SonofV liked it too, as did David Edelstein.

Quote:
EDELSTEIN: Those aren't the best one-liners in "Deadpool," but there are great ones. I'd estimate 50 percent hit, another 30 whiz by inoffensively and only 20 percent are stinkers - a hell of a good percentage given the sheer number of jokes. And Ryan Reynolds knows how to skip along the surface of the role, but, when he needs to, bring out the big dramatic guns. He's an underrated actor, although maybe not after this film. There's nothing new about "Deadpool's" brand of self-conscious humor. In some ways, it resembles the old Hope and Crosby "Road" pictures, with one obvious exception - the action is played straight. Actually, it's lavishly, gratuitously gory with a gleeful kick, and at one point, the hero is tortured so cruelly for so long, I had to look away. Typically, Wade turns to us and says something along the lines of, this is where it becomes a horror movie, which makes this a have your torture porn and make fun of it too film. It's like the movie has eyes on the audience. There's one in joke alluding to actors in another Marvel series that had me laughing for a full minute. It anticipated my own response by half a second and patted me on the back for being in sync. Wade has some surprisingly tender and smutty scenes with the love of his life, Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin, who's appeared in several superhero vehicles and was Brody's wife in the early seasons of "Homeland." Wade tells us she's not just another sex object pedaled by Hollywood with a smirk that acknowledges she is.
Ok, it's goin on the list.

Seems pretty innocuous stuff to me. I'd be marginally more worried about people having their heads blown off than a few off-colour references. But what do I know. I watched a lot of movies that were patently unsuitable for a 12 year old when I was that age :p

Ryan Reynolds surprises me. I saw him in Woman in Gold a couple nights ago, he was damn good.

He's really funny in interviews.

Having heard more about Deadpool, it sounds more than a little unsuitable for the 11 and 12 year olds. Language and sexual humour aside, some of the violence sounds pretty extreme. In his review, Mark Kermode said there's a scene in which the lead is tortured, where he found himself having to look away from the screen.

I genuinely want that to be good, but I'm scared. But I want it to be good. But...

I have been avoiding reading about the new Ghostbusters. I'm so hoping it's good. Because if it is not good a gigantic horde of butthurt manbabies are going to crow from the rooftops about how it was shit becoz of the wimmenz.

I just watched the promo and it looks kind of good!

Well that looks fine!

After last year's "Spy", which was just perfect, gotta trust Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy.
