“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.

The ghoulish seven: top scariest movies of the 2000s (part 2)

5. “Horror Amityville” (The Amityville Horror, 2005) And another bright representative of the genre in 2005 — “Horror Amityville”. We finally got to the spirits and demons. And again, a remake of the Thriller of 1979. It is not known how important “Based on real events” is to the viewer in this case, but this was in the table of contents of D. Anson’s novel of the same name.A story that destroys, like a house of cards, the typical American dream of a happy family and a big bright house. In paints painting, as a caring husband and stepfather gradually, day by day, from a normal person turns into a possessed beast. Somewhere, I think?” That’s possible. Not Kubrick, of course, but who came to the cinema in adulthood, Andrew Douglas before traded advertising photography, so the picture does not disappoint. In addition, not the last role was played by a successful casting of actors: R. Reynolds, M. George and quite a crumb Chloe Moretz. Continue reading

“Aladdin”: this movie should be called ” Jasmine»

“Aladdin” (Aladdin), seems, was the only cartoon Golden era Disney, where the main, Central character history was not Princess, and its intended-and this even reflected in the title. But in the film adaptation of 2019, everything fell into place — despite the fact that the narrative is conducted on behalf of a thief who suddenly received a lamp with an Almighty Genie, the focus is on Jasmine.

The project at the stage of rumors and discussion seemed ambiguous — to entrust the children’s story to guy Ritchie, the main popularizer of British marginal romance? But if you think about it, the characters of” Aladdin ” perfectly fit into Richie’s worldview: Aladdin himself without a penny in his pocket eats stolen apples and robingudski shares hard-earned dates with starving kids, Jafar fights for power, Jasmine proves to the world that she is not what everyone sees her, and the Genie suffers from lack of freedom and sprinkles jokes right and left, in which wise advice periodically slips.
