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

Never thought I'd be giving this film five stars when I sat down to watch it this evening. But how can I not? It's perfectly animated, wonderfully voiced, amazingly written and an absolute blast to watch from the very start to the very end, not missing a single beat. The music, the action, the humour.. There's not much about it that's not already been said. It's nothing short of brilliant.

This is the best Spider-Man movie. It's not even a competition. It's fair to say I, like many others, have 'superhero fatigue'. Sure, I'll watch them, but I'm no longer actively excited about superheroes as I once was. Too much of the same for too long from the MCU (with the exception of Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians) and too much mediocrity from the DCEU. I no longer believe the hype any more, hence why it's taken me so long to watch this. I'm tired of it. But Into the Spider-Verse subverted all of my expectations, truly. And I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about it.
