MLA: Road to Endgame
Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) dir. Peyton Reed
Wazzuuuuuuuuup, so anyway, this guy, Ant-Man, gets out of jail and starts being a badass. And that's when he gets a film. And people's all like, "I want nothing to do with you. Look at my hairdo. I'm all business." And then Scotty's like, "You know what, people? My film's awesome, and that's probably because it doesn't have any pressure of being great, it's just fun. But damn, if I want to kiss you!" But then you fast-forward and they're all like into each other, right? And then Scotty's like, "You know what, I can't tell you this, but I'm gonna go trashing the airport with Captain America in his movie!" Then people said, "I can't believe you split like that! Smell you later, dummy!" So Scotty goes on to have a second film, and he won't admit it, but his heart is all like, "Damn! I thought people would appreciate my light-hearted, entertaining as hell humour and creative action sequences. And Michael Douglas, yo. But fate brought them back together, and then people's heart is all, "I'm worried that I can't trust him. And he's gonna screw up again and ruin everything." And in my heart, it's all like, "That fancy raspberry filling represents Marvel's greatness. And we're days away from going out of business in Endgame! Oooh!" So, anyway, this guy, Paul Rudd, is a treasure and we must protect him, you know?
I hope this sums up why this film, as imperfect and silly as it is, is pure gold. Take yourself too serious and you get The Dark World, have fun filming and you get this gem.
A part of the journey is the end, so we'll finish it with @g_reelz fun facts about Ant-Man and the Wasp, as always. And we are just days away from getting to the end of a chapter, so stay tuned for all our Avengers: Endgame reviews. Whatever it takes!
