Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse Discussion

Watched it last night. Go support this one folks. Do it for representation. Do it for animation. Do it for fun. Just watch it and let's discuss.


  • Completely agree. Went into this one with no expectations and walked away questioning if this is the best Spider-man movie I’ve ever seen. Great tone and pacing and some real heart. Very surprised and impressed by this one. 
  • went to see it today. Saw they were playing in the "4DX" theater and thought I'd try it out since I'd never done so and seemed like a good fit for the concept.

    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...

  • Literally the best Spider-Man movie. I loved it! And the soundtrack was bangin as well.

    Absolutely fantastic!
  • Took my kid to see it today. Good shit. Worth the watch.

    I'm going to try to get to this one with the boy sometime in the next week while I'm off work. It's a great year for Spiderman!
  • We took our son on Sunday and all thoroughly enjoyed the movie. My husband and I concur that this is the best Spider-Man movie yet. Our son said his favorite part was the new Doc Oc, which warmed the cockles of my heart. I don’t know about anyone else, but I got a little weepy At a few points, which may be a first for me watching a Marvel movie (except Logan, does that one count?)

    I agree that this is the best Spider-Man movie ever made. It's not really fair to compare it to the others, though, because this one builds on many of the previous films and comics in it's own extremely meta way.

    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 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.

    Yeah between this, Logan, Deadpool and The Dark Knight trilogy..it proves that creative freedom can produce some of the best stuff out. As much of a feat what Disney/Marvel have created, not everything needs to be a part of a huge cinematic universe. 
  • I really, really loved Homecoming, and didn’t expect this movie to live up to it. However, The Grinch was sold out and I was trying to do a movie with my parents. 

    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!!
  • I walked out of the theatre genuinely asking myself if this was the best Spider-man movie I had ever seen, which I realized spoke volumes about its originality, heart, and subject matter. 
  • Went into this not expecting much. Walked away thinking it was the best Spider-Man movie I’d ever seen. 
  • I certainly have it as the best Spider-Man movie too. And I'm usually very hesitant to ever place an animated film over live action (admittedly very unfair to animated movies), but what they do with the medium is so unique that I have no problem saying it is. 

    Hell, I actually think this movie is a masterpiece.

    I would commission a podcast on this movie. It was just so good, and would love to hear the guys talk about it.

    I need to see MIrai and Isle of Dogs, but otherwise this should win Best Animated Film. Also yes, the best Spiderman movie.

    Went to see this with the boy and I thought it was fantastic. I wish the timing would have worked out for J&A to cover this as a first-run bald movie. I'd love to hear a Bald Movies covering movies the guys watched over the holidays if it includes Spider-Man: ITSV

    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.

    I enjoyed the look of it and I like the into the spider-verse story in the comics quite a bit, but I thought this took a long, long time to get going into the main story.

    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.
