‘Deadpool 2’ has more action, laughs, and story than the first. It also tosses in enough heart to sweeten things up, without getting too sickening.
Each of DC’s major characters is essentially a sun at the center of their own solar system. Their gravity is so strong they maintain multiple planets all on their own.
Thanos has a similar mindset to leftists of the past century or so. He believes anything can be justified if it forwards his well-intentioned agenda.
That the film paints Malthusian calculus in such an unflattering light just as a wave of editorials are confessing the unrealized horrors of population panic is one heck of a coincidence.
