Movie Review (2/5): “Once Upon a Deadpool” is a gimmick in every sense of the word. Those who have already seen the sequel, #Deadpool2
should realize this is simply a neutered version. In an attempt to test a PG-13 #Deadpool
, Fox should seek to test the waters elsewhere. The edits made to the film are not as “kid friendly” as many would expect. Most of the violence is only cut down in gore and a lot of the sexual humor is left intact which makes it feel a bit awkward for young audiences going with their parents. The added material with #FredSavage
feels thrown together and a stunt to deem this as a “Holiday” flick. True Deadpool fans may feel a slight urge to see this added 20 minutes but it isn’t worth the price of admission. Young teens may be excited that they can finally “legally” see Deadpool in a “clean” movie, but it will do very little for anyone else. #Film #Movie #MovieReview #MovieReviews #Deadpool2 #Superhero #PG13 #Marvel #StanLee #Holiday #Christmas #MovieNews #InstaFollow #WMKMovieReviews
Had a pretty damn cool triple feature today with good friends!
1st Movie was #onceuponadeadpool
which was another great version of Deadpool 2 to enjoy with some hilarious back and forths between Fred Savage and Deadpool. Seriously, I could watch those scenes for hours!
2nd Movie: #spidermanintothespiderverse
was freakin PHENOMENAL!!! The storytelling was next level in its MAGNIFICENT animation, direction, editing, sound, everything! It reminded me why I go to movies to be entertained by the fiery creative passion made by everyone in the making of this film!
3rd film: #aquamanmovie
was an incredible new corner of the DC Universe to explore! The fantasy elements were all exciting and an absolute joy to watch from beginning to end! Pitch perfect cast and a good vs evil story that had great layers!
Basically if you want a good time at the movies just see all of these and remember to HAVE FUN! Because that’s what it’s all about!

THOUGHTS: I’ve seen Spider-Verse already and it was so damn good. I can’t wait to see The Mule because the trailer has been really great plus it’s Clint Eastwood directing. Once Upon A Deadpool looked so funny, I also can’t wait. I’m seeing Mortal Engines as well but I’m not excited, trailers weren’t great.
