Movie Review: 'Deadpool' (2016)

Ryan Reynolds’ comeback vehicle features a script armed to the teeth with non-stop zingers, a unique timeline and a decent supply of action sequences. The long-awaited “Deadpool” movie is everything you probably went in expecting as the sharp-tongued superhero makes his solo film debut as advertised, in splashy and derisive fashion.

#20: Gone Girl

Ever since the announcement that Gillian Flynn’s best-seller would be getting the adaptation treatment, there have been expectations. When it was announced thriller maestro David Fincher would be taking the helm those expectations were only heightened. “Gone Girl” possesses all of the elements of a 90’s style adult drama. From its domestic drama, fraught sensuality, violent subtext and ripped from the headlines premise, the groundwork for a word-of-mouth smash seems inevitable.

Despite the rarity of the suspense genre getting awards attention, the possibility still has people buzzing. One major key working to its box office advantage, is its cross appeal to both men and women. It’s an allure that should keep the excitement around “Gone Girl” from vanishing. Release Date: Oct 3

#10 Foxcatcher | When it debuted at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, “Foxcatcher” was thrust into the center of awards season conversation as an early frontrunner and the buzz has only been building since. Director Bennett Miller’s previous works include “Capote”, for which he was nominated for the Best Director Oscar, and the sports drama “Moneyball”.

For “Foxcatcher” Miller switches gears to the wrestling world. A shocking true crime drama, it focuses on the lives of Olympic wrestlers Mark (Channing Tatum) and David (Mark Ruffalo) Shultz and their relationship with multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carrell), a prominent sponsor for USA Wrestling in the 90s.

#15 Nightcrawler | In the seedy underworld of a nocturnal Los Angeles, Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) has his sights set for success as a crime reporter. He soon begins walking a tightrope as both an observer and contributor to his lurid stories. Between losing 20 pounds and injuring his hand when a scene became too method, Gyllenhaal dedicated a lot to this role and just based off the trailer, it shows. He’s been building an impressive filmography full of diverse performances throughout his career and this could prove a crowning achievement, a chance to disappear a bit more.

The directing debut of screenwriter Dan Gilroy, “Nightcrawler” offers a jaunt into the scarcely explored world of tabloid journalism. Who are the people behind the salacious storylines of the media’s dark corner? There is an interesting commentary to be culled from that angle alone. As a character study on a guy who slips down the rabbit hole of ambition, it’s just as intriguing. Release Date: Oct 31
