Deadpool 2 (2018)

Slo naslov: Deadpool 2
Država: ZDA
Jezik: angleščina
Leto: 2018
Dolžina: 119' ,  Imdb
Žanri: komedija, akcija, avantura
Režija: David Leitch
Scenarij: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, Ryan Reynolds
Igrajo: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Zazie Beetz, Karan Soni, Shioli Kutsuna


Zakaj spreminjati nekaj, kar je dobro delovalo že prvič? Vprašanje je bilo le, ali scenaristični tandem Rhett Reese-Paul Wernick (ki se mu je to pot pridružil še glavni igralec Ryan Reynolds) lahko ustvari dovolj zanimivih situacij in duhovitih dialogov, ter kako se bo v dirigentski vlogi znašel bivši kaskader in nadobudni režiser David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde), ki je na režiserskem stolčku nasledil Tima Millerja. Zmagovita formula prvega filma je uporabljena tudi v nadaljevanju zgodbe o najbolj zabavnem Marvelovem junaku in tako smo dobili eno zabavnejših akcijskih komedij tekočega leta, ki je najmanj enakovredna, če ne celo boljša, od prvega filma.

Wade Wilson ali Deadpool je superjunak, ki je mnogim nevarnim ljudem stopil na žulj in si nakopal nemalo sovražnikov. Nekega dne nekdo izmed teh potrka na njegova vrata in uniči njegove sanje o skupni prihodnosti s punco Venesso, nakar naš superjunak pade v depresijo. Smisla za humor sicer ne izgubi, toda mine kar nekaj časa, preden ga prebujeni očetovski gen ponovno požene v akcijo. Wade namreč poskuša pomagati  mlademu in težavnemu mutantu Russellu – igra ga simpatični mladi Novozelandec Julian Dennison, opažen v Lovu na divjaka (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, 2016, Taika Waititi) – ki ga želi uničiti Cable (Josh Brolin), terminatorju podobni supervojak iz preteklosti. 

Novi Deadpool se resda ne more pohvaliti z ne vem kako sofisticirno zgodbo in večplastnostjo likov (to nam "v kamero" prizna tudi sam glavni junak), vendar teh kvalitet od filma tega tipa niti ne pričakujemo. Njegov osnovni namen je gledalcu ponuditi dobro zabavo, kar mu z manjšimi odstopanji odlično uspeva skozi večji del skoraj dve uri dolgega filma. Izpostaviti velja domiselne, zabavne dialoge, v katerih ne manjka samoironije in zanimivih opažanj postavljenih v kontekst superherojskih filmov in popularne kulture nasploh. Ob hitrem tempu in gobčnem junaku ni enostavno "ujeti" vseh domislic in namigov in v luči tega spoznanja morda ni zgrešeno povedati, da govorimo o filmu, ki bi se ga izplačalo videti tudi dvakrat. Dobro sestavljeno in uravnoteženo je tudi jedro igralske zasedbe, z dobro kemijo med ključnimi protagonisti, ki prispevajo svoj delež k celostnemu šarmu igralskega ansambla. In potem je tu še prispevek Davida Leitcha, ki v obstoječi koncept idealno vkomponira njemu svojstveno koreografijo s humorjem prežetih akcijskih prizorov, obenem pa sem zadovoljen, da mu ni mar, kaj bodo o rabi ultra nasilnega črnega humorja povedali strici, ki ustvarjalce strašijo s tistim velikim »R«. Celo glavni junak se potrudi, da nam pojasni, zakaj je Deadpool v resnici družinski film, in jaz mu verjamem. Toliko smeha v kino dvorani že dolgo nisem slišal in to je najboljši dokaz nesmiselnosti tovrstnih klasifikacij.

Game Night (2018)

Foto: Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.


Slo naslov: Družabni večer
Država: ZDA
Jezik: angleščina
Leto: 2018
Dolžina: 100' Imdb
Žanri: komedija, krimi, misterij
Režija: John Francis Daley, Jonathan M. Goldstein
Scenarij: Mark Perez 
Igrajo: Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Jason Bateman, Jesse Plemons, Billy Magnussen, Kylie Bunbury, Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris, Joshua Mikel, Camille Chen



Dobrodošli v tipičnem ameriškem predmestju. Široke ulice, urejeni dovozi in negovana trata pred domovi, v katerih svoja srečna in rahlo dolgočasna življenja živijo pripadniki ameriškega srednjega razreda. Zakonca Max (Jason Bateman) in Annie (Rachel McAdams) sta vedno uživala v preizkusih znanja, kvizih in podobnih igrah (tako sta se pravzaprav spoznala), zato na svojem domu za nekaj najbližjih prijateljev z veseljem organizirata družabne večere na katerih se kratkočasijo z igranjem družbenih iger. Del te ekipe bi želel postati tudi čudaški sosed Gary (Jesse Plemons), ki ga po ženini smrti na ta srečanja na vabijo več. Max in Anne sicer poskušata posvetiti čarom starševstva, vendar preiskave pokažejo, da so njegovi spermiji preleni. Razlog je morda psihosomatski in ko se v Maxovo življenje nepričakovano vrne njegov starejši, uspešnejši in v vseh pogledih superiornejši brat Brooks (Kyle Chandler), ter organizira inovativen družabni večer s prav posebno glavno nagrado, Max začuti priložnost, da končno stopi iz bratove sence in utrdi svojo samozavest. Občutek je, da so ustvarjalci v takšnem izhodišču in kvalitetni igralski zasedbi imeli dober temelj za zanimivo dramedijo, vendar se tu stvari zasučejo v smeri akcijske komedije, nakar film začne drseti v nesmiselno burlesko, ki od gledalca zahteva izklop možganov in sprijaznitev z absurdnimi scenarističnimi zasuki in situacijami, v katerih na prste ene roke lahko preštejem prizore, ki so vsaj malo zabavni. Scenarist Mark Perez z banalno preslikavo idej iz Fincherjeve Igre in postavitvijo le-teh v komični okvir ne doseže praktično nič. Če sem iskren, v spominu imam le obrise dogajanja, zmešnjavo z bolgarsko mafijo, dragocenim jajcem s pomembnim seznamom, neumno idejo, da temnopolta Američanka ne ve kako izgleda Denzel Washington, in en dober štos s strelno rano. Zgodbo ne reši niti poudarjanje fantastičnih lastnosti ritke Rachel McAdams. In ko pomislim na njeno ritko se nemudoma spomnim, kako so isto veliko bolje in subtilnejše v zgodbo znali integrirati režiserji in snemalci druge sezone Pravega detektiva.

Damir is an insecure car-park attendant living a reclusive life. Tasya, a tourist, has her handbag and passport stolen and shows up, disoriented, on Damir's doorstep. He takes pity on her and offers her a bed for the night. She becomes ill overnight and is feverish and incomprehensible for a day, waking unable to remember who or where she is. Damir lets her stay while they try to solve this riddle. She spends her days in his flat while he continues his routine. However, instead of trying to find her own life again, she begins to impose herself into his world in an increasingly forceful way.

Damir cannot summon the courage to confront Tasya and she becomes progressively more comfortable and controlling. Damir’s sleep is broken by disturbing dreams as Tasya becomes more embedded in his life. She becomes aggressive and he feels his space invaded. He catches Tasya doing odd things, but begins to doubt his own perception of reality.

One day Damir arrives home from work to find Tasya has moved into his room and moved out all his belongings. He gathers all his strength to assert himself and make her leave, but she manipulates him into accepting the situation. Damir is left feeling helpless and that night becomes delirious with a fever, which may actually be Tasya’s doing. She nurses him but he suspects she has a darker agenda and is deliberately keeping him incapacitated. His dreams escalate and cross into his waking life, and Tasya dreams the same dreams, as if she has also taken over his unconscious.

Can Damir find it in himself to struggle out of this trap and regain control of his life, or will Tasya take him over completely, leaving no trace of Damir in the world? -Official Site

Takemura has no friends and no family. He's a student but he doesn't have any particular ambitions. In other words, he isn't going anywhere fast. Were all this not enough, the sorry sad sack has a debt of 800,000 yen. Fukuhara, a surly debt collector with a glorious mullet, is on his case. After roughing Takemura up, he gives him an ultimatum-72 hours to pay up, or else. Takemura barely has his wits about him again when he runs across Fukuhara a second time, and this time the thug has a different proposal-a walk. That's right, in exchange for a million yen, Takemura must accompany Fukuhara on a walk across the city of Tokyo. Starting in a distant corner of the city, they begin their trek towards downtown, striking up a conversation. It's at this point that Fukuhara admits that he's recently killed his wife, and intends to turn himself in at Kasumagaseki police station-because, he says, it's the finest in town. The pair's itinerary, however, is hardly a quick and direct one. The ... Written by Nicolas Archambault for Fantasia Film Festival

There's definitely something terrible going on in the peaceful suburban community, as, one after the other, otherwise loving and caring parents mysteriously turn into ravenous carriers of an unfathomable pandemic that targets their offspring. Suddenly, every son and daughter--not only in the neighbourhood but also in the entire region--have to run for their lives, as the rage-filled murderous intent is simply as unstoppable as it is inexplicable. Of course, Brent and Kendall's teenage children are no exception, and before long, the simmering but usual familial tensions will take a completely different meaning. Kids, stop hiding. Mum and Dad love you so much.
