    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    Spiderverse

    This film is a perfect example of how you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. The animation may be simple, but it is still serviceable and a welcome nod to the comics of old. The movie shines with it's eloquent blend of humor and vivid characterization. The plot is admittedly predictable but that could be attributed more to the nature of superhero stories then to the fault of the writers. The movie wasn't afraid to take risks. Despite…

    A Silent Voice

    ★★★★★

    ★★½

    Great movie, if simply looking at the visuals and effects. However, Scorch Trials was severely disappointing in terms of story progression and pacing. Every "tense" moment was predictable and you never really felt like the main character was in much danger. I think the director lived up to his name and really dropped the Ball on this one. All in all, this movie gets a hard pass from me. Too many ambiguities and cliche moments make this installment a chore to watch. Not to mention there weren't even ANY mazes in this movie at all.
