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

Lately, watching movies has felt like I’m just going through the motions. I continue to watch movies because that’s what I’ve always done. I’ve seen some good movies this year but nothing that reminded me of why I love watching movies in the first place. Not sure when but I lost the joy of watching movies. I was lukewarm on this one when it first came out. I wasn’t expecting much on this rewatch. I certainly wasn’t expecting to be whisked away on such a vibrant adventure. I remembered everything but it felt like I was watching it for the first time. It’s colorful, funny, sweet, heartbreaking, and inspiring. But above all it was pure joy. I felt the love and joy for cinema again. I cried.
