Hey, this is gonna be a real short one cause it’s the holidays and all, but I did want to shout out Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse real quickly because of how damn awesome it is.
From top to bottom, this Spider-Man movie is arguably one of the best ones that’s existed, paying homage to the best and weirdest parts of the character and his lineage. It’s one of the few times where fan service is done right, rewarding the hardcore Spidey fans with some real deep cuts, while still being fun for new fans as well.
The movie was visually impressive, blending various animation and art styles to represent changes in the story and the characters that were included at that moment. It was downright beautiful. And huge shout out to the soundtrack for being so good at amplifying the mood no matter what was going on. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has what we like to call, style.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for being a hilarious yet emotional film, that highlights a different incarnation of the web-head to the big screen. While Miles Morales isn’t a new character in the history of Spider-Man, he is new to a ton of people who have only seen the movies. That combined with the bevy of other Spider-folks that are involved in the film do a great job of reminding people that Spider-Man is an old character that they’ve done some weird stuff with.
Without spoiling anything, the end credits scene sets up some really exciting possibilities about what’s to come, whether it be more movies or a television series or whatever. Regardless of what they do to follow up Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I really hope they do something, because this was a phenomenal film from tip to toe, and it’d be a shame not to explore the vast possibilities that this movie’s success has unlocked.
