Film Review: Deadpool 2 (USA, 2018) Gives Us The Merc With The Mouth And A Warm Fuzzy Heart

Considering the risks 20th Century Fox took in greenlighting Deadpool, the 2016 film was released and became a global success, it seemed the risk now fell on the shoulders of its sequel. Deadpool 2 markets itself as “it feels bigger” and in some ways this is true and in others it’s not. The film leans heavily into its overt crassness, gore and ridiculousness but also comes away with some surprising character development and warmth for our merc with the mouth. Necessary plot mentions ahead ….... Continue Reading

Blu-Ray Review: Deadpool (MA15+, USA, 2016)

For a while there it looked like the only version of Deadpool we’d ever see on the big screen was the somewhat cringe-inducing one we saw in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Studio execs at Fox were unsure about how to move forward with the character and make it a viable film. But when some test footage got leaked online back in 2012 much to the surprise and rapture of fans the execs finally decided to push forward. Now some 4 years later we finally have the finished product. In the lead up there’s been a prolific marketing campaign full of gag infused trailers and promo spots, but can it truly live up to all the hype?... Continue Reading
