What You Should See

I don’t think there’s a single person alive who wouldn’t benefit from seeing Deadpool. And I mean that literally, figuratively, sincerely, sarcastically, horizontally, and vertically. Not seeing (Naziing?) Deadpool would be like not seeing (Naziing) Gone with the Wind or Citizen Kane, it’s that important.

Meanwhile, Zoolander 2 will probably do decent business, but none of us here saw the first one, none of us here have any intention of breaking that trend with the sequel, and all of us here recommend against it, at least for the sake of humanity. As for How to be Single, well, as much as I don’t vehemently believe a movie of this type has to be bad, there’s ample evidence to suggest it.

There’s also The Lady in the Van opening this weekend for those of you who always wanted to see how Professor McGonagall would have turned out if she had chosen the life of a weird old woman who lives in a van rather than a wizarding teacher, and of course Son of Saul is showing at the Princess if your idea of going to the movies aligns more with seeing what it was like in a World-War-II-era Auschwitz concentration camp.
