Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
MUST-SEE: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse
The Best Animated Feature category this year is stacked. Most years, the Pixar film wins mostly by default, although many of those films are terrific. This year, though, Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse is the deserved frontrunner. It’s also one of the best superhero films of the year.
Following Miles Morales as he goes on an interdimensional journey, the film is at once about his coming of age and what it means to be Spider-Man. In balancing those two things, it also finds time to be poignant, funny, and original. In an age filled with superhero storytelling, this film rises to the top of the pile.
