Chapter 2

Okay… Has anyone been to the movie theater lately! The new animated spider-man movie, Spider Man: Into the Spider-verse, was amazing! I completely under-rated the movie by far!

Before I start raving about the movies perfect story line and animation, I want to acknowledge the fact that there will be no spoilers. The movie is unpredictable and very engaging, grabbing your attention and pulling you to the edge of your seat. I would be devastated if I had it spoiled for me before I even saw the movie, so I won’t be hypocritical of myself, I’ll only be brief.

Based off the comics, the movie revolves around a young African-Latino teen in high school known as Miles Morales. Bitten by a radioactive spider, like Peter Parker, he inherits spider-like super powers that set him on the path to become the next Spiderman of NYC. Now, if you don’t read the comics, haven’t seen this particular Spiderman movie, but know of Spiderman, you’re probably wondering who in the world Miles Morales. I mean Peter Parker is always the plays as the important protagonist Spiderman, not Miles Morales. Well… that’s not true because according to quantum theory, there are multiple possible alternate realities in which things are different from our own current reality. For example, in another reality, Thomas Jefferson could have been the first president of the US, where as George Washington might have been the king of the British Empire, an ordinary person, or just non-existent. However, in terms of the movie, Miles Morales is from one of those alternate universes that the movie focuses on. In his universe, the antagonist, kingpin, creates a particle collider that begins to fuse the many possible alternate realities together, in hopes to bring back his deceased family. As a result of this attempt, the city’s safety is threatened because of the colliders potential destruction to Mile’s universe and many other ones. In addition to the potential effects of the collider, many alternate forms of Spiderman are thrown into Mile’s universe who work with him to try and stop Kingpin and return home to there own universes.

Moreover, the well constructed action based story line of the classic “hero versus villain” concept, is not all the movie has to offer. The fantastic animations of the movie are of a comic art style that makes the film seem as if it was the first ever comic to be put into motion. Every detail of each scene was extremely well crafted, making everything unique and keeping my eyes engaged and amazed.

Adding on to the movies great production is the intrinsic focus on the protagonist’s personality and identity as Spiderman. The movie makes Miles relatable to the audience, depicting him as an ordinary person having there lives changed. When he is bitten by the spider, he freaks out just like any person would if they had no idea why they were sticking to walls or dodging dangerous obstacles in style (Spidey senses). As Miles begins to learn how to live with his new spider enhanced abilities, he is guided by his new spider friends to make tough decisions that help him to resolve potential problems that come with being Spiderman.

Okay, so to sum it up, Spider Man: Into the Spider-verse, was a really great movie. In all honesty, there wasn’t a single thing I disliked about it. Of course your entitled to your own opinion and can think what you want of the movie, but if you haven’t seen it you should. Also, you don’t have to take my word for it. The movie had really great reviews. According to google, 97% of users liked it, and on IMDB, the movie received a 8.7/10. So… you don’t have to see it, but it’s totally worth the money. I mean, I actually would buy this movie when its available for purchase.

1st Blog

Hi! I’m totally new to this whole blog thing, but I like trying new things. Plus, it’s 2019, so why not?

Like you, I’m an ordinary person experiencing many of the different things life has to offer. Apparently, right now, I’m experiencing the new world of blogging, one thing that life has offered me to try. However, I wouldn’t be blogging right now if life hadn’t placed the new idea into my path. Okay, but how did life lead me to try out blogging? Well… it all revolves around my everyday life and experiences. You see, I love to meet new people, especially those I connect with most. I mean everyone has to enjoy meeting new people, making friends, and eventually finding the one. There’s no way that anyone wouldn’t enjoy or even desire one of those things because it’s what we’re meant to do. I mean you can’t live on a planet with 7 billion people and not want to get to know another person who lives exactly like you. In addittion, we’re all programmed to reproduce and that mainly relies on interaction with others (literally), otherwise you probably wouldn’t be here right now.

Anyways, I love to get to know people, however, where I live and how I go about my life doesn’t exactly make it easy. You see, I live in a big city where there’s plenty of people to meet, but not a lot of meeting going on. At least, in the small suburban neighborhoods I live in, people don’t really know each other because they keep to themselves and don’t leave there houses (unless for necessities such as groceries) or attempt to know those that live around them. Now, I’m not exactly an innocent victim of this on going problem, as I too contribute to it. But… there maybe many explanations for why there is a lack of social interaction in my neighborhood, such as exhaution from work. For myself, I know this to be true when I return home from being at work for a majority of the day. However, the problem seems to extend to places outside the boundaries of my neighborhood, for example, where I work. When I go to my daily work place, I find that many of the people around me are so similar to one another, that it seems like I have no way to distinguish them from one another (other than by there appearance or name). This is a problem I incredibly
dislike to deal with because it makes my workplace less enjoyable. Also, I enjoy experiencing the variety and diversities of peoples’
personalities that are unique to them. After all, if the everything was the same, life would be lame.

Okay, so to wrap it up, that’s what has brought me to attempt blogging. I mean, you never really know if you enjoy something until you try it. Also, blogging is my solution to escaping the barriers of anti-socialism in my city because what other way is there to get more connected with people than through the internet? I mean, majority of people are on it for most their day.

If you read this, thank you! I’m super excited to start this new journey of blogging and I’m eager to share many interests of mine that might relate your interest.
