Ohhh yeah! This week’s Blu-ray Tuesday is for a movie I’ve been eagerly awaiting since I saw it in theaters! This week’s Blu-ray Tuesday is for DP 2! No, not Double Penetration 2 (though the main character may wish it was). I’m talking about the ferocious, foul mouthed, fourth wall breaker and his hot sequel, “Deadpool 2”!
First off, I will never ever ever ever forever never ever get tired of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. He IS that character. He’s right up there with RDJ as Iron Man and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. I know, bold statement, but can you really argue with me on this? Probably not. Add in that now we have Josh Mother Fuckin Brolin joining the franchise as Cable (he also played Thanos in “Infinity War””, which I discussed last week and you can check out here) and you’ve got a recipe for some great give and take between two very contrasting characters. Last but not least, we can’t forget the dare I say “controversially” cast Zazie Beetz as Domino. SHE. KILLS. IT. Let’s not forget that returning for the sequel are fan favorites Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Dopinder, and Blind Al.
Now, I was insanely worried that with this being a sequel and granted a larger budget and cast, it would not live up to the original. I was worried it would use too much CGI (lookin at you DC) or try to fit too much into one story (i.e. the letdown that was Spiderman 3). Holy shit biscuits, was I proven wrong! This movie is just as good as the original (which I love so dearly) and some may even argue that it’s better! Personally, I am on the fence regarding that, but that doesn’t mean I don’t absolutely love this film. I’ll admit a few of the jokes fell a little flat or went on a little too long, but there are so many that hit, it doesn’t affect the film overall. If you love vulgarity and crudeness, Deadpool is just right for you. If you don’t…grow a fucking pair.
The fight scenes in this movie are incredible and PLEASE pay attention to the score playing in the background because there are some fantastically written musical pieces throughout. There are so many things I want to talk about in this movie, but the point of this post is to get you to go and watch the damn thing, so I won’t give away any spoilers. I’m so excited about this film and I’m already looking forward to the third. I’m absolutely scooping this up after work as should you, and to quote the man himself…..“I’m touching myself tonight”.
