I re-watched Ant-Man for the first time and definitely liked a lot more the second time around. Maybe it's the hype for the new one but I really enjoyed it. I forgot a few little details about this movie. I forgot Scott's entire backstory- mainly why Hank was keeping an eye on him. I forgot that Hydra were trying to buy the Yellowjacket tech. I appreciated the heist aspect of it more. I kinda rolled my eyes at it the first time, but it really is kind of a decent heist movie on its own terms. The first third is not as boring as I remember it. The final battle from the helicopter on still rips, and the quantum realm sequence is surprisingly tense and emotional.

I even found some love for Darren Cross/Yellowjacket. He's not as lame a villain as he's remembered as. His misplaced daddy issues with Hank are really strange and unsettling and Cory Stoll plays it really well. Sure, he's a lot like Obidiah and other similar villains but this is just MCU's take on the vain, pompous, insecure, white collar egomaniac type, and I can root against those villains all day. And the Falcon cameo, which I thought was super cheesy in the theater, now I think played exactly like something out of a comic book. It was fun!

Hyped for the new one.

Enjoyed Ant-Man and Wasp. It was slight but charming. Something about the Scott/Cassie relationship really works for me.

Still keeping fingers crossed for Young Avengers being in the next wave of two. I'm sure you can make it work with time travel shenanigans...

Also: BP is 155k away. Making 25k-ish a day seems like. Still touch and go.

Ant-Man & The Wasp made more than the first Guardians in it's Thursday Previews. Guardians made around 95 million. It was trending on line with Homecoming coming into the week with tracking. People are being cautious and still saying 100 to 105, I'm starting to think 120 million, which would double the first movie's opening.

I will say Jake Gyllenthall feels similarly to Oscar Issac being Apocalypse in the last X-Men movie - like the dude as an actor but the character match seems odd. Seems like he should be someone without as much physical presence and def not a handsome dude? Which maybe is how Jake will be portrayed? I guess Keaton was nothing like what I'd have wanted for Vulture, theoretically either but he worked.

Thought AM&W was a bit disappointing really. The best parts were spoiled by the trailer.

I remember a while back they were saying that this one was supposed to be a rom-com, but if that's the case, the movie didn't lean in to it enough. Where the first one was basically a heist movie, this one didn't quite know what it was supposed to be I think. The stuff with Scott and his daughter was still good.

Still worth it to see Paul Rudd mug for the camera for an hour and forty-five minutes.

Hard to do if you go to the theaters relatively often.

I believe I may have seen the Mission Impossible trailer 8 times, without ever desiring to see it once.

yeah ant-man/rudd as a character is great and this movie was fine but i really wanted something a little stronger. the two bad guys was a little weird, i wouldve preferred they focused more on ghost and gone deeper with her character— like she always said she was in pain but they really didnt show how much she was going through— and there was another weird thing she said that just... dropped to the floor and never came up again? it was weird. goggins was fine but felt completely unnecessary

One of these Ant-Man movies dropped its director and was heavily reworked/compressed to fit the Marvel house style. Somehow that's the good one. Not sure how that happened. Something something quantum realm.

The idea that you should be searching this for anything IW related is a marketing gimmick drummed up by the same folks so desperate to sell this they made sure we'd already seen every memorable moment before we bought a ticket.
