Deadpool 2 (2018) 7.6/10 Recommended. I love Fox’s approach to a superhero movie. I’m excluding Fantastic 4 from that claim, obviously. It seems like Fox thinks out of the box when it comes to its Marvel Universe. In a more recent context, Logan, X-Men: Apocalypse, and even the first Deadpool seemingly had unorthodox plots regarding the typical optimistic Marvel storylines. Frankly, Deadpool 2 didn’t have a strong plot. He was chasing after something he logically shouldn’t have. Unlike Logan, the sincerity of the situation wasn’t employed with common sense and Deadpool’s character development shifted completely. There’s no point in talking about the roots of the movie though, because nobody went to see Deadpool for a heart-warming superhero story. People went to see it for its gory violence and dark comedy. That’s what America loves, right? From a violence standpoint, it wasn’t as visually intense as the first Deadpool. There was a significant decrease in action alone, but more specifically a decline in coreographed, creative action. The most iconic scenes from the first movie involve Deadpool killing his enemies in abnormal ways, followed with snappy one-liners. There are a few prominent examples of these sequences in D2, but there aren’t as many as I hoped for. As for the comedy, I would gladly state that it was equal, if not surpassing, of the original’s realm. There are a lot more fourth wall breaks, pop culture references, and even MCU ties. Overall, it was a lot more funny than it was violent. Although this installment is far inferior than the original, it was still plenty of fun to watch. More movies need to follow the Deadpool Universe’s course of looking to please the fans more than the crowd. Obviously, when producers don’t get caught in the mix, the writers are able to push the boundaries, which is what pleases everyone in the end. #deadpool#deadpool2#ryanreynolds#fox#mcu#xmen#wolverine#movie#review#moviereview
#bookclub Movie Review (3/5): In a generation of a sex comedies led by young 20 somethings, this is the very rare case where the entire cast is played by senior citizens. The entire structure of “Book Club” is completely conventional and does not really take any risks of attempting originality. The script is standard but the humor itself works very well. Most of the jokes are spot on and work effectively enough to keep the target audience entertained. The cast alone work very well together. Considering the amount of raunchy comedies we receive on a yearly basis, generally involving teens, this will be approved by its older demographic. #film#movie#moviereview#moviereviews#comedy#drama#romance#sexcomedy#seniorcitizen#book#club#janefonda#dianekeaton#instafollow#wmkmoviereviews
🚨NEW EPISODE FT. DRUNK ERICA🚨(*link in bio*) Welcome to episode 92 of the Chumpcast! We’ve got a full Chump Cave this week as the crew is back with long time guest Drunk Ass Erica. It would be safe to call this our musical episode, even though the last thing I wanted to hear was a bad rendition of a 2000s pop song. More importantly, we discussed Ryan Reynolds latest box office killer, DEADPOOL 2. You won’t want to miss Brick trying to sell us on why it was better than Infinity War. Spoilers for Deadpool 2 from 1:02:45 until 1:31:25, but make sure you stick around after that for our weekly recommendations.
