I just attempted to watch the last 30 minutes of Deadpool 2. How was this film ever allowed to be released? I cannot believe people paid money to sit through this garbage :!: Ryan Reynolds rates as one of the all-time worst actors ever :!: The storyline is abysmal as well. Unreal that this film exists. :down: :down: :down:

It’s Deadpool, never was the wholesome marvel family fun most of their other series were. First clue is it doesn’t have something like incredible or amazing in the title, this character was created long after Stan Lee’s run. (It also started out as a ripoff of DC Batman’s death stroke)

Last half hour has the killing spree, teenage negasonic’s forbidden love, and juggernaut and colossus facing off with background music of a choir singing obscenities. Depending on which version the end credits might have Deadpool going back in time to kill baby hitler.

One thing I’ve got to mention is the opening credits rip off the recent bond movies and does it better, in both versions; theatrical and super duper unrated cut.
Also the theme song by Celine Dion is far better than what eon has offered recently including Adele. The song actually has a lot of heart and meaning to the story.
IMHO Wade and Vanessa’s reunion set to the acoustic version of Take On Me was brilliant and oddly a tribute to the original music video.

Fascinating. Actually we done and researched.

Hollywood and businesses are in bed with communist China, eon alters bond movies according to the Chinese’s government censors will. Disney and others do the same, Disney picking stars acceptable to the Chinese government.
To me it’s surprising these companies fold so easily, they get maybe 25% of the BO if China feels like giving it to the studios, so the huge numbers that China inflated the world wide bo reflects are never realized by the studios,

of course it’s true for most of the world most governments around the world keep a decent percentage in tax revenue and theater owners getting the rest, studios receiving 40-50% of the gross when all is said and done. But the studios don’t sell out their culture or liberties to get the bo from rest of the world like they do China.

These pro-democracy protesters are in the right, morally. To bonus is mulan is weak and able to be made an example of just from how bad the movie market is and Disney doing direct to home video for much of the world. These pro democracy groups can make decent propaganda to help their cause from this boycott. Which I usually don’t believe in, and only works in this case because China over played their hand and mulan is already weakened. Even if China give mulan a billion dollars as long as the rest of the world is low bo they can say the Chinese gov falsely inflated the bo (which they do all the time) . The Pro democracy protesters pretty much picked the movie that was going to fail anyway without anyone doing anything to make a boycott around.

Well, it's not really comparable, but there is a long history of movies like Top Gun making changes to the script in order to secure the co-operation of the Pentagon. At the end of the day, Hollywood will whore themselves out to anyone who they think will help them bring in more $$$.

True. But they also needed real footage of those planes doing those maneuvers and not stock footage from the Korean war. Still a good point.

Hollywood like to see them selves as progressive that change the social narrative. The truth I think is they are a group of entitled rich who make decision often holding back progress. Hollywood decided you can’t have a Blackman or woman star in action movies and make money or be popular, I think that was norm they decided on from outdated stereotypes generations old.

Still I see the openly capitulating to the Chinese communist as more sinister and dangerous than the pandering in the past.

Took me quite by surprise really, just yesterday I watched her in Game of Thrones.
Apparently she had a heart surgery in 2017.

Supervisor Jim Desmond---"San Diego has been backed into a corner. The State has given us impossible guidelines, which will keep businesses closed or limited for many more months! Tomorrow, I will be asking for businesses to open up in San Diego County and NOT to enforce the state rules."---where is MP? Get her in here. This is your town. Have you had enough of your Governor?

Dunno if this is getting any coverage across the pond, but apparently, today is the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower setting sail.

Wow, I know they story but it hits home this is bad time to try to circumnavigate the globe, especially going to new frontier in the winter where nothing is ready to receive people.
