I recently saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in cinemas, in 3D.
If you have any appreciation for animation, I urge you to see this movie while it’s still in cinemas. The artistry of it blew me away.
I am so so happy that it won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film, because it absolutely deserves it! The animation and artistry of this film is incredible.
Just to give you an idea, I’m someone who usually has little interest in superhero movies and knows almost nothing about the Spiderman universe. This movie was funny, endearing, and totally took me along for the ride.
The animation in this film is inventive and groundbreaking. It’s a mix of 3D and 2D animation techniques, designed to look hand-crafted and give the movie a very unique “comic book” look. It’s like nothing I’ve seen before.
In fact, it took the animators one year just to get 10 seconds of footage they were happy with, before they progressed with the rest of the movie.
If you have no prior interest in Spiderman (like me), but you enjoy good storytelling, beautiful animation, and you have an eye for art and details, please check out this movie. It will exceed your expectations.
(Try to see it in 3D if you can, because the “comic book look” of the movie is designed with multiple layers, and it’s really worth seeing it.)
