I think the real issue here is that Sansa Stark has essentially been Dark Phoenix for the last four seasons of GOT, so this feels more like a post-series TV movie than anything.

Dragons showing up would make the X-Men movies ten times better.

They keep trying to sell me this movie, and every time I'm like:

I want the X-Men saga to be told entirely through Deadpool's POV from now on.

Even I don't care about the X-Men movies at this point. Talk about beating a dead horse.

I'll see it for Sansa Stark! (Like everyone else...)

Sansa Stark in a remake of X3: The Last Stand. I mean, I'm a completionist so I'll see it. That said, after Days of Future Past and Logan, they should have just done a full page-one reboot... or given it back to Marvel to be Avengers-ized.

The problem is I only go to the movies once every four months.

I only go once a year!

Deadpool 2 is corporatist propaganda pandering to an audience that thinks they're watching something subversive when they're just being spoon-fed an infantile R-rated reinforcement of the fascist values of superhero movies. While I get that 20th Century Fox and Marvel are not going to completely give the middle finger to the genre and it's audience, the first movie had shades of "Hey comic book geeks, you know these movies are *kind of* duping you, right?" The sequel is trying to make geeks feel like they're in on some private joke, while desperately trying to hide that fact that now *everybody* is in on the joke.

Look, I get it. You can't go to Marvel and say, "Hey, I want to make a movie that basically tells the audience how foolish they are for letting you guys shovel the the same shit into their mouths over and over." That said, if you're selling subversive, be subversive. Don't sell me punk rock then toe the company line while wearing designer ripped jeans. ("Never Mind the Bollocks" indeed.)

The Krassnerian in me is disappointed and borderline offended. Somehow I thought now that it made money and the greed mongers trusted the format that Deadpool 2 would be riskier than what came before and it was *much* safer. I was naive to think it would be the opposite.

It's a mediocre casually entertaining superhero movie, but after the first one, didn't we all think we might get something more?

If you're looking for positives: The superhero stuff is pretty good. The chick playing Domino is energized, hot, and funny. The emotional stakes were surprisingly high. (Which also makes the movie tonally uneven.) And there are two very funny satirical sequences, only one of which is *truly* subversive to the genre. But mostly, it's just the same old superhero shit with a lot of dick jokes.

RC says "meh."

First real Deadpool 2 trailer. I'll see it, but the cynic in me doubts they'll capture lightning in a bottle twice. (Though the gun bit with the blind lady made me laugh out loud.)

We have Deadpool shit in eight different threads because Superhero movies have eaten our souls.

That said, this made me laugh.
