Lady Ronn and I, not me and Lady Ronn, never me and Lady Ronn, went and saw Deadpool last night. She really liked it, I thought it was good. So where would I rank it, oh say, on the Netflix scale. Say 1 star to 5 stars.
- One Star: Hated It
- Two Stars: Didn’t Like It
- Three Stars: Liked It
- Four Stars: Really Liked It
- Five Stars: Loved It
The problem with this system is it lacks a little nuance, but it is what it is and we have to use it. I’m going to be so bummed when Netflix changes to something more detailed than this. I might have to put more thought into these things. Which I do not want to do.
So on this scale Lady Ronn would probably give Deadpool four or maybe even five stars. It ain’t that good. It’s amusing, sure. I laughed out loud, briefly, once. What can I say, the floppy hands were funny to me. The story seemed a little lacking, but not to the point of being a detriment to the film. They broke the fourth wall, they swore, there was sex and nudity, lots of violence, they was lots of off-color humor, so I guess they did all the Deadpool stuff… I’ve never even looked at a Deadpool comic, so I don’t know, I’m just assuming they hit all the points.
Like I said it was amusing. It was entertaining. I didn’t feel like I’d thrown away twenty bucks going to see it. The actors were good. The characters were good. Except the great big CGI robot-man. Don’t get me wrong I’m all about the hero stuff, but he got on my nerves and I didn’t think the CGI looked that great.
I liked it. I did not really like it. I would not pay to see it a second time. So, three stars. It did nothing to piss me off and make me not like it. I’ll call it a good movie.
