Review:

I was told by the entire world to watch this movie, which I’m grateful for because I had not even heard of it until my Twitter blew up about it and suddenly people who couldn’t agree on anything were agreeing this movie was amazing.

Sadly, I had to wait until Red Box got it, but then I ended up buying it immediately because damnit, it is just that good.

Miles Morales, Shameik Moore, is a teenager just starting a new preppy school and life kind of sucks right now in an angsty teenage way. Then, when he’s getting his groove back, a spider bites him and his super powered existence begins.

Just when things are starting to look up, the original Spider-Man is going to teach him everything he needs to know, things again get shaken up, and he’s all on his own. His father has made it clear that he’s not a Spider-Man fan, but I truly believe if Miles had gone to him it would have been alright. He was clearly a supportive father that loved his son deeply, though, he probably wouldn’t have let him participate in the whole multiverse thing.

I bet if he’d told his dad his dad would have insisted he go and do the thingie that had to be done with the goober and he would have died instead of who died and we still would have had a Spider-Man origin story, but damn this one was SO much better than that.

Anyway, I love that Miles has a loving and supportive mother and father. I do wonder if his dad figured out who he was there at the end. Lily Tomlin as Aunt May is something I had no idea the world needed until now and I hope she is in future movies because she was great.

Have I mentioned the art? Holy fucking shit it was incredible. It was mind boggling good. I don’t think I’ve ever seen something that looked so amazing, definitely not a full length movie. It was just…hold on I need to go watch it again.

If you haven’t seen Into the Spiderverse for whatever reason, watch it. It deserved every award it received, it deserved all the hype, it was so.good.

5/5
