2016 can finally be put to bed for me. I can now focus on the 2017 movies… Which is in January… The literal graveyard of movies where shitty horror movies and poorly conceived Oscar bait dwell… OH GOD HELP ME! But… Before I wade waist deep in the cesspool that is January movies, I do want to have one last fond memory of movies that made me smile in 2016.

You either love the guy and the type of in your face insane humor that he brings… Or you find it unbearably annoying and almost unthinkable to even watch.

I am not the biggest Deadpool fan personally though I can respect the humor that he brings and I can easily see why he is so popular. It is just one of those things where, it really isn’t for me and if it is for me then I have to be in the right frame of mind to deal with it.
