I was all ready to love Deadpool 2, but then it went and pulled a really dumb stunt in the first ten minutes that totally put me off, and for the rest of the movie I was just sort of... eh, whatever, bruh. I mean, I still enjoyed it, and it's still a fun time with some good laughs, but in terms of tone I don't really think they got it. I'm OK with it being 100% dumb all the time, but it isn't; it tries to be serious sometimes, too, and every time it did I couldn't help but think "Oh no baby what is you doing?".
But, yeah, action's good, jokes are mostly funny, lots of good stuff in there. Domino stole the show for me. I've been just a liiittle bit completely in love with Zazie Beetz since seeing her on Atlanta (did you see that one where she speaks fluent German? Oh my gaaaaaawd), and she's great in this movie. I'd honestly rather have a Domino 2 than a Deadpool 3; her powers are way more fun to watch and it's so refreshing to see a superhero who's just kind of fun and happy-go-lucky without needing to shout a meme into the camera every time they're on screen like a certain red and black fellow who may or may not be the main character of this movie.
OK here's some spoiler-y bits:
EDIT - I just realised I forgot to talk about a bunch of different stuff I watched ages ago, so lemme just run through these bad boys quickly before they leak out of my useless brain forever:
Search Party: It's a show about vapid New York millennials, one of whom (played by Maebe from Arrested Development) takes it upon herself to search for a missing person she kinda sorta knew from college. It starts off as a comedy but pretty quickly turns into a black comedy, and then the second season kind of drops the comedy to become an almost uncomfortably tense thriller. It's pretty good. I should mention that I blasted through both seasons in like three days, just leaving it on in the background and focusing in when my lizard brain detected it getting juicy, and that approach tends to smooth over any problems that might be there, so I don't know if it's amazing or anything, but I liked it.
The Night Manager: Tom Hiddleston's audition reel for James Bond, basically. He's a former hotel night manager, recruited by MI6 to infiltrate the entourage of Hugh Laurie, a famous humanitarian who secretly runs a huge evil gun-running empire supplying all manner of terrorism-enabling weaponry to bad guys. It's decent, but nothing to write home about, really, and I don't think Hiddleston has what it takes to be Bond. He's too... I don't know, reedy? Dorky? A couple of times in this series people will throw things to him, and he catches them like a huge nerd who has to concentrate super hard to catch things, not like a cool spy who can do that kind of thing effortlessly, y'know? James Bond catches things casually in one hand, not by panicking and clutching them against his chest with both hands. Try harder, Hiddleston.
Atlanta: k, I know it's passe to bring up Donald Glover being an artistic genius who can do everything at this point, but he is a really cool guy who makes good stuff. Season 1 of Atlanta is a great show about a guy struggling to manage his cousin's fledgling rap career, and then Season 2 is that... but also sometimes they'll just do a totally random episode about a single character that has nothing to do with anything else, and it's still great! It reminded me of Louis CK's show, where he started off with kind of a standard "watch Louis get dunked on by life" thing and then steadily went off the deep end into avant-garde rubbish as the seasons went on, except where Louis CK's show ended up unwatchable, Donald Glover's show just gets better. Also, Donald Glover didn't turn out to be a pervert
Happy Valley: I LOVE THIS SHOW! I saw a recommendation that likened it to Broadchurch, which is what drew me to it in the first place, but I think this might actually be even better than Broadchurch was. Happy Valley is an English cop show set in Halifax, which is oop North where people just "go pub" instead of "go to the pub", about a uniformed Sergeant in her 50s named Catherine Cawood who is the most put-upon character I've ever seen. She's burdened with raising the nightmare son of her daughter who was raped and hanged herself, while simultaneously trying to rescue a local girl who's been kidnapped by none other than the recently-paroled animal who raped her daughter and fathered said nightmare son. She's the kind of person who unconsciously makes everyone else's problems her own, trying to help wherever she can, and she's just a fantastically-written character; heavily-flawed (heavily), but also fiercely clever, dogged, and played by an absolutely amazing actress named Sarah Lancashire. I watched the whole two seasons of the show with my Mum, who's the most voracious consumer of BBC cop dramas you'll ever meet, and we couldn't get enough of this thing. It's the kind of show that's just so intense that you almost regret even starting it, because you know you aren't going to be able to think about anything else until it's done. There are two six-episode seasons at the moment, and they're excellent, and hopefully there'll be a third at some point in the future. Ooh it's good.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Eeeeeeh... I can see why Frances McDormand got the Oscar for this movie, since she's fantastic in it, but it's a really long, meandering movie that just sort of ends after a while and leaves you thinking... OK, I guess? It's fine, I suppose. It's the kind of thing you enjoy while you're watching it because the performances are good, but at the back of your mind you're thinking "OK, but what's next?", and then you get to the end and you find out that that's all there was.
The Handmaid's Tale: This show is really good, but it's terribly depressing and I always feel like I want to stop watching it because I can't take it. The last episode I watched had Peggie from Mad Men just about to escape her nightmare life of being raped until she can pop out a baby for her assigned governor of the barbaric religious theocracy that was once known as America by flying over the border in a light plane, until the powers that be basically pull her back to Earth by the plane's tail fin, and I haven't seen an episode since because I just can't take it.
