Deadpool (2016) – Best Superhero Movie ?

R | 1h 48min | Action, Adventure, Comedy | 12 February 2016 (USA)

Laugh Out Loud!! This has to be the funniest superhero movie ever. I did not expected Ryan Reynolds to be this funny. Was he always this hilarious? He gave a fantastic performance as Deadpool. Reynold had made Deadpool one of the most beloved characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Deadpool is a unique superhero similar to Wolverine’s ability to heal itself which made him even cooler. I would like to see a match Wolverine vs Deadpool or a crossover. That would be epic. With so many of popular superheroes being made into a live-action movie, would Deadpool be able to become part of the popularity?

Deadpool began in a fight scene where Wade as Deadpool caused a scene on a highway looking for Ajax (Ed Skrein). We saw some of his extraordinary abilities such as recovering from a bullet shot and slashing bad guys into pieces all while being funny. Also, the slow motion was pretty smooth. Until the part when Deadpool used his two swords to stab the thug and carried him up with both of his swords, that’s when the flashback began to tell us how he became Deadpool. Without revealing too much of the synopsis, Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) had a happy life with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), but later discovered he has cancer. Vanessa was worried about Wade and looking for ways to help him. Until one day, Wade decided to abandon Vanessa to try out the experiment to cure his cancer. As a result, the cancer was gone and he has incredible power, but his face was distorted. Now, he has to wear a hood to cover his face because it is horrifying to look. That’s why Wade/Deadpool was desperately looking for Ajax to find a cure for his face. 

For me, Deadpool is an amazing adventure and comedy film where a person can laugh at almost every scene while seeing the character in bloody action. My favorite part is when Vanessa and Wade went to check his diagnosis with the doctor about his cancer. Wade was speaking in his head about how every time he looks at Vanessa’s face as if it was his first time. Meanwhile, Vanessa was asking questions after questions about ways to cure his cancer. I thought that was hilarious. The story and action are well-balanced without the generic box office hit elements. It’s not often a movie of this quality can be so entertaining. Especially when it’s about a superhero character. 

Deadpool is a crazy and hilarious movie. From what I heard it is just as loud, violent, and crazy funny as the first film. Highly recommended to all hero fans all over the world. The quick wit jokes were smooth and effortless. Deadpool is available to watch on Amazon here or FandangoNow here

Life of Pi (2012)

PG | 2h 7min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy | 21 November 2012 (USA)

Life of Pi is based on the book by Yann Martel. I read the book before the movie had came out, but unfortunately, I had no idea what I have just read. The only thing I remembered was about a young man and a tiger on a boat.

From the trailers, the movie did look beautiful. It also looked interesting to know a little about the origins of the main character. Ang Lee, the director of Life of Pi and some other really good movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain. It looks like Lee had done the ambitious by making this movie.

I saw the movie on DVD because when the movie first came out in theater, I really wanted to see the movie, but did not had the chance to. The movie came out when I was in high school. At that time I did not have any friends and did not want to watch it alone in theater. 

Life of Pi is a story about Piscine Patel or “Pi”, who tells a story to a writer (Rafe Spall) who wanted to know how the origins of his life were like. So, Pi tells his story about him as a teenager (Suraj Sharma), who grew up in India, was introduced to various religion as a child, and his family owned a zoo.

When his family decided to sell the zoo, they wanted to move all the way to Canada by ship. The saddest part was when a shipwreck had occurred, Pi had survived and the rest of his family did not made it because they were asleep. He was castaway on a lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan, and a Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker. However, when three of the animals died, Pi and Richard Parker started having a connection with each other on the boat.

The acting of the two actors who played the different versions of Pi. Suraj Sharma played Pi as a teenager, and he delivered a great performance. His innocence, religious curiosities, and emotions were all believable. Irrfan Khan also delivered a great performance playing Pi as an adult, it was interesting hearing his story about Pi’s struggle to survive.

Ang Lee did an excellent job in directing Life of Pi. The character development and vulnerability of the the character Pi was felt after watching the film. Especially the part when it was the last time Pi saw Richard Parker without saying goodbye and looking back at him. Very emotional moment. After seeing Life of Pi, I really wanted to watch some of his other movies.

Life of Pi is a magical experience that deserves to win multiple awards. Definitely a timeless film for other major filmmakers to reference and learn from. The story telling and the visual are breathtaking. Highly recommended. You can watch Life of Pi on Amazon here or FandangoNow here.
