With great animation comes great responsibility! Into the Spider-verse is not only one of the most solid comic adaptations of our friendly neighborhood Spiderman, but it is also a fresh take on the classic animated movie. The writers and directors Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey took several iterations of one of the most beloved superhero's of all time and meshed them together into one seamless web-slinging adventure that left people wishing the movie could have lasted just a little while longer. Couple all of this with great voice acting performances by Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, John Mulaney, Kimiko Glenn, and Nicolas Cage and you have the makings of the animated film of the year (Golden Globes). The only fault in the movie (if you can even call it that) is that the creators seemed to feel the need to remind you that their animation was unique and different by using blurs or an over abundance of strobes, this to me acted as more of a distraction than anything else, however not enough of a distraction to take away from how great the film is. If you have not had the pleasure of going to see Spider-verse on the big screen yet, do yourself a favor and go see it at a Phoenix Theaters - https://www.phoenixmovies.net (or your local theater chain) and be on the look out for Stan the Man Lee in the flick...
