Ant-Man  
An entertaining if formulaic bit of super-hero adventuring.  Paul Rudd is sardoniclly amusing, Evangalline Lilly is is gruff and annoyed since this would be a Wasp movie if it weren't for an over-protective father.  Corey Stoll is a bit bland as the evil science corporate ass.  But he's more than balanced by Michael Pena's sidekick character.  And the scenes with the ants were all pretty great.  I do wonder why Stoll's Cross was doing his shrink-ray testing using adorable lambs instead of anything else.  Was there a sale?  Couldn't find even more cute baby otters or ducklings to squish?

I watched it and thought it was mostly good, but I *hated* all the Wasp subplots.

The fact that Hope knows how to run the suit, can run the suit, and wants to run the suit? ANNOYING AS FUCK given Rudd. Hank Pym is a complete dickhead, sure, but they didn't sell Pym *hard enough* as "preventing his daughter from knowing how to use the suit" and it wound up being "asshole for no reason" instead of "asshole for stupid protective semi-abusive reason"

Also I was waiting for them to pay off the "brain damage comes from shrinking" thing by, y'know, AT SOME POINT showing Evil Dude shrinking himself *before* showing him as brain-damaged-from-shrinking. Because at *no point* prior to the "I'm evil now, because shrinking" monologue did the villain actually shrink.
