Not my favourite Marvel movie or character but this is still a fairly interesting entry into the MCU. The story just doesn't grab me all that much. But it's very different to most other MCU movies so it was cool to see some trippy scenes that we hadn't seen before. I liked the character a lot in Infinity War.
Going through my cupboards the other day and found this poster for 'Superman: The Movie', this poster is essentially 40 years old. I may one day frame it. If I had to pick my all time favourite movie, it would have to be this. This film essentially set the template for the current run of superhero flicks.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Movie Review
Directed By: Peyton Reed
Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Runtime: 118 minutes
On his last two days of house arrest, Scott Lang tries to balance being both a father and a superhero. Hope Van Dyne and Hank Pym, present Scott with an urgent mission that calls for Ant-man and The Wasp to fight side by side as they Uncover secrets from their past.
Ant-Man and the Wasp was a fun, enjoyable movie to watch. Paul Rudd returns as the tiny hero but this time is fighting alongside Evangeline Lilly (The Wasp) and they once again prove to have great chemistry. The films cgi is incredibly impressive and is used at a minimum for when it is really needed. The character development in this film isn't as good in the first especially when it comes to michelle pfeiffer’s new character Janet, her story is never really explained leaving the audience with some unanswered questions.Scott Lang's characteristics seem to have been slightly altered in the sequel from being very intelligent in the first and a slightly dim wit in this movie. The action sequences in the film are thrilling and exciting to watch and the film floods with hilarious one liners bound to make you chuckle. Ant-man and the Wasp isn't Marvel's best but still is still a brilliant movie that should be seen.

Recomendación quincenal: Spiderman
Creo que es un buen momento para hablar de Spiderman, puesto que en lo que queda de año pasarán por las salas de cines la película de Venom y Spiderman: Un nuevo universo.
Y no podría estar más emocionado por la película que hoy os recomiendo. Spiderman es una película a la que le tengo mucho cariño, por lo mucho que la veía cuando era un chaval. Pero no es sólo nostalgia, aún de mayor la sigo viendo y disfrutando.
Sam Raimi fue el indicado como director. Era un gran fanático del arácnido (especialmente de su época sesentera y setentera) y su experiencia previa con el terror de serie B ayuda mucho en algunas escenas. Por supuesto, los actores están muy bien elegidos y hacen un gran trabajo. El Duende Verde es un gran villano. El tema musical de Spiderman, compuesto por el maravilloso Danny Elfman, ya es mítico. La película es entretenida de principio a fin y también muy memorable (cuando el Tío Ben habla con Peter en el coche o la batalla final en la mansión abandonada son de esos momentos que dejan huella, para bien). Hay gente que dice que es tonta, pero las pocas veces que lo es, es el tipo correcto de tonto, el que encaja perfectamente con el héroe y además tiene sus escenas oscuras como la ya citada pelea en la mansión. La acción es buena, hay un cameo de Bruce Campbell, siempre alegra a los fans historietas clásicas de Spiderman...
Lo dicho, me encanta. Es de mis favoritas de superhéroes y favoritas en general. Si no la habéis visto todavía, no os la podéis perder

DOOMED! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN'S THE FANTASTIC FOUR, Marty Langford
The Fantastic Four hasn't had a very good run in films as of yet. The first film, which never made it to theatres and now available as a bootleg, had the worst luck of the bunch.
To be fair, the clips of the film look fairly cheesy and the film likely wouldn't have gone very far, but the stories of crushed potential, aborted fame, and sabotaged work make the film's intended failure--by producers and studios--all that more poignant.

Ok, I just wanna say this now, there maybe a lot of updates on this movie going forward. Mainly because we are both excited and intrigued by this feature. That’s right people, more of Todd Phillips’ and Joaquin Phoenix’ Joker movie. The latest is that Robert De Niro is set for a role as a talk show host in the film and is supposed to be a heavy influence on Phoenix’ character. Although people would normally put him as a villainess mob boss, apparently that isn’t the case and us here at A Glass Half Film are interested to see how De Niro fairs in a comic book movie. With Martin Scorsese behind the scenes we can on imagine this is a great thing. Thoughts on De Nero joining this Joker adaptation? Anyone you wanna see join the cast? Let us know in the comments below. GHF
Because they are really throwing every crazy element in the mix I have a feeling this could turn out a mess but hopefully I'll be wrong. Still gonna be really intrigued to check it out. Gotta be one of the 'stranger' comic book characters out there.
I must admit to having very little knowledge of this character but I am so up for this movie. The trailer looks like it should be a ton of fun. Let's hope DC can give us great movie.
