    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★½

    I honestly can't muster up more than an "ehh" for this film.

    It wasn't offensively bad, nor was it anything to write home about. I find myself nitpicking little details, only to realize that I don't really care enough to spend the time thinking about this movie.

    ★★★★½

    World building. This is what I take away from CHILDREN OF MEN. Alfonso Cuaron did such an amazing job of developing the world in which these characters live, that it is hard to think of them anywhere else, even though they are not that far removed from the world we live in now. I'm not a huge fan of BLADE RUNNER, but Ridley Scott did the same thing there.
