Roma is an Intimately Beautiful Masterpiece (Review)

Sometimes, the best cinematic stories are the simplest ones. They don’t have to have a moment that defines the movie that will be remembered for years to come. And they don’t necessarily have to have a character that will be shown as cinema’s most memorable ever. Sometimes, cinematic stories are as ordinary as the lives most of us live. However, at the same time, they can be just as rich and extraordinary as our own. Director Alfonso Cuarón’s latest feature is a simplistic masterclass in storytelling. It’s a personal story about love, courage, hope, change, and home. This is Roma.

Spectacular Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Spins a Whole New Kinetic Web (Review)

Spectacular Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Spins a Whole New Kinetic Web (Review)

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man not only remains the most popular Marvel superhero to date, but also feels like the most present superhero we see on our screens. With six solo movies and a couple of appearances in a few Marvel Cinematic Universe movies over the past 16 years, he’s always present in a landscape full of so many on-screen superheroes. We know the origin story, the powers, the villains, and the man behind the mask. But finally, we get a new take on Spider-Man in the new animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which shows us that anyone can wear the mask. In Spider-Verse, the one who wears the mask is Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore), a teenager and comic book favorite, often seen as the successor to the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker. Sure, it’s another origin story about someone taking on the responsibilities of being a superhero and knowing there are consequences with every action they take. However, Spider-Verse spins a whole new web on the origin story, one that’s so fresh, kinetic, funny, self-aware and just so awesome. It’s arguably the best Spider-Man movie ever made.
