I’m so late on this and I’m sure y’all are tired of me talking about school by now, so let’s just get started.
Miles Morales is a regular kid, at least he used to be. Until he was bitten by a radioactive spider, but it doesn’t end there. Miles Morales may be the newest Spider-Man, but that doesn’t mean he’s the only Spider-Man. There’s a glitch in Brooklyn and now there are multiple spider people, including a spider pig. Will the rag tag team be able to take down the villain and get back to each of their Brooklyns?
I’m so happy I finally got around to seeing this movie. I don’t go to the theater too often, but I had to for this one. I read Miles Morales: Spider-Man by Jason Reynolds (one of my favorite authors) last year and it was really good.
Twenty minutes into the movie, I thought I was in the wrong theater. I honestly thought it was a 3D film and they just forgot to give me the glasses. The art style was AMAZING. I’ve loved cartoons since I was little (I even wanted to be a cartoonist at one point) and I can honestly say, I’ve never seen anything in a style like this. It was super cool!
The representation was definitely on point. I was so excited for a black Spider-Man, especially since I really want to get into the comics. The fact that the Sony contract to Disney dictates that live-action Spider-Man has to be caucasion and heterosexual is just ridiculous. I’m excited to see the future of animated Spider-Man.
All in all, it was a great movie and I think everyone should go see it! Whether you’re super into comics, art, or just looking for something fun to pass the time, this is a movie for all ages.
