Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ★★★★½

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that this movie exists. A big-name studio made and released this movie.  It wasn’t a 2-hour dream that my 9-year old self had. It was a real movie that my eyes and ears experienced.

It’s everything you want it to be and more. I could talk about this forever, but there’s really no point. Go and see it. The action is exhilarating, the comedy is hilarious, the characters are engaging and sympathetic, the references and callbacks never feel forced, and the visual style is incredibly inventive and refreshing. On top of everything, the overall theme of “anyone can be Spider-Man” is empowering and progressive without bogging the film down in the slightest, which is a truly astounding feat for a comic book movie and an excellent message for the kids of today.

Honestly, what more could you ask for in a Spider-Man movie?
