‘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.
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.
The Avengers, like us, have good intentions. But they aren’t really good. And we don’t really believe we are either.
Whatever your jam may be—fantasy, SF, action, horror, comedy, or melodrama—it’s guaranteed to be somewhere in this packed conglomeration.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ affords the opportunity to compare Peter’s pursuit to wield super-powers responsibly with other, older heroes’ endeavors to do the same.
So long as James Gunn keeps dishing out fantastic music and witty dialogue, his films will offer audiences something no other Marvel series can.
‘Legion’ has shown filmmakers and showrunners how to make a bad guy very, very good.
Rather than on superpowers, FX’s ‘Legion’ focuses much more on treating (and supposedly saving) a broken man dealing with his demons, figurative and otherwise.
