A Personal Analysis of ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’

I’ve seen a lot of movies in my time, I’ve seen a lot of amazing superhero movies, but I’ve never seen anything like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse before. I watched this movie three times in 26 hours, that’s how much I enjoyed it. In fact, it seems to get better with every viewing. This movie is beyond amazing and it fills my heart with such a boundless joy that I had to write this second review to talk about it more deeply. So, on that note, let’s get to this more analytic review.

Have you ever seen a movie that just…makes you happy to be alive? A film so good that you can’t imagine the world without it after you’ve seen it? Well, that’s Into the Spider-Verse for me.

This film is beyond just a superhero movie. It is yet another cultural stepping stone in Hollywood that shows the world how beautiful it is to tell diverse stories with lovable characters of all races, shapes, and sizes.

I have never been a Spider-Man fan…that is until recently with Tom Holland’s rendition of the iconic character. I loved Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, I loved Spider-Man: Homecoming, and I absolutely LOVED him in Infinity War. But honestly, MCU Peter Parker has been dethroned…badly.

My Review of ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’

Okay, I have been waiting since December to see this movie. I didn’t get a chance to see at the movie theaters and so I have been patiently waiting for it to be available to rent digitally. Well, yesterday I went to see if it was available to rent and sure enough it was. My eyes widened, my breathing became an excited pant, and my fingers flew across the screen to rent the movie.

So, long story short, I watched it…twice (in less than 24 hours) and now I know what all the hype is all about. This movie is amazing!

First off, I just want to say, this animation is absolutely AMAZING! The pictures give this movie no justice whatsoever. I watched this film both times utterly stunned with what I was seeing. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. This movie is fashioned like you’re watching the most beautiful, most unique comic book you have ever read.

This is hands down the best origin story film I have ever watched because it’s somehow multiple origins stories at the same time as Miles Morales’ story and it’s just…amazing. Gosh, I’m still reeling by how good this movie is.

Season 1 of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Ends With An Okay Finale

Since October of last year, I have followed the story of Star Wars: Resistance. I have been dragged through the wringer, with each week presenting new emotions that bordered on downright annoyed or absolutely exhilarated. And now, we have finally reached the conclusion of the first season.

Was it everything I had hoped for? No. Was it at least good? Yes. Does it make me excited for Season 2? Definitely. Here is the finale’s synopsis.

With Neeku’s help, Kaz comes up with a risky plan to rid the Colossus of the First Order once and for all.

This was said to be a shocking finale but really it wasn’t that shocking at all.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! Do not read any further if you don’t want to know what happens in the finale. Thank you for heeding my warning.

With One Episode Left, ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Is Raising the Stakes

Star Wars: Resistance, the cartoon that a few months ago I was haranguing for its lackluster storytelling week after week. Every once in a while a good episode would arrive that would have me invested but for the most part, I was pretty bored every week. That narrative has long been lost and now I can truly announce that I love this show.

This week’s episode, No Escape: Part 1, is the beginning of a two-part finale and it was just as riveting as one might expect. Here is its synopsis.

Kaz, Neeku, and Torra try to save their friends as the First Order prepares to demonstrate the power of its superweapon.

The stakes were high, the action was suspenseful, and the episode’s chill-inducing conclusion is a perfect way to head into next week’s finale. As the episode played out I found myself thrilled on so many different levels.

Because I’m writing this review today I’ll share some insight on some of the episode’s greatest moments and how I felt about certain developments in context with the story.

Enjoy!
