Ant-Man Review on Novel Ninja

I keep most of my stuff on reviews and writing over on my editing blog, Novel Ninja. However, I should really do more cross-linking. Ant-Man is a good place to start, since I know a lot of you are going to be interested in that. I posted my review on Friday; I know at least one other author here on The Catholic Geeks will do a separate review, but for now you can take a look at what I had to say.

If you’re looking for the specifically-Catholic, “is this family friendly?” review, then I’ll add this to what I already wrote: no sleaze (the only women being visually exploited are in momentary flashbacks that are practically blink-and-miss-it even for a visually-oriented male such as myself), and no overt immorality other than two obvious things. First, that the main character’s divorced, and his ex-wife is remarried; and second, it’s a heist movie, so there’s lying and stealing. The latter is easily explained to your kids. The former depends on what you’re teaching your kids; my Catholic homeschooling neighbor hasn’t yet started any of that, and her eldest is 9.
