    Deadpool 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 29 May, 2016

    A lot of fun, though in the end it was pretty light on actual story and feels like it missed a chance to put a different spin on the ol' superhero story.

    Wow, I really didn't expect this film to be so B-grade.

    A beautifully crafted film, with consideration in every shot and a kick-ass soundtrack. Winding Refn certainly earned his Best Director award at Cannes this year, helped greatly by the outstanding performances of Gosling and Mulligan. I'll definitely need to see this again, and while I'm not much a fan of ultra-violence I couldn't imagine it working any other way in this film.

    BWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMP!

    So epic it hurts. I'm willing to gloss over the few plot questions it leaves and just be enveloped by the killer combo of Nolan & Zimmer (whose soundtrack, incidentally, makes *everything* feel epic if you put it on loud enough).
