January is my birthday month, so I decided that I would try and do something quite unique and special for this milestone in my life. I will be turning 46, so I decided to watch 47 (46+1 for good luck) of my all time favorite movies in a random order over the course of this month. I have reviewed every one of these films already, but I will now give new perspectives on them all. Every one of these films received a 10/10 scoring from me. Some of these reviews will contain spoilers so if you have never seen them before, I recommend that you read some of my previous reviews of the film that were spoiler free before reading on…
Hope you enjoy!
This is film #16 of the 47.
Let’s continue with… Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse (2018)
Initial Viewing Memories – After this film garnered lots of acclaim last year including a Golden Globe win for Best Animated Feature, I made sure to see it during opening week and wasn’t disappointed at all.
“Every choice that we make would create countless other possibilities.” – Doc Ock
Number of Times Seen – 4 (8 Jan 2019, 21 Mar 2019, 1 Jul 2019 and 11 Jan 2020)
Brief Synopsis – A gifted high school student is bitten by a radioactive spider and contracts super human powers and must try and come to terms with his new abilities.
My Take on it – Excellent addition to the superhero genre that is fresh and original in all that it does.
This film is able to use a mixture of animation styles so well and integrate them together in order to give us a very unique look and feel for this film.
The story on the surface is a typical Spider-Man tale yet it presents a few nice twists along the way that raise the level of the story quite high.
The characters are developed quite well and they manage to give each of them a nice backstory and personal mission or quest that works really well in making things even more poignant.
The voice cast is chosen superbly and they allow us to really care for these characters as things move along.
Love the way that this film manages to create a great story for these characters to all work together as a team in order to get their job done.
They do a wonderful job showing the similarities and differences between the various incarnations of Spider-Man from multiple universes and allows us to see how much potential the character truly has on so many levels.
I’d love to see these characters joined together again for a new adventure.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Phil Lord and Christopher Miller had a goal for the movie: “Inspire young people to become heroes. Inspire grown-ups to help them do it. And remind us all that you don’t need to be bitten by a radioactive spider to do your part. You are powerful, and we are counting on you.” (From IMDB)
Rating – Oscar Worthy (10/10) (no change from original review)
