I Might be 12

I went to go see Spiderman: Into the Spider-verse.

You might want to go, too.

Yes, the theater will be filled with tweens munching loudly on popcorn.  Yes, you might be the oldest person there.  And yes, it's an animated film that's rated PG.  BUT THE ANIMATION IS AWESOME!  It's like a comic book has come to life.  And the story is good, too, even if you aren't a Marvel or Spiderman fan.

SONY Pictures Animation
If you need any more convincing, it has a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  A.O. Scott of the New York Times wrote, "It's a movie for everyone. And, as I was saying, [it's] a lot of fun." Rolling Stone Magazine called it a "...gorgeous take on the Marvel superhero" and the "Greatest Spidey Movie of All Time."

Go have some fun at the cartoons and be awed by this new kind of animation, while you have a few laughs. It's clear the animators took their job seriously because they created something original.  They also didn't take themselves too seriously because there are snippets snuck in here and there where they are having WAY too much fun with the visuals.  

Did I say the animation is awesome?
