    Do YOU agree or disagree with this partial copypasta with random Anonymous bulletin board blurbs about the movie?:

I disagree with the negative ones for the most part. My daughters and I are big fans of the film. I heartily endorse variety among superhero films. This was the most Disney-esque of the Marvel films, which I think makes a lot of sense, since in my opinion the sales pitch for the Ant Man franchise was always "Honey I Shrunk the Kids meets the Marvel Universe."

    Why is AM&tW flopping?

    Because I pirated it.

I found that one amusing.


    You seriously thought Ant Man and The Wasp was going to do HISTORICAL BLACK ACHIEVEMENT and EVERYONE DIES PART ONE numbers?

A beautifully succinct analysis.

    In my humble opinion, it didn't feel like it had any passion behind it, even compared to the other MCU movies. I got the impression that nobody associated gave a crap about the film- Paul Rudd especially, which is unfortunate since he's almost always on screen as the title character.

Two words to rebut that: "Michael Douglas."

    I'm honestly baffled by box office

I would say the same except I think maybe the movie wasn't promoted properly.

    You can already tell how the movie will play out from the trailer and how much jokes will be forced in to make up for its lack of solid plot

I purposely avoid trailers because I think they give away too much of the plot and spoil the best scenes.

    I personally liked the movie a fair bit, but feel as if it needed a stronger villain instead of...not really having one, one that really measured up to the heroes, anyway. If nothing else, set it mostly in the Quantum Realm

This movie had three different antagonists: (1) Ghost; (2) Birch; and (3) the Feds. On top of all that, it had the world's coolest animal as an antagonist - a creature so weird it has inspired serious scientists to think it may have originated on another planet - the tiny tardigrade!

    it was a great movie about fathers and daughters. Every scene of Rudd and his daughter was beautiful

Exactly. Scott and Cassie. Hank and Hope. Bill and Ava. And then on top of that, mother and daughter - Janet and Hope - and husband and wife - Hank and Janet. This was a superhero film driven by relationships.

    The movie is literally Iron Man with ants.

I have no idea what movie that person watched.

    This film was going to under perform, but having to wait til World Cup ends makes it worse.

That comment is odd. The movie is not underperforming outside the USA. It hasn't been released outside the USA. It can't perform until after it's been released.

Incidentally, I think Marvel was very smart to delay release until after the World Cup has ended.
