Deadpool:

Summary:

Deadpool isn’t your average comic book character. He’s not a super hero. He’s not a super villain. He’s the merc with a mouth, the immortal wisecracker, and the most self-aware character in comics. After a depressing display in Wolverine: Origins, Deadpool’s made his way back to the big screen and this time he’s aiming to do it right. Does he?

 

To watch or not to watch:

Unless you don’t enjoy life, are easily offended, or are under the age of eighteen, you want to see this movie. This is one you don’t want to miss. Unless of course you hate comic based movies.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Summary:

The continuation of the legendary Star Wars series, The Force Awakens focuses on a new cast of characters trying to deal with the disappearance of a hero and a dangerous new organization devoted to conquering the galaxy. This (predominately) spoiler-free review intends to find out if the movie is a suitable successor to a franchise that has had many ups and downs over the years.

 

For a spoiler heavy discussion on the movie, follow this link to my long ranting blog post on the movie. But be warned, there is much anger in this one:

Actual link coming to a galaxy near you ASAP. In the meantime, enjoy Star Wars cuteness.

 

 

To watch or not to watch:

If you’re a Star Wars fan then this should be a simple answer. For the rest of you, it’s an exciting, non-stop, blockbuster action movie that is likely to be greatly enjoyed.
