Ant-Man and The Wasp

Published

The latest in the comic book entertainment renaissance is Ant-Man and The Wasp. A sequel to Ant-Man where we were introduced to Paul Rudd’s wise cracking, thief of a hero. Last we saw of him he was fighting alongside Captain America against Iron Man and other Avengers. Well,that sort of made him an international criminal and landed him house arrest and subsequent probation.

Everything is almost over as long as he can stay clear for three more days he’s free of house arrest. Of course, that wasn’t going to be an easy task as Hope Van Dyne and Hank Pym(the exact people he’s not allowed to be in contact with come calling for help). Help to rescue Hope’s mother, the original Wasp who has been lost ever since she went subatomic years ago.

There are a host of new faces in this one as well as old faces as well. New faces include Janet Van Dyne who is the original Wasp played by Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne playing an old science partner named Bill Foster. There are a few villains in this one but none as big of a looming threat as Ghost.A villain that can phase through all types of matter and is after the technology Hank Pym and his daughter have developed.

The last few villains in the Marvel line up have been fantastic with Erik Killmonger and Thanos in recent memory but, this seems to be when we lose that particular momentum as Ghost and money hungry weapons seller Sonny Burch aren’t the most compelling examples of foils to our heroes.

The returning cast pick up where they left off and slide right back in to their respective parts comfortably. With only a noticeable reduction in the emphasis on Scott Lang’s crew as characters. Some of my favorite parts involve Scott and his daughter Cassie. There is a chemistry between Rudd and young actress Abby Ryder Fortson that is touching and fun to watch. Last time was a heist film and this time has elements of that but more focus on a rescue mission. If you dug the previous Ant-Man entry then you will without doubt like this one too.

Ant-Man steals a 4 of 5 from this reviewer. Oh, and stay after for the extra scene mid credits as it explains where Ant-Man was during Infinity War.

The 8 Episode Series Tries To Encompass A Lot Leaving Fans In A Cliffhanger.

Published

The 2010 “Avatar: The Last Airbender” movie by M. Night Shyamalan faced criticism for its deviations from the beloved animated series. The film struggled with pacing, casting, and a lackluster script, disappointing fans who cherished the source material. In contrast, the 2024 Netflix series has generated positive buzz for its commitment to diverse casting, adherence to the original storyline, and improved character development. The series seems poised to capture the essence of the animated show, offering a fresh and faithful adaptation that resonates with both new and existing fans.

Even though the Netflix series comes closer to the core ideals of the animated series, I feel it lacks heart. Many scenes barely scratch the surface of the relationships between the characters and the push-and-pull relationship between Aang and Zuko. I will admit the CG versions of Momo and Appa are just so gosh darn cute.

The 8 episode series tries to encompass a lot leaving fans in a cliffhanger. It’s worth a watch and I am hanging on for the next season to be announced.
