  • Let us leave a comment once last time….what I love about this movie is it’s depth. It’s the ultimate story coupled with groundbreaking art, an amazing soundtrack, hilarious comedy, all wrapped in a spider-blanket we grew up with. This is a Spider-Man movie that will last long after the others have passed, because it is the Ultimate Spider-Man.

  • It took me like ten viewings of this movie to understand what's happening with Peni Parker in the climax. Yes her spider buddy survives, but there's actually another character there - the robot that her father created, and the robot does die. I'm sorry but I really wish they'd gotten rid of spider pig. Noir and Peni and Gwen deserved a little more screen time.

  • Hey Hulk I'm an enormous fan of yours and am both impressed and intimidated by your understanding of filmmaking. One of the things that caught my eye in this video was the "storywheel" you show at 53:33. The idea of breaking a story apart like that has never occured to me and I just wanted to know if that style of outlining is a common technique, and if it is is there any chance you'd consider doing a video on this process?

  • i, too, was born in '91. i felt that clip so well & as for the video, it made me appreciate this masterpiece of a film so much more. i draw as a hobby & this film sparked an inspiration for me to start again, after not doing so for quite some time due to depression & things i'd rather not get into through a comment. i love SO many things about this film - but the fact that, it inspired me to start drawing again, really helped me & for that, it means that much more. i eventually would love to get into voice acting or something along those lines one day. maybe, just maybe, i'll see if i can't make that happen. for now, i want to thank you for such a stellar, fantastic video. you've gained a new subscriber & thanks for reading this, whoever does. remember, you're loved.

  • If you notice it’s not a direct representation of the Sam Raimi Spiderman movies as in this film Mary Jane is hanging upside down during their kiss rather than Spiderman and when the car is going to come through the window Peter punches it away rather than grabbing maryjane and spinning with her away from the collision. It’s almost like this representation is one or two universes away from ours. I love this video though I’ve probably seen your break down like five times

  • I love this movie for many reasons, but the biggest one is Peter, B Parker, who I will refer to as Ben. And just to warn you, this tangent will be fairly long It's complicated but ill try to explain it as best I can. Comic fans, and movie fans know spiderman as two different people. To people who just watch the movies, spiderman is a fun, happy, young man who fights crime while making funny quips and jokes. But us comic fans... we know him as someone else If your familiar with "One More Day" than you know what I'm about to talk about. People who keep up with the comics, and the continuing universe therein, know spiderman more. Comic readers grew up with him as that same quirky, funny hero, but he's evolved since then. In the comics, spiderman has grown up, got a divorce, and lost his aunt may. And it's truly heartbreaking what happened to this once beloved character. In the movie, the Peter Parker from miles' dimension represents the one that most people know. He's funny, kind, and willing to give miles a chance. Ben Parker is the spiderman we grew up with. He's the spiderman who used to be witty and charming, but has been broken by the traumatic experiences he's gone through. The writers behind "Into the Spider-Verse" knew this when writing Ben Parker. Their goal was to take this character who we used to love, and redeem him. Take the character who had his life ruined by writers trying to be edgy and dark, and remind us of how we used to love him and want to succeed. And it genuinely made me cry the first time I watched this movie. To many people (myself included) the spiderman from the comics that we grew up with was dead to us. Spiderman had a job as a collage professor, a good marriage to the woman he loved, and two children. But when aunt may became fatally ill, he made a deal with mathysto to give up all of that to save her. This movie shows him regretting those decisions, and by the end of the movie, we are reminded of why we used to love him.

  • Fun fact: I first watched this movie in the theater opening week and when Uncle Aaron died I laughed. Not because I’m heartless or it was funny, it was a parallel to Uncle Ben dieing. It was because I didn’t see it coming and it was such a important thing and core thing to the Spider-person blueprint and is to important to making the Spider-person, and I didn’t see it coming. That made me outright laugh in the middle of a very emotional moment in a very pact theater that got me weird looks. Thought I should share that.

  • The naming of Miles dad completely slipped Brian Michael Bindis’ mind 🙄🙄🙄. He knew he could’ve done better and didn’t try. He also had his dad be a shield agent in the comics which is... some choice. I’m glad the writers made do with the material they had.

  • IN A WORLD ... where 90% of super hero movies are origin stories, where every new incarnation of a super hero on the silver screen starts with an origin story movie and rarely gets a sequel, in that world, origin stories are boring. And not just boring, they are frightening. They are something we don't want to see again (and again and again), but we very well know that there won't be a followup movie if we don't flock into the cinemas in great numbers. This is what makes the MCU so great. We are now free to skip an origin story movie if we're not interested. That won't kill that series only for a new origin story to come out 10 years later. And still SMITSV makes an origin story work. Many factors here; for one this is not just an origin story. Of the spider-people who have a major story arc in here, only one has an origin story. It is the overarching arc in the movie, but it doesn't stand alone. It comes at the heel of a "death of spiderman" story that breaks all the old moulds. There's no resurrection, no undoing. And it runs in lockstep with Peter B's redmption story. And it also isn't the same old story that has been told a thousand times. This movie would not have worked with another Peter instead of Miles. And then there's the promise that drew us into the cinema. Not one of an origin story, but one of a visual trip like we never saw before. And the bold move to do a story that many would call too complicated, too nerdy, etc. to be suitable for a general audience. "Multi-Verse? We don't do poetry." Mainstream is best served with "boy meets girl" stories every brain-dead monkey can understand---that is how movie studios have treated us for the longest time. Complicated concepts have only been McGuffins, with no expectation of the audience to understand them. A black box that only exists in on-screen explanations.

  • I only have one issue with this movie besides this it's perfect after Peter B Parker ties him up and Miles shocks his way out of the webs somehow he instantly is basically a full-fledged Spider-Man and knows how to do everything he starts swinging and doing tricks like a god but the last time we seen him swinging he was struggling and could barely even swing and then when we get to the climactic battle he knows how to climb walls and use his powers perfectly which we also seeing him struggling with in the previous scene it's just all so fast that he knows how to do everything instantly also how did he instantly learn how to fight like a god at the climactic Battle as well like this man went from a casual yeah I know how to throw a right hook left hook and maybe a little sidekick too full on Spider-Man mode with acrobatic Moves and just knowing how to fight and ending up beating Kingpin and how did he learn how to use his Venom power so fast it just feels like towards the end they were getting rushed and Miles became a God after that one scene.

Neat! 38:44 Miles witnessed the death of his universe's Spiderman, destroyed a goober by accident while trying out his powers, and can't control his powers well yet. He can't just "man up" in a matter of milliseconds! That's a lot of things to process at once. 44:41 It's simultaneously hilarious and heartrending 47:07 CUE BEST SCENE IN THE MOVIE 54:20 D'awwww

  • I don't know how true it is but I've heard that the narrative is even told through the animation itself. Apparently Miles has a lower frame rate at the beginning of the movie, but it increases as he gains confidence in himself. That's why things look so refreshing when he finally suits up.

  • Never seen you before, checked your channel just now and surprised to see this many subs with literally only three videos, going back to a range that doesn't even surpass a single year. Each of those videos are very long though, and judging by what I'm seeing so far only literally a single minute into this video, I can see a lot of thought and passion went into each one. Huge props to you for putting this all together, and goodluck to your channel's future. This looks like the start of something I think I will enjoy experiencing.

It's not that he isn't scared, it's that he overcomes it and he doesn't lose his sensitivity and compassion along the way, like those traits are something negative to move past. Lovely work.

  • The message at the end hits hard. I didnt know I had A D D until a few months ago, but it gave me hell in my life so far. Especially not knowing what's wrong with me, I always struggled to meet anyones expectations... and the moment I realized I had ADD/ADHD, it really changed my view on life. I still was/am a failure, but for the first time I knew what was wrong with me, and most importantly... I'm not alone... its like Miles struggling to learn and control his powers, similarly I desperately try to find help right now. I dont want my ADD gone, but I need help trying to control it, to lead a somewhat normal life, without the chaos and failures of my past. Not easy tho, considering the money and location... but I'm still in the middle of the movie thats my life, and I really hope it has a happy end, without all the wasted potential...

  • Way to many jokes for my liking. I couldn't get past 40 mins of the film. It constantly makes jokes and refuses to take itself serious so how can I? Hard to feel the emotional impact of certain events when it constantly wants to throw a lame joke in there. From him meeting the Spiderman's for the first time(which is pretty forgettable) to even Spiderman's death. And a lot of the jokes aren't even that funny. Not to mention their jokes are predictable or jokes you'll find in any other modern super hero films with the annoying constant self awareness everyone has to have nowadays.

  • No one mentions the first time miles tries to jump the camera shows he trips on his untied shoelace it's easy to say it's a metaphor tripping over too many expectations as he's told through out the movie that his shoelace is untied only for him to reply it's a choice but I would say it's him tripping because he hasn't fully excepted the expectations, I say this because not only does everyone that mentions it pertain to him in that moment, schoolmate because he doesn't want to accepted that he is gifted and didn't get into that school through luck, Golden Age Spiderman after Miles gets his powers and Peter B Parker even though Miles thinks he is ready because he made a promise even though he's not ready Miles never trips when he's running away from Prowler because he hasn't taken on the mantle of Spiderman proper even though he had every chance to, MIles is clumsy but after donning his spider suit he's ready to take that leap of faith and show that he's ready for the responsibility

  • I’m just commenting here to make a short, concise comment about your review on TROS. Firstly, I respect your opinion. I’m not trying to change your opinion, just state my POV. I have many counters and discrepancies with your critique of TROS. Mainly they you state that JJ doesn’t ask the questions such as “What does the character want? What does the character need? How does the character learn this?”. JJ does ask these questions, at least for Rey and Kylo Ren, the two main characters. Rey wants to be a Jedi and stop the First Order. To do this, she must overcome her core belief of self worthlessness. Rey, unconsciously, believes she is worthless and not worthy of being a Jedi so, no matter how hard she wants and tries to be a Jedi, she can’t because of this mental block. TROS gets a bad wrap because of its terrible pacing. It DOES make the deeper and nuanced psychological arcs and depth of Rey and Kylo Ren feel rushed and, to many people, entirely invisible. This is true, the pacing of TROS is awful and the film should’ve been much longer or two films entirely but the depth is there. The truth is: JJ isn’t a hack. He isn’t some lazy, cheap loser who copies work of others and doesn’t care about character or substance. People only think this because his films are so action packed that they themselves are distracted from the actual depth that is there. Rey’s arc in TROS explores and completes some of the deepest psychological characterisation of a Star Wars character and the profound journey of overcoming such a deep set belief: “I am worthless.” but people don’t look into that because, when they watch the film, they get too distracted by the many, many action scenes and laser battles. Now yes, everything you said about Finn (ok, not everything but a lot) is true. He is somewhat sidelined in TROS and is kinda just there but, to me, that’s fine and makes sense. He isn’t the main character. Rey and Kylo Ren are the protagonists of the Sequels and their arcs, psychology, journeys, dynamic and story is the most important and most interesting part of the Sequels. One of the messages of TROS is that blood doesn’t matter and, in your review, you argue that this message gets reduced to “a bunch of trite aphorisms” and it doesn’t effect the character’s journeys, to which I say, “nahh”. That’s just untrue in many ways. I am not a fan of Rey being a Palpatine and prefered her to stay a nobody but to say that the theme of the film doesn’t work and is actually just “lip service” cannot be further from the truth. Rey denied her ancestry and “rightful” heir to the Sith because of Luke teaching her exactly this. Not only that but she eventually renounced the name entirely, taking on the Skywalker name, which has a whole host of depth and concepts to it that I won’t get into. However, this theme, to me, is the secondary theme of the film. The primary theme is that of self worth. As stated earlier, Rey’s arc is about this theme of self worth. Rey holds the psychological core belief “I am worthless”, which was born out of her childhood parental abandonment. Still, at the age of 20, Rey suffers from this belief. She overtly states that she doesn’t feel worthy of having Luke’s saber (“I will earn your brothers saber”), she says she fears herself (a common, real life issue for people who have no self worth, the idea that their biggest enemy is themselves and that they will mess everything up) and, in the end, the thing that allows her to win and defeat Palpatine (her want), is actually her finally breaking down this notion that she is worthless and creating a new belief, that she is worthful (yes, that is a word) and worthy of being a Jedi - hence the “I’m all the Jedi.” line being the defeat of Palpatine and the defeat of her toxic core belief. All’s I’m saying is, yes, TROS is a mess with its editing, may throw side characters even further to the side, may bring back Palpatine with no explanation and has a simple (but still fun) adventure/Indiana Jones plot but it also has depth, nuance, great completions of Rey and Kylo Ren’s arcs and, most importantly, heart. JJ put his heart and soul into TROS. Watching the behind the scenes movie about the writing, making and filming of TROS showed this clearly. He wanted everything to be perfect (to him, obviously, because film and story and character is 100% subjective in quality, meaning and content).
