    I loved the movie the only thing i did not like that much and that missed the mark with me was the "sitting back there ". The offset thing distracted me quite alot. Saying that though i could listen to them explain the magic for hours !

    this movie is Sony's redemption arc

  • Michele abramo Puricelli

    You can really see Alberto Mielgo imprint in the all artistic choices here, although has not being mentioned as one of the creators(only as consultant I guess). He was one the main guy behind the ideas...we know that anyway.

    Into the Spiderverse has taken the place of being one of my favorite movies of all time. I really love the characters, the story, the music, the setting, and just the overall feel of this universe and world they've created. What I love the most though, is the beautiful animation and art style they created. It really feels like an animated comic book and really pays tribute to comics as a whole. I just marvel at everything this movie has to offer and really blew us all out of the ball park.

  • Diego Sanchez Escobar

    People always try to disguise their lack of talent with an over the top style, but this is like if you took someome like that but made them actually talented. Like a crazy kid with lots of money and a great vision.

    What an amazing moment in history of animation. Pure innovation here! Btw, the best spiderman movie experience.

  • Tiago Santos
    Tiago Santos 7 days ago

    This type of animation does have its perks, but i dont think its quite there yet, it looks choppy in a lot of places, its just not fluid enough, and they come up with all these artistical excuses as to why they did it that way, but its just not as smooth as straight up CGI, but when its static? Its phenomenal.. But theres a lot of "static shots" and when the action pumps up it seems like its running at 15 fps or so..

    The timing connecting the perfect Peter Parker's Death to a Stan Lee cameo where he tells that "he was his favorite" just bring me to tears everytime. One of my favorite movies.

    FINALLY! animators that understand and respect comic books esp. the homage to Jack Kirby. This movie was beyond awesome and had me shook, it did deserve the Oscar and more. I'm looking forward to more groundbreaking Sony Animation.

    by twos and ones do they mean the background is "24 fps" and the characters are basically "12 fps"? a lot of people thought this movie was just 12, but this really does add a unique dynamic
