So Stitched Up creator John Andersen and I headed to a matinee showing of Deadpool today and I don’t remember the last time I had this much fun watching a movie. In every movie I’ve seen recently, there is at least one moment or sequence where we are waiting for something exciting or noteworthy to happen. This is not the case, Ryan Reynolds is fucking gold. The action is awesome and raw and Reynolds is the constantly wise-cracking, fourth-wall-breaking, hard-R embracing superhero we’ve all been waiting for.
This movie was so self-aware, so fun, and I didn’t want it to ever end, but when it did end, I felt so satisfied. I couldn’t have asked for anything more, it won’t get nominated for any academy wards but it doesn’t have to cause for what it is, it is amazing, it is perfection. If you’re looking for a fun, kick-ass time at the movies where you’ll laugh your ass off for two hours, go see Deadpool, I implore you. I would write more but I don’t wanna give anything away.
P.S. For those of you worrying that the funniest moments are in the trailer, they aren’t, cause 85% of the jokes are NSFW and wouldn’t be allowed in a trailer anyway.
