Spider-man into the Spider-verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
Deliriously inventive story telling in an eye-popping and original animation style (influenced by the texture and printing style of comic books) is a winning combination. The characters are defined strongly enough that they can easily withstand oodles of convoluted parallel-universe shenanigans. My minimal familiarity with the Spider-Man franchise allowed me to keep up but anybody making this their first foray in the Spidey world would be totally lost because this film precedes from the assumption that you know the usual setup already (in fact over familiarity with the franchise is made into a self-deprecating running joke). If I had to nitpick, it was a touch too long and the big finale came close to being visually exhausting. I'm sure the story will play just as strong on the small screen but the beautifully detailed and colourful animation is best seen at the cinema.

Wow! I can not believe it took me this long to watch this?!?!?  My daughter has been raving about this movie for months, telling me how much I will love it and yet I was reluctant to commit....

well, shame on me!  

This is Spider-tastic!!!!!!

If you are a Spidey fan from either the movies or comic books or cartoons, this is not only a Must Watch, but a MUST HAVE!

I loved every moment of this movie, it is a pure delight.  It is true and faithful to all the classic Spider-man tropes, filled with lots of heart and depth that gave me the FEELS several times throughout the story.  The animation is rich, gorgeous, and deftly handled; the dark tragic moments hit home with deep emotional impact while the broad silly humour uplifts you without breaking your suspension of disbelief.

The only nitpick I had was the Spider-man comic book Miles keeps referencing showing Peter Parker's origin, which is confusing since Peter Parker exist's in Mile's universe?

Despite this, I had a thoroughly fun ride and would put this on par with Raimi's Spider-man 2, or at the very least, consider this movie a direct sequel to the Raimi films.

Can't wait to watch the Alternate Universe blu ray bonus feature!  Big Grin

^ In the bonus features, they explained that for many sequences they used about 12 FPS instead of the usual 24, to give it a more comic book feel, as though it was actual comic book page frames edited together, so the eye can linger longer over the details in the imagery.

It is a very creative choice and works exceptionally well, as every second in this movie is a beautiful piece of art.  Smile
