Deadpool: Average Guy Movie Review

Deadpool has arrived! After a very long wait and a very intense marketing campaign he is here and he has not disappointed! Normally I would write an opening paragraph to introduce the movie, show you the poster and get on with telling you what I thought but it all seems pointless. You know exactly what I'm going to say...it was awesome, in fact I've seen it twice inside a week!



The movie has already broken records:

  • Highest grossing February release
  • Highest grossing 'R' rated comic book movie
  • Biggest 'R' rated opening weekend
  • Biggest opening weekend for Twentieth Century Fox
  • Biggest opening of any previous X-Men movie
And it's on its way to becoming the highest grossing 'R' rated movie of all time. I know I've said it before; just because a movie makes lots of money doesn't mean it's a good movie but Deadpool really is! Tim Miller delivers a very funny movie with a good story, great actors who give great performances and considering the low budget a great look too. Granted the CGI is not the best but when you take into account its measly (compared to other superhero/comic book movies) $50 million budget and it's high entertainment value...you just don't care.



Ryan Reynolds finally gets to play the role he was born to play; "the merc with the mouth". It's a superhero movie crossed with a romantic comedy really, perfect for Valentines Day! Wade Wilson (Reynolds) is a mercenary who is willing to do bad things for good
reasons, he meets a girl called Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), falls in love and gets diagnosed with terminal cancer. When a mysterious character offers to cure Wade's cancer and in the process make him a superhero, Wade reluctantly accepts with the hopes of more time with Vanessa. Obviously there's a double cross and the procedure leaves Wade disfigured, to quote Weasel (T.J. Miller) "you look like an avocado fucked an older avocado". In order to get those responsible for what happened to him and rescue Vanessa, Wade adopts the alias "Deadpool" and teams up with (for budgetary reasons) only two of the X-Men. It's a recipe for a very funny, action packed movie during which you will never be bored.

"Cue the music"

The low budget and record breaking return has already guaranteed a sequel. Adding another bit of good news; Deadpool 2 has taken the spot reserved for the FanFourTastic sequel. Hopefully that FanFour-Trainwreck has been buried deeper than the lost Ark of the Covenant and will never be seen again!

  1. deadpool 2 review IMDB. I was able to see Deadpool 2 at an advance screening. Deadpool shook things up and delivered offbeat fun when diehard fans were looking for something new from the genre. I thought it was a surprisingly well-rounded movie that perfectly encapsulated its hero and lovingly poked fun at both itself and other genre tropes. It was among my favourite movies of 2016.

    When it comes to bringing the laughs, I think Deadpool 2 is just as funny as the original entry. There's even more meta jokes, the same gleefully dirty spirit carries over and some unexpected payoffs left me cackling. They build upon some of the previous memorable bits (I admire Ryan for being so willing to relentlessly skewer his filmography) without it going stale. Luckily, they didn't ruin the movie by putting all the funny bits in the trailer and there's plenty to enjoy. They weren't afraid to push the envelope with the humour and stick around past the finale for a truly epic bit that rolls during the credits.

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!


Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below:

Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible.


From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. Gr…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 6 | Home Before Dark

We're back on Apple TV+ this week, checking out one of Apple's new TV shows: Home Before Dark.

Ever since her Dad took her into the newsroom where he works, nine year old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) has been fascinated with journalism. So fascinated in fact, that she started her own newspaper - The Magic Hour Chronicle. But when Matthew Lisko (Jim Sturgess) - Hilde's Father - loses his job, the family is forced to move to Matthew's home town of Erie Harbor, a place he hasn't been back to in many years. There, a chance encounter leads Hilde to look into a thirty year cold case, one that involved the murder of a teenage boy and tore the town apart. Could that be the reason why Hilde's Dad left and never came back?
