Not much to say this week. I saw Deadpool and enjoyed it, but be prepared for a lot of swearing and graphic scenes. If you thought Kingsmen was too much, don't even bother with this movie.
From a writers point of view, although the supposed all-is-lost moment occurred at the 3/4 point of the movie, just when it's supposed to occur, I was surprised to find it really wasn't much of a black moment. In fact, the writers went for some laughs during this sequence, so I wouldn't recommend this movie for story structure analysis. Just enjoy the humor and over the top violence.
BTW, even though each of the superheros/villains were each supposed to have their own unique powers, when it came down to the fighting, they all seemed pretty much the same--super strong and able to withstand ridiculous amounts of damage. Come on Marvel, you can do better than that!
Anyway have a great weekend and enjoy the links!
