Plot:
Sadie (Brianna Hildebrand) and McKayla (Alexandra Shipp) are best friends and do pretty much everything together. Most notably, they run an online channel together where they discuss true crime cases with which they’re both fascinated. Trying to gain popularity for themselves and their show, they try to catch a serial killer in the area. But when they do catch up with him, a simple capture seems not enough anymore.

Tragedy Girls is a very entertaining film, even if it doesn’t revolutionize the “twist on the slasher-movie” counter-genre that is now its own genre. I had fun all the way through.

Plot:
Wade (Ryan Reynolds) used to be a special forces agent, now he’s a mercenary and he’s very much in love with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin). Things should be simply great, but then he’s diagnosed with cancer and his chances aren’t good at all. In his desperation he agrees to an experimental treatment administered by Ajax (Ed Skrein). But the treatment doesn’t go quite as planned. While effective, it is also torture, leaving Wade healthy and with superstrength and healing abilities, but also with a burnt face and a thirst for vengeance.

Deadpool was funny and entertaining and as juvenile as can be expected from this film. It’s far from perfect and there were quite a few things I took exception to, but overall, I enjoyed it a whole fucking lot.
