MOVIE REVIEW: “Deadpool 2” cured the common cold, found Amelia Earhart, got all the Infinity Stones, and stopped global warming

Deadpool 2

Now, if that title wasn’t enough to grab your attention by the twig and berries, I seriously don’t know what will. Oh, wait. You have no idea who’s writing this, do you?
