Art, when you think of art you think of a picture or something you will see at an exhibit, but art expands in TV, film, music, museum exhibits, logos and much more.

Lots of movies won awards for visual and cinematography which are two key examples. With Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. The film is scheduled to become available for streaming on Netflix starting in July.

For this film, I was impressed due to the colorful, yet dark and visually stunning picture. The film overall to me was one of the best “Spider-Man” films ever. This film also differentiates the art style it depicts which correlates with a comic book coming to life.

Great movies like “Spiderverse” is why the power of 3D and even 4K is good for the eyes, I enjoyed this film so much due to it being a thrill ride of art and defining lots of emotions and each emotion it envisioned was great. The skin tones and the designs were phenomenal. It was also impressive with how the film showed a dark side.

Films steadily focus on explosions, computer generated graphics, gore, and action. It just doesn’t fit into telling the real story. For this film mainly showed “Spider-Man” from different worlds and each had different personalities.

Miles Morales, played by Shameik Moore gets bitten by a spider, and within two days he become “one with the mask”, gaining spider powers. However, he then finds out that there was more than one “Spider-Man” out there in different universes.

The characters were masterful, with each of them shining with multiple personalities. From “Spider-Hamm”, played by John Mulaney, to an anime-style “Spider-Girl” with her pet robot. Not to mention that we were blessed with the appearance of Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), and Spider-Noir, in which actor Nicholas Cage gave life to.

The audience adored the unusual art style from start to finish. If you haven’t had the chance to see this movie, it is highly recommended, especially since it has won a multitude of awards. Even if you are not a Spider-Man fan, or a fan of superheroes in general. People of all ages, even children would enjoy the movie very much.
