Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Ten-year-old David is very happy.

This film, maybe the best superhero film ever, didn’t arrive until I was 47, thanks in large part to the need for computer animation to advance as far as it has.

But this all-star slugfest, which brings together a host of Spider-infused do-gooders — from Nicolas Cage’s Spider-Man Noir to John Mulaney’s Spider-Ham — is a vibrant tribute to every wild-eyed moment I had as a young man devouring comic books.

It has huge heart, it has sly humor, it soars in ways other superhero films can’t even begin to imagine.

It is the dream fulfilled.
