    In all my life I have seen many movies. Some were good. Some were bad. Some were really really bad.(cough-lookin at you Percy Jackson-cough-although the actual movie was alright your plot sucked-cough)
    Anyways...yea..then some were freaking awesome. But in my honest, cultured opinion this is the only movie I’ve seen that is worthy of the title *Masterpiece* .

    Hey, they should use a real tag for the »Hello my name is« sticker at 0:04 and 9:33 instead of a ready to use Graffiti-tag-font. Nevertheless, that brings a nice subversive humor in the character …

  • These are the Daves I Know, I Know

    Thank you, Danny and Josh, for one of the best, most beautiful movies I've ever seen,and for this 13 minute lecture pointing out dozens of new ways to appreciate it which I'd never have spotted on my own, but which when pointed out, it's very clear how and why they're all vital contributions as to WHY it was so beautiful.

    I literally lost my interest in superheroe movies after age of Ultron but seriously this movie is a dope. Made me fascinated with it's animation skills throughout the movie.

    When I think about this movie, I can't pick out anything I didn't like about it. The writing, the songs, the style, colors, villains--it was all good imo. Probably my favorite superhero movie ever.

    If I can afford it. I would buy an expensive oled tv. Frame it up like you would a painting and hang it on the wall. And this tv will only play this movie.

    These guys were supposed to tackle Solo. Can you imagine how much better Solo would have been if KK would of keep her big nose out of the creative process. But her lose was our game b/c Spider-Verse was amazing.

    Are any of these animation techniques or ideas copyrighted? What happens if we apply them to some of our own art?

    Big fan of this video!! Massively inspirational!

    in this movie it felt like so many things happened, they did the complete opposite of all other superhero movies were doing, which is not divide it in trilogies, not drag it out, but take your time to tell the story properly.
    Sure, there is the possibility of them making a sequel, but honestly, I don't really want them to. I'd rather watch a completely different story, with new ideas, different project and new challenges.

    I wonder how well the spider verse art style would transition into a video game.

    They really did set the bar high for this, I have never ever seen a film like it, and I don't think anyone will come close to what they've done with this, not even pixar.
