Looks like a parody
Watched the trailer this weekend. One lame joke after another.share
Do not agree with the lame part whatsoever. A parody? Sure it looks like a cleverly self-aware superhero movie that’ll be packed with references to the comics/Spider-Man universe. But, this screams fun and works when done right. Moreover, based on all the clips and trailers it seems like the movie is going to be equally humorous and heartfelt. And above all, it looks like an actual comic book come to life - the animation is crazy unique.
The movie is already receiving tons of early praise, so I’m hyped.
Just expressing my opinion on the trailer. I really hope I'm wrong about my assessment and that it does well.share
Understood. At the end of the day, all of this is of course subjective.
That said, it would be putting it mildly to say Into the Spider-Verse is being critically acclaimed. It’s currently the best reviewed animated film of the year + superhero and Spider-Man film. It’s getting praised for pretty much every reason you can think of. Surely not everyone (who isn’t a critic) will go gaga over it, but safe to say this movie is a winner.
It's just the usual empty Marvel hype.
This is far from the best animated film of the year. It just has the biggest advertising campaign behind it.
I guess we'll find out soon enough.share
You're talking out your ass. The "usual Marvel hype" applies to the MCU fan nuts. People WANT to hate Sony Marvel after their dissapointments.
Nope. No conspiracies needed here. It's universally praised because it's a good movie. And that's all there is to it.
this movie is a miracle.
i can't stop myself from rhapsodizing over its greatness to anyone who will listen.
it's my favourite of the 116 films i've seen that were released in 2018.

Quite interesting how modern diversity/feminist left sounds more like a new religion each and every day.
That sentence just needed some 'amen, we praise you, oh diversity' at the end to feel complete. ^^
a big yeesh to this post.
my love for this film has nothing to do with any silly devotion to diversity or feminism or intersectionality or any other culty leftism you could name.
not that i should even have to say such a thing, but i am a friedman/sowell right libertarian with most of the thoughts & beliefs you'd expect a person like that to hold.
into the spider-verse has the most stunning animation i've ever seen in a widely released film, & it is a true movie - funny, exciting, but very human & surprisingly touching at times. i've seen it three times, & i'll probably go in for a 4th this coming weekend.
you are entitled to your preferences, but to me this is, along with paddington 2, the best mid-to-large budget widely released film of 2018.
you sound like quite a peach.
merry christmas to you, regardless.
I love the script, the acting, and the editing. But I hate the animation, so it’s weird to me to see people single that out for praise.share
well, we are all entitled to our preferences of course, but i think the animation in this film is nothing short of astonishing. it feels so fresh & so unlike anything i've seen. and as a guy who was a massive comic collector as a teen, i think this is the best representation of a comic book world that we've ever seen on film, live action or animated.
and in it's ending, i think the film-makers achieved the kind of acid trip delirium that's only been hinted at in the past. film-makers have been trying to create the cinematic equivalent to an acid trip for decades. 2001, el topo, fear & loathing all took good swings at portraying the ego-destroying hallucinatory acid trip vision. to this point, i think enter the void was the film that captured it best. at moments, particularly at the end, an animated spiderman movie surpassed it. at times i was reminded of some of the more spectral trips i took when i built my own version of brion gysin's dream machine.
i hate to use this over-applied word, but i think the animation in this film is flat out visionary. and completely exquisite to experience.
if it was only that, it would still be one of the most special, distinctive films of the year. but it's a genuine film - it's funny and sweet & just bursting with heart. i think it's perfect.
I truly can’t think of a better animated movie of the year. Can you name a few?share
