Sorry for the prolonged silence, but my husband and I wanted to take a step back from working towards opening a fandom store. We’ve had a couple of rocky months fraught with medical issues, but now that most of those have been resolved, we’re going to resume our original path of spreading fandom in all its glory.
For my first post back, I’d like to simply invite everyone who has yet to check out the newest (anti) superhero movie: DeadPool.
DeadPool: everyone’s favoritest anti-hero.
DeadPool: the role Ryan Reynold’s was born to play.
DeadPool: a morally ambiguous assassin turned, well, assassin.
DeadPool: a self-aware character that’s able to poke fun at not only himself but at pop-culture in general.
DeadPool: the best kind of love story.
DeadPool: the hero that wears an Adventure Time watch and is obsessed with Voltron.
DeadPool: the cosplay that will dominate this summer.
We went to see it opening day, and let me say, the theater was absolutely packed. The movie was everything that we had hoped for and more. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I will wait a few weeks to further review it, so all I really want to say is that seeing this in theaters is worth every penny. (I can’t wait for the sequel to come out – which they are already working on.)
Oh yeah, it’s not child-friendly. Like, at all. If I had young kids, this is not a movie I would take them to see. If I didn’t know DeadPool’s personality, I would probably think otherwise. But this movie is like none other. There’s explicit, gratuitous violence, partial nudity, and well, Stan Lee pops up – in a strip club. Need I say more?
The next movie that I really can’t wait to see: Suicide Squad. Now that’s going to be a ride.
As always, thanks for coming along on this journey. I can’t wait to see where it leads.
Last quick note: I’ll have the Upcoming Conventions updated soon. Sorry for the delay.
