Finally, after a long wait, the third instalment of the Ant-Man saga, dubbed “Ant-Man & Wasp Quantumania,” has hit theatres all around the world and will be taking cinephiles and the MCU into Phase 5. The movie is also introducing the MCU’s most formidable villain to date, dubbed “Kang The Conqueror.” If you’re someone who’s scouring the internet for similar films, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a few suggestions for movies to try if you loved “Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania.”
Major Grom: Plague Doctor (2021)
Igor Grom, a major in the St. Petersburg Police Department, is without question noted, but not renowned, for his willingness to put himself in harm’s way for the sake of righteousness. Nevertheless, as is so frequently the case, the government and organizations do not safeguard competent cops. In his hometown, unfairness abounds, and courts and officials have been compromised. Justice guarantors are not tolerated in this bizarre version of St. Petersburg. When a mysterious newcomer in the garb of the Plague Doctor appears, the status quo is abruptly shifted. Igor is selfless and cares more about helping others than he does about himself. He has a deep appreciation for fairness and cannot bear it when the system fails to punish those responsible for punishment.
The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)
This timeless work was hailed as a technological marvel when it was first released. The visuals have clearly aged, but it’s still entertaining to watch the protagonist shrink and grow in different settings. The film’s story kicks into gear rather quickly; however, it takes a bit for Scott Carey to really shrink in size. The film’s smartness lies in its portrayal of his mysterious illness as a vehicle for telling a personal narrative. It’s all quite thrilling, and when Scott accidentally crumples the cellar and is thought to be killed, things really heat up. Once there, he must adapt to his environment in order to kill a tarantula and stay alive.
The Attack Of The 50-Foot Woman (1958)
Nancy has a fascinating past that includes drunkenness and a stint in a psychiatric facility, making her a likeable protagonist. Her jerk of a partner, Harry, is also cheating on her with his mistress. Obviously, no one trusts Nancy when she claims to have spoken with an extraterrestrial. But, after that, she grows to a monstrous size. The best parts of the movie are, unsurprisingly, the ones involving a huge Nancy. It’s both hilarious and heartwarming to see a gigantic lady go for her partner’s lover and murder her. The film is entertaining blunder; however, it is handled better than I imagined. There is also some pleasant, albeit oversimplified, character development.
Fantastic Voyage (1966)
The concept is amusing: for one hour only, you may shrink to miniature size. A researcher from the former Soviet Union has found a method to render the cycle infinite, opening up countless possibilities to weaponize it. Once the researcher defected to the West, there was an assault on his life. The world’s competing superpowers would stop at nothing to prevent the United States from gaining access to such valuable knowledge. Hence, the guy is left in a comatose state with clots of blood in his brain. A submarine and its occupants are reduced to microsize and inserted inside his veins to heal him. Unfortunately, after getting in, things mysteriously spiralled out of control.
Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Armed adventurers arrive at a remote peninsula, only to find that it is home to a variety of ancient animals, all of whom answer to the powerful KONG! The squad, walled off from help, must fight for their lives in Kong’s territory. The amazing paradise that Kong once ruled over has been taken over by the horrific creatures who live at the earth’s centre. They may take over the world if they’re not stopped. Kong is a magnificent beast, deserving of the moniker he has been given. Although the inhabitants of the deep are only throwaway archetypes of the great Kong, the peninsula itself is wonderful and strikingly gorgeous.
The film centres on Paul Safronic, a Boston citizen who learns of the discovery while watching the evening news at a crowded pub. Paul’s dream is to make a life with his new bride, Audrey, in the house they shared as children. Paul and Audrey chose to downsize after being convinced to do so by a former buddy who wanted to reap the benefits of downsizing and by some inspiring TV commercials. Paul and Audrey have decided to proceed. The Malthusian financial hypothesis that population growth would eventually outstrip the world’s ability to generate resources is a major theme of the film. Throughout the movie, this notion serves as a recurring theme of dread, shifting the focus from global warming and ecological destruction to the more intimate issue of running away from one’s troubles.
