Man I got to say this movie was rather unique, and wow it's certainly up there for one of the best movies of the year.  Hell, I'd even say it's one of the best animated  films of all time. 

 

 

Sony certainly surprised me in the best possible way, and for the first time it has made me become a fan of Miles Morales.  The movie itself makes you has a lot of enjoy, adventure, and feels that just hit you in the right places, and man the possibilities this movie has for the future are huge.  Spider-Gwen  and Peter Parker as individual characters really stood out, and the inclusion of Penni Parker, Noir Spider-Man, and Spider-Ham were just awesome. There's a lot I could talk about with the movie, but I don't wanna spoil anything.

Haven't seen it yet but may take my two(He'll turn three on Wednesday) year old Nephew to see it. Did you play PS4 Spider-Man?

I saw this 2 weeks ago in a preview screening. It was good. Now, I watched Spider-Man (2017 series) on Disney XD, and I liked Miles in that series. This movie, I enjoyed his character even more. Same goes for Spider-Gwen.

 

The only downside in my opinion was they should've added Anya (Spider-Girl) in the movie as well.

It's best Anya wasn't there. This movie had a lot to get through as it was. She would have ended up a background character. I'm amazed it managed to do as much with the other four Spiders as it did, given how late in the movie three of them showed up. Really hoping we see a lot more of Noir and Peni in the sequel. They were real standouts despite only coming in the second half.

 

They have said they're doing a spin-off focused on Spider-Women, though, so there's a decent chance she could pop up there.

 

So, I actually just saw this last night. It's in the top three Spider-Man movies, animated or live action. Granted, that's not... you know, super hard, considering the only real competition it has with me is the first Raimi Spider-Man and Homecoming, but even if there were more high quality Spider-Man films I think it would still be up top, fighting with Homecoming.

 

I was actually rather impressed with how much they got done with two hours. The movie has Spider-Verse as a theme, but it's really more of an origin movie for Miles Morales mixed with an adaptation of the "Spider-Men" miniseries. It's pretty comprehensive, too. It hits all the beats of Miles origin story, including his parents and his Uncle Aaron's double life, which I wasn't sure how they'd do going in, given there are other Spider characters to introduce. It even gives a kind of close to the Raimi Spider-Man trilogy.

 

The rest of the Spiders are great, too. Peni, Spider-Ham and Noir are only in the second half of the movie, but they make the most of their limited space. Peni is utterly adorable and gives the most amazing side-eye. Noirs running joke of being dumbfounded by color and old timey dialogue is fun. Spider-Ham's... well, I mean, you know what to expect, right? He's Captain Carrot; a cartoon with cartoon physics and cartoon jokes transplanted into something a little less Looney Tunes.

 

Surprisingly, Spider-Gwen is the one I felt fell a little flat, which is surprising because she's at least a presence in the entire movie, even if she too doesn't reveal herself as a Spider until the second half. Aside from subtle stuff like some glances at Peter - they kept the "her best friend Peter Parker died after he became the Lizard" thing from her comic origin, so she clearly carries guilt over him - I felt like she was the one Spider who didn't really have her own "thing" or major differentiator aside from her cool introductory Big Damn Heroes and minor flirting with Miles. I didn't occasionally space where she was or what she was doing like sometimes happened with Spider-Ham, but I thought she was going to stand out the most and to my surprise she felt a bit more like "just another voice in the room to give off dialogue". Even Aunt May felt like she stood out. It might just be me that felt that way. She'll get her own spotlight in that Spider-Women spin-off they've greenlit and they're already looking at a Spider-Verse sequel, so it's not a big deal anyway. This is Miles movie, really. Well, his and Hobo Peter Parkers. I'm surprised more of the others didn't fade to the back. More time for the rest next go around.

 

I enjoyed how tightly plotted the film was, too. For a two hour movie, there wasn't really any waste. Even small jokes they didn't have to call back to come around in the climax. They figured out a way to tie multiverse shenanigans in without going too huge with it, as well (the actual Spider-Verse plot from the comics would not have worked, given the ridiculous cast of characters, and the reality of setting up Morlun, his family and the actual Spider-Verse is too much for a film that also needs to act as an origin story).

 

Side note: Nicolas Cage is having a good superhero year. Superman and a Spider-Man in the same year. Not bad.

 

Anyway, definitely go see it. Well, well worth the money.

I watched it Yesterday and I enjoyed the kitten out of it!!!!! not much really to say because there wasn't much that I DID NOT love, and I look forward to the sequel already

 

Oh right if there is one slight problem I did have with it, it's that I find Miles did not wear his proper spider suit, untill the last what maybe 15-20 minutes of the movie. and it is only a slight problem with me and does not deter me from seeing the movie's quality at all :no:

Yeah, I was a bit surprised at that too. I kept wondering when it was going to happen. On the upside, though, he was a great "hell yeah" moment when he finally had it.
