Movies Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse reviews are coming in

Recommended Posts

Spoiler

"I'm going to go reexamine my personal biases!"

"Stop them! They're taking the bagel!"

 

That. Was. Fantastic.

 

And if you don't watch the post-credits scene, you are a POS. :angry:

That was a great movie.   

 

I had a few issues with the animation.  It seems whenever Miles dad is around the animation skips like it's missing frames.  I'm not sure if that is supposed to symbolize something or not but it was a little hard to look at.  Also some of the blur effects were a touch too blurry for me.  But those were all stylistic decisions.  Everyone has opinions and I'm sure others will love how all that was done.  Overall was a really great movie.

 

I'm not sure how all the rights work out but I would love it if they would introduce Miles in a live action Spider-man movie - then maybe give him a live action show on the new Disney network.

Well when it comes to the spider universe we are talking Sony really, so I won't be surprised if we see a buttload of new Spider-Man flicks...a bunch were already either hinted at or announced if I recall correctly. Hope they don't run the franchise into the ground....also I agree with you about the animation.

I think that Into the Spider-Verse is the most visually inventive CG animated film ever, and could enter the conversation for best looking animated films of all time.

 

That said, I really wish they hadn't animated on twos. If you're not aware, the basic idea is that if you animate on ones, you're drawing a frame of animation for every frame of the film. If you animate on twos, you're drawing a new animation for every other frame (though they still capture the full 24 or 30 frames). It's more common in older animation and in anime, especially anime where they need to save money. With Spider-Verse, I think it just makes it look jankey. If anything I wish they'd varied it, falling back to twos for certain story beats, rather than keeping it that way throughout (at least I think it was throughout).

 

Still, like I said, there is so much to praise about the animation and the style of the film. It seamlessly blends so much together and feels more comic book like than any comic book film ever, and I mean that as a real compliment. Breaking the screen into panels, using squiggles and lines, and bubbles, and color distortion (not sure what the right term is for that), all create a feeling that borrows from drawings on the page, but they're all used so purposefully. They're not just flourishes to remind you this was a comic book, they're using the techniques that comic books use to great effect. It's not wholly new, but it's done so well, and blended with so many other things that it's a visual feast all the way through.

 

I saw this in 3D because that was the screening that fit into my schedule, and I'd actually recommend it. The 3D was seamless and as well integrated into the animation as any of the other techniques used.

 

Animation aside, the movie is also just great. I don't think it's necessarily the best Spider-Man movie ever (Spider-Man 2 does still exist), but it's really great.

Spider-man 2 is fine but it doesn’t hold up that well imo besides Molina killing it as Doc Ock. This to me was way better than S2.

Seriously... this movie needs to make lots of money.

 

A family movie that isn't primarily targeted toward 5-6 year olds? A movie that is kid friendly, but not pandering or moronic? A kids movie that is actually smart and interesting? An animated movie with a daring over-the-top art style instead of the same old thing we've seen a million times?

 

Yes please.

How bout a Spider-Man movie with tons of villains that doesn't feel like it needs to explain the backstory to every single one?

It's why I love great Pixar movies. Kids will love it but adults will likely appreciate it more.

Watched it this morning with my wife. Really fantastic film. I caught myself feeling some emotions that I didn't expect. I noticed the frame rate thing as well but figured it was just by design.

 

Also, I'm somewhat sensitive to flashing lights/colors, there were a few scenes that I had to close my eyes for a moment as my eyes/head started feeling weird.

Is this to Spider-Man what Mask of the Phantasm is to Batman (ie, the best Batman movie)?

No. It's way better.

Pick up any if the Miles Morales trades,  they also just launched a new comic with him last week to coincide with the movie. Lastly get the original Spider-verse crossover the movie takes it's name from. The premise is completely different.

Only criticism I have:

 

How was Doc Ock able to CHOKE Tombstone? That one bugged me a bit.

 

But that's easily forgiven seeing how great the rest of the movie is.

Sony considering TV Spin-offs based on "Into The Spider-verse"

 

Quote

Sony has a parade of big-budget sequels on the way — “Men in Black: International” arrives in June — and the studio is aggressively mining the rights it holds to Marvel characters in the Spider-Man comics family. To that end, movies based on Morbius, Black Cat and Silver Sable are in the works; the Sinister Six could be Sony’s answer to “The Avengers.” Sony is also considering making animated television shows based on characters introduced in “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” which has collected $276 million at the box office.

I just saw it today. This was absolutely a joy to watch. This is the best Spider-Man feature to be shown in theaters.
