Review: ‘Deadpool 2’

The tight ass in red tights is back!

When I reviewed the first “Deadpool” movie, I literally loved it. It’s one of the few superhero movies that I watched more than once. A lot of that has to do with the fact that it’s just not a superhero movie. It was a comedy that happened to be in a superhero universe. “Deadpool 2” follows suit to this very well.

Directed by “Atomic Blonde” director David Leitch, “Deadpool 2” follows everyone favorite potty-mouthed mercenary Wade Wilson as he tries to find his place after heartbreak happens to him. During his “figuring out life” phase, Deadpool must form his own team to protect a young mutant child from a future mutant, Cable, who is looking to kill him.

This movie is just as good as the first. Deadpool continues to be one of my favorite superhero movie franchises. The movie seems just as fresh and new. None of it came across as overdone or overplayed. It played to its strength, which is the writing, the acting, and the action. At first watch, it seemed too much like the original. It wasn’t until I watched them back-to-back that I saw that they play into each other but

“Deadpool 2” is way less gory than the what was in the first movie. There’s still a lot of gore but it’s not anything close to what was featured in “Deadpool.” It almost felt like they were trying to make a family friendly R rated movie. That sounds like a double negative but that’s what it felt like it was doing. It didn’t hurt the movie but it was just very noticeable.

I really enjoyed “Deadpool 2.” I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first one but that was only because you can only enjoy something like that only once. I highly recommend this. Especially if you have seen the first one. I also, watch the credits as well. There are some extra scenes there.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Celine Dion teams up with Deadpool for the best music video ever

Bet you never knew you needed a Celine Dion and Deadpool Music Video

Celine Dion and Deadpool teamed up for a music video for a song off of the “Deadpool 2” soundtrack. You read that correctly. Celine Dion and Ryan Reynolds were in a music video together. Words cannot describe how good the music video is.

Released yesterday, the video is for Celine’s song “Ashes.” This isn’t a review for it because frankly, its Celine Dion. No rating system will do justice to the talent that she possesses in her pinky finger. But the video for it is a classic Celine video. She’s on a stage singing her little heart out. During her performance, Deadpool is being Deadpool. He puts on his suit and heels dances his little heart out. The video ends with a little quip between Celine and Deadpool.

Honestly, this was the greatest thing that I didn’t know I needed in my life. Like, It’s everything. Both are sassy and both are just great. This music video was perfect for the movie and what it represents. I’m all for this music video.

“Deadpool 2” is out on May 18 in theaters.

Sink your teeth into the trailer for the Spider-Man spin-off, ‘Venom’

It’s time to get a little dark in the “Venom” Trailer”

Sony released the trailer the upcoming spin-off movie for the “Spider-Man” franchise. Yep, the franchise that can’t even decide what they want it to be after the countless number of films finally has a spin-off. One would think nailing down a direction would be first on the list, but I guess that why I don’t work in the film industry. Also, are we just going to forget that Venom was in the awful “Spider-Man 3?”

“Venom” stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist that is infected with an alien symbiote that bonds with Brock and tries to help Brock reach his potential. Typically in the Marvel universe, the Venom character has been a villain. Most famously, Venom is the one of the archenemies of Spider-Man. Since it’s in the Sony Marvel Universe, Venom is going with the anti-hero route. The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer, who is best known for his first feature film “Zombieland.”

“Venom” doesn’t look your typical superhero/Marvel film. The trailer does give off this extremely gritty vibe to it. The film doesn’t have a rating yet, but don’t be surprised if it doesn’t have an R rating. The way that the movie looks to be shoot and presented is one that would terrify the children that go to this movie with their unexpecting parents. Marvel seems to be trying to give the movies like this one that rating after the success of “Deadpool” and “Logan.”

This is the first trailer to include the first look at the Venom suit. The suit itself look like extremely badass and frankly, quite terrifying. It’s the thing that nightmares make when you take a bunch acid mixed with heroin. It wouldn’t be Venom if he didn’t terrify people. The movie does look like it will be extremely good.

Venom will be out in theatres on October 5th, 2018.

Thor loses his hair in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ trailer

thor-sm

Marvel is just the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to movie trailers. They decided to grace us with the trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok.” And did it really kind of make the Thor franchise seem more interesting than it has before.

“Thor: Ragnarok” takes place after the events of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and see Thor being held against his will by Sakaar. His hammer was destroyed and his home of Asgard is under attack. In order to protect his home, he must survive and defeat this friend, The Incredible Hulk. Dun duh dun.

The trailer was decently good. It wasn’t as great as some of the other superhero movie trailers we’ve seen so far but it didn’t really need to. It still was able to show what the plot is and grab people’s attention without being mind-blowing. It really grabbed my interested as soon as they showed Hela, the villain in the movie, destroying Thor’s hammer. It was like “Damn, what’s Thor going to do without that hammer?”

While I understand the haircut, it looks less like Thor and more like Chris Hemsworth pretending to be Thor. Right now, the illusion of who is playing Thor is showing and it’s not a bad change but one just kinda like “eh?” We already knew about the change so it’s nothing surprising but it’s just strange to see Thor without his hair of gold – like his mother.  I’m rather interested to see how it gets all tied into the whole store because he doesn’t start off with the haircut.

This also looks like a Thor movie that I want to see. The ones before it didn’t really seem that appealing. This one just seems different and like something we haven’t seen before. I welcome that because it’s sad to see a superhero get overshadowed by others. Thor has always seemed like the Aquaman of the Marvel universe. The only thing that has me worried is a number of crossovers the Marvel universe has been doing lately. They have Iron Man showing up in

They have Iron Man showing up in “Spider-Man Homecoming” and now you have The Incredible Hulk in this movie. It seems like they have this plan for movies franchise that is slightly struggling. The plan is to throw popular characters in the movie in order to get tickets and box office sales up. Before I comment on these plans, I will wait to see the movies and how much the characters influence the movie.

“Thor: Ragnarok” is scheduled to come out the same time as all the over superhero movies – in November. So you know this movie will be the sleeper hit.
