Sax Carr calls Marvel's Ant-Man one of the best Marvel movies to date.

The rise of superhero movies has certainly been a double edged sword. On one hand we get to see some of our favorite characters and stories turned into epic amazing visual spectacles. On the other hand sometimes those spectacles are the Nicolas Cage Ghostrider series. My point is that as a huge fan of Ant-Man I went into this movie with more than a little trepidation. Let me save you that trouble… the movie is good. It’s like “top 5 Marvel movies of all time” good. Its GOOD. Go see it. But if that’s not enough for you and you need, you know… a review. Well here one comes:

I was reading about one of my favorite action movies, Predator on Wikipedia, and I’m flabbergasted that it was generally panned by critics upon its release back in the summer of ‘87 (I also can’t believe I was eight when it came out; FUCK I’m old). At least the late, great Roger Ebert recognized some of the greatness of the film, giving it three out of four stars, and it makes a fairly respectable showing on several “best action movies of all time” lists. Me? I’d give it five stars and put it in the top 10 at least. It just doesn’t get much better than Predator, and that’s what I’ll be examining, and hopefully justifying, in this series of articles. I'll be posting one a week every Monday.

It was the best of trailers, it was the worst of trailers...It was the trailer of belief, it was the trailer of incredulity. It was the trailer of Light, it was the trailer of Darkness. It was the trailer of hope, it was the trailer of despair.

Sorry Chuck, but it was just too perfect. On Thursday, April 16th 2015, we got not one but two trailers for highly anticipated upcoming movies: Star Wars The Force Awakens and Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice. This was not by design, as the latter was leaked online and wasn’t intended to be officially released until the following Monday, but rarely does the average fan adhere to a movie studio’s plan. Regardless, you could watch both on the same day, which I did. Multiple times. And I can’t help but compare them and my reaction to them. These trailers crystallized why I’m far more worried about BvS than SW.
