Everything Everywhere All at Once

Well, that was an antidote to Marvel films, wasn’t it? Best multiverse story outside of Rick & Morty.  Bloody staggering.  Love love loved it.

Deadpool 2

It was a long night – but once you rewatch Deadpool it’s foolish not to play on. Not sure if the streamed version of this was different to the last one I watched, or whether my recollections differ due to

Deadpool

Rewatched this purely because I don’t sleep any more and have an infant to supervise. Deadpool continues to be the only Marvel property I give a monkey’s about.  Just a sweary, sarcastic joy to behold.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
