Ant-Man - Pint Sized Powerhouse!

Yes, there is really a super hero named Ant-Man.  I didn't know that until I started seeing some trailers for the new Ant-Man movie.  I know some of you die-hard comic book lovers are shocked at my lack of Ant-Man knowledge. 

So, when I was offered the chance to see Ant-Man, well, I didn't know what I was getting myself into.  Sure, Marvel does a great job with the movies, and sure, I love all the Avengers movies, and sure, it was a chance to see Paul Rudd... so, I wasn't too worried.  But I had no expectations going in.

I can now proudly announce that I am a huge Ant-Man fan!  Okay, maybe I shouldn't use the word "huge" when referring to Ant-Man.  Sorry, little guy! 

What is it about, you ask?

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

I loved every minute of this movie!  Well, except when Scott Lang, aka Paul Rudd got punched in his handsome face... but I digress.  I loved the story development, I loved the journey Scott Lang took to discover his "inner hero". Add in great action sequences and you've got yourself a great movie.  Plus, this show was funny!  Really funny!  I loved when Scott Lang was trying to learn how to control the ants, very funny stuff (and a little creepy-crawly too!)

Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas were great and Corey Stoll was a great bad guy! I especially loved Ant-Man's human side-kicks! 

Go see Ant-Man!  I think you'll really like it, and maybe even get a new appreciation for ants.  Oh yeah, and don't forget to stay through the ending credits.  There are two surprises!

I got to see this in 3D IMAX and wow!  Wow!  let me say it again... Wow!  If you get a chance, I highly recommend seeing this in 3D.  It was incredible!

I believe I will be taking all my family to see Ant-Man this weekend!  It opens today, July 17th in theaters nationwide.  Have fun!

Disclosure:  I was given the opportunity to see this movie for the purpose of a review.  The opinions are all my own and free of charge!

Shaun the Sheep

I love movies!  I especially love fun, funny, family-friendly movies!  Shaun the Sheep seems to be all of those wrapped up in one big fluffy ball of awesome!

Shaun the Sheep is from the same guys that brought you Wallace and Grommit, and Chicken Run.  It's about a sheep named Shaun. 
When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for.  A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.

You can check out the trailer here!  It looks like a really fun movie!  I'm pretty excited to see it!  You can also check it out at!
