Does Wade Wilson a.k.a Deadpool work 9 to 5? (Video)

The super duo, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, return with the sequel to the Marvel Comics hit, Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin and Brianna Hildebrand return to star alongside Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller and Jack Kesy in this enjoyably obnoxious sequel.

If you haven’t yet seen Deadpool 2 in theatres, the story line for the sequel is that you favourite foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (a.k.a Deadpool), creates the X-Force team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young lad with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.

 

 

Canadians may particularly enjoy the sequel because it’s full of Canadian jokes and references. In fact those of you who attended the Toastmasters International Convention in Vancouver last summer, you may have seen some film crews there as Deadpool 2 was filmed in various location including downtown, near the convention centre and even in front of our hotel – of course depending on where you’re staying.

Watch Live: Google Pixel 2 coming October 4th?

Google - Oct 4, 2017

A suspicious email arrives in my inbox with the subject line, “Ok Google, how many days until Oct 4?” An animated GIF pops up on the screen with the showing the same question, then a reply, “20 days.” At first I thought it was suspicious especially since it was fairly non-descript email. It had short links and a PNG attachment and no signature line. After further investigation, I determined it was legit and realized it was a teaser for some new stuff coming from Google.

Pardon my suspiciousness – my scam and phasing radar is always on high.  Read more at Canoe Tech Blog.

I can honestly say I’ve never fallen off a hoverboard, but then again, I only took one for a test drive once and someone was holding me for part of the way and when I finally decided to go solo I barely put the pedal to the metal. Now should I have truly revved it up, for lack of a better term, my feet and the hoverboard would surely have parted ways.  Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

okja

If you can’t get enough Netflix and want to enhance your listening experience in addition to 4K and HDR viewing, the company just announced, that starting today it will be adding Dolby Atmos sound support to the service starting with Bon Joon Ho’s Okja which recently had its debut at the Cannes Film Festival.

If Dolby Atmos is new to you, think of it as like surround sound on steroids. Instead of just having sound all around, the sound will actually travel in three dimensions. It places sound anywhere in the room and adding that often missing overhead sound like a jet speeding above you and totally immersing you right into the action. Read More at Canoe_Tech Blog.
