Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse Review

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

As a huge Spiderman fan, I was extremely excited for this movie to happen and I genuinely believe that I was not disappointed! Oh I’m back as well!! My apologies for being quiet, but I am back and hopefully banging out some more reviews. So lets get started with this Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse review.

Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, and Shameik Moore in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

This was an animated movie, produced by Sony and Marvel, featuring the origin story of Miles Morales, a teenage boy who gets his very own Spider powers but its also coincides with Wilson Fisk’s plan selfish plan which not only brings other Spidermen to Miles’ universe but also threatens to complete destroy the reality all together. This animated movie was absolutely amazing!!!!!! I am a huge fan of Morales’ Spiderman and I’m also a big fan of the Spiderverse comic and this movie is able to handle and balance both this story archs really well. Considering the fact that the spiderverse aspect of the movie was shrunk down to fit within Morales’ story, it doesn’t feel rushed and ham fisted in any way! It was also brilliant to see other versions of Spiderman, including 2 Spidermen, Spider Ham, Spider Gwen, Penni Parker and Spiderman Noir. Each character had their own parts and they all felt like that they had a good amount of screen time that didn’t leave you thinking that One had more than the other.

The voice acting for this was brilliant, and I won’t spoil it by saying who voiced who but all the performances worked brilliantly. There were alot of moments that stood out. quite a few emotional beats that hit hard, but a lot of belly laughing moments that are stupendous! The best thing about this movie is that the animation for each character is brilliant and the way that it molds together, especially during the fight scenes is brilliant (I’ve said brilliant quite alot). There was a worry for Sony to mess up another Spiderman movie but I’m so glad that this movie has hit a high note and I firmly believe you need to go and see this movie!

One of the main themes that come from this movie is the idea of “Anyone can wear the mask” which was actually refreshing from the Spiderman franchise. It was also a nice reminder to me regarding the cosplay community that anyone can not only wear the mask, but anyone can be any character, any size, any age, it was brilliant to have this message in the movie, that mirrors our community that tells us, hey, you wanna be Spiderman, do it! You wanna be Wonder Woman, do the thing!

I love seeing people do the cosplays that they want to do and feel comfortable in what they want to do! As long as it does not offend, you get those costumes on and have yourself a hell of a good time! Just for the love of god, if you are gonna do a Spiderman, or a Deadpool, or cosplay where you are wearing a zentai suit…..WEAR…..A SODDING…..CUP!!!!!!! Don’t be that guy!!!!!!!!!

Don’t forget we have articles about how to go about getting a zentai Spider Suit or similar suits.  Also we did a list of Cosplays We Like based on the SpiderVerse film check out.

Other Film Reviews
11 years in the making, over 20 movies and it finally comes down to this. We’re in the endgame now. And boy….was it a hell of an endgame. Now obviously I will try to make this a spoiler free review, but this is a hell of a movie to try and unpack without going too specific so I promise I will do my best. Now the best way to summarise this movie is that everyone that’s left after the snap happens is trying to find their way through this new world that has been created by Thanos, that is until someone comes up with an idea that could change everything…….yeah that’s vague enough not spoil anything Everything about this movie was just perfect. The pacing, the music, I know I already mentioned the performances but the beats each character hits, hits home so amazingly! Ok. This movie. IS AMAZING!!!! Before I even talk about this movie, I’m gonna tell you that you NEED to do a marathon before getting to this movie. There are so many hints and nods to the past movies. Along with that, this movie is literally like a fan service to us, the ones who have stuck to this movie franchise over the past decade and a bit. The performances from everyone involved were at top level. There are minor plot holes, but honestly, this movie delivers so much to the fans that you genuinely don’t care, and I can tell you now, the last hour of this movie is the best cinematic piece in comic movie history. Hands. Down. And when it comes to cosplay, there is only thing i can say, and that is a huge thank you and congratulations. All weekend i’ve seen cosplayers doing what they love for the movie franchise they love and it has been to raise so much money for charities and it just shows how much cosplayers love to give back, not just to the community but to people in need as well. Bottom line. You need to stop reading this and go watch this movie! Like this:Like Loading... [...] Read more...
This remake centres around Harbour’s Hellboy working with his father Ian McShane and facing off against Milla Jovovich’s Numie who is an eternal living blood queen who wants demons and monsters to take over the world. Hellboy must beat her with the help of Sasha Lane’s Alice and Daniel Dae Kim’s Major Ben Daimio. A lot of people were a tad sceptical when a Hellboy remake/reboot was announced, however, the pictures of David Habour surfaced of him in the full Hellboy make up which raised all the excitement for the project! And so, the movie hit theatres with a lot of expectation! This movie took full advantage of the 18 rating, ramping up the gore that you would find in the comics. Now comparing this movie to the first Hellboy movie back in 2004, because of course it was gonna be compared, where the 2004 version opted for more storytelling and world advancement, this movie decided to shy away from more storytelling and went for adding more action. Most people do enjoy this but I personally didn’t like this. The movie was hindered by lack of story and some CGI that looked incredibly bad. This CGI looked better placed back in 1998 it was that bad. Now don’t get me wrong, David Harbour’s performance was brilliant, I was a tad unsure with regards to some of the prosthetics but in the overall look, they were amazing in the movie, its just a shame that some of the other effects seemed unfinished and the gore itself became a bit too much at some times. The movie was a fun experience to go see, I would suggest going for it but don’t expect an amazing movie. Now the prosthetics are amazing for Harbour’s Hellboy and I think some of the best body paints to use for cosplays would be a good thing to speak about. One of the best paints I’ve used is mehron, the amount of variety you can get is amazing and it seems to go on quite well. There are also many other products you can grab from other places, as long as you can grab some body paint setter that will help keep the paint on for longer. There are many cosplayers who have done some amazing Hellboy cosplays that have used some excellent paint! I can’t wait to see some more amazing cosplays using some stellar paintwork!

how goes it fellow nerds, geeks and the like! Well you’ll be hearing alot from me this month, with quite a few films coming out, and a final season that I hope to review at the end. So let’s start with another installment from DC, after their very big success with Aquaman, Shazam! Shazam revolves around 13 year old, or basically 14 year old Billy Batson, who is essentially recruited by an old wizard and passes on his powers to him to protect the world against the 7 deadly sins and to carry on the legacy of wizards that came before him. Unfortunately, Billy runs into his first super villian in Dr. Sivana and has to take him down with his new found powers. I have got to say, this movie was really good, I feel like the DC movie universe has turned a new corner and has a new freedom with their movie making. Asher Angel who plays Billy Batson as his younger self had a great chemistry with the other young members of the cast, especially Jack Dylan Grazer who plays Freddie Freeman, who helps Billy as he takes on this transformation. Zachary Levi, i’ll be honest, I could never see as a super hero, and yet he handled it brilliantly! Showing the power that he possesses, while using his funny side to portray 14 year old stuck in a man’s body who has superpowers. Mark Strong who plays Dr. Sivana is very compelling as a supervillian. All in all, this movie was incredibly fun and lighthearted, while still maintaining a sense of danger and dread. The costumes from this movie are really awesome as well. obviously due to this movie being in production for a while, there have been many set photos and its been amazing seeing people’s take on how to do the lightning on Shazam’s chest! From using yellow foam, to people using the same kind of lighting mechanism that can be used. What is also amazing to see is using red puff painting to add the small design and details to the suit. Hopefully when a sequel comes, and oh yes, there most definitely has to be a sequel to this movie because it was great, hopefully we can see the long awaited debut of Black Adam, which can add to the cosplay list for alot of people! I genuinely suggest you go and see this movie, DC have finally hit their stride with their movies and hopefully they will continue get better with the freedom the directors have.
