One of the Marvel superhero which is often forgotten because let's face it. The name is not helping and all we heard again and again is that the movie has been cancelled either the actor left or the director just simply quit. I can tell you now that after all that drama, Ant-Man can be consider a success, well at least for me. This show deserve a 4 out of 5 stars and I will tell you personally why. 


Remember Guardian of the Galaxy? Ant-Man gives out the same vibe in the movie. They took a really fun twist on telling the story of this particular heroes. His ability to talk to ants and at the same time shrink himself whenever he likes takes the movie to a whole new perspective. The humours in the movie was not forceful and we also see a different type of fighting perspective in it. Aside from that, the movie also touches on the history of Ant-Man while making sure that it been told in the easiest way possible. The cameo appearance from another Avengers member also was indeed one of the best fight in the movie. 


Certain parts of the movie feels a little longer than it should. One was the training sequence, while its good to show how is the training done it feels like much of the flirting in the training is just not needed, or simply I just demand more action. The suit should have taken much more time in getting used to it since it's something new for everyone but he manage to just control its usage in an incredible timing (shown in most of the fight especially with Falcon). Beside that, they did not mention much about Hank Pym time of using the suit. I would love to know a little more other than his wife is missing after she used to suit to stop a rocket. 


This particular superhero movie has been cancelled ample of times and also having director and their actor walking out but it turns out to be a much better movie compare to the rest. I would highly recommend this movie if you enjoy the watching Marvel on screen. Please stay longer as they have 2 ending credit scenes and thanks for reading.

Back then when I was young, I watched Terminator 2: Judgement Day and it still is one of my favourite Terminator up to date. Fast forward 7 years later,  Terminator Genisys is set to ensure that Terminator is not forgotten in the movie industry. Arnold Schwarzenegger (which name I had to copy and paste from the web) once again take on the role of the T-800 the ever old robot which seems to be running forever but this time, the past has changed. If you ask me, comparing between this Terminator and the one before with Christian Bale, Terminator Salvation, I would say Genisys is a much better movie. 


The action in the movie is good. This time we get front sit view on how the resistance works and also their fight towards ending the war. Arnold is back on his robot side with the T-800 and I would personally say it is the highlight of the movie. That is because his stiffness acting really plays the robot character well. The main character played by Emilia Clarke shows a lot of power and also much better readiness this time in facing terminators. 


Confusion is the biggest problem in this movie. There are flashback which are left unanswered. If the terminator was sent back to the past, who sent if it is not John Conner! I NEED TO KNOW! Besides the timeline, I think the dialogue in the movie was close to none. While I was a fan of full action movie, but this is no Chinese Kung-fu movie where I was busy looking at their fighting choreography.


At the very least we seen progression in the Terminator franchise. Salvation was all over the place and as much as I love the actors, none of them did a good job. I don't blame them, I blame the written plot that is the problem. Then again this is much better of the other Terminator but still nothing beats Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Still go and watch it if you are a Terminator fan, as I am sure this is the last time Arnold will be late.
