Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 4/4

 
PROS –
1) Visually one of the best super-hero movie. The third-act was psychedelic and trippy. The animation quality raised the bar too high for any future super-hero animation movie.
2) The plot follows King-Pin employing lady Doc Ock to resurrect his dead family by some particle collider. The experiment causes different versions of Spider-Man to appear in the same primary timeline. Out of all the dimensions, Peter B. Parker storyline and character was most interesting.
3) The Prowler is the Ebony Maw of this movie.
4) Sunflower (Post Malone and Swae Lee song)

 

CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
Stan: That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero.

Captain Dickson: That’s you, man. Don’t do it. Keep that dirty dick inside your pants. Don’t fuck no students, don’t fuck no teachers…

Schmidt: Sir, I know we may look like a couple of lady-killers, but me and my partner will be super professional…

Captain Dickson: Clearly I wasn’t talking to you, big-titties. You cherub-looking motherfucker. I was talking to your partner, fake-ass Handsome McGee here. When I’m talking to him, I’m talking to him. When I say “shut the fuck up,” I’m talking to you.
