With great power comes great responsibility but we won’t give you that while you’re glitching out. Georgia’s final selection of 2020 brings us the animated masterpiece Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, & Georgia – and our very special guest (and Halloween poll ruiner) Ethan -  as we watch a film that is an assault on the senses (in both the positive and negative senses). We're throwing our tag around Brooklyn in our 38th episode as we discuss:

  • The original idea for this film and how very different a film this could have been
  • The painstaking detail that went into animating this film
  • We discuss how the filmmakers were able to make us care about 5 separate relationships in this film
  • We're pretty sure Ethan makes up a few Spider-Men in his research
  • We all wax poetic about the score and animation
  • Ian learns what a "Post Malone" is
  • We once again learn about a villain who just doesn't learn the order in which you kill the heroes in
  • We try and keep up with the amount of Easter eggs in this film
  • Somebody has to fess up that they fell asleep watching the film
  • We debate whether execution of technical elements makes up for story shortcomings
  • We determine which of the Spider-Men could have stayed out of the Spider-Verse
  • Whether or not Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is the Best Film Ever.
