Final Trailer: Deadpool 2

There is just something about Deadpool that appeals to every geek boy. I mean, let’s face it, we all wanted to be ninjas growing up, and Wade is basically that, with razor-sharp katanas and that skin-tight leather outfit. We always wanted to get away with saying whatever we want, to whoever we want, and to have a “try me” if you don’t like it attitude. And Wade certainly delivers there, but the best thing about Deadpool is that he breaks the fourth wall, a lot. And it is always funny as hell when he does it!

Rampage

Rampage was by far one of my favorite arcade games to play as a kid. It was simple and fun with a bit of a twist, you were the monster. You got to smash buildings, cars, and eat people as either a giant werewolf or a massive gorilla. For a kid with a lot of pent up video game rage, Rampage was the perfect place to escape watching my friends who could master combos on Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. So when I heard about a film adaptation of the game starring The Rock, I was like – yes please!
