Super Hero

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Where do you start? From every single frame looking like a comic book panel, to the astoundingly smooth animation, to the acting and writing, it’s just a great movie.

If you missed the theater run I’m sorry for you, because experiencing it like that for the first time watching was nearly perfect.

If you’re a fan of The Spider at all, I strongly would suggest watching what Spider-Verse has to offer.

Deadpool 2

I mean let's be real, you should know what you're getting into if you're watching DP2.  Seeing the first one is kinda must, as elements of some jokes might not make as much sense without the backstory.

That being said, the movie is incredibly standalone.  The story is rather self contained, and I feel like it might actually be leading up to something better that I had originally expected.  The minor issues I had with the first one really weren't a factor in this movie, it feels like they already found what direction to push and just how much to do it.

I was also a huge fan of the opening credits, which mimicked the James Bond style wonderfully.

I think you could honestly say this movie, outside of language, was less inappropriate than the original as well.  Worth catching if you're a fan of Superhero movies but just don't feel like watching another Avengers movie right now.

In honor of the new Deadpool movie being out, I'll share my original take on Deadpool from my old personal notes.

It's round about what I expected it to be.  Not being super familiar with DP as a character I didn't realize exactly what I was getting into, but it was a blast.

The sex through the holidays was kinda funny (mostly Lent), but all in all I kinda felt like a good number of jokes in that regard went a little too long or far.  I get pushing the envelope is kinda DP's thing, but still.

The story isn't as memorable as I'd like, there's a lot of scenes that don't stand out and sit in my mind as I'd prefer to have.  There's some good stuff still though, solid 8/10 I'd say.

Infinity War

#ThanosDemandsYourSilence

I want to talk about this movie, because it's one of the best things I've seen this year, and I'm absolutely in love with Black Panther, so that's saying something in and of itself.

To avoid spoilers, I'll give background instead.

Over the last few years, I've been incredibly unimpressed with the state of Marvel.  Thor 2 was a joke, Winter Soldier was average, and let's not talk about Iron Man 2 or 3.

Ragnarok, Homecoming, Ant Man, Black Panther, and Civil War (which was basically Avengers 2.5) were the only good ones coming out, and I wasn't even a huge fan of Civil War.

That's changed up with Infinity War part 1 though.  It was just so good, and they didn't back down from doing what they needed to.  It's the strongest turn Marvel has taken yet, and I can's recomend it enough.
