Movie of the Week: Ant-Man

My Tiny Obsessions

I did it! I finally managed to go watch Ant-Man(last week)!!! 😀

I was a bit skeptical when the movie started (and sometime in the middle), but somehow the movie works. When I can get over the creepiness of all those ants, it is pretty spectacular. The fact that the first scene has Peggy Carter and Howard Stark, as well as a much younger Hank Pym, really warmed my heart! (Peggy Carter just has to be in all Marvel things now, right? It’s in her contract?)

The fact that the storyline wasn’t about saving the world, but was a heist, was ingenious and ultimately made the movie better, it stayed grounded, it showed that although Ant-Man has the potential, he’s not yet up to par with the Avengers. That’s “realistic” and it made the movie thoroughly enjoyable. Speaking of the Avengers, that scene with the Falcon was pure genius!
