    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★

    At first I thought "nah, this is shit". Wasn't much longer I was thinking "this movie is awesome!" Didn't take long for me to gravitate to this film. Gonna hand over some cash for this film tomorrow.

    ★★★★

    There’s a fine line walked here between cheesy and camp and sometimes the film doesn’t quite know what side of the fence it wants to be on. With moments that generate laughter for all the wrong reasons combined with scenes that are completely immersive and impressive, this film has a lot going on. The casting here is all pretty solid. Of course Jason Momoa fits the role of Aquaman to a tee. Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman are two pretty big names who have big roles. This is hardly going to be a standout performance on either but nonetheless they play their parts with conviction!

    ★★★★½

    If you have any interest in story telling or filmmaking you need to do yourself a huge favor and seek this film out. This film is a visual beauty and overall it is completely compelling. I can’t recommend this film any higher!

    If you research this film you will see that the story was influenced by true events when Dario Argento was receiving threatening letters and phone calls from an obsessed fan who continually criticized him for murdering beautiful women in his films. These events triggered him to write Tenebre.

    ★★★★★

    It’s a genuine landmark film, in both its franchise and its genre and it's my favorite film in the franchise.
