Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on February 14, 2016

deadpoolDeadpool pretty much nailed what I’d want out of a Deadpool movie. Which isn’t to say it’s the greatest thing ever. I’m not actually a big fan of the character. But it was a good time, rapid-fire jokes, many of which landed, Morena Baccarin is still hot, and there are some good action sequences. This does officially qualify as the first widely-known Ryan Reynolds movie that I actually like (though Buried is still pretty good).

Parts were goofy. Colossus sounded like he did in the cartoon, and having a relatively low-budget CGI character with a weird accent give somewhat lengthy speeches is a bad idea. Negasonic Teenage Warhead is based on a comic character I don’t know (or at least don’t remember), but apparently she bears little resemblance to her comic counterpart. Which is dumb.
