I'm becoming a sentimental old man, but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is such a piece of film *craft* that it brings a tear to my eye just writing about it.

I so hope the next film, and we have been promised one, will be allowed to be made by professionals who are also fans, just like this one was, and that they will be allowed to put in all the effort they want to put into it and the effort that the film deserves. Then it can be as good as the first one.

Wouldn't that be something.
