    Oddly this and the first Alien vs Predator were the only two I saw growing up. Had a bit of nostalgia for this one catching it at the dollar theater with my dad and both of us liking it; I think it pretty objectively holds up well. While the settings of the first two are interesting, the way this one throws the characters together mysteriously feels clever, along with one character’s reveal by the end that plays well on his casting.

    Not great, but not nearly as bad as its reputation made me expect. I think with some small but important tweaks to the script it could’ve worked with a more serious direction; as much as I like Shane Black, felt like it skewed a little heavier on the jokes than the balance that made the classics work.

    Great cast and some really good moments in this, but doesn’t come together nearly as strongly as the first.

    Thought this was fun enough, definitely a little weirdly slight, especially going in thinking the trailers made it seem like it’d be weirdly heavy for an Ant-Man movie. Was looking forward to seeing Jonathan Majors in full-on Kang mode and his performance was good, though the writing maybe didn’t sell him as the big villain he’ll be going forward quite yet. But that always seemed liked it’d be a tricky balance with him being the focus here, and I’m still…
