Arguably, one of my favorite movies of all time. I only say this because no other movie has made me laugh from beginning to the end like this one has. I think I almost got a hernia. My sides were in orbit.

Thoughts and opinions on the movie?

I just got back from watching it. I'll give my thoughts in the next post, but one thing:

Am I crazy or does the guy that played Ajax, Ed Skrein, look like an older version of Nicholas Hoult?

I want to preface this by saying, while I've always known about Deadpool, I'm not really what you'd consider a "fan" of his.

First, the comedy was perfect. A lot of the meta-gags were great, but the highlight was the physical comedy. If I had to choose a standout scene, it'd be when Deadpool breaks both has hands and one leg trying to attack Colossus.

The story, though, was a basic as you can get, which I don't consider a bad thing, but I've seen it cited as a negative by critics.

A little sad the blind woman didn't get more screen time. The Taxi driver and Bob were also great moments.

Take "Maybe" out of that. Do it. You will not be disappointed, in the slightest. I take it you're into comics?

Anything positive you've heard about it, believe it. Being a big fan of Wade definitely adds to the moments. It's the best comic book adaptation yet.

Me and my mates are still debating Star Wars (I hated it), but we'll watch it tomorrow so no spoilers.

Star Wars was just a mediocre movie to me. It had a chance to be great and squandered it.

I know the feeling, mate. I expected more plot from J.J not some hype train trailer he passed of as a movie. I expected saber scenes to blow the prequals away, not a noob besting a sith's apprentice in a lame Darth Vader vs Obi Wan type battle, I expected a lore filled movie not a movie whose plot had so many holes it was like a pincushion. I expected something more, I expected Star Wars the movie that hyped the masses, that excited generations, I expected a child's vision of story, CGI, plot and villians to be made into a beutiful reality by a masterful director. It could've been a master piece, a true movie wonder. But whatever I hear Deadpool is good.

My wife agreed to see the movie with me because of Ryan Reynolds. Then she asked how often he might have his mask off. I told her probably not often because he's deformed. Now she doesn't want to see it lol

Throughout the movie they flashback to Wade's past to explain the story and I might add it is done very well. I never felt like the flashbacks, as numerous and long as they are, ever hindered the movie. So there's plenty of non-deformed Ryan Reynolds in there. Tell her not to worry anyways, deformed Ryan will grow on her. And besides, it's a love story.

Bumping. I might post a detailed review of the movie and I'd also like others to post what they think.
