Loved the building gag.

Hopefully they have a lot of clever playing with size ideas/gags stunts. The van chase one's were equally clever I think.

It's looking fun and a nice progression of the first one.

That looks awesome. And yeah, the shrinking building gag was great. Really looking forward to this.

Not really. I was fully expecting it.

Once they announced that Captain Marvel was 90s, and this was going into the Quantum Realm, it was obvious no film was happening between the two Infinity films. I fully expect they will enter the Quantum Realm with background indicators of an event in New York, a big spinning disc appearing perhaps. So that when they re-emerge, either at the very end, or post credits, it will be post Infinity War, and the audience will know exactly when it takes place.

Yeah, not too confusing, will just mean that I'll have to put the Ant-Man and The Wasp DVD before Infinity War when it arrives.

Blimey, Captain America: The First Avenger was set 95% before the 4 films that came before it and we all kept up.

So first up, I always thought it was Walter Goggins. Not Walton. Watching the final credits I thought someone had made a typo. But a few minutes later, when we got to the scrolling cast list, same spelling. You learn something new everyday.

So onto the film.

The deaging technology is getting better. While both Douglas and Fishbourne are good, Pfeiffer look pretty damn spectacular.

Plot wise it's a comedy chase movie pretty much out of the 80s, that they don't make anymore. More Inner space meets 3 Men and a Baby, meets Short Circuit meets Kindergarden Cop rather than the Honey I Shrunk the Kids meets Sneakers of the first.

This would have been one to avoid the trailers. While they didn't give away the plot, they pretty much hinted at every major action scene.

As expected, Wasp pretty much owned the film the straight person, with Ant Man the comedy one.

Hannah John Kamen gave a spot on and layered performance as Ghost.

Emotionally, the parent daughter relationships was were the film did well, carrying on, and even expanding from the first.

The Pena scene of him relating what happened was another highlight.

Stay for the midcredits scene. The end one not really worth it.

Yeah, totally agree with what you've said there, great movie, but yes, a case of too much revealed in the trailers again. Not to the extent of say a Terminator Genysis trailer campaign where it gave away pretty much all the major plot points away by the final trailer, but enough to have you anticipating pretty much every action scene in the film. It also highlighted a dialogue change over the ferry sequence where a gigantified Ant-Man jokes that he eats people, which was missing in favour of a line more plot driven, which was a shame as that was a fun bit. Overall though, a great movie, and yes, mid credits scene is well worth a watch and quite significant, to say more would be to spoil.

I saw the mid credit scene but had to use the loo so missed the post credit scene.
If anyone wants to spoiler it, it would be appreciated.

It was a giant ant playing the drums followed by a message 'Ant-Man and the Waso will return?'

Yeah, basically if you've watched the trailers you've essentially seen it already.

For the end credit scene yes. The mid credit scene is a different matter.

You can usually dip out after the first post credit scene these days. The only one worth waiting for recently was Spider-Man: Homecoming and that was satirising what a waste of time they are.

I really enjoyed that more than the first film and already wanna see it again. My second favourite superhero movie this year after Infinity War. I liked Black Panther but don't think it was anywhere near as amazing as it's made out to be.

As with Mission: Impossible I'm glad I only watched the first trailer as the second gave away loads of the action.

As someone who's never read any Ant-Man I had no clue about Ghost being gender swapped until just before watching the film and after recently overcoming its villain problem it was bold to see Marvel sidestep it by making her the antagonist rather than the all-out enemy. Although I'll admit the scene where she reveals all including her grudge against Hank initially made me think of Whiplash, Hela and Killmonger but credit where its due for making me root for her just as much as Hank, Hope and Scott. While Walton Goggins Sonny is a nice enough side villain to keep the action ticking over.

Luis' narration will officially never get tired and who else wants to learn that card trick?

The only con I can think of is not enough Pfeiffer, who still looks terrific by the way.

But as for the credits scenes
Spoiler:
it was pretty obvious what was gonna happen. I figured Janet might be the obvious choice just to be cruel enough after all that effort to get her back but it didn't trample all over her rescue when she wasn't the only one to not get off lightly.

And who else thinks what she said about time vortexes was a big clue if the rumours are anything to go by?

I kind of laughed and groaned at the second one.

Saw it three times (once on my own, second with a friend who is incapable of going to the cinema alone, and third time with my kids).

I did not really like it a lot on the first viewing (I think I was in a mood), but I liked it a lot more the second time and even more again on the third.

I still think Walton Goggins was given a duff role (he was better served in Tomb Raider this year), but the rest of the story is pretty tight. I must say I prefer the first just a smidge but otherwise, I think I will enjoy rewatching this with the kids again and again, just like the first.

I watched it again this weekend and still love it. But I had two random thoughts afterwards.

First, I really hope Luis is around in Avengers 4 to explain to Scott what went down because I might be a bit disappointed if he isn't. Yeah I know he wasn't there to see any of it but I'm sure he saw the news, assuming there was anyone left to report it, and simply because he can't be gone too goddamnit!!!

And second I'd love to see Bill Foster return, with Nick Fury in the same film. Just to see if it confuses anyone. :lol:

It is so ridiculous because they are nothing alike, in looks or acting style. Almost hilarious that this keeps coming up, what sad times we live in.

I know. It's why I'd love to be there when someone who can't tell them apart sees them together and goes "Huh!".

Those two I could never understand how anyone could confuse them, except for other reasons of course.

But then it took me well over 10 to 15 years to realise that Ethan Hawker and Josh Hartnett were different people. So I can't really criticise anyone else.
