Yet another Marvel Success

I wish I could hate a Marvel movie; for no reason other than the fact that I don’t like loving every movie they’ve created thus far. Unfortunately for me, Ant-Man was impossible to dislike.


The movie was hilarious, mostly coherent and it had Paul Rudd. I cannot stress enough that IMHO Paul Rudd is a comedic genius. He brought Ant-Man to life and laid to rest all the previous susurration that a non-muscular funny man couldn’t possibly play a superhero.characters_1-scott

Superhero movies usually show the transformation of a skinny boy/man/woman transforming into a bulked up macho person that saves everyone while cracking a few jokes. What I loved about Ant-man is that it spun that stereotype on its head. On top of delivering more than a few wise quips, it contains an average sized man who learns some sexy fight moves from a woman (Evangeline Lilly), and then transforms into a tiny ant sized man who packs quite a punch and saves the day.

The rest of the actors were believable and mostly funny. Evangeline Lilly is a fantastic actress and handled her role with skill. She was pretty bad-ass and left me wishing she was allowed to don the suit at some point in the movie (just an idea Marvel!).

Overall, Ant-man was a great movie that left me laughing out loud more times than I can count and yes, I will unapologetically be watching it again in theatres.


Go watch it and let us know what you think!  Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest for more on our (mis)adventures and interests.

Until next time,

    Ant-Man was better than I expected it to be. Leading up to its release I didn’t know a whole lot about it, but I ended up getting dragged along by an excited co-worker and I’m glad I did. The movie was great starting point for a new character, and I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
