My Official Review of Ant-Man

Honestly, I thought this movie was going to be incredibly dumb.  On a scale of one to ten my interest in seeing it was about one half.  But then my brother, the movie hating king of the universe, saw it. And liked it!  A lot! And then other people I trust saw and liked it and so then I just had to go and see it for myself.  Well done, Marvel.  Well done.    


Paul Rudd's charm and comedic timing
Mexican sidekick Luis stole the show.  And made great waffles.
Evangeline Lilly is actually a believable female superhero
It did NOT turn into Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and "Look at me inside this giant cheerio!"
The superpower wasn't always just staying small
The immortal question: "Why don't you just call the Avengers?"
That entire Baskin-Robbins scene
Fun, self-deprecating, and witty
Makes you feel like an evil genius when you stay until the very end for the secret scene
I did not look at my phone once
Used a Chipotle BOGO coupon before the movie, used my Groupon to see the movie, and a DQ gift card after the movie.  Savings trifecta!


I kept thinking Dr. Cross was Lex Luthor
I kept thinking Hope was Parker Posey
Hank Pym is just a weird name
Judy Greer as the ex-wife/mom bit character- (AGAIN) What is it with this woman?!
Still wasn't able to make me like ants

I have to give this movie two antennae, way up.  Such a surprise and probably one of the best superhero movies I have seen.  I think Iron Man remains the champ, but this one is right up there. And yes, Luke, you can be Ant Man for Halloween.
