“Deadpool 2”: more action, more characters and more drama

Than in its time shot the first “Deadpool”? Graphic cruelty, jokes on the verge of not that decency, but just common sense, an attempt to turn upside down typical for superhero films cliches and, importantly, the ability to cram it all into a low-budget shell without losing enthusiasm. Released this week, “Deadpool 2” (Deadpool 2) spent more money and slightly moved away from the original scheme.

There is no, with idiotic jokes in sequel full order, about this worry not worth. As soon as the character of Ryan Reynolds (and someone says that Reynolds and Deadpool merged into one, much like Robert Downey Jr. and Iron man) opens his mouth, you know-soon there will be some gag, ridiculing the modern film industry, a sarcastic reference to pop culture or simply linguistic or even political pun.

From the bird to make an elephant and inflate to the size of the globe

“You can’t put a loaded gun on the stage if no one means to shoot it. Can’t promise anything.”/A. P. Chekhov.

A teenage girl who requires everyone to call herself”Lady bird” among other things is in her senior year. The school is Catholic with priests and nuns. They have problems, children are naughty, the RCC is in crisis, they are too kind, and one son killed himself with heroin. Her father is depressed, old and out of work. Mother works as a nurse for seven is afraid of poverty and generally hopeless because she grew up in an alcoholic family. The girlfriend of the heroine suffers from excess weight and therefore she has no boyfriend. Lady bird’s friend is gay and afraid to come out.
She didn’t mean much to the other guy. Stepbrother graduated from College but could only get a job in a cafe. Still have “like” the sister, who sheltered and hid from the harsh natural parents. In America, the terrorist attacks of 2001 died down, and this is also not a holiday. Continue reading

“Bohemian Rhapsody”: the birth and fall of a legend

I can’t assess the impact of Queen on the world — I was born after Freddie mercury died, and I didn’t see Live Aid or the Barcelona Olympics or anything else. But at the same time their songs have been with me since childhood, imperceptibly filled the information space, and the existence of extraordinary Britons who recorded “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Bohemian Rhapsody), as if everyone knew.

The cult of the group, as I think, just lies not in the number of fans, but in its fame. You can not know the facts of the biography of musicians, their favorite colors and the number of spouses, not to have in the brain the entire discography by release date, but to know that these people came together and made such and such a track — and this is in my understanding of fame.
