This week, Ant-Man is the subject — and Central Track’s own Javier Fuentes, who reviewed the film for the site earlier this month, is the guest host.
Javier and I saw a lot of the same things in this one — namely, that it has some great in it, but it never assembles those parts into a great movie. Still, good movies have their place, and we have no trouble ticking off the things that we enjoyed.
Eventually, though, our conversation transitions into a discussion on how Marvel's current approach to other movies affects this particular effort — and we both think they're making some mistakes there. Basically, there's a lot of curious decision-making afoot in the wider comic book movie world these days, so we give that its due, too.
