@theamazingspidey: Really good to hear from you after so long! Nice list, though, unfortunately I haven't even seen half of what's on your list.

I'm glad you liked The Suicide Squad. That was probably my favourite comic book film of the year. Loved what James did and I hope he jumps on a sequel. My favourite scene was by far the team walk in the final act (Hey by Pixies).

As for No Way Home, unfortunately I share an unpopular opinion, and didn't like it as much as I wanted to. It was a good film, but I found it lacking in some areas, or I felt things could have been done better at points.

Regardless, I enjoyed your blog. Hope to see you more.

I actually thought you would have disliked this one. Personally, I never like zombie movies because they're usually braindead and lack a provoking story, but Army of the Dead was pretty good.

What did you think of A Quiet Place Part 2? Because personally, I found it well acted especially for both kid actors: Noah Jupe in particular nearly brought a tear to my eye.

Hey brother, great to see you come back for the review! I feel like any major film that comes out will be incentive for you to come back and express your creative mind.

I enjoyed the read. Its disappointing to hear that you didn't like the film as much as I expected. I thought the 4 hours were utilized in its most optimal in this film. Breaking the film into "parts" definitely relieved my mindset going into this film. That said, each part was well-paced and fleshed out what it wanted to.

I'm not sure I understand your paragraph on "necessity" though, primarily this paragraph that I'll break up:

There are also a couple of stuff added which made the movie worse, generally coming off as cheap fan service. One of the most prominent examples of this is the presence of Darkseid, which was useless and felt like a set-up for future movies.

Considering the whole villain arc was about Darkseid and how Steppenwolf is a pawn in a greater plan, I fail to see how it was pointless to have a Darkseid appearance. It was to set up another Justice League because that was Snyder's original intention.

As revealed in the marketing, Jared Leto reprises his role as Joker in one scene. Although it is a delightful scene and a drastic improvement from Suicide Squad's Joker design and writing-wise, the scene came across as completely unnecessary and self-indulgent.

Why unnecessary? They found themselves in a different future where Darkseid won and Superman turned evil. I don't find any scene that tries setting up a future film to be unnecessary.

I was confused for the entire 34 minutes of viewing this "film". At least I had the luxury of being able to turn it off. I agree with your score wholeheartedly. Nothing in the opening minutes captivated me.

Nothing about the concept was remotely comprehendible. I mean, there was one scene where the scientist explained inverted radiation and thats it.. the protagonist was like "aight, time to go on a mission and use these objects like I have for the passed 20 years".

I finally got around to seeing this.

Wow. Just as good as his previous film Get Out. I'm in love with this director.

Haven't been on in a while, and as soon as I saw your avi changed to the picture from the film, I had a feeling you must've liked it.

I can't wait to see this movie.

Pretty much my thoughts, if you put a wordsmith in my head.

Fantastic review.

I really liked Orm. He's one of the better villains seen in recent times, imo.

As you know, I managed to see the movie last night. Never got a chance to express my thoughts properly. I agree with some of the stuff you said here. Domino and Cable are fantastic additions to the line-up. However I was more impressed with their interactions with one another. Deadpool and Domino have this joke-banter that best friends typically have, and I enjoy Cable being the serious one amongst the group.

In terms of humour, it definitely did have funny moments. I really enjoyed Julian Dennison's character the most when it came to laughs. However, I'm pretty certain the crowd I was with ruined my experience. They laughed as much as a laugh track in a sitcom, at every minor reference or gesture made by Deadpool. If I tried to do a "Try Not to Laugh" challenge, I bet I could pass it easy. But I didn't. I was there for enjoyment.

I still prefer Deadpool over the sequel.

As for the post-credit. I didn't really understand it.

Mainly the part where he went back in time and saved Vanessa essentially turning the whole film moot.

Damn you didn't like it at all.
