Ant-Man * Peyton Reed (2015)

The on demand catalogue of my TV provider already is pretty poor and then I choose a poor title from that catalogue as well…

“Ant-Man” is a Marvel, a comic put to film. Actually it is just another superhero film but without much spectacle or ‘comic-film’ effects. A scientist (Hank Pym, Michael Douglas) invented a machine that can reduce the space between atoms without loosing their original functionality. Having made a suit with that functionality, the wearer can shrink to the size of an ant while using his original powers. Of course bad people have bad plans and the good guys have to prevent the bad guys from doing bad things. You know the story.

The film is not really boring, but neither did I find it very entertaining. It is all pretty predictable and the film has a kids movie atmosphere. Perhaps a film to see a bit from when it happens to be on television, but I would not recommend you to try to see it.

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.


Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
