Whoo boy. Do I have a review for you. I’m likely going to spend the next thousand words gushing about how epic this movie was and how it exceeded all expectations. Like, this would forever be the gold standard of superhero movies and I honestly don’t know how Marvel Studios, or really, anyone, can top this. So let’s just get right into it.
This won’t spoil the ending, but will contain spoilers nonetheless. Deaths and the like will be omitted, but I will mention the big battle at the end. Just a heads up.

Spider-Man’s had a troubling history when it comes to cinema. The friendly neighborhood hero hasn’t had a breakout hit, even with his entry into the MCU, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the upcoming sequel Far From Home. Even with Venom, which I reviewed already, had its fair share of problems that made it difficult for Sony to bounce back. I was cautiously optimistic when they announced the Spider-verse movie that I was hesitant about seeing it since most trailers can look awesome but the films themselves are not worth the effort.
So when I heard that Spider-verse was getting good reviews, I wanted to see for myself. Sure enough, I had a fun time. So let’s get into it and see where these worlds take us.

I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and how they made superhero movies a viable genre, so much so that people are discussing Black Panther getting an Oscar nomination. Before that, superhero movies were either campy, mediocre, or downright terrible. Granted, there are still films made today that aren’t under the MCU banner that have varying reception. And even before Spider-Man Homecoming, there was a reboot of the Spider-Man series that didn’t go over too well. In that vein, came one of Spider-Man’s iconic rivals. Venom.
When the trailer for this launched, it excluded the title character to keep the mystery. Since then, he’s become somewhat of a question mark and people try to figure out what role it had in the film. Now that the film’s out, I figured I’d at least check it out. So, let’s see how this goes down. Continue reading “Venom Review”

It’s been a long time coming. Ten years later, we get what may be the biggest move the MCU has even made, and possibly the most ambitious project the studio has done.
