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

with a beating heart wrapped up in eye-popping visual artistry, Into the Spider-Verse is a vibrant blast of a film. its ambitions soar high while remaining grounded in character. its jokes fly fast but its drama holds weight. it’s boundlessly kinetic but never too frantic as it spins the web of Miles’s story, hitting every narrative beat with stylish ease. the bar for animated cinematic comic book adaptations has been hefted sky-high, and I couldn’t be more excited about the explosive imaginative potential on display here. a thrill to behold! more movies like this, please!! 🙏💥🙌😍
