    These crazy creatures are supposedly emotional support animals

    If you’re planning a summer vacation and bringing your emotional support animal on the plane with you, you may want to do some research first.

    American Airlines is making it very clear: Insects, goats and hedgehogs cannot be brought on planes as emotional support animals.

    The airline revised its guidelines for comfort animals on flights. Those who want to bring such an animal on board now have to file paperwork 48 hours before a flight, and there are new restrictions on which types of animals are permitted.

    In a statement, American Airlines said they support the rights of customers, from veterans to those who are disabled, with legitimate needs for a trained service animal or support animal. Unfortunately, untrained animals can lead to safety issues for employees, other customers, and working dogs aboard the aircraft.

    Emotional support animals provide comfort to those suffering from emotional or psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression and panic attacks. They’re typically allowed to fly on planes for free if they meet certain requirements.

    American Airlines said that between 2016 and 2017, the number of customers transporting service or support animals aboard their planes rose by more than 40%.

    Ferrets, spiders, and non-household birds, like chickens and hawks are also banned. Unclean animals, or animals with an odor, are unwelcome, as well.

    This one may be hard to believe, miniature horses, meanwhile, remain okay, so long as they’re properly trained as service animals.

    The airline’s revised rules go into effect on July 1, 2018.

    Hollywood star makes unexpected appearance on popular Korean singing competition show

    A Hollywood star made an unexpected appearance on a popular Korean singing competition show called King of Mask Singer where contestants all perform in masks to hide their identities from the judges.

    Although, this US Hollywood actor wasn’t there as a guest judge, he actually performed a tune. Can you guess who?

    Ok I’ll give you a hint. He is starring in the upcoming movie, Deadpool 2, coming to theaters May 18.

    If you still don’t know, here’s a word scramble for you … Nayr Seynoldr.

    Deadpool 2 Movie Review

    It’s time for another movie review presented by our good friends over at FatCats Gilbert on the southwest corner of Greenfield and Baseline! FatCats Gilbert is the best place to see all of the latest box office hits including not one, not two, but THREE comic book movies in Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Deadpool 2. If someone from 2005 said that three comic book movies would be in theaters at the same time thirteen years later, that person probably would have been called a dirty liar. Today, it’s possible at FatCats Gilbert!

    The first Deadpool was lightning in a bottle, and it was one of my favorite movies of 2016. I also think that it’s a top ten comic book movie of all time. Maybe I’ll post that list sometime soon. Anyways, the first movie was good enough to make Deadpool 2 one of my most anticipated movies of the year. Though I thought that Tim Miller did an excellent job with the action, I was excited to see what David Leitch could do with this character and this universe. Leitch was one of the directors of the first John Wick, then he directed last year’s Atomic Blonde which had one of the best action sequences I’ve ever seen. Deadpool 2 had a lot to live up to. Could it do it?

    Deadpool 2 is directed by David Leitch and stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Julian Dennison, Morena Baccarin, Stefan Kapicic, and Brianna Hildebrand. Between the official synopsis from Fox and the message released stating that Deadpool demands silence, similar to the way Thanos demanded silence, I think I’m going to keep the plot details a little bit vague. When Cable comes from the future to eliminate a child with huge implications on the future, Deadpool falls face first into a protective role while teaming up with other heroes like Domino, Colossus, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead.

    Man, this has been an unbelievable year for superhero movies, and Deadpool 2 keeps with that trend. In case Ryan Reynolds didn’t prove that he was born to play Deadpool in the first movie, the sequel locks him in. It’s not just the swearing, violence, dirty jokes, blood, and nudity that makes Ryan Reynolds work so well as the Merc with a Mouth. Yes, all of that stuff is used perfectly, and they milk every ounce of R-rated hilarity and brilliance out of the writers, but Reynolds just becomes this character. He isn’t acting. I believe that Ryan Reynolds is the closest thing Hollywood has to Wade Wilson, and he probably gives such an incredible performance because he’s so close to the material. There’s a serious mental connection between Reynolds and Deadpool, and it’s the reason that both of these movies have been so great. He disappears into this role, and it isn’t because he wears a mask. The action in this movie is also spectacular. David Leitch is a great director of action, so I’m not exactly surprised, but I absolutely have to mention it. There are so many action sequences, and they all serve characters. The action isn’t violence for the sake of violence. It all goes towards building characters, powers, and the world. Domino and Cable are both mega stand-outs in this film, and it’s because Leitch does such a great job showcasing them through their powers. Domino, in particular, has a great sequence that proves Deadpool wrong. Luck is a super power, and Zazie Beetz pulls off the experience and the fighting ability wonderfully. Cable, who is one of the coolest comic book characters to ever hit the screen, also gets plenty of time to show off his futuristic weapons and fighting techniques, and they match well with Deadpool’s.

    Deadpool 2 also meshes tones exceptionally well. This is a dark movie. For all of the comedy, that hits, and hits, and hits again, there’s some dark stuff in this movie that really raises the stakes for Deadpool. Again, I can’t say much about it because Deadpool demands my silence, but there are some excellent emotional moments. I never expected to feel as down as I did at points in this movie, and the low points work because of how close we are to Wade Wilson as a character. At the same time that it pushed me emotionally, it had me cracking up at hysterical jokes and meta-humor. The trailers for the movie were funny, but there is so much more in the movie that hits like a ton of bricks. Finally, the chemistry among all of the characters is so much fun to watch. This universe is extremely so well-established that the comedy and drama created by the similarities and differences in the characters lets this movie flow beautifully. It’s fast-paced, and the delivery from each character perfectly bounces right off the screen and hits the other characters effectively.

    It’s only human nature to compare sequels to originals, so let’s do just that. I adored the first Deadpool. In fact, it may have been impossible for me to walk out of Deadpool 2 thinking that it is a better movie for one simple reason: the magic. 2016’s Deadpool was lightning in a bottle in a fresh way. I was familiar with the character of Deadpool, but it was hard to imagine a studio having the guts to go as far as Fox did with the movie. Well, they went there in 2016, and unfortunately the shock and creativity of the original made it untouchable. I mean that in the best way possible. I don’t have enough positive things to say about the first movie, but that does make it more difficult for the second movie to find that same level. The magic is there, but the line-crossing and filterless dialogue will never have that refreshingly new feel that the first Deadpool had. I also think that the movie started a little bit slow. It took a few minutes to completely hook me, but once I was hooked, I held on for the rest of the runtime.

    If you liked Deadpool in 2016, I have no doubt in my mind that you’ll enjoy Deadpool 2. It’s another healthy dose of the same style and comedy as the original, but it goes bigger with more awesome characters to put on full display. Ryan Reynolds is unsurprisingly perfect, and every joke and line of dialogue hits. He disappears into the role, and he was truly born to play Wade Wilson. David Leitch nails the action, and he gives the new characters a chance to shine in applause-worthy ways. I was also shocked by just how much heart and emotion this movie had. Don’t be fooled by the jokes. It’s extremely dark, but Leitch does a great job gelling the comedy and the drama without any sort of choppy feeling. I do think that it falls a little bit short of the magic of the first one, but there’s almost no way that it possibly could have matched the original. Nevertheless, it’s a very special movie in its own right, and it’s a well-worthy successor of the ground-breaking 2016 film. Oh, and, not to get carried away, but it has the single greatest mid-credits scene in the history of filmmaking. Don’t leave without seeing it because it’s worth the price of admission alone. I can only imagine how much fun was had making this movie. I’m going to give Deadpool 2 a 9.2/10.
