Expectations are fickle fiends. Especially for movies. It gets even harder when a remake is brought on after a successful first iteration. Oscar-winning visionary director Guillermo Del Toro made two delightfully fun Hellboy movies, starring the charming Ron Perlman. The character didn’t really need a reboot, but the world got one anyway. The new Hellboy (2019), directed by Neil Marshall and starring David Harbour, is not as terrible as everyone says.
Shazam! is the newest entry in the DC Movie Universe. After a series of bad to mediocre movies, DC realized that the biggest criticism they faced was the level of grittiness that caked the sides of their films: coated of broodiness, globbed with self-doubt, and void of smiles and lightheartedness.
If you’ve seen Deadpool 2, then you will have seen Once Upon a Deadpool. If you haven’t and are curious, read a review of the previous movie here. In essence, it’s the same story. Some scenes are edited to cater the PG-13 audience, which includes cleaner violence, and nicer language.
Our journalist David Harris continues his exploration of the both strange and wonderful cinematic realm…
I’m not ashamed to admit, but Deadpool 2 worried me. I thought the first movie hit it out of the park. It was awesome when it needed to be, funny when it counted, with enough charm to make it enjoyable.
A lot has happened in the last decade. For starters, I had way more hair, Facebook was in the news for less nefarious reasons, and I was just still living with my parents. Let’s see….What else…. Oh yes. A trenchcoat clad Samuel L. Jackson said two simple words: “Avenger’s Initiative”. Does anyone remember how they felt when they heard those two words? I do, and they were magical and promising. My young brain couldn’t imagine the effect they would have.
With great power comes great responsibility. We all heard this in one way or another, whether it was from the dozens of cartoons, the handful of movies, and thousands of comics. This phrase cannot have more meaning than with the creation of this movie. When you mix an iconic character with two powerhouse movie studios, you can get a disastrous result. Who knew that we’d end up with a wonderful Spider-Man movie?
