    Hm... this is a hard one.

    I get really keen and passionate about Star Wars lore, including the expanded universe, despite how silly it can be. With my friends, they all like Star Wars, but they look at me weirdly if I explain things about the characters, universe etc. that they don't know about. I'm basically "that guy" when it comes to Star Wars.

    so I've been on a movie rampage this week. The list seen:

    Sicario
    The Revenant
    The Hateful Eight
    Brooklyn
    Star Wars TFA

    They're all really solid and worth watching. In terms of my favorite to least favorite I think it would have to go: Brooklyn, The Hateful Eight, Sicario, The Revenant, Star Wars. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the last 2, I just thought the others were better and I enjoyed them more.

    Sicario was a crazy ride.

    In The Heart of the Sea

    A "stranded" movie under the premise of how Herman Melville conceived the story of "Moby Dick," complete with all the typical tropes you'd expect. Suffering from rushed action sequences and mediocre execution, there is very little interest to be found in this movie, even if you like the genre.

    Fant4stic. It was so bad. But what was sad is that it goes from this nicely shot, well stated twenty minutes to a meandering forty minutes where no shot stays on scree for more than four seconds. You can literally see them cobbling a new story together with the broken pieces of a movie.

    As bad as it is. I'm grateful cuz Trank was a front runner to take on a Star Wars movie.

    Fantastic 4 makes my heart hurt. It's not completely bad, especially if you can just turn off your brain and watch a movie, like I'm wont to do, but it definitely has more flaws than perks.

    My brother and I watched Hot Fuzz for probably the hundredth time tonight. Might be the most underrated of the Cornetto trilogy (unrightfulliy so), but still a movie I'd put in my top ten.

    A few weeks ago, my partner and I randomly watched The Breakfast Club on TV while having dinner. It's the first time I've seen it, I actually enjoyed it.

    My partner also showed me Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire, which was good but it did feel a bit rushed though.

    We're gonna go see Deadpool this weekend. Super excited.

    Yup, that's the Cornetto Trilogy right there.

    I haven't seen At World's End, but I love Hot Fuzz.

    A mate of mine gave me shit for enjoying The Breakfast Club at judo training one night.

    So I sang "Don't you forget about me" to him while I strangled him in ground work.

    Saw Deadpool last night with my partner. We both really liked it. Incredibly funny, heaps of cool, over the top action, it's probably the best comic adaptation of a film I've ever seen.

    Saw Deadpool.

    It's alright. I never need to see it ever again, but I don't regret seeing it.

    Longo didn't really like it. So that means I will probably love it! Woooooo!

    Your review of deadpool is what I would say of the new Star Wars.

    Ditto, but as a person who doesn't know much of Deadpool, I enjoyed the film.

    I've read a lot of his comics over the last two years and they captured what I thought was a Deadpool movie. It was over the top and fast paced and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of fun one liners to keep saying down the line. But as with any referential humor movie it stands on others material more than its own.

    That being said, the speech from Colossus is amazing. And the scene played out wonderfully.

    I've never read any stand alone Deadpool comics, to be honest. The Deadpool related comics I've read are usually the team up ones, like Deadpool and Spider-Man, Deadpool and Cable... I also played video games that involved Deadpool, like X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse (although he's a boss fight near the end, he's unlockable) as well as Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

    Deadpool had me laughing harder than I have in a long while. Girlfriend really liked the movie as well.
