Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania 2023
The Ant-Man series continues to offer something cool and slightly different for Marvel fans. There are some really cool looking aliens in this one that reminded me of Stars Wars a lot. I know we see aliens in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise but the ones in this movie were more creatively designed to me.
Sometimes Kang is really cool but there are times when he is underwhelming. Majors nails the quiet menace needed for the character but the…
Kick-Ass 2 2013

Tales of Halloween 2015

Rated PG in the days when violence was taboo but sex was okay. (Look for Madonna’s boobs)
Nonetheless a dude gets covered in cement and buried in the ocean. Straight traumatized me as a kid
Only Beastmaster had a more shocking first 20 minutes
The Blank is cool
I describe Smart Watches as “DickTracy Watches”
The musical score is…
