6. Deadpool

‘Deadpool’ is open for anyone to come and enjoy. It requires little to no outside knowledge of the X-Men franchise, though it may entice you to watch those if you haven't. The only misfortune that comes from seeing this film is knowing that you won't find any other superhero film like it to fill the void. You'll have to buy another ticket in order to feel that same, R-rated escapism. ‘Deadpool’ is truly a gift to the superhero era we live in, a film that recognises its genre and blasts it, but also has a blast living in it too.
