Deadpool was done right. Like straight from the comics done right, nicely done guys. It’s ridiculously funny throughout with a great cast and characters to compliment the Merc with a mouth. The dialogue was equal parts hilarious, filled with pop culture and filthy, just how I like it. Even the action and visuals were pretty great considering the budget; they really worked within their means and it paid off.

Interesting weekend and one of my closest predictions to date, must be getting good. However Pacific Rim dropped more than 57% so expect a ridiculous hissy fit, am talking Dredd level fit. Grown Ups 2 $20M!!! Dafuq! But the four releases didn’t do to great considering the box office dropped compared to last year, sadly this could become more frequent if studios keep pushing more releases on the same weekend. I mean really four brand new films in one weekend which also has to compete with last weekend’s releases. Look on for my analysis and go out to see some films. Please go see Pacific Rim! PLEASE!!!
Guess what am back to…PREDICTIONS!!! But first I have to issue my deep disappointment of Pacific Rims box office last weekend. The US has let me down and hopefully the international markets can save this wonderful film. Also if you haven’t seen it yet please go out this weekend so you don’t have to witness another of my Dredd breakdowns! Grown Ups 2 are F*CKING kidding me! Onto less ranting topics let’s talk about the FOUR new wide releases this weekend. We have Turbo the animated racing film about snails, The Conjuring a new horror film with excellent reviews, R.I.P.D. a comic book adaptation of what is essential MIB with ghosts and lastly Red 2 the sequel to a successful action film about not so retired CIA agents. Look on for my analysis and go out to see some films. Please go see Pacific Rim! PLEASE!!!
The Croods wasn’t the best animated kid’s film but it had plenty of humour and impressive visuals to keep it in the green (my rating system). The voice acting was solid from its cast and the story whilst nothing new was enough to keep the viewer (me) entertained for 90 minutes. I can see kids really liking it with its slap stick humour and brightly coloured environment. Like with all Kids films it has an overall message which in this is family and change can be good, relatively simple but it works. Still waiting for How To Train Your Dragon 2 though, come on DreamWorks get your affairs in order.

Its early family guy which means it very funny but doesn’t always gel, that’s fine in a TV show but can be strange in a full length film. Nevertheless it’s really funny and that’s all a comedy film needs to be so it’s winning. This is so Seth MacFarlane that it’s hard to escape the family guy comparisons. Although it does have some unique and unseen funny parts which I am glad of because I was worried about the trailer being all of its comedy.
