Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

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

"We're the Spider...uh...Gang!"

Here I am, coming very late to the party. When this movie was announced, I was less than enthused, oh yay, a random Spider-Man animated movie. Expectations were not high. Then this thing exploded upon the world to great exclaim. I had to finally see it for myself, and I can gleefully report that it is amazing, spectacular and all the other spider-adjectives combined.

Spider-Man was my initial gateway into comics, so I am very pleased the character is given the respect he is worthy of here. This movie has the look and feel of the best Marvel comics. The animation is perfect. The script has all the Spidey-snark we know and love, but also so much heart and joy and wonder and awe. I think the world was pleasantly taken by surprise by this movie.

Basically, whoever crafted this work of art should have all the studio bucks thrown at them to produce more like this.

One last thing: It fills me with joy to know that Spider-Ham now has an Oscar on his mantel! 🐷🕸🕷
