Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

I watched this movie in theaters with my wife today and I enjoyed it.

Trailers: UglyDolls (2019). I think the name "Uglyville" is counter to the movie's message. | Wonder Park (2019). | The Kid Who Would Be King (2019). Different trailer. | Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019). Teaser with the bunny. | How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019). Different trailer. | The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (2019). (Ada goes pee during this trailer). | Overcomer (2019). Good trailer. | A Dog's Way Home (2019). Hmm... too much like Homeward Bound (Ada comes back during this trailer)


On 20190707, Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie a thumbs up.

Instant Comments:
I like the pixel comic style.
Spider bite
Leap of faith
I like the references to other "Spider-Man"s.
The fourth wall moments.
Not sure why I find his ability to pick up on being Spider-Man to be reasonable. Maybe they showed him struggle enough and that somehow finding himself is a sufficient obstacle to unlocking his control over his powers. In contrast, I complained about the short time it took Luke Fox to use the exosuit in Batman: Bad Blood (2016).
Ada asked a good question after the movie: "How can Kingpin defeat Spider-Man if he's just human?" [According to Wikipedia, although he has no superhuman powers, he's incredibly strong.]
