Ant-Man and the Wasp – A Podcast Film Review



Ant-Man’s second foray in his own Marvel Cinematic Universe film isn’t quite a solo adventure, as now he has a partner in Hope, who dons a high-powered suit as The Wasp.  They’re out to save her mother from the Quantum Realm, where she’s been presumed missing for the last thirty years.  Unfortunately, Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, is under house arrest and not quite able to get out and join in on the quest easily.  Meanwhile, a bevy of parties are out to steal the hi-tech suits before they can come into play.  Peyton Reed returns to direct Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas, along with newcomers in Laurence Fishburne and Michelle Pfeiffer.


Unfriended (2014)



The entirety of the film is the view from the laptop screen of teenager Blaire Lily,whose very private Skype conversation with boyfriend Mitch is rudely interrupted by a trio of friends looking to chat up the clique. It’s the first anniversary of the suicide of their classmate, Laura, who offed herself after being cyberbullied following the posting of a dreadfully embarrassing video of her on YouTube. When a sixth participant in the group chat appears, and Blaire begins to get private messages on Facebook from Laura’s dormant account, she immediately suspects one of them is playing some sort of very sick joke. Or, perhaps it is a malicious hacker. Or, perhaps worst of all, could it truly be Laura contacting them from beyond? If so, they’re all in trouble, as they’re told they will die if they leave the chat, and “Laura” has a lot of information to expose about them all they wouldn’t want anyone to know, especially within that very clique of friends.
