Movie Review: Deadpool

 

 

Deadpool

Due to the kindness and generosity of a sister-in-law who loves newborns,  my wife and I got the opportunity to sneak out last week and finally see Deadpool.  It was totally worth the wait.  I’ve always thought Ryan Renolds the perfect casting choice to play DP and it was spot on.  The sarcastic tone,  the perfect delivery and just the right amount of cocky completely nailed the big screen version of Deadpool.  Everyone was just right in the film.. with maybe the exception of Gina Carano who I just can’t buy in any role, even just playing herself.  Colossus was fantastic so congrats to those five guys.

This was the standard origin story movie which is usually just ok, but this really knocked it out of the park and I’m beyond excited to hear that the sequel is already in the works.

 

TL:DR – 4.5 out of 5 Chimichangas!

Staked nailed it..

I just finished Staked by Kevin Hearne and it did not disappoint. Atticus and Oberon were both back in fine form.  Owen was still as lovable as ever and Granuaile was a little starry eyed but still kicked ass when she needed to get things done.  I really do love the mythology entwined in this series and Hearne does an awesome job tying it all together. If you’re looking for an entertaining and fun series you can do a lot worse than the Iron Druid Chronicles.  Now I have to wait for the next one.. Boo..

And remember…Never be Nigel in Toronto…
