review

I would classify this as a “pot” movie because the humor in this movie is very adult and juvenile. The story is pretty lame. Watched the whole movie, but was losing interest by the end!

review

OMG! Paul finally pushed my flavor-meter towards otters – I am pretty sure that’s the right term for a “gay man who is very hairy all over his body, but is smaller in frame and weighs considerably less than a bear.”

I am glad that more superheros are being explored as feature films, this is a good way for us newbies to get a general idea of the comic book world history. Yes, I am a nerd, but a different kind. I liked the humor in this movie: just enough at just the right time. Michael Peña was hilarious as Luis. Even the brief introduction to entomology was interesting.

I am eager to see Doctor Strange when it comes out. I never even heard of him!
