ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA – Review by Susan Granger

Just be thankful you didn’t squander your money at the box-office for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, one of the most worthless entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Paul Rudd’s third Ant-Man escapade is basically a family vacation gone wrong. His ex-con alter-ego Scott Lang, who was once fired from Baskin Robbins, is living it up in San Francisco as a minor celebrity who now has a best-selling memoir Look Out for the Little Guy! about his Avengers adventure.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA – Review by Susan Kamyab

Even though the newest Ant-Man didn’t quite meet my expectations, I did manage to have fun with it.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA – Review by Valerie Kalfrin

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania sends Marvel’s size-defying heroes on their biggest adventure beyond assisting the Avengers. Yet by teeing up another giant villain for Marvel’s ongoing cinematic universe, the film shrinks some of the duo’s quirky charm and relatable, everyday appeal.

It’s still a fun outing with likable characters, just not a fantastic voyage.

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME – Review by Lauren Anderson

In No Way Home, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker finds himself in a world where everyone knows his name and believes he murdered Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio.

In doing so, everyone Peter knows and loves will lose memory of who he is, but Peter’s willing to make that sacrifice.
