Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse 4K UHD [Blu-ray] [Region A & B & C]
About this deal
One possibility is that Sony doesn’t want to alienate any fans at all or get certain crowds all worked up about “woke.” It should be interesting indeed to see if Miles and Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) get to be more than just friends in part three or if the movie will pull a Rey-Finn maneuver in fear of Chinese boycotts and stay in the ‘zone. Fortunately, the movie as it stands now speaks pretty clearly for itself, even if it doesn’t use specific words to do so.

Across the Spider-Verse probably doesn’t need yet another recommendation, but it gets it anyway. The 4K presentation is one that will work quite nicely as a show-off disc to demonstrate what your UHD TV can do, and the commentary is required listening for aspiring filmmakers or anyone interested in filmmaking. There’s plenty else touting all the design and tech, and the music videos make a good cherry on top. And Yet… Note: The 4K version is the same as the digital version with regard to changes made since the theatrical. I’m generally not in favor of that — they don’t really affect this overall movie that much, but the principle of the movie seen in theaters being the same one you get at home is one that cinephiles should stand behind, or you get messes like the Star Wars Special Editions or the home cut of Battlefield Earth that trims John Travolta’s most ridiculous bits of overacting that were the only reason to see it. Extended or revised cuts labeled as such are fine, but keep the theatrical release available always. Revisit, Reward It goes without saying that this is a fantastic follow-up to the previous Spider-verse installment. The steelbook itself is beautifully presented and makes a worthwhile addition to any collection.
