    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse


    Visually phenomenal. Takes the already spectacular visual identity of the original and experiments with it further. It's unleashed with clashing art-styles and a license to stage scenes in so many interesting ways in terms of the use of colour.

    Not just that, but the settings used for this are show-stoppers, it's a wonder. The Mumbai-Manhattan combo? Insane. The future world and culmination of a set-piece taking place on a rocket ship to the moon??? Clearly everyone making this was having…

    I don't have too much good to specifically say about this film, but overall it does function as a decent blockbuster. It has its exciting moments and the core plot is interesting and mostly engaging. There's a few decent mindless action scenes as well. Hugo…
