Ryan Reynolds' RumpFollow

If you find the man sexy, then Deadpool is the movie for you because his butt is everywhere. And one scene of either his or his stuntman's penis shadow.

First, let me go ahead and eat crow about the Hard R rating. I thought it'd be distracting and ultimately take away from the movie, and I was wrong. They worked it in quite well. I don't think the swearing made the movie better, but at least the violence was so over the top that it worked. The Hard R even made the Stan Lee scene more hilarious. And that's what the movie really boils down to: Hilarity. If you're at all familiar with the character, you already know the jokes were going to be juvenile. Dick jokes, butt jokes, fart jokes, they're all in there. I mean even the start and end credits were getting laughs. Even the sex scene gets progressively sillier as it goes on. Lots of metajokes and fourth-wall breaking throughout the movie, as one would expect as well. Tons of Easter Eggs. Tons. Some painfully obvious and some subtle. If that's your thing you really have to be paying attention. Even I missed a couple until later when it just clicked.

Weirdly enough, I'd say the movie was a really violent love story. Kind of a really really really violent Princess Bride if I were stretching for describing it ... which I am. I don't know if I'd outright call it a date movie, but it's definitely noticeable.

Colossus was the movie's MVP though. As great as Reynolds was, the big steel boy scout stole the movie for me. You almost feel sorry for the guy as he tries to live up to being a superhero and then there's Deadpool undermining his every effort. Pretty much every scene with him is a riot. I think they could have done more with Negasonic and Blind Al but there was only so much movie.

For what it's worth, it was more Joe Kelly's manic Deadpool than Daniel Way's lolrandumb Deadpool. Thankfully only one mention of a chimichanga. I was kind of worried about that. My only real complaint was the ending. Just didn't feel "Deadpool" to me. I could have also done without the new catchphrase.

Anyway, if you actually liked the character before, this movie does him justice. And if you're looking for a funny movie and have the personality of a preteen, go for it. Well worth your money. The only people that might not like it are people that don't like the character to begin with or people with rods shoved up their asses ... which is another scene in this movie. I'd give the movie a 9/10, simply because I didn't like the ending. I'd probably see the movie again in the theater if it weren't for the eleventy-million movies coming out this year.

Apparently preteen is censored ...

The thing is, no other website using google analytic uses this word blocking list. It's gone nuts.

Weather was not bad, so I was able to go to the theater.

I really enjoyed the movie. The whole theater was pretty much non stop laughing, especially during the Deadpool v Colossus fight in the beginning. That probably got the most laughs out of me.

Was that one of SHIELD's Carriers they were fighting on, at the end?

I'm surprised that this far into the whole "Universe" movie scene, people still leave before the credits roll. Not even staying for the during credit scenes. It's what... an extra 5 minutes? That you paid for, but won't watch...

I thought it was hilarious, though I have the exact right sense of humor for this type of movie. I went to the 4:30 showing and was hugely surprised at the crowd. I went to a smaller theater than the one I usually go to because it was recently bought out and remodeled and I wanted to check out the place. The place only has four screens, but the theaters themselves are larger than most, so you can pack in almost twice as many people per screen. I got there late and was shocked to see about fifty people waiting in line. I literally bought the last ticket. Right after I bought mine, one of the creepy teenagers behind the counter disappointed a bunch of people behind me.

Anyway, good fight scenes, though a bit too much on the jumping and spinning. Ryan Reynolds was great, this may be the role he was born to play, the sense of humor is perfect for him. He got to make fun of everything, including himself several times. The villain was pretty much as generic as they get, I only remember his name because of the number of times it was used as punchline. I don't even remember if they bothered to name the woman he used as his sidekick, who was only really there so that Colossus had something to do other than chide Deadpool for not being a nice guy.

There really isn't much of a story, it's a simple revenge movie with lots of humor, but the humor makes it. Definitely worth the ticket price.

Good news for the Studio, and this movie option. Looks like Deadpool set some records, and made something like 135 million opening weekend. Projected 150 million if they include tomorrow, which is apparently a holiday (but... not really).

I know, right? Are they really counting this as a 3 day weekend? It's just one of those fake holidays where the post office is closed but you still have to go to work.

Even though Fox has the rights to mutants, they still have to keep the main continuity close to Marvel's. In short, yes that was one of the crashed Helicarriers from Winter Soldier.

Do they have to keep continuity? I just chalked it up to one of the infinite number of Easter Eggs.
