Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ★★★★

Okay, so that was radical.

Once it was over, I felt like I wanted more "soul" -- more "gravitas" -- but then, I realized that the fun, loose nature of the whole affair was a huge strength. Even with some of the frivolously sentimental bits, Spider-Verse was just a rollicking good time.

Oddly enough, I enjoyed the scenes without the action the most. I sometimes found the fight scenes to be too much. (I know, I know.)

I'm looking forward to rewatching this. I'm already tempted to bump my rating up, but we'll see. I have feeling all the scenes will just get better and better when I toss this on in the future. And, I do expect to be tossing this on quite a bit in the future...

Oh, and I noticed that Beeple was a consultant on this. His signature pink-and-blue-futuristic style was hard to miss during that epic ending.
