Sunday Movie Review: “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”

This past Thursday, I was all set to type up a B- review of the fourth weekend of “Instant Family” when I stumbled across tickets to a next-day screening of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” which officially opens next Friday.

Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

At 6-1 and 181 pounds, Chester Rogers is easy to overlook on a football field saturated with opponents who are much larger and determined to make him earn every yard he can gather.
Good thing Rogers has the quickness and sleight-of-step to avoid such defenders.
The former Grambling State University wide receiver is quickly emerging as one of the valuable targets for Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback Andrew Luck.
“Chester and I have created a good chemistry together,” Luck said.
“I have the utmost confidence in him and what he brings to our game planning.”

Movies, much like the music of the season, are a staple of Christmastime. Spanning a variety of genres, there are the infamous Hallmark movies — cheesy tearjerkers that you just can’t seem to stop watching, despite how seemingly terrible they are, the “Classics”— the ones that most people know right off the bat, and the not-so-family-friendly comedies that give a good laugh or ten, just to name a few.
