Wow, this just popped out of nowhere. Ryan Reynolds just shared on social media that Deadpool 3 is officially in the works and guess who’s joining him?! Hugh Jackman, baby!
Yep, you heard correctly. Hugh Jackman is back to reprise his role as Wolverine and I couldn’t be happier. A few years ago this would’ve felt strange considering his epic swan song in the literal Oscar-winning movie Logan back in 2017 but now that we have the multiverse the idea of Deadpool and Wolverine starring in a movie together just sounds right.
Well, that was a fun surprise on a seemingly quiet Tuesday.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
*sigh* I was really excited to see this movie. I mean, really excited. Ever since it came out I had heard so many rave reviews about this film that I’ve been waiting for the chance to see what all the hype was about. Well, I just watched it and I have thoughts…`
I have the perfect way to describe this film. Imagine the wacky plots of Regular Show mixed with the multiverse/crude humor of Rick and Morty paired with the heartwarming message of a Disney film. That is Everything Everywhere All at Once.
It’s a story about a woman who must save the multiverse from a great evil. To explain more would be to start delving into spoilers so I will not do that. What I will say is that the film is weird and its humor, while at times legitimately funny, wasn’t my style. I’m one of those people who isn’t a fan of Rick and Morty so you may understand why I wasn’t a fan of this movie.
13 years ago when Avatar entered the theaters and shocked the world with its jaw-dropping CGI-created world and characters I was 12 years old. I remember watching the film at home and being dazzled by how pretty the movie was but overall, I wasn’t impressed. I didn’t see the film again until about a decade later when it was playing on television and I decided to revisit it.
As a movie buff, I saw the movie with different eyes. I realized how impeccable the screenplay was, I absorbed the beauty of the film and its characters in a way I never had, and I was impressed by the movie. But I still wasn’t certain if people would get hyped for its sequel after such a long wait.
I’ve recently revisited the film a couple of times and with every viewing the movie seems to get a little better…and then I watched it in IMAX 3D yesterday.
I haven’t done one of these actor-specific movie ranking posts in a while but after delving deep into Hindi movies for the last couple of months it didn’t take long before I saw an SRK film. And once I started, I couldn’t stop.
I now understand why Shah Rukh Khan, a man I knew vaguely before beginning this adventure, is one of the most famous actors in the world. Not only are his looks and charm undeniably entrancing, which makes his wealth of romantic movies understandable, but his movies are honestly some of the most enjoyable I’ve ever seen. Each story is different from the last and each of his performances, no matter how similar, is uniquely nuanced and memorable. I’ve watched a lot of his movies in the past several weeks and while there were of course some I liked more than others I knew I had to share my movie ranking. Enjoy!
19. Main Hoon Na (I’m Always Here)
Synopsis: An army major goes undercover as a college student. His mission is both professional and personal: to protect his general’s daughter from a radical militant, and to find his estranged half-brother.
I like most, if not all, of Shah Rukh Khan’s movies but this was the only film I’ve seen of his that I couldn’t finish. The storyline was interesting enough.
And while the movie could’ve been likable it just wasn’t. Shah Rukh Khan was the only good thing about it and even he couldn’t save this movie for me.
When I watched Top Gun: Maverick in IMAX on Memorial Day a few months ago, I knew I had just seen an instant classic. The film was not only exhilarating with its incredibly made action scenes featuring the actors in real cockpits of real planes having to perform all of these mindblowing stunts but it was a very well-written sequel to the 80s’ classic Top Gun.
It was one of the most memorable movie theater experiences I’ve ever had, with the entire audience not only engaged but equally enthralled in a movie I don’t think anyone was expecting to be that good. When I walked out of that theater beaming with joy I knew that I didn’t want to see it again in theaters (even though I could’ve several times) but I was sure I would watch it again as soon as it was available digitally. Sure enough, now that its digital release is out, I watched it with all of the 4K capabilities that were available to me, and boy did I have a great time.
Last night I watched Sylvester Stallone’s newest film, Samaritan, with my family and I have to admit, I enjoyed it. I was ready to not like this movie but as the story continued I found myself invested in the characters and the drama that was unfolding.
The worst thing about this movie was the film’s villain who looked like a near carbon copy of the vampire David from The Lost Boys. His presence in the film was really distracting because of how bad the script was surrounding the antagonist and the actor who portrayed him so terribly.
All in all, Samaritan isn’t a brilliant film but it is an enjoyable matinee movie that I think is worth watching for roughly two hours. And the plot twist in this film was legitimately gasp-inducing.
I’m giving it 87 out of 100 and 3.5 out of 5 stars.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.
