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!

Fantastic 4..Fantastic. I do not think that means what you think it means..

While up all night doing some index maintenance for work (database stuff) I had the utter misfortune of watching the latest revision of The Fantastic 4.  I heard the reviews were pretty bad and so bad, in fact, that they cancelled the planned second installment…

Well..Holy crap.  What a lifeless,  unfunny,  unentertaining, pretty much unwatchable pile of shiite.  I mean..bad. Like not even “so bad its good” bad but just pathetic and cringeworthy bad.  Thankfully I had other stuff to do while it was playing or I’d be really annoyed at myself for completely wasting those precious minutes of my life.

Do yourself a favor.. Don’t watch it.  Not one second of it. You’ll thank me.

TL;DR – Zero stars out of 5
