Geekery – My Obligatory Deadpool Review (Minor Spoilers)

Sunday, February 14th, was Valentine’s day. Like so many couples, my wife and I went out to celebrate our love for one another. Now, we love each other every day of the year, but Valentine’s is a great way to celebrate it and show our appreciation for one another.

And get away from the kids for five long hours. It was incredible. You don’t even know!

That night we went out and did the most romantic thing we could think of – go see the Deadpool movie.

Ryan Reynolds did not disappoint.

From the very beginning, blood-soaked hilarity ensued. Even the credits at the beginning of the movie were well crafted for Deadpool.

The humor is crude. There is nudity. At one point Wade celebrates “Women Empowerment Day” with his girlfriend, and she is the man, if you get my drift. The movie is definitely not for kids – and if you did take your kid, you are most likely going to have a week’s worth of conversations on the “birds and the bees” and why Wade, and not his girlfriend, was on all fours at one point.

There are also a slew of jokes pertaining to Ryan Reynolds’ previous role as a poorly done Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, as well as other roles done by Reynolds, such as Green Lantern. There are even a few jokes at the expense of the studio, and their lack of support. There are probably some jokes I missed.

And, of course, the movie wraps up with a happy ending. The bad guy dies. Deadpool gets the girl. There’s a “pull out” joke.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, stay until the credits are over. That’s all I’ll say about that.

Ryan Reynolds went on Facebook to thank the fans for supporting the creation of the Deadpool movie. Reynolds may be an actor, but he’s also a pretty cool human being. At one point, Reynolds went dressed up as Deadpool to see a kid with cancer who is a fan of his. Ryan knows that it was his fans, and the fans of Deadpool, that made the movie happen and he has been openly thankful and appreciative of that support. Say what you will about Ryan Reynolds, he’s one of the real life good guys in my book.

If you have seen Deadpool, I hope you enjoyed it at least as much as I did. If you haven’t, take your Mister/Misses/adult-aged-family and go see it. It will leave you with a warm, tingly feeling…or that may be you losing feeling in your stomach from laughing too hard.

Don’t pass out.

Until next time!…
