelled in Marvel's Doctor Strange, and it's comforting to see Giacchino transition into yet another franchise to continue defying trends towards anonymous, synthetic, droning music for brooding superheroes. He follows superstar footsteps, Danny Elfman and James Horner writing extremely memorable and accomplished scores for the previous two reboots of the character on the big screen. Giacchino contends with a fair number of pop culture song placements in Spider-Man: Homecoming, hindering his ability to establish his thematic base in lighter shades for Peter Parker and his love interest. But, on the whole, Giacchino accomplishes everything he needs to in his work here, supplying the right personality for the film even if the result falls one step behind equivalent toils by Elfman and Horner.
