Forum rules
You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

I didn't see the 2015 production of Ant-Man, so I didn't have many preconceptions of the character other than what I had seen in "Civil War".

I didn't think this was a great movie but it was okay for an evening's entertainment. Michael Douglas ego-filled Hank Pym was entertaining enough and Fishburne was good, as he usually is. The expected Stan Lee cameo made me snort and the ever shrinking and expanding props were well used.

And of course, the Infinity Wars tie-in just made me smile and groan at the same time.

Anyone else?

I don't think it's as easy to judge the movie fairly without having seen Ant-Man. These productions rely in some measure on continuity.

That said, I enjoyed the first one more.

My lingering impression: My God, Michelle Pfeiffer is absolutely luminous even at her age. Wow.
There's a difference between thinking Brie Larson should consider her words with more care because some of her rhetoric is ill-timed and badly-aimed ... and wanting her to be silent because women should conform to your behavioral standards, then hating on Captain Marvel. One might mark you a curmudgeon; the other brands you a misogynist.
