SMR 217: Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Rod and Karen review the animated Miles Morales Spider-Man movie, “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.”



    This movie is so good, that I forgot about Venom, entirely. I love the way this movie is animated; it’s very sharp, colorful, diversive & smooth. Every character, environment & place is just so fluid. The voice acting is great. Simple, but impactful story. It’s also very funny. Quite possibly the funniest Spider-Man film ever. It’s just a great time all around. Can’t wait to see it again.

    This movie was incredible! This was the first time New York felt real, the Stan Lee scene absolutely got me, and the references were made for a Spider-Man fan like me.

    I still do have to take a star off the ratings when I found out they had the actor that plays Tobias from Black Lightning as Tombstone but didn’t let him have any of his anti-Black bars. That would have out this as a 6/5 to hear him cooning like that, but I’ll take what we got.

    Hi Rod and Karen,

    Into the Spiderverse was So.Damned.Good. I saw it in 3D and the film was spectacular. I felt the same way you guys did, the music, the colors, the accurate reflection of life in the big city and the blending of the communities that Miles represents. I love how all the Spideys were included without diminishing the fact that this was Miles’s story. I would love more Spiderverse movies and Aunt May can assume the role of Miles’s Alfred, or Gambi if you will since his parent don’t know about his alter ego. Thanks for letting me know about the end credit scene, it gives me the excuse I was looking for to go see this again. I can’t wait for this to come out in 4K because the visual on that is going to be phenomenal. This is one of those films where if someone told me they disliked it, I’d side-eye them so hard.

    After sleeping on it and listening to some other reviews, I’ve had a chance to really think about Spider-Man Into the Spiderverse some more. I give it 5 stars. I think it’s neck and neck with Black Panther being my favorite super hero movie of the year. I think it’s because Wakanda is fake place and Brooklyn is a real tangible place, so it’s representation felt realer. I really liked it.

    Maybe it’s the Brooklynite in me or the fact that Miles reminds me of my brother when he was younger with the fade, graffiti and crates of records, but this hands down the best Super Hero movie I’ve seen in a year. It was representation so close to home. The animation was stellar. Stan Lee saying his famous quote about anyone can be Spider-Man behind the mask had me Misty eyed. Miles spray painting his suit black and climbing to the top of the building made me cry and burst with joy. The voices, colors, comic book style animation…this movie. Sony was like go ahead and keep Tom Holland.
