The following is a review of Deadpool 2 — Directed by David Leitch.
I was a big fan of Tim Miller’s Deadpool, which I thought was everything you expected it to be and more. It was an immature superhero movie that made fun of its own genre, but which still suffered from some of the same problems as the lesser films in the genre.

It’s that time of the year again, folks! The Academy Awards are just around the corner. Soon the Academy will reveal all of the nominees. However, just like last year, I am going to try to predict the nominations and, later, predict the winners based on the actual nominations. (more…)
It’s finally time for the big award shows. The first huge show of the three that I follow closely (Golden Globes, BAFTAs, Academy Awards) is the Golden Globe Awards. So, today I’ve outlined my predictions for the Golden Globe film awards. Who is going to win? Are there any surprises? Let’s see. (more…)
