Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse is blowing up the theaters. And opinions.
Many are hailing Across The Spider-Verse as a beautiful marvel of animated cinematography. Others are complaining there’s too much going on and the various styles clash with the movie.
I’m leaning towards Across The Spider-Verse being a grand entry into the new animated world of Spider-Man. The introduction of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) in the last film and now the introduction of so many other Spider-men and women. It’s a blast seeing new Spider characters introduced. A few are Spider-Punk (Daniel Kalyuua), Jessica Drew (Issa Rae), Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac), Pavitr Prabhakar/Spider-Man India (Karan Soni), Ben Reilly/Scarlet Spider (Andy Samberg), Lego Spider-Man (Nic Novicki), Metro Spider-Man (Metro), Spectacular Spider-Man (Josh Keaton), and many others. Not only that, but we get the return of Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld). Read more...

Endgame picks up shortly after the end of Avengers: Infinity War. You see Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) teaching his young daughter how to shoot a bow and arrow. As she goes to collect the arrow, Clint begins to notice something isn’t right…
His wife, other child, and then his daughter have all disappeared. He’s left there all alone.
This is how Endgame begins. The ruthless pace doesn’t let up. It also doesn’t disappoint.
There were plenty of high and low points throughout Endgame. Many emotions were felt. And many Reel Leadership lessons were found in Endgame. Read more...
