Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ★★★★★

Sony Animation going from Emoji Movie to this and The Mitchells vs. The Machines is a truly wild studio glow-up.

I’m willing to say this is the best comicbook superhero movie ever made. It’s a masterclass in transmedia storytelling that actually feels like you’re watching a comic book movie and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in animation. It’s beautiful to look at, and the final fight scene in particular is one of the most amazing animation sequences I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty incredible how many different characters and fan service-y nods this manages to cram into its into 2-hour runtime while still feeling extremely accessible (unlike many of the recent MCU movies.) I forgot how much Daniel Pemberton’s score absolutely slaps, and the Prowler theme is truly bone-chilling. Pretty. Much. Perfect.
