FlixChatter Review: Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)

I can't believe it's been three years since Ant-Man came out. Perhaps because we saw the character in Captain America: Civil War, it felt like I had just seen him recently. This movie actually takes place following the aftermath of Captain America 3, which explains why Ant-Man isn't fighting with his fellow Avengers in Infinity …

In all honesty, up until fairly recently, I had been mostly blasé about this film, given my disappointments with Sir Ridley Scott's movies …
