Deadpool 2: Non-Spoilery Review from Emergency Awesome

To round off my All Deadpool, All The Time week (I’m off to see the movie this evening and will review if I have time tomorrow, but it might be difficult to throw in spoilertext on the phone[1]), here’s Emergency Awesome’s spoilerless review of the movie.

[1] Then again, the WordPress editing board seems to have been improved and I can just make it white text without worrying about all the HTML tagging, so it might be easy. Let’s wait and see.

Now obviously if you don’t want any spoilers at all and want to go in completely pristine, don’t watch the video. I didn’t particularly care (although I do want to avoid actual spoilers as much as possible), so I watched it. And it doesn’t give anything away, except that this looks like another huge success. It overturns expectations based on the trailers (although not as cheatily as the Infinity War ones), and exceeds the hype in some unexpected ways.

I can’t wait.

At this point I’m wondering if (spoilertext) the kid is going to turn out to be Cable in the past, or something like that. But I’m not going to speculate too much.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

  1. So fucking psyched. But this weekend, it’s Infinity War Take 2: This Time with the Family.[1]

    [1] The wife keeps trying to get out of it though. I’m thinking of withholding sex. Or something.
