It's A Sin 1x02 Reviewed

Ritchie acts nefariously as the shadow of ever present doom comes closer. There is perennial wretchedness. Jill doesn't get to do much beyond react to events. Ritchie is intolerable. This was not unabashedly nostalgic. Ritchie tests social constraints to their limits. Ritchie is a reckless slut. It is now 1984 and there is no warmth or decency.


Roscoe is banned from a family wedding. Ritchie is incomparably depraved and unpleasant. Men in their underpants walk around. People lack personal morals and are ludicrously, wilfully destructive. This was not compellingly awful. This was not an ostensibly idyllic time. People won't listen to AIDS warnings. Ritchie spews conspiracy theories and is in denial and is wildly irresponsible.


Jill has to help a friend who has it. There is no gratitude or appreciation for Jill. Objective evidence is ignored. Colin ends up consequently excluded from his job. Ritchie is verbally vicious and spews false assurances and vehemently denies knowledge.


Jill is overtly giving. This is emblematic of all that is wrong. Only Jill is concerned, she's the notable exception. All other 80s socio-political shocks are ignored. Ritchie has strategic incompetence. Profound despair is coming. Roscoe is awful. Colin's creepy ex-boss gets busted in a public bog. A dreadful family 'help' the sick man. This was not seriously fantastic. Jill points out the risks, Ritchie won't listen.


Jill works and only she cares. After the sick man dies, his family burn everything of his: bedding, photos, a videotape and baby photos in the back garden. The gang go on living promiscuously and excessively.

My ex did a great abandonment. There is acute loneliness. My ex had no loyalty, fidelity or commitment. How did things get tumultuous? My ex = really awful. Am I regrettable to my ex? My ex is not conciliatory. He did deliberate misrepresentation. I feel a deep and abiding hatred. My ex = fundamentally terrible. My ex did venal and lowdown behaviour. There is no satisfactory explanation from my ex. My ex = unspeakably unfair.

Movie Reviews: Lowlife + Deadpool 2 + The Homesman

Lowlife (2017)

Unwatchable.


~
Deadpool 2 (2018)

Ryan Reynolds thinks he is a movie star. Deadpool kills people and a cab driver wants to be a contract killer. People are purposefully awful. Deadpool's girlfriend dies. Deadpool does manipulation tools. Another X-Man shows up. There is an unfunny cameo. There is sap and bordeom and finally Cable (Josh Brolin) shows up.


An annoying kid is violent and annoying. People get sick of Deadpool. There is swearing and this was boring. This was completely pointless. This was not compelling. People mumble. X-Force show up briefly. Dominio has luck as a superpower.


There is violence and death. Wade should let the annoying terrorist kid die. Deadpool time travels. I did not like this. I am so over superhero films.


Best Lines:

“I'll never not picture that.”


“No killing anyone. Ever.”


“Prison wallet.”


“A dated metaphor for racism in the 60s.”


“Winter Soldier arm.”


“Define chance.”


“An annoying clown dressed up as a sextoy.”


“Why are you dressed like the unabomber?”


“Zip it Thanos!”


“Black Black Widow.”


“I'm sorry you said that while making heavy eye contact and applying lip balm.”


“Which 'Sharknado' are we on?”


“You're not the revenge type.”


“Gimme your best shot one eyed willie!”


“Cried when they cancelled 'Felicity'.”


“So dark. Are you sure you're not from the DC universe?”


“Shut your goddam trash mouth.”


“A guy who can't draw feet!”
