    A touchingly sensitive film, which will probably go up in my estimation on rewatch.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    I kinda feel a bit weird giving an animated Spider-man film 4 and a half stars, but yet... it's like Paddington 2, I cannot tell you a thing that it did wrong. It was funny, well-paced, looked absolutely beautiful, had John Mulaney playing Spider-Ham, and *that* post-credits scene. I didn't even lose interest in the third act action sequences. Bravo.

    "A mother and a daughter - what a terrible combination"

    What a film to end a year on. Absolutely stellar performances from Ingrid Bergman and Liv Ullmann, some of Ingmar Bergman's finest direction and most emotionally hard-hitting dialogue. How spectacular.
