    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★½

    Written and directed by Wes Anderson. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" (set in the fictional war-torn European country Zubrowka in the 1930s) tells the story of two people: Monsieur Gustave H., a concierge, and one of his employees, the lobby boy Zero. Showcasing the friendship they form as they team up for several misadventures while trying to prove Gustave's innocence after he was framed for murder.

    Though "Ant-Man" himself is an interesting main character, Scott Lang without the suit is pretty dull. Him accompanied with a predictable plot and poorly written villain, this movie does not stand up against…
