It’s a pre-sequel! Seriously, this movie should have been horrible, and it’s somehow pretty good! Female characters and costume design are fantastic. The rest? Maybe not as much. The two queens’ relationships as sisters. Love conquers all? Adam and Brooke give it a 7, Andy gives it a 6.5.
Ryan Reynolds tweets about Brewvies getting a fine for showing Deadpool. It’s because it’s a penis, not boobs. This Film is Not Yet Rated. The stakes and the legal case. It’s censorship.

The Boss – from director/writer Ben Falcone (also real-life husband of Melissa McCarthy) a rags to riches to rags story who ends up turning to her former assistant, Kristen Bell. Wackiness ensues, but the movie doesn’t really know what it wants to be. Why can’t they find better material for Melissa McCarthy? Strong female characters and the Bechdel test.

Like 80’s kid-centric sci-fi and also 60’s and 70’s social commentary sci-fi. This movie makes you work for it a little bit. Amazing performances by main cast. Great visual filmmaking. And thinks it’s possibly the best movie of the year so far. He gave it a 9.5when he saw it at SXSW and he’s still there. Adam is close at a 9.
