TrailerWatch “Once Upon A Deadpool” brings…a family friendly Merc?

Well there kiddies. Santa Pool is coming, and he’s bringing a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2. I’m not exactly sure what I’m feeling, but I think I’ll go with hope. There’s new stuff filmed just for this version, much like the scenes filmed for the original Halloween‘s TV run. So, am I the only one hoping the R rated version gets these new scenes too?

Til then? Let’s watch Deadpool and his new bestie Fred Savage reenact the wraparound from The Princess Bride. Whether Fred wants to or not.

Prize Packs for “Robin Hood”! Want one? Yeah you do!

Y’all, I’m so stoked for Robin Hood. Yes, Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx are cool. But OMGOMGOMG kickass singer/comedian/Renaissance Man Tim Minchin will be Friar Tuck! I love him so, so much. His “White Wine in the Sun” is on my must-listen holiday list. But anyway, Robin Hood. I’ve got stuff for ya!  And it’s really, really good stuff. But first? Synopsis!

Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.

#SpoilerFree “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” – a sumptuous sophomore slump

“I hate Paris.”
“I always wanted to go here!”

Why am I starting with two quotes this go’round? Because like these discordant bits, I’m torn. There’s a part of me that absolutely loves what Grindelwald has done in terms of fleshing out the darker, less kid-friendly parts of the wizarding world. Just like real life, there are dark places where bad things – sometimes very bad things – happen. Individuals get killed because they’re simply in the way. A reflexive reaction had far-reaching consequences. And an adorable little horned lizard-thing gets used. (Stick a pin in that last one.) It feels like real, and while it may not have the same vibe as the Potter series, or even the first Beasts, it’s understandable. Continue reading

Columbia Screening Pass-palooza: “Second Act”!

Hey, you ready for the December holidays? ME NEITHER. So why not grab yourself some passes for a bit of pre-Chrismakwanzyulekkah fun? Yeah, it’s not close calendar-wise, but I couldn’t help myself. I’ve got passes for Second Act, starring Jennifer Lopez! Synopsis!

SECOND ACT is an inspirational comedy starring Jennifer Lopez as Maya, a 40-year-old woman struggling with frustrations of not having achieved more in life. As an experienced, quickwitted, perceptive employee, she is passed over for a promotion solely because she doesn’t have a college degree. Until, that is, she gets the chance to prove that street smarts are as valuable as book smarts, and that it is never too late for a Second Act.

Let’s go!

Baltimore’s Christmas Village is coming back – starting this weekend!

I love a German Christmas Village. But my passport is out of date. So? I wander to the Inner Harbor to get my gingerbread on.

What, you haven’t heard of the Christmas Village? It’s awesome! I was lucky enough to check it out last year before the grand opening, and I’m not ashamed to say I went back four more times. (What can I say – I love a good currywurst.)

Shopping, music, and of course lots of lovely German feels – can’t go wrong! Plus, this weekend? Totally free! (Okay, so it’s free on weekdays, but typically it’s $5 on the weekends…)

Read what they’ve got to say:

The Horror! – “Overlord”!

Not the gory bloodbath that I’d been “warned” about, but gorehounds will be pleased at the amount of red in this horror tale set during WWII. A story that combines war thriller with body horror in a way that kept my eyes firmly on screen, not wanting to miss a moment.

There’s plenty of suspense as the group of American soldiers try to figure out what’s turning their mission into something much more sinister, thanks to stellar performances by Jovan Adepo as newly minted Private Boyce, Wyatt Russell as Corporal Ford (Kurt’s son does his poppa’s snarl proud) and GoT’s Pilou Asbæk as baddie Wafner. Combined with excellent direction by Julius Avery and stellar cinematography by Laurie Rose and Fabian Wagner, this means Overlord is one helluva fun, engaging ride.
