I can definitely think of one... ;)

Video game websites are just as bad with rabid fanboys defending inanimate objects from hurtful feelings. Facebook is rough lately too due to politics bullshit.

I'll add more when I have the time, but at it's core, it's an horror anthology that is connected very cleverly. Each one is different but connected and I personally think it was amazing.

It's like something we would do.

I've read a few wrestling articles recently and realized I'm super worn out by the fans of wrestling. The comment threads on any given wrestling website or message board is literally a trainwreck of human garbage, punctuated by heavy doses of racism and general idiocy. The only other genre websites I ever read are horror film websites, and that doesn't seem to attract anywhere close to the level of dumbasses that seem to watch the same pseudo sport that I enjoy.

To the comic/sci fi/whatever fans on this site, are there other "nerd friendly" things out there that seem to attract so much open-ended venom from the fans?

Yeah, I was glad they basically made it a crazy Warner Bros. cartoon brought to life. Super violent, tons of sex, and the kind of manic energy that the character seemed to need. Just shy of Crank 2 in the wildness department, but definitely on par with the first Crank.

I literally know nothing about the character, was this on par with his portrayal in the comics?

From Boxofficemojo.com

Blowing away even the most lofty of expectations, Deadpool decimated the Valentine's and President's Day weekend box office in record-breaking fashion with an estimated $135 million three-day weekend. As for its incoming competition, How to be Single performed mostly as expected while fifteen years proved too long to wait to release Zoolander 2.

Rewriting the box office record books, Deadpool broke Fifty Shades of Grey's previous February opening weekend record by nearly $45 million based on estimates and that's just the start. The largest opening for an R-rated film was previously $91.7 million, set by The Matrix Reloaded in 2003. That's been destroyed. The largest opening weekend for an R-rated comic book adaptation was previously set by 300 with $70.8 million. Bye, bye.

This is even the largest opening weekend ever for 20th Century Fox, beating a record of $108.4 million previously held by Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Though, to be fair, Revenge of the Sith did open on a Thursday where it brought in $50 million so it's not a complete apples-to-apples comparison, but it does bring us to Deadpool's expected four-day run.

Right now Fox is estimating a $150 million four-day weekend while rival studios go as high as $156 million. In just its first two days Deadpool nearly broke the previous President's Day weekend record of $93 million set by Fifty Shades of Grey, so it already holds the overall record, now it's only a matter of how much will it end up making once Monday's official totals are revealed.

This is also the largest opening for star Ryan Reynolds, a distinction previously held by X-Men Origins: Wolverine at $85 million. More exciting, however, may be the fact this is the largest opening weekend for a first-time director. Deadpool was directed by Tim Miller whose previous credits include a pair of short films along with serving as a visual effects guru for video games including "Mass Effect 2" and "Star Wars: The Old Republic". The previous record holder was Chris Miller, director of Shrek the Third, which opened with $121.6 million back in 2007. As far as live action films are concerned, Robert Stromberg held the previous record with the $69.4 million opening for Maleficent.

The weekend is also coming up roses for Deadpool overseas as the film brought in a whopping $125 million from 61 international markets. This is the third highest grossing international opening for Fox ever. Among the accolades, the film scored the largest industry opening in Russia with $12.4 million as well as the largest Fox opening in 13 other markets including Australia ($10m); Taiwan ($8.25m); Brazil ($5.9m); Hong Kong ($3.8m); and Malaysia ($2.9m). Overall we're looking at a $260.1 million worldwide debut for the "Merc with a Mouth".

A remake 14 years after the original. What the fuck were they thinking? Almost a beat for beat remake right down to 'PANCAKES!!!' Although this this time, they added some asshole with an AR-15 and lots of references to specific video games and WEED. Everyone dies exactly the same way they did in the beginning, only we've seen it all before, and it was fresh and new that time.

Holy fuck. We need to get together and watch this. It's the best horror film I've seen in a long time and even inspired me with an idea of my own.

A horror anthology movie of sorts, it starts at insane and accelerates to WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK. It's great.

5 WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT THING!?! out of 5
