best animated movie 2018

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is Excellent

Spiderverse Movie

My idea of a fun Sunday afternoon was not go to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, because animated and action movies are not usually number one on my list of movies to see. I initially suggested snorkeling at Honokohau. However, it’s a movie my husband wanted to see, and while I hate to say he is right about things at times, sometimes he is on to something.

In fact, when it comes to movies, he is almost always right about which movie I will enjoy. We’re pretty much on the same page about movies.

The animation in the movie will make you forget that these are not real people in front of you. They seem real. Like Avatar seemed real, even though the people were mythical. When I say real people, I mean I know Spider-Man cannot really climb up walls or zip about New York City flying from building top to building top. But it sucks you in.

Although, when I read the movie description in the Regal app, it provided a warning about how people prone to epileptic seizures might die or have an attack from the graphics and photos. But that’s only if you are are an epileptic, I think. I took my chances on death.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was entertaining and it pulled me in to the storyline from the beginning to the end. You don’t have to be a Spider-fanatic to appreciate the movie, but die-hard Spider-Man fans will get more of the insider jokes.

Great cast, too. Jake Johnson and Lily Tomlin and even Nicholas Cage. Of course, the guy who stole the show was Shameik Moore who played the new Spider-Man. Go see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and be swept away to an alternate universe for a few hours.
