Deadpool 2 was a delight. Josh Brolin sure is having himself a career resurgence.

Love to see this franchise continues to make fun of, or outright IGNORE, the many missteps the X-Men guys made over the years.

Especially the very end when he revisits Deadpool from 2009.

Probably my favorite of all the Marvel franchise movies.

Did you find it was the 30+ crowd that was doing the most laugh out loud? Seemed there were so many older cultural references the youngins didn't quite always get.

Location: Too deep in crease.
The jokes had a bit more substance and reference with less that just flat out leaned on being dirty.

Wicked trailer, looks like it could be a wicked movie. Might be up Chris' alley.

Best heist movie I've seen in a long time.

"The Fugitive" is 25 years old this year. Great review on its lasting legacy. Have to admit when the movie came out I really liked it but the strange thing is I probably like it just as much now as I did then and I'm sure I've watched it 10+ times over the years.

Just watched this -- brilliant. Great casting with unconventional but amazing writing. Music supervision and music scoring spot on. Holy shit balls. :lol:

Finally saw "Colossal" which the creators said was an allegory for addiction and the unintended consequences that can result, but I think it's way more apt at putting in very stark, albeit silly terms, abusive relationships and toxic masculinity. I really wish this movie had come out just a couple years later than it did.

Watched "The Predator" tonight. Holy shit what a mess. I wouldn't have gone to see it but a friend of mine asked to go so, meh, whatever. It's not boring at least.

One puck. Not quite worth "The Bettman" but not worth your time. The only good part IMO was Jacob Tremblay.

Watched "Baby Driver" on DVD, which may end up being the last major studio movie appearance of Kevin Spacey.

A ridiculously loaded cast for such a straightforward heist/car chase film. I do like Edgar Wright though, he's always trying something distinctly different than most of his contemporaries. It's worth it just to watch one of the long-take scenes in this one. I give it 3.5 pucks, even though I thought it petered out badly right at the end. Looking at this one, I think Marvel/Disney missed out on something big when they more or less fired Wright from his own Ant-Man project.

A Quiet Place

Brilliant. Equal parts family drama, horror movie, and sci-fi dystopic adventure. Also one of the smallest casts of any feature film ever. If I had one criticism, albeit a very slight one, I kinda/sorta would have liked the monstrous creatures who make the world these very few characters exhibit to have not been shown in such close-up detail, though I kinda understand why they did so, but to explain any further would be spoilery.

I think they've been hinting at a sequel, which I hope doesn't happen. Movie's just fine where it is and where it leaves off.

Too big a box office on the first one for there not to be a sequel. Hopefully they let the baby out of the box. Sheez.

Yeah, a sequel is already planned for 2020. I just hope it doesn't lose the edge of the first one, which it could very easily do.
