Bugging out: Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ is a small story worth telling

Given the torturous history of its production. I was unsure what to expect going into Ant-Man, the latest installation in Marvel’s vast universe of films.

Sitting in the theater last Thursday, however, my fears were quickly allayed. Rest easy, true believers; Ant-Man is pretty darn good.

Much ado about nothing: ‘Seinfeld’ comes to Hulu

When Seinfeld premiered in July of 1989, critics and audiences didn’t quite know what to make of it. Everything about it ran counter to what traditional sitcoms looked like up to that point.

It was also funny and smarter than just about anything on TV at the time.
