Episode 22: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse

Hey there, true believers! This week’s “In Theaters Now” involves the animated film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse,” the most recent attempt to translate Spider-man to the big screen.  Does it work? Does it fail? More importantly, if he’s got the powers of spider, why do his webs come out of his wrists? Shouldn’t they come out of a more . . . abdominal region? And if he “does whatever a spider can”, doesn’t that mean he should catch thieves, cocoon them in his web for a while, and then eat them? Wow, that would be a REALLY different movie . . . [Spoilers: at no time does Spider-man eat any of his criminal foes.  At least . . . not on screen . . . ].

  1. FYI – It was well documented in the movie “Sahara” (you know, that stellar Clive Cussler flick), that there was indeed an ocean where the Sahara is. They found an ancient ship, complete with cannons and everything. Sheesh! I thought everyone knew that…

    1. Well, as long as Dirk Pitt knew it, that’s all that counts! There’s a name you’d follow into a legendary lost sea… Let’s all Cuss together, shall we?
