While there are umpteen Spider-Man movies, this adventurous animated take embraces the most out-there bits of Spidey lore and forges something totally fresh from them. Yes, it rips through yet more origin stories and sets up another villain with a giant multiverse-opening thingamajiggy, but by the time it’s also chucked a Spider-pig (yes, really) and buckets of dayglo-bathed spectacle at you, resistance is futile.
Admit it: As much as you love Academy Award-winning dramas or classic foreign films, you’ve got a secret thing for the best action movies. Huge explosions. Ahnold. Luckily, Netflix is aware that inside of all of us is a craving for a Michael Bay movie just waiting to be itched.
