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.

The Mummy: I loved 75% of it But The Best Milkshake in The World is Still No Good if 25% of it is Shit (Review)

Oh The Mummy.  When Brendan Fraser did it in 1999, it was a wonderfully camp, kinda horror kinda action thing.  This The Mummy is something else.  I was expecting to hate the new The Mummy.  Flashy high budget remakes never work out well unless they’re musicals with Emma Watson.   But I’m here to tell you I actually fully flat-out loved about 75% of it.  It was beautiful, the design was lovely, it was beautifully shot, the stunts were amazing and I loved the CGI, it seemed to work well.  Of course, it wasn’t enough – the best milkshake in the world is still no good if 25% of it is shit.    Read more
