    Deadpool 2

    ★★★½

    Hot take: Better than Infinity War.

    March 2016 Scavenger Hunt

    Film #1/Task #1
    An unconventional romantic film.


    I decided to focus my reviews on the task, as opposed to the film as a whole.

    Downey and Kidman are just so strange. Their characters languish over almost everything. Their touch lingers whenever they pick up the simplest mundane object. It's very off-putting, but it does help to elevate them above the rest of the characters to the point where you can really see a connection forming between…
