Everyone should go see Deadpool. It is honestly the most fun I have had in quite a long while.

Yeah I went to see Deadpool. It was pretty fun, agreed. Opening scenes were brilliant, at least up until the origin story started. It definitely suffered from the origin story stuff slowing down the pacing, and the villains were kind of really really mediocre (especially given the potential villains deadpool COULD have been going up against) but the movie still more or less delivered what it promised, which was dirty humor and asskicking. Worth the ten bucks for the ticket, not worth the concession stand trap, holy crumpets popcorn is expensive. (lol i am theater newb)

I'm hyped for the sequel, in any case. With the origin stuff out of the way and Deadpool firmly established as a character, there will be more time to let Deadpool actually do his thing. Plus, you-know-who. Yeah.

Of course, I then went and watched Daredevil episodes 5 and 6, which was an interesting contrast. Ironically, I think Deadpool was the more heroic of the two heroes- the fact that the violence in Deadpool is over the top for the sake of humor (... for the most part), while Daredevil puts a lot of effort into showing the brutality of the fights. I don't know that much about Daredevil, but I've always thought of him as one of the more... hero-y heroes, but they are definitely giving him the Dark Knight treatment in this show. So far, at least. Excellent stuff, though. It's a good time to be a marvel fan.

That, and watching Euros squirm.

I for one was totally okay with having a mediocre villain. Not every superhero movie needs to be about saving the planet/solar system/galaxy/plane of existence/whatever.
