Spider-man Into the Spiderverse! The guys ramble on about the plot and argue over minute probabilities, while discussing the personality and the characters of Miles Morales, Gwen Stacey and Peter B. Parker. However Frank get’s confused on which Peter Parker is which in the movie while discussing the various Spider-people that arrive into Miles reality as a result of the testing of a large device that creates dimensional rifts. John briefly talks about “goobers” or Macguffins.
They discuss the theme of “believing in yourself” and how it’s the central idea to the film with all the characters. Frank touches on the history of the multiverse characters. John and Frank then talk about how the movie was stylized to appear like a comic book through-out. Then the guys talk villains, first comparing the Spider-verse Kingpin with Daredevil’s, as well as going in depth about this version of Doc Ock. The discussion turns to what they hope to see in future films with all the characters. And finally it’s their final thoughts.
“He is an actualized human being who truly knows himself, who is a brutal murderer and mafia kingpin.”
“All the advice his uncle gave him was equally good advice but his uncle was also a murderer.”
“Not only is it good, but it’s fun. It’s just fun.”
