Yes, And #8: The Michael Pena Theory of Everything
as well as SIX weekly recommendations...
This week’s edition includes six curated recommendations PLUS my no-spoilers review on Ant-Man 3 and The Michael Peña Theory of Everything.
This movie’s plot relies on Michelle Pfeiffer’s character spending THIRTY YEARS in the quantum realm and, during the interlude between Ant-Man 2 and 3, NEVER SPEAKING A DAMN WORD ABOUT IT TO ANYONE. Not even a historical regulation hottie like Pfeiffer could pull off something like this!
Let me repeat myself: a lot of the dialogue between Fifedog, Mikey Douglas, and Freckles from LOST is about no one knowing anything about the previous THIRTY YEARS of Madame Quantum Fife’s life.
It would be like if in Cast Away, Tom Hanks was rescued and THEN DIDN’T SPEAK ABOUT HIS TIME AS A CAST AWAY. But also times six because he was on that island for 5 years. PFEIFFER WAS THERE FOR 30 YEARS.
In a movie about the multiverse, quantum realm, and language barriers being bridged by drinking goo, THIS IS THE MOST UNREALISTIC ASPECT.

I discovered him on ESPN’s Page 2 my first year of college in 2001 and his writing and podcasting have been fixtures of my week ever since. This interview on how he built - and sold - his podcast business to Spotify for $250 milly is FASCINATING.”
