"The Name is Pool. Dead Pool."

I finally went to see "Deadpool".

The snarkiness starts with the opening credits, with the actors described by their role than their name. The director is describes as "Some Overpaid Tool".

Although Deadpool is part of the X-Men universe, this isn't your average superhereo movie. Not even close.

He's got a real fondness for Desert Eagles. But shit, he can't keep track of his guns; he keeps leaving his bag of guns somewhere.

The movie breaks the "fourth wall" repeatedly, but, to my opinion, to excess. Fine. This movie is full of excess, which is why this one X-Men movie earned an R rating. How often do you hear of mutants discussing raunchy sex and jerking off?

I didn't know that there was a "Ferris Bueller" bit at the very end. Dammit.

Anyway, if you're hankering for an unconventional mutant movie, this may be one for you.

Now there's a series coming out about a real-life L.A. cop whose real name is Hieronymus Bosch...

Nope, fiction, Deadstick. The "Harry Bosch" novels have been (and still are being) written by Michael Connelly.

OK, my bad, but that's good to hear.
