4. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania took viewers deep into the quantum realm, bringing with it high expectations for another exhilarating chapter in the MCU. But, despite its ambitious scope and the promise of a fantastical micro-universe, the movie kind of missed the mark and left fans and critics alike underwhelmed. It did officially introduce us to my favorite MCU villain, Kang the Conqueror, so I do like to give it kudos for that.

The movie's shortfall came partly from its story's execution which, while visually stunning, lacked the cohesive storytelling and character depth that we have come to expect based on previous MCU movies. The plot, revolving around the exploration of the quantum realm, presented a prime opportunity for imaginative storytelling. But it often felt cluttered and unfocused, leading to a sense of disconnect from the Ant-Man series' previous charm and warmth. Also, while the movie showcased some impressive visual effects, they weren't enough to compensate for the story's shortcomings.

Those aforementioned previous Ant-Man movies kept the stakes relatively low, and that's why they were worked. They were palette-cleansers. Quantumania wanted to be alarger-than-life Avengers movie without any of the ch

Also, it pains me so much to say this, but I really did not enjoy Michelle Pfeiffer's Janet at all in this movie. She kind of ruined it for me.
