Movie of the Week: Deadpool
Deadpool is the story of Wade Wilson’s post special forces life. When diagnosed with terminal cancer, Wilson tries an experimental treatment that awakes his latent mutant genes.
Fun fact: not only does this film star our very own Canadian @vancityreynolds
, playing a Canadian superhero, but it was also filmed in his home town of Vancouver! Oh Canada!
In classic Stan Lee style, his cameo in this flick is one of our favourites with him emceeing at a strip club, who doesn’t love that? We love this one because not only will it make you laugh, but it is a bit more relatable than your stereotypical superhero movie, and Deadpool is definitely not what you expect him to be. We’re giving this flick a movie mood of laugh until you cry, perfect for a date night in when you can’t agree on a chick flick or action movie. Bonus points for this one as well as it has a sequel and is perfectly binge worthy for your weekend marathon.
