Did anybody see this?

 

I did, had a great time.  So funny, so perfect a portrayal.  Ryan Reynolds worked 10 years to get this movie made the way he wanted it to be and he succeeded.  I won't spoil it beyond that, just recommend it for anyone wanting to see a violent, raunchy movie with the level of sarcasm we all seem to enjoy on this board.

The significant other and I went to see it. Both enjoyed it.
(I had to explain some of the references to her).
I was especially a fan of the inclusion of Negasonic Teenage Warhead (with Cannonball's powers, to be fair).  For those unfamiliar, she came out of X-Men during the run of Grant Morrison, everyone's favorite crazy Scottish uncle.

Grant reckons he is a magician in the Aleister Crowley sense.

I saw it knowing nothing about it except the name, Deadpool. It was funny as hell and quite entertaining. NOT FOR KIDS. I saw at least 2 kids in the 10 year old range. Fucking awful parents/grandparents.

They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

I've seen it twice..once with my husband, then the next weekend with my son whose almost 14.  I promised him (my son) that he could see it if it wasn't too objectionable the first time I saw it.  I deemed none of it too much for his sensibilities, and he was fine.  We all thought it was hilarious!  Yeah, 10 is too young.  Still, a lot of kids really want to see this one, because of the whole superhero mania.  So use a little discretion people...I'd say 12 and unders should just sit this one out.  Little kids shouldn't be seeing this at all (and I saw quite a few both times)...it's not at all like the other superhero movies.

Knowing the history of Deadpool, it's nice that not only did they transfer the character to the big screen, but they did a good job of adapting his characterization to a new medium. Rob Liefeld should be pleased.

Yes, probably the right move.  Where I went there were little ones who giggled like schoolchildren whenever a four letter word was uttered.

So in other words, they giggled like themselves. ;)

I'm a huge Deadpool since the 90's. I was really glad to see they finally did Deadpool right in a film. I hated what they did to him in X-Men Origins - Wolverine.

Seen on Twitter recently:

 

Batman was Daredevil.

Captain America was The Human Torch.

Deadpool was Green Lantern.

And yet, everyone just acts as if nothing is strange...

Like I said, crazy Scottish uncle.

He's written some of the best DC and Marvel comics runs I've ever read, though. Especially his Batman stuff for DC, as well as his run on All-Star Superman.

Named after a Monster Magnet song apparently.

Given Grant Morrison's proclivities, I wouldn't be surprised.

 

 

Grant reckons he is a magician in the Aleister Crowley sense.

I mean, he lives in a castle with his fetsih-model wife, and consumes a lot of psychotropic drugs, so life is magical for him.

I mean, he has written a textbook on how to be a sorceror.  You can download it from his site.  When The Invisibles looked like it was going to be cancelled, he created a symbol and told readers to wank while thinking about it.  Sales picked up immediately.  (I think that was more due to getting a better artist, moving the action from the UK to the US and putting the female lead in bondage gear, but there you go.)
