I Ant That Impressed


Yesterday's viewing: Ant-Man. I have to say, I didn't find this nearly as engaging as most of the other Marvel movies. A lot of the humor felt like it was trying too hard, and the "dramatic" dialog was terrible. Plus, the whole concept is so silly that even acknowledging up­front how silly it was didn't make it feel less silly. Well, at least it did have one or two fun little action-y moments. Unfortunately, though, mostly it just made me think about how much I hate ants.

I really, really hate ants.

  1. I liked Ant-Man. It wasn't perfect -- like a lot of movies, it wastes Judy Greer, and Evangeline Lilly to an extent -- but I liked the silliness and the humor, particularly from Michael Peña.

    Then again, I don't really have an opinion one way or another about ants.

    1. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for that level of silliness? Or maybe my antipathy towards ants is just that difficult to overcome. :)

    1. And I didn't trust a single one of the little bastards. :)
