    ★★★

    On the plus side:
    * Emma Stone'e husky voice
    * great Spiderman POV shots
    * Emma Stone'e husky voice
    * Rhys Ifans performance
    * the cops-to-lizard transformation was pretty cool
    * Emma Stone'e husky voice

    On the negative side:
    * some 3D CGI puppet fighting looked very fake
    * the movie as a whole is pretty redundant

    Why reboot a franchise after barely ten years? Well, the general cynicism of Hollywood to make big bucks, in a safe and predictable way

    We need more movies for grown-ups.

    I take a weird original story over any reboot / remake / MCU / whatyahavenot. The low tech science is compelling (like the calibration routine) and it has some nice visual effects such as a heart shaped puddle of blood. Also pulls a reverse Orphan Black in terms of acting.

    So much has been said and written, so let me just add that the movie features the cutest movie cat ever...

    Reminded me of "My Neighbor Totoro" with a similar focus on the young protagonists and their perception of the world, the presence of mystical but gentle and supportive creatures and their quest based on some tragic happenings with their mother. Unique style of animation. Simply wonderful.
