Deadpool 2: 9.5/10

Excellent sequel and builds on the first one in every way. They took all the things we loved in the first one and built on it; the intro credits are genius. I can't say too much without spoiling it atm but the balance was excellent and I have given it 9.5 for creative genius. This isn't just a comedy masked as a super hero film, it has a genuine serious super hero movie story line as all the other Marvel movies do but this one is different because they have woven the humour into it. There are many many jokes and you probably won't laugh at all of them because they appeal to different people but the ones you do find funny you'll laugh your ass off at. The best ones are when he takes the piss out of the other Marvel characters and movies.

As an fyi, there are two separate post credit scenes which are in quick succession after the initial credits when the film finishes. Unlike other Marvel movies there is no final scene right at the end of the main black credits so you don't need to waste your time waiting for it unless you want to hear the choir sing the "holy shit balls" song as part of the soundtrack.

Deadpool 2 : 7/10

Yeah, so it was ok, but not as good as the first one, IMO.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Deadpool 2 8/10 As above really, did like the first more but this is more than watchable, plenty of laughs, the Thanos reference you just couldn't not do and so on. However it does seemingly have a better drawn out story than the first.

Solo: A Star Wars Story 5/10

I was going to give it 4/10 but the finale gave it the extra point. Up and till the finale it felt like a very b-grade scifi action with no substance which would keep 8 year olds happy with the all the explosions and special effects. Very little resembled the look and feel of Star Wars and is what Fantastic Beasts is to Harry Potter. Quality wise I would say it is on par with White House down and up and till the finale I wasn't even going to say it is worth watching but it ends up being passable. The finale upgraded it to an average Sunday afternoon film and I liked how it tied it into the prime story line. There aren't any wow moments and even the soundtrack is very monotonous for the first half of the film and just orchestral noise. It gets better in the second half when they start using some of the old themes. I have heard people were blown away by Lando's performance and that he made the film but I honestly didn't think it is was anything special. The only positive for me in the whole film is Kahleesi, she was excellent and I didn't recognise her to start off with. The problem I have got though is with the continuity and somebody is going to have to explain this for me and probably a lot of other people as well because I am not into my Star Wars history and expanded universe:

Spoiler: 
At the beginning of the film when Solo is trying to escape the city/planet he is on you see him bribe his way through a checkpoint which is run by the empire ande guarded by stormtroopers. At this point I am unsure what the time period/year is so I assumed the Empire was established and setup but when we flash forward 3 years and Solo is in the Empire you have got ground forces on a planet in the middle of a massive battle and they are all normal people like Solo and not stormtroopers. This confused me but at the end of the film you see Darth Maul (which they have to make painfully obvious for you) which means it is pre-Episode I which means it is pre-Attack of the Clones so that explains the lack of the clone army and stormtroopers in the battle at the beginning of the film. If that is the case though then why are there stormtroopers and the Empire at the checkpoint at the beginning of the film because I didn't think any of that existed back then?

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I expected a low to average rating from you General. You were expecting it to be terrible so thanks for your opinion.

In reference to the time period it is meant to be somewhere between Sith and ANH.
Spoiler: 
The Rebels series made it clear the Maul survived(to a degree) also if there are stormtroopers rather than clones it would need to be.

I'm seeing it today but have no expectations of what to expect.

Also I think it's a 12a rating so note really for the kids.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

It does sound like Ron Howard managed to salvage a decent enough film from the production issues they were having.

Solo - 8/10

Very enjoyable and a fun heist movie. Definitely feels like a Star Wars movie and lots of nods and references included. Some from Rebels and Clone Wars as well as some things I've not heard of in a while.

Richie Cunningham saves the day

Solo was awesome, a bit long maybe, but made up for the The Last Jedi

8/10

Solo - 7/10. Pretty impressive considering the problems they had in production. Decent film, glad I saw it. I agree it was a bit too long though
