Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse…

Yesterday I went to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse at Vue Cinema in glitzy Angel. 

Where to begin?

Well, it was a bit like flicking through a comic book while taking some powerful hallucinogen and sniffing amphetamine. Flippy, trippy, rushy. 

It was fast, flashy, noisy, exciting, energetic, fun, dazzling, funny and like a poppers rush. 

A smörgåsbord of a gazillion animation styles, real-life cameos, and heaps of jokey references to various comic book troupes. 

There were Spider-people, Spider-objects, Spider-animals, whole Spider-universes. It was delight for the eyes and the mind. 

The plot picked up somewhat from the previous film left off, although it wasn't really necessary to have seen it. The film just sort of was. And then it ended (with a ‘To be continued’ message).

I came out not quite understanding what I’d seen, but having really enjoyed it. 

What a trip.
