In the third one Kylo, Han and Luke stand semi-transparent and proud that yet another trilogy has been defeated.

Saw “Ant Man and the Wasp.” I liked it, much more of a stand-alone film though you need to see the first Ant Man movie and Captain America: Civil War (and the end links it backed to the latest Avengers movie). It had some entertaining moments including some true comedy. It was well cast with good chemistry.

Verdict:
See it if you are following the MCU. Like all Marvel movies they all tie together in some way. It’s a good entry.

“NKVD.”

Not really a new one but I saw “Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut” this weekend. This is the uncut version that’s 4 hours long.

I saw this one in the theater when it first came out and liked it. A second viewing made me see the flaws and watching an uncut version made the flaws worse.

For those who haven’t seen it the Watchmen were costumed heroes who lacked real powers except for one, Dr. Manhattan. Dr. Manhattan possesses real powers as the result of a lab accident and is so powerful he is godlike.

I liked the premise though it seemed to me the heroes did possess greater speed, agility and strength. The heroes were also flawed in ways you don’t see in regular Marvel or DC. A good example is the Comedian (played brilliantly by Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a man capable of committing horrifying acts without batting much of an eye.

I won’t go into the story but it’s pretty standard. In the uncut version there is also a secondary story about a kid reading a comic.

I can’t say I really recommend it. The acting was subpar except for Morgan and Jackie Earle Haley. Haley plays Rorschach, a character so driven by moral absolutes he commits hideous murders in the name of justice.

This is not your typical hero movie, see it if you like your heroes with ugly flaws.

Deadpool ruined superhero movies for me. It just shits all over them.

You should watch the Deadpool 2 Superdooper Cut. It's not the same movie you saw in the cinema.

It's the proper movie.

I went to see Deadpool 2 at the cinema and walked out thinking WTF? Did I miss something?

Yeah, nah. They chopped a lot.
