Is that the sequel? Dead Pool is mighty entertaining in a pretty sick way... , posted on January 5, 2017 at 05:50:33

Haven't seen enough 2016 movies to decide which is the MOTY, or care.

...nah, but it did make some top 10 lists.

If anything is the film of the year it's LA LA Land.

Such a wise guy. Too silly to be a BP but it did give Leslie Uggams airplay. Reynolds wants Deadpool to be gay in the sequel. Hopefully that won't happen.

It is refreshingly non pc which is a plus. I thought the ending was a letdown.

Super Hero as Anti Hero.

A Super Hero revenge flick.

I get that the non PC tone and gratuitous gore goes against type. But if they really wanted to push the envelope, why the total lack of nudity and possible S&M images, which would have been plausible given the two characters ? Would have made it more real (at least within the genre) and even more un PC.

Yeah I liked the movie, but given the hype I expected something more over the top....like Superbad meets Super Hero.
