Kelvin Says Hats Off:

Just saw “Ant-Man and the Wasp” – House Arrested Development. Conclusion: 7/10. I was pleasantly surprised, though still a bit lukewarm, to the first “Ant-Man” movie. However, the creative action sequences, fun performances, and humor were enough for me the first time around and I’d say things are pretty much the same this time. Some of the gags are a bit funnier and I think the villain works better emotionally, but it is decidedly second-shelf Marvel material. That isn’t necessary a bad thing. As I’m sure a decent amount of people are fatigued out of superhero movies, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” keeps things simple and scaled down. The stakes don’t include the universe or even really anything outside of the main characters of the film. For me, this makes it a bit easier to get into the movie since it doesn’t feel like you’re being taken on the same ride as all these movies seem to be anymore. To be sure, there are still connections to the Marvel Universe as a whole, but even those are dialed down and more so just used to get the characters into their starting positions. It’s relative feeling of irrelevance allows the audience to just invest into the characters and their personalities, instead of being bogged down by stakes that don’t seem to match the level of the movie. Once again, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, and Michael Douglas bring enough laughs and charisma to move it past the finish line and the little bonus of Michelle Pfeiffer is most welcomed. It’s not going to blow you away, but it is fun enough, and really, that’s all a film like this needs to be. #InsectOrGadget #GhostFlusters #DisneysQuantumEntangled #AntManAndTheWhiteAngloSaxonProtestant #ItTakesConsToKnowCons #TheRealPymShady
