Got an offer for cheap now TV movie sub so I've been catching up on films I've missed.
I was expecting it to be a bit shite after all the production trouble but it was fun. Not the best Marvel movie but by no means the worst. It had an interesting spin on Hank Pym's story for the comic fans and Paul Rudd is always watchable.
Also really enjoyable. I've read the book before and thought that Matt Damon would be good and he was. It's rare to see a hard sci fi movie with such a warm tone. If I was to look for a flaw it's that it's a bit light on the actual science compared to the book but that's ok.
Fast and Furious 7
Absolutely ludricous, it's not really worth pointing out the logical flaws in a movie where they parachute a Dodge Charger trophy truck out of a plane . I've always been a fan of the F&F movies and I liked this but I think they may be tipping over too far into the silliness with the stunts and famous faces. It felt a bit like an Expendables movie which isn't really a good thing imo.
Pretty disappointed with this. I've always enjoyed Clint Eastwood movies but this felt like a poor effort from him. It didn't have his usual style. I don't generally like modern war movies (as in ones set in post 9/11 Middle East) so it may be my problem, I think Hurt Locker is the only one I've really enjoyed. It wasn't a terrible movie but considering that Eastwood has made 4 of my all time favourite movies it was disappointing.
