    Deadpool 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 12 Feb, 2016

    It’s not often that a superhero is foul-mouthed, crude, gore-loving, and sadistic – although it is occasional that they are gruesomely disfigured, egotistic, and mentally unstable – but 2016 is the year of the antihero, and the “Merc with a Mouth” just became one of our favourite superheroes of them all.

    Breaking the boundaries of your average blockbuster and the mould of the superhero films we have become accustomed to, Deadpool may be twisted and vulgar but it’s still a…

    Firstly, I don't understand why many of the reviews I have read go on about the huge emphasis on rape for. This is what put me off at…
