#2,250: The Good, The Bad, The Weird

The Good, The Bad, The Weird - ★★★★☆
This movie is like 12-grain bread. Even if you don't like it, you have to appreciate how much work it must have been to make.

Deadpool - ★★★☆☆
Hits the nail on the head as an adaptation - exactly what you (meaning me) would expect from Deadpool - and that's probably higher praise than it sounds, given how far astray some of Fox's other attempts have gone. Plus the costumes looked great!

Sukiyaki Western Django - ★★☆☆☆
The whole of this movie is greater than its parts, but making it through the parts was a real struggle. I think there's a version out there that's half an hour shorter than the one I saw, which just has to be a better cut.

Triple 9 - ★★☆☆☆
I wonder what happened to this movie. How did so many good actors sign up for this? The opening heist scene is kind of fun, but you're better off with Band of Robbers, which uses the plot of Triple 9 as the idiot character's comically bad plan.

 

Also, this has one of those posters that seems like a joke that went too far when an exec saw it by accident and thought it was badass, even though it's a shot of the main characters embarrassing themselves.
