Rated PG-13 for Sci-fi action/violence, 103 minutes, Comedy/Sci-fi/Action

Compare to: Iron Man (2008) and some other superhero movie

While you could argue with results, it won’t stop Marvel. Captain America, Rocket Raccoon, and now Ant-Man. Right off I don’t mind telling you that this is one of the better Marvel adaptions though that doesn’t say much does it? It gets as good as Guardians of the Galaxy and it gets as bad as Thor: The Dark World.

A bit of action, a bit of comedy, a little bit of drama- Ant-Man has it all but does it have the right amounts in the right places? Millions of people who haven’t seen it yet are sure to agree! This is a MARVEL movie, after all! Ah, just playing. Continue reading

As for whether or not you’ll enjoy the film may be a completely different animal than whether or not this is a good film, so…how long ya got? Continue reading

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence, gunplay and action throughout, Running time 136 minutes, Action/Adventure

Compare to: Man of Steel (2013), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

Ohhh another comic book movie! How fun! Summer must be right around the corner! Here comes another by-the-book explosion extravaganza that’s basically a huge ad for action figures. Right?

Thankfully, Captain America: The Winter Soldier defies every expectation of dumbed-down comic book movies that Hollywood has so earnestly built up in the last decade or so. It’s about time, Marvel. You can only hinge so much on Robert Downey Jr’s charisma. Continue reading

If ya didn’t know, Marvel is expanding their horizons. It broke the mold with finally having a massive team movie, all with the characters’ separate films; but now it’s blasting off into the last frontier. I’m hoping this one is as good as it looks. I don’t like to report news really but this feels worth it. For the MBTI people, here they are typed.

Clicky clicky. Continue reading
