Grant Paulsen’s review published on Letterboxd:
“It’s almost like stealing people’s data and giving it to a hyper-intelligent AI as part of an unregulated tech monopoly was a bad thing.”
I don’t know what it is that Sony Pictures Animation is doing but whatever it is, it’s working. How is it that they went from The Emoji Movie (2017) to actually making good movies? And not only that but they nailed the relatability aspects pretty well for me. If this trend that Spider-Verse started continues, then this could be a very bright future for this animation studio. This movie definitely gives me hope that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) wasn’t just a fluke. If they can continue to produce well written films consistently then they could eventually become the best animation studio around today. Whatever happens, this movie and Spider-Verse are definitely a step in the right direction. Seriously just put Phil Lord and Chris Miller in charge of everything. These guys know what they’re doing. Sony, more films like this please.
