‘Across the Spider-Verse,’ ‘The Little Mermaid’, and ‘I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson

It’s a blockbuster podcast this week as host Neal Pollack returns from the well-managed wilds of America to once again parse the culture with our ace critics. Stephen Garrett is back from Cannes to review ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse,’ the sequel to an Oscar-winning animated film from five years ago. Stephen marvels, literally, at the exciting animation, the fun action set pieces, and the genuine heartfelt emotion of the script. Neal finds a lot to admire in the movie but thinks it’s a little too much and also he has a heart of stone and despises genuine emotion.

Then it’s Sara Stewart’s turn, offering her hot take on Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ live-action remake. Sara is not in the “Little Mermaid shouldn’t be black” camp, but she is in the “movie is too long for kids and also the cinematography is murky” camp. Also, she doesn’t like the new Lin-Manuel Miranda song starring Awkwafina as a rapping seagull, a very 2023 problem.
