Endgame meets expectations without really ever exceeding them.
Ant-Man and the Wasp, while not strictly mining for laughs, is never overly serious. It’s even shorter than other recent Marvel movies, never outstaying its welcome. Like heavy metal power ballads, the film may not be among the most essential entries in the franchise, but like the first Ant-Man, it’s a welcome change of pace. Even fanboys need an occasional breather.
They’ve nailed the formula at this stage, they know what fans want and they bring their A game every time now. It’s a more than worthy addition to the collection.
This is a Netflix Original and it was pushed pretty well and they spent money the hook here is that this was a passion project of director Duncan Jones, he’s tried to get this made for a long ass time and now he finally did it, he had this script even before he made Moon, by the way keep an eye out for Sam Rockwell making a fun cameo in his Moon character, now the tricky thing with a director and a personal passion project is that it might be so inside him it doesn’t work for the masses. It’s often a case that a director is too close to a project and Mute seems like another example of this.
It was a visual masterpiece, as it needed to be given the manner of the lead character, and Russell Carpenter should take a bow for that.
The Fundamentals of Caring is a great feel good movie and much of this is because of the writing from Rob Burnett who also directs this movie. Burnett can’t claim all the credit though as the story is based on a novel by Jonathan Evison.
