    Sounds like another studio cash-in. I’ll pass thanks

  2. I was wondering if you had reviewed this or not. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it. I absolutely loved it and thought it was hilarious. But everybody is different.
    Good post though! I always enjoy reading your reviews.

    For several years, I lived in a town, which didn’t have a movie theater. It was more about performance theater… So, I would have to travel to a different city to go and see a movie. I was also lucky to have a wide network of friends, who would share their movie collections. I stopped going to the movies. It wasn’t really an experience, either.

    However, recently, I realized I’ve missed going to the movies. So every now and then, I wrestle with myself, weighing the pros and cons. When I go, I realize that the popcorn I once liked is too salty, that the screening rooms are too cold for a person dressed for 90 degree weather, and that the movies are … mostly meh, and I could have waited to see it in the comfort of my own home. With my own snacks, with my AC set for my liking. With the ability to pause it whenever I want. With the lack of people commenting the movie out loud, txting (mobile light), etc.

    But, I believe a cinema itch to be coming this weekend. And this movie has been on my radar as having the least potential to disappoint my expectations and to waste my time. We shall see if I end up scratching that itch, and if so, will it put me off for a while.

    (Sorry for mostly off-topic, but I felt like sharing.)

  4. I will admit that the trailers made this movie look like a Nick Fury/ Deadpool buddy cop film and I was fairly excited for that, being an avid comic fan. Your reviews tend to be spot on though, and for that I might just wait until it comes out on Blu-Ray and rent it. Thanks for saving me some money on a movie ticket! hahaha

      Lol I’m glad I could help you out! I had similar thoughts to you and was hoping for the best. Clearly, that was not the case.

    Hmm, that’s a real shame. I had been looking forward to this one, but so far most reviews haven’t been too positive 😔 Will still check it out I guess, but am once again lowering my expectations for this one. Great post though 😀

      Thanks for your thoughts! I’d probably wait until HBO or streaming to see it. Like you, I had high hopes for this one considering the talent involved, but there’s really nothing new or inventive that warrants a trip to the theaters.
