So, cool story, I saw a Deadpool double feature on Thursday. Which was only
five six days ago, which means I guess I’m doing better than usual? Sigh.
Anyway, I still like the first movie. I did not laugh as hard, because familiarity, but I still laughed. Later, they showed Deadpool 2, which I also liked. The short version is, it’s the same movie again. Yes, the plot is different, but it’s still Ryan Reynolds mugging for the audience and choosing ridiculous, hyperviolent solutions to problems whenever possible while Colossus looks on disapprovingly.
Did I like it unreservedly? Nah, it had some problems. But even though the final act was too busy and muddled, there was a good story in there with at least one good character arc, and also I am really very much a fan of one of the new characters. So, muddled final act, problematic plot devices and all, I still dig this movie, and I’m pretty sure I look forward to a third one. But the first one is damn near perfect, and this was very much not. Oh well! It’s still funny.
 Can he grow and learn? I mean, maybe. Maybe not though.
 Another thing I hate about taking so long to review movies, aside from the guilt factor, is that societal reaction / consensus creeps into my opinions by now, and I don’t like it one bit.
 The fan service got in the way of the main plot, very distractingly. (And I say this as someone who was extremely pleased by the fan service!)
