    You can tell what you're getting into from the preview, but it was entertaining enough -- plus Blake Lively is nice to look at (whoo, 2nd mention in as many posts).

Not sure whether to try to get my girlfriend to see Deadpool or find time on my own to go... thoughts?
    As long as your girlfriend doesn't have super-delicate sensibilities, I think she'd like it. It's funny and even touching in parts. A bit graphic, but not on a Tarantino level or anything.

    I used to love John Carpenter movies when I was a kid.

    I feel like they get better with age. Pick up on stuff you don't grasp as a kid.

    Creed was better than I expected but I am a suckered for sports movies. Also horror movies so The Boy was fun. The wife and I watched Straight Outta Compton finally. I am a white kid from the burbs that grew up on hip hop, nwa particularly, and it was a good movie for me.

    I watched it this weekend and really enjoyed it. There were some differences in the characters' backgrounds/motivations, but it was largely a Rocky remake. Still, good stuff.

    Same deal (white kid from the suburbs), although i didn't grow up on hip hop. I still liked it and found it borderline educational. I had no idea how intertwined all of the people were in that scene. Also, I got a slight sense of joy every time I actually recognized one of the songs.

    not to geek out for a second but that was a pivotal time for hip hop and that group of people were key to turning the corner and making it a real business instead of just kids making beats in their bedroom. And I used to do my chores while listening to NWA on my walkman. First time I heard Eazy E solo album was on a boy scout camping trip.

    Love and Mercy. Anyone who is interested in the Beach Boys and/or mental illness should give this movie a watch. Very well done.
