Ant-Man and the Wasp ★★★

This film is hella craftsmanly. You can see the three parallel conflicts as they develop almost like you're straight reading the script with an overview running alongside. This isn't necessarily a bad thing: it means there's not a ton of surprise or nuance in store, but it also makes the narrative very satisfying. It's all very functional. It's also probably the funniest Marvel movie outside of Ragnarok, at least to my awful personal taste in humor. And at least these offshoot side-films have some cinematic identity, unlike Infinity War. It's not amazing, but it works
