ReelBlend Podcast #21: Spoiler-Free Deadpool 2 Reviews And Debating The Best Godfather Movie

Deadpool Marvel Comics

Don't call it a comeback. Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) has been a box-office commodity since dominating the frame in his debut movie back in 2016. So now that Deadpool 2 is dropping, we expect it to collect all of the box-office records, right? Well, the movie is off to a very fast start, breaking the Thursday night record for an R-rated film, so we will see how it continues to do all weekend long. And while you wait, listen to the ReelBlend guys break down the movie (NO SPOILERS!), and also react to Solo: A Star Wars Story! Want to download and listen later?

This episode is a lot of fun.

Fox 32 Chicago's Jake Hamilton and Fox 5 D.C.'s Kevin McCarthy went out to L.A. for the premiere of Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story, and both came back with different opinions. Give a listen to see where they fall. NO SPOILERS! For real, these are just reactions.

But as we were talking about Solo, the three guys talked at length about the possibility of a Lando Calrissian spinoff movie, and the news that there might be an Obi-wan Kenobi film. Will either happen? Neither? See what the guys think.

Donald Glover is Lando

This week's episode has been dedicated to Deadpool 2, which opened in theaters last night (so go see it). If you have been following the guys on social media, you probably know that Kevin is all in on this sequel. He and Sean both think it's better than the original, while Jake has his reservations. Listen to the episode to find out why.

And because the guys spent a lot of the week in the text chain discussing a sequel that surpassed its original, Sean chose #GodfatherBlend as the topic of this week's #Blend game. Which Godfather movie do you think is the best? It can't possibly be Three. Could it?
