Carl Alves Carl Alves's blog:
The first Ant Man movie was one of those stealth Marvel movies featuring a relatively unknown character that kind of snuck up audiences and was a surprise hit. Ant Man and Wasp came in with far more fanfare, since the characters were now more established and well known. I was big fan of the first... Read more of this blog post »

It’s face-meltingly hot in the summer. Saying 29C at 8:40PM doesn’t do justice to the humidity and the smell of overripe city. Yesterday was a misery of work, dentist, dehydration, migraine, and heat. It took most of today to recover. As a result, the best I could do for dinner was a spicy chicke...

Today, we'll be going over how to strengthen a weak plot, and we'll be using ANT-MAN AND THE WASP for our writing sample. The film's writing is uncharacteristically weak for Marvel, but it makes for good examples. Spoilers ahead.
