La Última Bandera
Soy gran fan de Jack Nicholson, así que recordaba El Último Deber. Pero enterarme de que iban a hacer una secuela, y con Linklater de director, nada menos, me dejó muy descolocado.
Doc, Sal y Mueller son tres marines veteranos que después de décadas sin verse vuelven a juntarse para acompañar al primero en el funeral de su hijo, que ha muerto en Iraq.
Como decía al principio, me sigue sorprendiendo ver a Richard Linklater en una película así, impersonal, por así decirlo. Pero la verdad es que he acabado encantado. No es una película de grandes despliegues de dirección ni que cuente con una trama sorprendente llena de giros. Es una de esas películas de interminables conversaciones llenas de significado y de personajes. Me ha gustado mucho. También me gustó la primera parte (la tengo relativamente fresca), pero esta creo que lo ha hecho incluso más. Vemos aquí un mensaje profundamente amargo hacia la guerra, el ejército y el rumbo que ha tomado Estados Unidos en los últimos años. Vemos a esos viejos héroes cansados y decepcionados que están de vuelta de todo. Pero sobretodo está el guión con esos diálogos increíblemente buenos, ya sean de los que hacen reír o llorar. Resultan profundamente humanos. Es ahí donde Linklater gana.
Los tres protagonistas, eso trío indivisible, está en manos de tres grandes actores. Puede que la mayoría de veces se pierdan en productos para los cuales no tienen que esforzarse demasiado, pero aquí tienen un papel a su altura y se nota. Carell está más en su registro, un tipo callado y apocado al que la vida ha golpeado duro. Fishburne es el antiguo pendenciero que ha expiado sus pecados y se ha entregado a Dios. Es un personaje muy interesante y le sabe dar hasta ternura. Pero para mí el gran personaje es el de Sal, que es el que interpretó Nicholson. Es todo ruido, histrionismo e irreverencia, pero detrás de eso hay un hombre que está perdido, que no encuentra su sitio en el mundo moderno y que se siente profundamente incómodo, que vive en el ayer, como él mismo dice. Me ha encantado Cranston.

After the doom and gloom ending of Infinity War, critics are praising the new Ant-Man movie for its welcome lightheartedness. I wonder if that would have been the case if it was released at another moment in time, because I found this sequel to be quite problematic. It suffers from the thing that a lot of sequels suffer from; there is simply way too much happening to care about any of it. It arguably has three or four bad guys, the main one being a woman who is in constant agony because of an experiment gone wrong. Having our hero's deliberately stand in the way of the solution to her problem in order to find a missing family member, makes their cause seem somewhat unsympathetic. The overload of scientific nonsense that surrounds the plot is sometimes fun, but gets exhausting once we reach the halfway point and we're still watching characters talk about ludicrous science terms that we never really grasp anyway. The movie knows this (Paul Rudd gleefully says 'you guys just put the word Quantum in front of everything') and it admittedly had me laughing quite a bit for its goofball humor and wit. The cast is very likeable and I really dig Ant-Man's recurring musical theme. The unforgivable crime that the movie commits, however, is that there simply aren't enough Ant-Man and Wasp scenes. I heard people preferring this new one over the first installment, but I honestly wonder why. There are some really glaring and lazy plotholes, our main hero is too often reduced from 'skilled and courageous bumbling idiot' to 'just a bumbling idiot' and while the first one had a lot of standout sequences, like Lang's first experience in the suit, the heist with the team of ants, the fight with Falcon and that inventive battle with the Yellowjacket, this one has a short kitchen fight, and after that we have to wait to the very end of the movie for a good car chase and characters talking on intercoms to prevent a timer from reaching zero. Moderately fun but ultimately disappointing. 5.5/10
🇧🇷Homem-Formiga e a Vespa é divertido, dá pra passar o tempo e coisa e tal. Mas depois da explosão de criatividade de Thor Ragnarok, da força de Pantera Negra (e dos filmes do Capitão América) e da tragédia de Guerra Infinita, esse filme aqui acaba não tendo força ou peso, parecendo uma obra bem menor e protocolar quando comparado com os outros. Mas, pelo menos, Paul Rudd é sempre ótimo e tem uma interpretação ultra carismática de Evangeline Lilly, que tá merece comandar um projeto próprio. Se você não estiver esperando demais, vale a ida ao cinema.
🇨🇦 Ant-Man and the Wasp is fun, a good movie to kill the time and all. But after the explosion of creativity that was Thor Ragnarok, the gravitas of Black Panther (and Captain America’s films) and the tragedy of Infinity War, this one ends up not having the same strength or weight, paling in comparisson. But at least Paul Rudd is always a charmer and there’s a super charismatic performance from Evangeline Lilly, who’s more than ready to star in her own movies. If you’re not expecting too much, it well worth the trip to the movie theater.
Got challenged by @ai_shuma to make a child of MCU pairing. Dunno who to pair (Thorki? #plaaak ) so I went with recent MCU movie villain, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and Goliath (Laurence Fishburne). They both involved romantically during long late nights doing science (thank you Burn Gorman for this sentence, was referring to Geiszler and Gottlieb tho) Their child goes by the name Double G, an aspiring beatboxer. He was looking for hoodie for a beatbox match but accidentaly uses his mom's old suit. He can project giant ghastly imagery and uses his beatboxing skill to produce scary sounds. He hunts bad internet rapper (see FilthyFrank). His "hero" name is Aghast.

The latest installment of the Marvel series relies on tropes from the first film, as well as a flimsy story that insults its audience's intelligence. While Scott Lang is living under house arrest, he is attempts to rekindle his relationship with his daughter, while also trying to stay away from using his Ant-Man suit. I am convinced that without Paul Rudd and Michael Peña's comedic prowess, this movie would be one of the worst superhero movies to come out. The first reason for this is the direction. While there isn't anything bad about it, there also isn't anything good. The transitions didn't really work, and it seemed like the actors weren't given much to work with in regard to the emotional beats of the film. The script however is this film's worst problem. Normally I am not a fan of cheap comedic moments, but that was the ONLY thing keeping this story interesting. There wasn't any real conflict, as the only bad guy is Walton Goggins' character, who is painted as a total fool early on. There is no sense of urgency, as there is never any moment where the audience is worried about the protagonists. There were also too many convenient things that occurred in order to move the story along. Things just seemed to happen in the story that worked out for the benefit of the good guys without any incentive. There were also too many unmotivated twists that were only there to fool the audience. Unless it is extremely well thought out, if your bad guy becomes a good guy at the end of the movie there is a problem. This seemed more of a cash grab than a movie, as no one involved in production seemed to care about putting forth effort into making a quality movie with a story to match.
In this #tedreviews we’ll be talking about Ant-Man and the Wasp. This follows Scott Lang, Hope Van Dyne, and Hank Pym as they try to rescue Janet Van Dyne from the Quantum Realm. This is a fun, passable break to the heaviness that was Infinity War but I don’t think it meets the bar of the first Ant-Man. #Paulrudd is just as likable but #evangelinelily is really the main focus as she comes into her own as The Wasp. I liked how they gave #michaeldouglas a bit more to do this time even though his character is still mainly used for exposition and watch out for #michaelpena as well. The film really digs into the zany scientific nature of the character and his 60’s roots which I really dug, but the film has some major narrative problems. I liked how the stakes were a lot more personal to the main characters instead of the fate of the entire world but the film feels kind of bloated. #hannahjohnkamen does fine as the “villain” ghost and even though her character is pretty interesting, I wasn’t as invested as I think the film wanted me to be in her. I was disappointed to see #waltongoggins wasted again as a throw away bad guy but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film that much. The film leans more towards the comedic side when it comes to marvel movies and like any comedy, jokes will hit or miss. That being said, the jokes in here didn’t land with me as much as the ones in the first one did. I think this film does have a lot more creative and inventive use of powers and effects than the first though, and I loved every bit of it. Overall, I had a good time with this movie but I don’t think it’s a must see unless your a big Marvel fan. #antmanandthewasp#antman#marvel#peytonreed#michellepfeiffer#laurencefishburne#thewasp#ghost#ant#truthserum

My next review will be about Ant-man and the Wasp. I watched this movie yesterday at the theatre and I really enjoyed it. It’s not the best marvel movie but it is one of the funniest. Paul Rudd gives a great performance as well as Evangeline Lilly, but Michael Pena really steals the show. He is so funny and anytime he was on screen I couldn’t stop laughing, same with the Russian guy. The villain was a really cool complex villain as well. The post credits scene will have you shook. I give Ant-man and the wasp an A-
