Watched Moana on the plane. I liked it even more than the first time I saw it. 9/10.

Then I watched all but about the last 20 or 30 minutes of Focus, because they were predicting turbulance on arrival and collected the devices early. I've seen it before, but couldn't remember how it ended. Margot Robbie is gorgeous. I absolutely loved her as Harley Quinn. She's not bonkers in this movie, which is a disadvantage, but on the plus side she's not wearing disfiguring makeup.

Is anyone going to see hellboy?

I saw Hellboy a long time ago. I liked it.

There's a reboot out now-ish.

And that's what Brilligtove was talking about.

I guess that since I never get other people's jokes, it's only fair that other folks don't get my attempt at being silly.  :-\

Given your frequent self-profession of ignorance of contemporary popular culture, you will have to forgive my assuming that you were unaware of the reboot.

Hellboy (2019) 8/10

This movie lives in the same genre as Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. It knows what it is and behaves accordingly. It earns the hard R rating for gore and horrible ideas expressed on screen. There were many times I laughed out loud. My only criticisms are that one of the main characters is badly acted (Daniel Dae Kim as Ben Daimio), there were a few tine when it was clear the filmmakers had to search for a way to make a scene gross, and there was a bit too much exposition.

Sounds like everything I'm hoping for.

Now we need to square off Hell Boy against Deadpool. "Deadpool III: What the ass!"

My first reaction to that idea was "cool idea!" Then I started thinking about how vastly different the genres are and the idea began to decohere. I do like the way you think!

Hey, Deadpool 2 was full of ghosts. Short leap to demons. Imagine that they both think the other is at fault for some weird happenings. "I have to take him out!"

The run of the comics where some necromancer reanimated the dead Presidents, and the only one who could handle the PR nightmare of wasting Washington or Lincoln was Deadpool, would be a perfect substitution for Hellboy.

Heh, well, I haven't seen the new Hellboy yet, but Neil Marshall's first "big" production was Dog Soldiers, which was a pretty fun werewolf movie. I could see him doing something Evil Dead-like. I don't know if they would blend well together though.
Mooohn!

I was completely unaware of it. But I got it from the context that there is a new one.

It's more the tone and palette. Deadpool was R pop music full of bright colours and happy sounds. Hellboy was R rated death metal full of darkness and grim noise.

I don't think Wade Wilson would have a problem with a mash-up. The change in musical style would be when we shift from one protagonist to the other. A third, somber theme, would be for the real bad guy.
