Deadpool 2 Movie Review

Filthy language…just what I needed.

With the success of Deadpool, the studio would be crazy not to make a sequel. But like so many movies sequels do tend to suck balls. Deadpool 2 isn’t one of them!

Ryan Reynolds is the perfect Deadpool and glad he returned with more innuendos, filthy language, and fourth wall breaking!

Deadpool is now taking out bad guys but when Cable (Josh Brolin) arrives with a vengeance to kill mutant kid with fire abilities, Deadpool is wanting to ignore him but help him at the same time.

Like the trailer shows he must put together a group of people to help him take out Cable. Going into a Deadpool movie, you’re expecting laughs, a lot of them, but what really surprised me was the sensitive side. I teared up a few times! Domino (Zazie Beetz) was a total badass! Proves that good luck is definitely a superpower.

There were so many moments, that I can’t say because that would spoil the moment, that were so cleverly placed or mentioned that had me dying of laughter. Though this review is on the vague side, I can say Deadpool was every that is meant to be, surprising with the direction they decided to go on, and proved that Ryan Reynolds was born to play Wilson!

Don’t know if they will make a 3 film, however the way it ended it does make it possible for a third movie. The big question is if this movie beats out the first and really their two separate movies. The first was a basic movie of a guy trying to save his girlfriend and this one is a guy with superpowers choosing if he really wants to be a hero or not. I love both! If I need a laugh Deadpool is there to help and I couldn’t ask for anything more!

Avengers: Infinity War Movie Review (Spoiler-Free)

I’m going to be very,very, vague in this review, so fear in reading spoilers. But since it’s been exactly an hour since leaving the theater, that you should tell you the state my mind is currently in.

Infinity War is the third Avengers movie and the 19th film in the MCU, ten years! I’m basically going to describe the official trailer, because I stop watching anything pass that. As we know, trailers tend to show way more than they should, so I stay clear. Again, vague review!

Thanos (Josh Brolin) the main, big baddie is on the hunt for the 6 infinity stones that have all been mentioned throughout almost every film. Each stone has a specific power and when combined in Thanos’s golden glove of power, he ultimately becomes unstoppable.

Thanos is by far the most badass villain in the MCU! What they did with this character definitely caught me off guard. It’s one thing to make some “evil” but to illustrate their mind set and show that bad guys don’t see their actions as bad because they feel like their justified and that to me is a very dark and dangers person.  A villain that when they come on screen you feel just as scared and helpless as the heroes.

So they Avengers must team up once again and try to get as many helping hands as possible, which includes Black Panther/ Wakanda, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Again, ten years worth of movies are now coming together in one is a big and difficult task. Though, when I heard about it did not think it wouldn’t work and that did not change when I watched the trailer for the first time. They exceed my expectations!

I was wondering how they were going to make the events of Civil War play out in this movie. If you haven’t watched Civil War I really don’t know what you are doing with your life. Tony and Steve have basically unfriended and unfollowed each other on every social media platform. But when the universe is at stake you kind of have to put your issues aside and put on your big panties on and get to work.

There were moments where it was jumping from one location to the next too much but you do have to consider that their in different parts at different times and so many characters that you have to try and get each one. I do and will, watch it again, because first time you are so invested in the story that so much is happening that you don’t really see the little details that are happening in the same scene to notice.

The cast in amazing, which we know because we have been following for years but it’s something else entirely when their finally together and integrating with other heroes and see the chemistry between that makes it all the more special and awesome!

Of course there’s still humor but it does feel darker and heavier than the rest of the films and although I tear eyed a few times, it felt rewarding. I want a deep and worthy and memorable movie that I have been waiting for since high school! THIS MOVIE BROUGHT IT!

It was everything I thought it would be and more. It was heart breaking, funny, action from beginning to end, the cast proves that they can shine individually and together in one film, and proves once again that Marvel has just improved over time…and for that THANK YOU!

I will say this, stay until the very end of the credits because their is more. I only say that for the non-fans because you always stay after past the credits when it’s Marvel!

 

Marvel’s Black Panther Movie Review

Wakanda forever!

T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) has returned to his home of Wakanda, and is prepared to be crowned king, after the death of his father in Civil War. One of the things that surprised me about the movie, wasn’t how awesome the actions sequences were, although they were pretty cool, but what the struggles T’Challa has to face. Being King is no easy task!

Being Black Panther, the King of Wakanda, protecting his people, doing right by his father etc. you realize that were are forced to meet this high expectation but what it comes down to is we all have to do what we believe is right and deal with the consequences of that head on.

The movie deals with a lot of family and the issues of it and I loved it! Especially Shuri (Letitia Wright) who plays T’Challa’s sister and a hell of an inventor and super intelligent, and a badass! I would love to see her and Tony in the same room!

THE WOMEN ARE BADASSES!!!! I mean you have Michonne and Maz in a movie you bet your ass these women bring it! Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) plays T’Challa ex and believes that hiding Wakanda and all the resources puts them in the wrong. The relationship between the two is a constant battle but levelness. She’s not one to just be Queen and stand by him, she wants to act on what she preaches and believes that sacrificing something that has been hidden can make the world a better place.

Okoye (Danai Gurira) is a soldier through and through. Her oath lies with whoever sits in the throne and I’ve never seen someone be put in a difficult position when their very loyalty is questioned. The battle within herself what such an interesting thing to see and I loved it!

T’Challa is then challenged for the title by Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). One of the things that people did have troubles with is that we don’t see Killmonger until half way into the movie and I would have liked to have had more of him but I loved T’Challa more, so I wasn’t too upset it by it. What they did beautifully was make the villain have his reasons and you do end up seeing them. Though wrong as they are, you do have a bit of a moment and think “does he have a point?” Rare when a movie does that and does it right.

The action sequences were mind blowing and add to some kick ass tech, I couldn’t have asked for a better duo! The culture of it all was just so beautiful and fascinating to me and wanted more and more.

Black Panther was a movie I knew was going to be good and it ended up being amazing. I had a great time watching it. I ended up loving Black Panther more as well at Chadwick Boseman. The women were portray as intelligent, loyal, fearless warriors and I couldn’t be prouder! Idols my nieces can look up too!

If you haven’t seen Black Panther, DO IT! Another great one Marvel!

There is no reason why you shouldn’t already know this but there are two post credit scenes! 

Thor: Ragnorak Movie Review

A different Thor, basically Thor is playing Chris Hemsworth. What I’m saying is that it’s a hilarious Thor movie!

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returns to Asgar to prevent armageddon or Ragnarok from happening. When he arrives he finds not his father Odin but his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) pretending to be Odin, which we’ve known since the last Thor movie.

Just when they start to resolve their family issues, Hela (Cate Blanchett) arrives to cause chaos.  Breaks Thor’s hammer and sends Loki and Thor to another planet and does it with her evilness attitude with humor attached. Ragnorak is definitely to be considered a comedy movie above a Marvel film. Not complaining just stating.

Now Thor is trapped in another planet run by Jeff Goldblum’s character, Grandmaster, knowing Hela is releasing hell on Asgard and to make his day worse his is forced to fight good o’ Hulk! Though the Grandmaster isn’t a very good guy he isn’t the main villain and does what he was tended to do and that is to bring two Avengers together.

Just like we see a different side of Thor, his humor side, we see another that we’ve never seen before and that’s Hulk talk and have a personality. The movie does a great job in directing it from a comedy, action, MCU movie to a comedy buddy movie. What I really enjoyed watching was Hulk having his own person instead of having him be the bad part of Bruce Banner with the whole Jekyl and Hyde persona.

Seeing how successful Guardians has become I know that they were able to see MCU as something more than just action and superheroes fighting. I had a blast watching it and definitely laughed out loud through the whole movie. Although some humor lines were a bit out of place where the scene was trying to be serious, I didn’t mind it. This is the 15th MCU movie and with Infinity War just another movie away, Black Panther, I liked them going to a lighter route because Infinity is most likely going to be a heavy movie. So why not have a little more fun before we ball our eyes out.

Again since it is the 15th movie the chemistry between the actors have already proved worthy and that was no different when they welcomed a new member, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson). Overall, I loved Ragnarok and it just makes waiting for Infinity War that much more difficult. Thor is different but you welcome the change. Well frickin done Taika Waititi (Director/ Korg).
