Deadpool 2

The Merc With a Mouth comes again

If you have no idea who freakin’ Shatterstar is, you’re still going to get some rock solid belly laughs out of Deadpool 2, but the deeper your knowledge of early-’90s comic books, the more you’re going to feel fan-serviced.

You Were Never Really Here

Film Review

You Were Never Really Here

Art house action flick and its main character both feel bad

You Were Never Really Here enters the genre of cathartically violent shoot-’em-up story of emotionally wounded assassins and their doomed betrayers/targets but fails to provide an overall logic to the bloody proceedings.

“Muppet Babies” on Disney Junior

Cute, simple-minded and upbeat to a fault, the new “Muppet Babies” is clearly aimed at very young kids. Grown ups may be tempted but they aren’t likely to stick around for long.
