  • Deadpool

    Deadpool 2016

    ★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2016

    I feel like pointing out the obvious stuff: the banter is hit or miss, and often tiresome; the CG is super terrible; Colossus looks weird and sounds weirder (I remember him being simple and kind-hearted, not a doofus); breaking the fourth wall is more schtick than subversion. But OK, fine, whatever — deviating from the Marvel formula isn’t a totally bad thing.

  • Sicario

    Sicario 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Oct, 2016

    With Roger Deakins shooting and Josh Brolin frowning, it feels like you’ve stepped right out of No Country for Old Men into an equally barren landscape of nothing but bad choices and bad people — only even less funny!

    Christopher Reeve, goddammit.

    Also, I actually appreciate the preposterous ending more as I get older. (Maybe as much as I enjoyed it when I was a kid.) It's not sci-fi, it's myth.

  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2009

    Watched 27 Nov, 2011

    A movie featuring a team of mutant super-assassins hunting down Wolverine … And it sucks? Nice job, assfaces.
