Antman and the Wasp
« on: May 01, 2018, 08:43:09 PM »
I know we've got a Marvel Movies thread, but there is a LOT happening right now, and some subdivision seems called for.  To that end, new trailer for this movie:

Looks great!  I loved the first one and can't wait to see this one.

That would be a REALLY interesting direction!  We've seen WWII, Sci-Fi, Buddy Comedy, Spy, Shakespearean.  Wonder what this would look like. Lol

I can't even imagine, but I bet it would be fun!  The period would be about right.
God Bless

Movie looks like a lot of fun. I was happy to see more Micheal Pena, and a lot more of the Ghost. We didn't see much her of her in the first trailer, I think it was just a headshot. I got a kick out of hearing Cassie say she wants to fight crime like her dad, I like to think that's a reference to Stature/Stinger.

Saw it last night and it was good of course.

No real complaints.  It ended pretty much how I expected.  All the way around.

I've never really been a fan of Ant-Man up until these movies, which made him(and the Wasp) more of a hero than I ever could have thought.  Honestly though, these movies, which is much of Marvel's formula work very well outside of think it's just a typical superhero movie.  The last Ant-Man, I saw more of a social commentary on our penal system.  This one, it's hard to not be touched by the dynamic between a parent and child.  This movie had a lot of heart, good comedy and the action here was stepped up quite a bit from the first.

At this point if anyone really needs a recommendation to see this then it's hard to imagine any would do.  There's enough in this for everyone to enjoy.

Yup. I completely agree with you. This is the type of movie that youd watch on tv on a sunday afternoon with the family.
Just a competent, definitely funny, heartfelt movie without a bad bone in it.

Aw crumbs. I had a nice long post but the board ate it. To sum it quick, saw it yesterday. Quite enjoyed it. Probably like the first one better.
