Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – JenEric Movie Review

How This Works – Read Other Reviews

Hello Cinephiles,

Today we’re talking about the 2023 film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.


There were elements that worked and it was interesting to see Ant-Man as a lead in something epic, but it wasn’t the right story for him.

That being said, it felt like the main story was ripped straight from early science fiction and specifically from the old Flash Gordon serials.

Score: 0


There were two sets of characters and it felt like they were in very different movies. Janet and Hope were in an epic fantasy, while the rest were in a YA portal fantasy comedy. The character development was all over the place and felt disjointed.

I did like the story arc with Darren/M.O.D.O.K., and the secondary characters were fascinating.

Points for avoiding useless romantic drama, but they lose points for having no idea what to do with Hope, again.

Bill Murray’s character was an unsympathetic clone of Lando.

Kang was BORING. The infodumping speeches and mediocre threats were the worst part of the movie.

Score: 0.5


Like the rest of the movie, it felt disconnected. The epic fantasy prose of Janet, Kang, and most of the rest of the cast were uncomfortable juxtaposed with Scott, Cassie, Darren, and Hank’s quippy superhero dialogue.

There are times it worked, like with the goo man who wanted holes, but overall it wasn’t great.

Score: 0.5

Visuals and Music

The movie’s visuals were absolutely engrossing. I loved all the details, races, and weird shit everywhere. It was a wonder to watch and so much fun.

The music was well done and didn’t take itself too seriously, but fell into the same problem of feeling like Ant-Man music in an Epic Fantasy movie.

Score: 1


This movie was surprisingly chill for all its over the top drama. It was a lot of fun to watch and I can see myself rewatching just for the visuals. The kids were glued to their seats and most of the adults liked it.

Score: 1


The weakest of the three Ant-Man movies, mostly because it wasn’t an Ant-Man movie but a vapid copy of Flash Gordon with Ant-Man and company. The story is messy and disjointed with elements that shouldn’t go together being forced to interact. The villain is one of the blandest most boring villains in MCU history.

The visuals however, were ABSOLUTELY fabulous and Paul Rudd is hilarious, both of those make the movie way better than it has any right to be.

Final Score: 3 Stars out of 5

2015 Movie Ranking

Happy Christmas Eve or December 24th,

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I love stories. I love writing them, telling them, dissecting them, and watching them.

Movies can be amazing or absolutely horrible. Below is the list of movies that came out this year that I saw and how I rank them. There are a lot more that I want to see.

My ranking is about how much fun I had and how willing I’d be to re-watch them.

  1. Inside Out
  2. The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
  3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  4. The Peanuts Movie
  5. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  6. Jurassic World
  7. San Andreas
  8. Jupiter Ascending (It was a fun, don’t think too hard, space soap-opera.)
  9. Hotel Transylvania 2
  10. The Good Dinosaur
  11. Tomorrowland (It had its issues but it was fun and hopeful.)
  12. Spectre
  13. Ant-Man (Not enough of the Heist aspect)
  14. Avengers: Age of Ultron (Tried to do too much in too little time)
  15. Home
  16. The Intern (Should be in the top 10 but the ending was too abrupt and didn’t resolve enough.)
  17. The Duff
  18. Cinderella
  19. American Ultra
  20. Minions
  21. The Transporter Refueled (It was fun but awkward and forgettable.)
  22. Fantastic Four (A complete mess. The only movie I regret seeing on this list.)

Have yourself some Happy Holidays.
