Can they swing from a thread?
No they can’t, they’re Hollywood filmmakers.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse: My “Reel Faith” review.
What I can tell you at this point about Across the Spider-Verse is that I want to see it about ten more times.
Particularly striking to me, and even moving, is a theme connecting Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (though not The Lego Movie): how themes of father–son conflict ubiquitous in other cartoons play out with unexpectedly insightful, consequential fathers.
Here, at last, is the Spidey that family audiences need and the Spidey they deserve — and that’s just two of them!
All good things must come to an end, but “The Spectacular Spider-Man” ended too quickly, after only two seasons. In April 2010 Marvel pulled the plug on the acclaimed but long-stalled series, leaving the season 2 finale as the satisfying but not fully resolved series climax.
