Three sentence movie reviews: Deadpool
We flipped a coin to see which movie we were going to see and Matt won, so we took in this “romantic comedy” on Valentine’s Day.* Members of the male species seem to really, really like this movie finding it gaspingly funny and wonderfully raunchy. I found it to be amusing and raunchy and perhaps more proof that I’ve hit my superhero movie quota.**
Cost: $5.10 (somehow the special $5 price has added ten cents to it)
Where watched: Regal City Center Stadium 12 with Matt
*My choice: Brooklyn.
**Which is a little worrisome. What if I don’t like the next Thor movie? Or the next Avengers movie?
There were a number of posters to choose from. I went with the faux-romantic comedy one, because that’s how Matt was selling it. But I think the one below is my favorite.

Maybe it was because it was being “sold to you” as a rom-com. I find that when you get a notion in your head about what a movie is going to be like, that if it doesn’t fall in those lines, the viewing is spoiled. Example: Patrick told me that “Braveheart” was a love story. Imagine my dismay when the girl dies within 20 minutes. Shows up an hour later. And shows up another hour later. Not a love story. Did not like it. Will never watch it again. And I never believe his summations about movies.
I knew it wasn’t a romantic comedy. I’d seen the previews. The original previews, not the “cut for Valentine’s Day previews.” Matt was just being funny. 🙂
I like your poster choice better lol
This is on our list to see. Is it NFS? Seems like perhaps so?
Oh my gosh so TNFS! So violent! So dirty! Torture! All sorts of NFS things.
I’m with you. My expectations were low going in. While I was entertained, I didn’t think it was amazing. I would probably never watch it again. Also, I too think I may have hit a wall in regards to superhero movies. I may skip some of the next ones. Most definitely not going to see Batman vs. Superman, although I never intended to even before the bad reviews started dropping.
Paraphrasing my favorite part of a B v. S review: “Ben Affleck starts out the movie as sleepy and ends it by sleepwalking.”
