I enjoyed it as well. I missed perhaps 75% of the humor because it was too fast and often subtle. Makes we want to rent it now. I rarely laugh out loud in theaters, but I couldn't help it with this one.

Was not impressed that several parents brought their 8,9,10 yr olds. Definitely NOT a movie for that age group. Way too graphic and sexually explicit. Someone actually yelled out "Hey, thanks for bringing your young kids" at the end of the film. Clearly not impressed. One the bright side, now those kids know how to masturbate and know what soft core porn looks like, long before they reach puberty. Wonder if they thanked their moms for bringing them and for not researching the film beforehand. :roll:
Such potential!

There were a few people that brought really young kids. Like 6 or 7. Yeah, they didn't stay long.

Had the same (type) parents with their kids in the theater for Watchman.

Perfect for your 6 year old.

I don't care if parents bring their kids to an R rated movie. That's their call.

What I do mind is parents bringing their kids to an R rated movie and then complaining about the sex/violence/gore/whatever. The R rating should have been a big fucking clue that the movie was going to have R rated content.

We brought our 13 year old to the movie, and it was a bit more explicit than I would have liked, but this isn't the first time he's seen boobies in a movie, and the humor in the movie is the embodiment of a horny teenager. So, I knew what I was getting into, for the most part.

...and yeah, I enjoyed the fuck out of the movie, so did he.

I just had a thought: "Deadpool" is this decade's "Airplane!"

I mean, I was going to complain about the very basic superhero plot, but then I realized you need that foundation for the humor, because this movie is a comedy, first and foremost.

So you need a basic plot structure that hits all the key elements of a superhero movie - a plot the audience will recognize and be able to follow, then you fill in between with jokes. Much like "Airplane!" did with a disaster movie.

I think I read somewhere that the reason the "smart" parody died in favor of fart jokes and stereotype snark lines, is that the blockbusters now self-parody so effectively that a "smart" parody would be redundant.

Should have seen it coming with Batman Forever's "Holy Rusted Metal!" -- a clumsy first attempt at this very thing.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I consider "superhero" movies to be of the genre in which either their origin is told and/or they overcome and even more powerful villian somehow.

Captain America: Winter Soldier was a spy film.

Deadpool was a revenge film (a funny one).

I thought about it vs airplane. Airplane made fun of many Hollywood tropes/cliches. Deadpool made fun of the studios and the process itself. It went beyond making a joke of the cliches in writing.

I saw it a second time. The errors in cinematography are more stark watching a second time. The director is no Tarantino behind the lens.

It was extremely re-watchable however. The movie actually did have a heart.

Deadpool says it is a love story. I said it was a revenge film. It is both.

If the two romantic leads had lacked chemistry, I think it would have been a crass-comedy-revenge flick.

Pacific Rim was one of the worst cases of zero chemistry love subplot (as well as the one of the worst St. Crispin's Day speeches I can remember).

You can write the dialog, you can hire capable actors, and you can shoot 2000 takes. Good chemistry is hard to fake.

Excellent Deadpool film.

I was really hoping they would put in a Wolverine cameo after the credits, but that would make it a perfect film and who wants that.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
