Deadpool 2 (2018)

Movie

There is a pressure on sequels that can never be present during the first instalment of a franchise. The pressure to be equal or better than the first movie. The pressure to live up to the expectations based on the success of the first movie. Deadpool 2 had to follow up Deadpool, be better and funnier, and that is a lot of pressure. Even for a comic book character, who is able to break the 4th wall and survive pretty…

Deadpool (2016)

Movie

Only Deadpool could break a fourth wall inside of a fourth wall to achieve the ultimate level of awesomeness by breaking sixteen walls. And though it makes no sense, it doesn’t really matter, because I’m still sixteen levels of thrilled about Deadpool and the fact that its first installment won’t be the last.…

The Voices (2014)

Movie

Without a doubt there are some minor spoilers in sight. There is probably a lot to tell about The Voices but at the moment it feels like most of it is indescribable.

Paper Man (2009)

Movie

I have no idea how I missed this movie in 2009, it had all the right elements to be on my watching list during that year but maybe it didn’t end up on my screen because I wasn’t blogging at that time… On the other hand, I’m glad I didn’t see it in 2009 because I might have not liked the things I enthusiastically enjoyed while watching Paper Man the other day as much as I would have when I…

# 218 – The Change-Up

Movie

Keeping things on the fun side (before I do a short summary of this years Emmy Awards) I’m continuing with The Change-Up which I saw a couple of weeks ago. While I have the up-most respect for Jason Bateman (I just like him so much) I find Ryan Reynolds a bit annoying. I think it’s because I have seen him so much and he always seems to play the same characters. But I’m not gonna get into my subjective opinions…

# 7 – Buried

Actor/Actress

So I watched the newest exclusive trailer on iTunes Trailers and I have to admit, it got my attention. I vaguely remember that Ryan has already done a horror movie, The Amityville Horror in 2005, but honestly, I didn’t watch it. Not that I don’t like Ryan, I just don’t like horror movies but Buried might be the one to change my mind. I’m not familiar with either the director Rodrigo Cortés nor writer Chris Sparling so obviously I turned…
