Larry & I went and saw Deadpool yesterday – I’ve been entertained by the many many advertisements for it as it was very self-deprecating and had lots of fourth-wall breaking. Plus, it was boldly R-Rated and you could tell they had to censor a lot to make the ads. And yeah…after seeing it, definitely a well-deserved R. But it was awesome. Ryan Reynolds of course was hot (well, up to a certain point, obvs) and he owns the fucking role of Deadpool/Wade Wilson. The character is definitely a douchebag, but one who you have to give some respect to. He can kick serious ass while cracking jokes also while listening to Salt N Pepa’s “Shoop” – how can you not love that? If you saw the box office tally for this weekend, many many MANY people were also very entertained by Deadpool – to the tune of $150MM…that’s the biggest R-rated weekend ever. It might signal to studios that the R rating isn’t a hindrance to making money; you just have to make an entertaining R and people will come. People will still bring their way-too-young children to the movies – don’t you worry!
Other than that, my updates have been a little sporadic this week. Can’t say much has happened or that I’ve been hiding exciting things from the site. Fallout 4 has been occupying my time and I’m definitely liking the game – STILL haven’t made it to Boston yet. I played and finished Firewatch too, which was a nice little game with a lot of humor and visual style. We’ve also been able to keep doing our weekly Griffith Park run – today was no exception and I’m beat. Oof. Alright, I think I’m done for now. Time to drink some soda and get prepped for the Grammy’s. And oh yeah, Happy Valentine’s Day!
