Day 343: Deadpool (February, 15)

Oh, the wonders of not being politically correct (and doing great just because of that).

This was so much fun. Even in a packed movie theater, which I hate, with people asking if we’re seated on their chair, and discussing how to find their place with the cel's light on our eyes, I was able to immediately get into Deadpool at the first scene. Thank you, Ryan Reynolds, for being persistent in bringing this controversial and amazing character to the big screen.

This movie’s pace is so good. The usual formula is inverted here, and we’re first see the super anti-hero already in action before knowing how he got there. Actually, we even forget how we got there ourselves with such a crazy character with crazy antics in an incredibly well constructed script and clever (funy, dirty, ironic) dialogues. There’s no way not to love it.

And finally Morena Baccarin had a role worthy of her. She is so interesting, I was happy to see her as Vanessa. She and Reynolds are simply perfect together.

Do you know that bit about correctness just above? The incredible thing is that through such a sarcastic banter, it is possible to do things extremely right. That’s what happens here, while we have so much fun that my face was even hurting at the end (sure Deadpool would have something to say about it).

At last, I was amazed by all those pop culture’s references. Just amazing and a part of what brings this Marvel superhero so near us. The last one, after the ending credits (Marvel movies are the only ones that make people stay on their seats nowadays), is great. And I was happy to identify right away. I can’t wait for the next (confirmed) one and the other sequels with Deadpool. Great expectations on the making, I'm afraid to say.

An afterthought: of course there's has been a big controversy about this movie. Yesterday I was reading some silly stuff about how more then the half of people that is praising how good the movie is never have heard about this character before. Seriously? When should that be a problem? It was the same regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a lot of posts in social media ironically saying that how cute it was that now (only now, ok?) everybody was becoming a huge fan of Star Wars. My mind is a pretty weird place, but it never ceases to scare me how crazy and incoherent some of this comments can be.
