Okay, conceptually and visually, I'm sold. Really dig the jagged, dropped frames animation. Whatever you call that style.

gotta be a holdover from lord and miller’s work on the lego movie, right? looks fantastic here though, super-distinctive

also i wonder if they’re introducing the spider-verse here so they can keep their options open for introducing a live-action miles to the mcu further down the line

I don't want to start a new thread every time Sony comes up with a dumb new Spider-spinoff, so...hey, guys! They're making a Silk movie! And if you find yourself asking 'who the hell is Silk?', well, just wait until the general public gets wind of this announcement!

This is seriously one of the dumbest of the dumb ideas. I like the character fine but she's been around for all of like three years and I don't know if she's that well-known or popular. Oh, and her series was cancelled last year, so...

Cage:

There are multiple Spider-Men in different dimensions that are kind of colliding together. My character's Spider-Man Noir. He's really Peter Parker from the '30s. I tried to channel those noir films with (Humphrey) Bogart, and have those kinds of sounds that he might make with (James) Cagney, or Edward G. Robinson, that kind of way of talking. I tried to give the character that. It was a lot of fun. I think it should be quite funny. The movie definitely has a sense of humor, and that's a good thing because it's good for the whole family.

This looks fun and probably miles better than the Bendis comics

I guess the one upside of superhero movie saturation is that audiences don't need to be told the same origin story over and again now, and they can do more... comic-booky stories, I guess?

NB I'm pretending Venom doesn't exist for the sake of that argument

Friend who's seen it specifically agreed with this sentence:

This movie is what would happen if you took all the action and complex plots from the live-action Marvel movies, added the heart, humor and relatability of a Pixar film, with all of the dialogue by the staff writers of Atlanta.

Seen some promo thing about Peter Parker forgetting how awesome it is to be Spiderman. Having a girlfriend killed, being tortured, buried alive, having an eye plucked out, briefly becoming a villain+murderer, your identity and lifespan in doubt, becoming a wife beater and Joe Quezada trying to destroy your marriage will do that to a guy.

This was terrific. Now that almost any superhero concept can be done live-action, it was great to see a smart film that really had to be an animated film.

Really liked this - and I have no previous interest in Spider-Man. The animation was spectacular and the colours often very beautiful, and the humour was fast and effective. Definitely worth seeing at the cinema.

Luna Schlosser, Sunday, 16 December 2018 06:22 (two months ago) Permalink

Yep, excellent film. Takes full advantage of the medium and truly feels like a comic book on the screen. I saw Aquaman the night before which was such an inept mess comparatively

Vinnie, Sunday, 16 December 2018 07:17 (two months ago) Permalink

Enjoyed this. Great fun.
Liked the end graphics too. Very trippy.

& it does have an end of credits scene which I didn't quite get the context of.

BUt great fun, is it going to get sequels do you think?

A whole Marvel Noir film, & what else came out around the same time that series first did? Was it just the Mayflower one too?
Could see some mileage in the first, less in the latter.

But Miles is set up now.
Everybody else there had a previous incarnation in comics i think. Not sure about Spider girl or was that in a What If?
Not come across the Sp//dr and Peni Parker thing before though.

All of them come from the comics.

I was confused about something (spoilers?) .....

So Miles lives in a world where there already is a Spider-man, but then he gets bit by a *different* radioactive spider that's been wandering around? Where did the other spider come from? Nbd, I loved this, just was a bit confused.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:03 (two months ago) Permalink

For those who might not be aware, Spider-Verse was an event in the comics a couple years back which mashed together literally every incarnation of Spider-Man that ever existed, including all of the variations from the comics as well as, for instance, the one from the '67 Bakshi cartoon and the one from the Electric Company and the one from the Japanese show where he piloted a giant robot. It was kinda nuts and surprisingly more fun than disastrous.

Home Despot (Old Lunch), Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:09 (two months ago) Permalink

(I can't speak to the movie I haven't seen yet, but in the Ultimate comics there was a Peter Parker Spider-Man who died and then, yes, Miles was later bitten by a different spider and became Spider-Man Mk II.)

Home Despot (Old Lunch), Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:12 (two months ago) Permalink

This was fantastic - visually stunning, funny, sweet and practically bursting with ideas.

I watched this followed right after by Aquaman, which was such a letdown in comparison.

re the post credits scene: it (and pretty much the whole movie tbh) is a riff on this classic internet meme.

Roz, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:31 (two months ago) Permalink

xpost Which is sort of what happens here. But where did the other spider come from, years after Peter Parker was first bitten? I thought the first spider was a one-off.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:32 (two months ago) Permalink

I thought all of the ending credits were tons of fun.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:33 (two months ago) Permalink

In the comics, some scientist was trying to reverse engineer Spidey's powers after his death and Miles was bitten by one of those experimental spiders. Guessing they probably didn't want to delve too deeply into the whole 'harvesting hero corpses for their superhuman abilities' thing in this film and just left it at 'hey look, another spider'.

Home Despot (Old Lunch), Sunday, 16 December 2018 17:48 (two months ago) Permalink

I think I was wondering more about the bit leading up to that photo. In the internet meme like.

What a great, great film, can't say anything more than others have already. And man that design sense throughout, with the offprinted color suggestions and the like.

the one from the Japanese show where he piloted a giant robot.
― Home Despot (Old Lunch), Sunday, December 16, 2018 5:09 PM

Is she really anything like that version of Spiderman? Wasn't that Spiderman a bit like the classic version, but just riding a huge robot?

Apparently there are 5 Japanese versions. I like to refer to the Ono/Ikegami/Hirai version as "the masturbating Spiderman that Marvel will never fully reprint". Apparently some Japanese readers much prefer this version. Even Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma, Urusei Yatsura, Inuyasha) said the American original was "too light hearted for my taste".

Ok in addition to being a good movie, this is undoubtedly the greatest technical achievement in computer animation to date.

Took my four year old to see this before christmas not expecting too much but holy fucking shit did I love this. Enough that I saw it again on New Years Day; I don't remember the last time I saw a movie twice in a theater - honestly it might have been Back To The Future or the Phantom Menace (in an attempt to see if it really was that bad).

Everything about this was great, even for me with little to no comic book / spiderman literacy. And Doc Ock (prior to the reveal) was the biggest laugh for me as she felt like a dead-on composite of a bunch of STEM academics I know or have had interactions with.

she reminded me of the 'nerd' character on Orphan Black

I loved this movie so much, Doc Ock was legitimately terrifying and her demise was wonderful.

Three times in my life have I been in a movie theatre and seen something so funny that my entire body seized up in a static form of hysterical laughter. The first was age 10 when Bob Hoskins yells "Ooga Booga" at the bouncer in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit". The second was Jonah Hill wiping out on a side-view mirror in Superbad. The third was the moment when Aunt May is looking around her house at the various fight scenes, and frames appear 1-2-3-4 of tussling, and the final fourth frame is of Spider-Ham smashing one of Aunt May's plates over his own head. One of the funniest gags I've ever seen tbh

Well, a case could be made that his relationship with his father *is* good, but it's the imposition of spider-problems that, for the first time and for a few different reasons, cuts off the line of communication in a healthy relationship. The movie could be seen as his (Miles) struggle to retain his identity when fate is forcing him to be someone he's not. He spends the entire time more or less getting Spider-splained, right up until that scene when he is literally tied and gagged, and it's only the final ignominy of being unable (literally, not figuratively) to speak with his dad that forces him to become his own Spider-man. That is, a Spider-man that above all else wants to keep it *real* - with Brooklyn, tagging, his school, his cool uncle, a dad who is spider-man dubious - while fighting against the forces trying to make it unreal (superpowers).
