At The Movies with TB: Ant Man Movie Review!

July 22, 2015

Paul-Rudd-Ant-Man-Movie

A bloke goes to jail and gets out … for whistle-blowing, being sacked and burgling the bosses that sacked him after he dobbed on them … or something.

A scientist can make little people … shhhh … it’s been a secret for decades …

The scientist’s assistant now runs the scientists lab after the scientist thumped the assistant and was then sacked from his own business (? yeah, that’s what I thought too).

The assistant finally finds out how to shrink living cells … notwithstanding the – Experimental Death of cuddly lambs C34 and C35 (one can only assume 33 preceded them).

The scientist’s daughter works for the assistant but plots with her dad.

The scientist’s tricks the ex-con into burgling his house – and putting on the Ant-Man suit …

The ex-con “accidentally” shrinks himself … Whoaa!

Now the ex-con has an ex-wife and a little daughter who he can’t visit ’cause he doesn’t have any money … so he agrees to become the Ant-Man to make a few quid (so he can see his daughter once in a while) and control lots of ants … ’cause they can lift fifty times their own weight y’know!

The scientist’s daughter gets ropey ’cause she wants to wear the ant suit and she knows the lab “inside out”.

The Ant-Man has three dopey mates … naturally … the Latino bloke can throw his voice into many other actors as he tells his tales … funny …

Ant-Man and the other three … one’s a Russian … finally blow up a big lab while the assistant scientist who has managed to shrink himself to look like a wasp goes around zapping stuff with two blue laser weapons …

The Wasp Man visits the little girl and Ant Man is not happy, there’s a big ant made who lives happily ever after …

Ant Man and the Wasp fight. Ant Man wins.

Ant Man is really good friends with his wife and her new fiancé – (did I mention he’s a cop?) – and his little daughter is happy and has a new pet …

Ant Man is then in the scientist’s house and the scientist catches his daughter and Ant Man.
Pros: Funny script, great graphics, well acted (even Michael Douglas), worth a big screen visit, The Minister likes Marvel movies (credit for TB 🙂 )

Cons: Bit slow in places, it is a fkn Marvel movie FFS!

The Minister ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

    Thank you TB. That’s another movie the rest of us won’t have to see.

    Although you could’ve just said:

    “”Ant Man and the Wasp fight. Ant Man wins.””

    THE END.

    #oh l`m pretty sure you`ll have a hard time avoiding it once it hits fta-tv, which l`ve noticed hammers the same movies thru the repeat cycle quite regularly, swordfish, matrix, pulp-fiction etc

    The booing of Adam Goodes has become a disgrace, rednecks have taken over the football too.

    An Eagles fan, who was ejected from Sunday’s game at Domain Stadium for an allegedly racist remark directed at Swans star Adam Goodes, says his comment was “off-the-cuff banter” and he was “humiliated” and spoken to like a criminal over the incident.
    The man said his comment, “get back to the zoo”, was aimed at general play, was not intended to be racist, and that his ejection was an overreaction.

    What a complete f**kwit, but then he is from Perth. Hawthorn is the other group that has been prominent in the behaviour and they’re f**kwits too.

    I’m quite happy to discuss weekend penalty rates and it’s probably easiest on TB’s movie thread.

    It’s probably inevitable that penalty rates will be reduced in retail and hospitality. But just reducing them as proposed by the Productivity Commission doesn’t look likely.

    I’d go back to my suggestion – that bona fide full time students can work weekends in those sectors without penalty rates.

    Get weekends occupied by students and full time workers will get more of the Monday to Friday roster.

    that bona fide full time students can work weekends in those sectors without penalty rates.

    Why, is that because full time students are less deserving of a weekend than someone else?

    Are full time students shown to be less interested in watching football or catching up with friends and families than those “productive” workers?

    How do full time students so differ from other people to not deserve a weekend along with the remainder of society?

    Full-time students, can work secondary and tertiary jobs, on weekends, for less, too?

    The penalty rate regime in retail & hospitality will change (I think). it’s just a matter of how to best manage that and providing the work for students seems reasonable. Most will be on loaded casual rates in any event.

    The penalty rate regime in retail & hospitality will change (I think).

    Yet you still supply no reasonable argument why it should, even when pressed.

    Do you think students should be sent back down the mines again too?

    Have I been pressed on this? Goodness!

    It’s a matter of practicality. Students will be happy to work for about $29 an hour. That’s $19 minimum base rate, plus 25% for weekend plus 20% casual loading.

    I think that passes a reasonableness test for a full time student

    Ah, yomm, who has exhibited a long record of caring for workers, is doing it for the students. How sweet. Your generosity and expansiveness of “what’s good fer ’em” is duly noted 😉

    ToM … do you work on weekends?

    He’s not a student, so has obviously “earned” his weekend more than they have.

    Besides, that’s when he surfs, you can’t expect him to work then!

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
