100 WORD FILM REVIEWS
Ant-Man and the Wasp

Paul Rudd is a being composed of charisma and genial good humor, and that’s never more apparent then when he shares the screen with two of the most pissy and uninteresting characters in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, and Hope van Dyne, played by Evangeline Lilly. But even Rudd’s considerable charm isn’t enough to distract from the fact that the only people worth paying attention to: Hannah John-Kamen’s Ghost and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet van Dyne, get the least screen time. I’d rather have spent two hours with Randall Park’s put-upon FBI agent.

Avengers: Infinity War

In ordinary circumstances, it would be very hard to recommend a movie that only gets good after two full hours, and flirts with badness for much of its runtime. But this is no ordinary movie, and as you’ve already spent - I shit you not - 38 hours with this group of characters, you may as well suck it up and deal with some awkward pacing and jokes that don’t quite land. All of this glorious mess culminates in a stunning sequence in which the hoariest of comic book tropes is turned into a moment of rare cinematic beauty.

Black Panther

Ryan Coogler has proven time and time again that he understands the delicate relationship between a black man and their son. An otherworldly connection, sharing both the strengths and demons throughout the bloodline. This aspect of parenthood is explored in Black Panther. Aside from the nuances, amazing plot twists, and sheer entertainment of the film, there are several call backs for the trained eye: a brief Lion King moment, Angela Basset giving us Storm vibes, and jokes that only the Black community would appreciate. Surpasses all expectations. History in the making. Top five Marvel film of all time. Wakanda forever.

Two very different comedies on this episode of Drunk Monkeys Radio: Thor Ragnarok brings a Flight of the Conchords twist to an old formula, and Yorgos Lanthimos gets darker (yes darker than The Lobster) in The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
