    ★★★★

    Shirley MacLaine is so, so charming in this. I think the whole film falls apart if you don't root for the protagonist of this story, so fortunately MacLaine's portrayal of Charity makes you desperately want the best for her.

In the case of Into the Spider-Verse, I had to reconcile my love for both film and comic books in the same experience, a feeling which left me shaken through much of the…
