Lately I’ve been very into Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse again since it started coming on FX and since I’ve seen it three times in the past two weeks or so I figured I might as well revisit this post which perfectly sums up my adoration of this movie which has now become my favorite animated film of all time! Enjoy.
The trick to Into the Spider-Verse isn’t the story, the story is actually rather basic, nor is it the music (which is pretty great by the way.) There’s something else to this film that has me going back for more and that is the absolutely stunning animation.
The movie melds at least a half dozen genres in one movie and it is mind-blowing. From being uncannily realistic looking at times to appearing like a strip right out of a comic book and even having the cartoony look of a Looney Tunes cartoon mixed with manga animation plus some truly psychedelic visuals can leave one’s brain scrambled in sheer awe.

For the first time in my weekly segment of Fan Art Wednesday, I will be sharing a collection of work from artists around the world and their fantastic fan art for franchises that I love. So, with no further delay, here is this week’s Fan Art Wednesday. Enjoy!
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.
Nearly two decades and four Spider-Men have arrived to grasp our hearts on the big screen. The character continuously evolves over the years and we could very well see a live-action version of Miles Morales in the coming decade, adding to this list. Because Spider-Man has been such a hot topic for the past month since the Sony/Marvel Studios debacle I felt he would be the perfect person for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy!
Tobey Maguire Becomes the First Live-Action Spider-Man
Tobey Maguire would become iconic for being the first person to bring the web-slinging superhero to life on the big screen that caught the hearts of millions. Grossing $825 million at the global box office, it was confirmed that this version of Spider-Man was a booming success.
He would go on to make two more movies, with Spider-Man 3 going on to have the worst reviews of all of the live-action Spider-Man films at 6.2 out of 10 stars on IMDb. It was after Spider-Man 3 that it was obvious a new Spider-Man needed to be crowned. Continue reading Who’s Your Favorite Spider-Man?→
Spider-Man is a character who has been on the big screen in an exciting way for nearly two decades now. First we had the Tobey Macguire Spider-Man trilogy that featured the character in a way that fans of the hero enjoyed. Then Andrew Garfield had two Spider-Man films that weren’t received with as much praise. In fact, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was so horrendous that it seemed we wouldn’t get another Spider-Man movie for a very long while.
Then, boom, in 2016 we get one of the most exciting superhero debuts in the MCU with Spider-Man making his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War. He became an immediate fan-favorite as Tom Holland’s rendition of the character brought a perfect youthful energy that hadn’t been properly conveyed on the big screen before.
And then, last year, Sony delivered a powerful cinematic debut to a new version of the character in Miles Morales. So powerful, in fact, that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won an Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Animated Film and is rated #60 on the list of top 250 movies on IMDb.
