Unlike seemingly everyone else, I didn’t grow up on Winnie the Pooh. I knew the characters and, to an extent, I do really like them (especially Eeyore) but I don’t have those nostalgic memories with them. By reading this, you can probably guess what I thought of the film, but I do feel it’s an important piece of information to take into consideration whilst reading my review. Yes, the film didn’t work that for me which is a real disappointment as I really wanted to love Christopher Robin. A lack of emotional moments, a really bland story as well as a surprisingly depressing first half all led to me not connecting with the film in the same way that most of my screening did.
The merc with a mouth is back with a bigger and swearier sequel after the original set the world alight. The odds are once again stacked against our favourite hero, but this time he has a lot more help thanks to new heroes joining the frey. While it’s hard to argue ‘Deadpool 2’ is a bad film, it’s still a shame it feels like a bit of a disappointment.
In a few hours, I’m off to a midnight screening of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. I am beyond excited, probably more than I have been for any film ever. To be honest, it’s probably up there as the one of the things I’ve been most excited for ever. Now, while some will say “It’s just a film”, I am here telling you it’s not, at least not in my case.
