Even if you don’t normally watch cartooned movies, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a must see.
I waited longer than normal to see this movie due to the holidays; visiting and doing all the things that come with the time of year prevented it. Now that I have, I honestly feel it is hands down the winner of best animated movie of the year Oscar.
The creators of this movie didn’t miss a thing in putting Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse together. The music is perfect in accompanying the action of the story; a story laid out in details that work together into a movie with 100 minutes run time. The story, I’m sure, misses points found in the comics if only due to time limits, but wonderfully moves in an interesting plot line to bring the other Spidey’s together from their ‘verses to stop the villains of this ‘verse’s Spiderman. The animators use comic book features in the cells in a way that celebrates the comic book artists work instead to ignoring it. Thought balloons pop up when called for and the illustrators use dots and cross hatching in the background. They were smart to pay homage to the original comic’s in this way. It adds to the visual dynamic without becoming hard to watch or garish. It also gives the film a 3D feeling.
I want to tell you more about the movie. but I don’t want to give you spoilers. I will tell you that I came to love the different versions of Spider-Man and Spider Noir was given voice by Nicholas Cage in his best performance in years. His was also the only voice that was possible to recognize without knowing ahead of time who voiced the character.
I don’t generally agree with Rotten Tomatoes ratings except for high and low amounts of Tomatoes. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a whopping 97 tomatoes, but I can’t help but think the -3 tomatoes was because it was an animated movie. Some people just hold animated movies in the same esteem as camera filmed movies. It’s only a pass if you don’t like action movies.
I leave you with a line from the earworm going through my head, “Spiderpig, spiderpig, Does whatever a spiderpig does.” * Don’t worry. The song isn’t in the movie. Thank G.
P.S. At this point in time start reading with your best Valley Girl voice in your head.
Viewing this film, I thought that the deeb ticket person forgot to give us a pair of the fugy black 3D wraps. They didn’t. This struck in my brain, so, when I revisited the film, I scored a pair to watch the movie the second time. It as epic. Only problem was that the background flashed like a strobe light that would give a seizure to an epileptic with the 3D glasses on. The picture had more depth and the details showed clearer in the characters. It’s worth the look if there is no chance of seizure.
