Deadpool 2 is the much anticipated sequel to the 2016 classic and this time round the incredible mercenary Deadpool is set to battle the despicable Cable and any other bad guy he needs to-to save a boy’s life. The official movie plot they’ve released is hilariously crafted and doesn’t have a single thing to do with the movie! Instead it pays ode to classics before it like back to the future and is ingenious in its marketing as it forces deadpool’s raunchy humor to the forefront of our minds. The people behind this movie are dedicated to keeping all the elements that made it such a stand out movie the first time round and gave deadpool its own pedestal among other superhero movies out there.

This is one inspiring and absolutely beautiful piece of animation.

Parvana’s life however becomes a whole lot more challenging following the wrongful arrest of her Father. In order to cope in such a patriarchal society Paravana cuts her hair, dresses like a boy and sets to work to support her family right alongside her friend.

She utilizes her talent for inventing beautiful stories to draw strength and courage from in order to keep going and to find her father and hopefully reunite her family.

This Period Drama explores the personal life of infamous Frankenstein author: Mary Shelley and specifically what her relationship with poet Percy Shelley was truly like. Within the movie its revealed Mary’s family disapproved of her mad love for Percy. They were further horrified when the couple went on to elope and Mary’s Half-sister Claire-tagged along. Down the line the couple came to stay at Lord Byron’s home at Lake Geneva were the guests were challenged to write a ghost story- which lead to Mary coining her standout novel: Frankenstein. What’s truly great about this movie is the way in which we get this context/insight into Mary’s life and how it all poured in to her novel (her brainchild). Just seeing the volatile relationship between Percy and Mary- certainly makes us think they were some very real influences for Frankenstein!
