This is easily the best animated movie of the year and probably one of the best allround movies of the year period. This singlehandedly makes the case for Disney not owning Spider-Man because I cannot imagine them making this movie.
Big mistake. It was like a super annoying theme park ride that went for 2.5 hours instead of 2.5 minutes. Most of the time I'm thinking "FFS, I just want to enjoy the movie"
But yeah, was a great flick. Will wait to watch again in my own home theater...
Also, I think this might now be one of my favorite animated films. Everything in this movie just oozes style, and the pacing, humor, and characterization are all top notch.
This movie was amazing, the style was such a departure; I’m thrilled they went a direction I’ve never seen in a Marvel movie before. At every step I kept thinking it was about to get dumb, but it just kept getting better.
Loved the twists, such a better movie than I expected!!
Hell, I actually think this movie is a masterpiece.
The animation was really the highlight for me. The movie really leaned into taking advantage of the medium and doing things that would be difficult in live action. Even during the final battle, I never felt like I didn't know where things were spatially or confused about where characters were in relation to each other. It didn't just feel like a comic book, it felt like an improvement on comic books.
I didn't get out to see a lot of movies this year, but this was the best one I can remember seeing in a long time.
Maybe I already know all the origin stuff so my foot was tapping because I'm ready for the main thrust of the story to get going, but I did get bored after the beginning action set piece was over.
I'll never complain about Spider-Ham being in something, that's a fun character. Easily the best Marvel animated project they've ever put out in any format.
