I think a lot of people miss the depths to what a Marvel film can rise or fall, as they are actually far deeper then a lot of films that are suppose to be deeper, because they are not about superheroes or super heroines, but . . .?! about relationships. Relationships between families, foes, friends, mentors, etc. For example . . .

"Ant-man"

Villain
a hero is only as good as the villain, he or she faces, and "Ant-man" has one of the better ones in Cross. When is the last time you saw a villain that practiced meditation and yoga?

Surprises
not really any surprises in the film, except Pym survived. Maybe because of . . .

Sequel
we are promised a sequel. And I'm down with that.

In-jokes
a number of good in-jokes in the film.

Emotionally
resonating

Cynical
one of the most cynical films I've seen, as it basically says that we are all crooks. It is just some of us are bigger crooks than others.

Creepy
I found it surprisingly creepy, as near death comes by . . .
-drowning
-record needle
-dance step
-falling
-vacuum cleaner
-rat
etc.

Casting
the strength of a Marvel film always comes in the casting. Who'd have thought of casting Michael Douglas as Pym? Not me, but . . .?! He is perfect in the part.

Cameo
what is a Marvel film without a Stan Lee cameo?

After-credits scene
not 1, but 2 after credits scenes.

Action
some good action as a future Avenger takes on a present Avenger.

As to what is next . . .

Mr. Holmes
Except . . .
like so many films I want to see, it is not playing in the area in which I live.

Finest Hours
Based upon the book of the same title and regarded as the greatest rescue at sea in the peacetime history of the U.S. Coast Guard. When 2 oiler tankers run aground off the coast of New England during a storm and start to break up, it is up to the U.S. Coast Guard to set off in small boats to rescue both crews.
Except . . .
It is not scheduled for release to January of next year.

Thus . . .
There may not be anything I want to see till this Thanksgiving, when the next Pixar film "The Good Dinosaur" comes to a theater.

Looks like another Sandler "miss" - 19% Rotten Tomatoes rating.


Is it really that bad? It is not a film I need to see or care to see, but . . .?! I did see the trailer for it, and this may not be saying that much, but . . .?! The trailer did make it look to be one of Sandler's better films.

watched about half of The Majorettes and it's not that weird really, has the vibe of an old tv movie that could've be shown in the afternoon, except for the kills - some great scenes of terrible dubbing though  Smile

You should stick it out till the end - the weirdness definitely comes in.  Out of nowhere, it pretty much switches from slasher to bad Rambo knock-off!

I have 8 of those, on two 4-movie dvds.   I watched "Midnight Chronicles" just yesterday - obviously a tv pilot, a bit uneven but some of the lines were quite good.

"Lavalantula" (2015)
Small | Large


Volcanic eruptions in L.A.bring forth hordes of prehistoric fire-breathing spiders from deep within the earth... and humanity's only hope is... Steve Guttenberg and the cast of Police Academy??
The stunt casting alone would make this SyFy no budget spectacular (from the director of the similarly ridiculous-but-fun-as-hell Big Ass Spider!) worth a look, but the movie itself turns out to be an action packed, stone cold tongue in cheek hoot that takes all the shark flicks that SyFy's pumped out so far this year, rolls'em up and smokes'em!!

For those who don't want to click through to see the list:

Dragon Quest
Midnight Chronicles
The Beast Master
Merlin and the War of the Dragons
100 Million BC
Blackbeard
The Curse of King Tut's Tomb
Merlin's Apprentice
The Poseidon Adventure
Journey to the Center of the Earth

Of these, I've seen The Beast Master and The Poseidon Adventure before.

Wondering who classified The Poseidon Adventure as fantasy.

Holy CRAP!   Buggedout

 



Agreed: I don't want to know why that lady's ears are so big and if she has or hasn't got her fingers stuck right up that cat's bum  Buggedout Buggedout


Maybe her ears are sticking straight out for the same reason the cat's leg is: where is the guy's hand?

Buggedout  I cannot believe I said that...)

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
