 Deadpool 2 (2018) by David Leitch from IMDb
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.

Over-hyped is my verdict. The premise of the story seemed excellent but I felt the film went down the path of pandering to mass stardom and also political ambitions. It could’ve been a wonderful outing for Vijay if he had stayed playing the role of a ruthless corporate CEO. Till about a quarter of the movie, it was well executed. Post the legal victory scene, it went downhill for me: predictable song and action sequences and an utter under-utilization of a heroine.

With a wider range of action movies to spoof from, this was much much better than the first part. I now hope there is a third part in the near future.

 Thamizh Padam 2 (2018) from IMDb
Directed by C.S. Amudhan. With Iswarya Menon, Shiva, Jiiva, Manobala. A stringent cop tries all the possible ways to nab a dreaded don who poses a big threat to the society.

To take something as funny as a clown 🀑 and make it something to scare the shit out of you is a special talent.

I just told Max a two-minute version of it and I’m hoping it doesn’t scare him…

The last adaptation of a King novel that I had watched (The Dark Tower) was a disappointment.

A decade back, I had read the book and this is what I felt at that time…

Thankfully I never read this when I was a child. A nightmare-inducing tale of growing up in a small town with a resident monster.

To people who had watched Stranger Things first, several scenes would seem familiar. Why they even share an actor!!! But the novel came out first and had inspired Stranger Things television series. Not the other way around.

I’m eager to return to Derry in Chapter 2…
