Excuse me, please, but the Hunger Games has NOTHING to do with Deadpool. There is a big difference between a dark commentary on the depravity of man and a film that satirizes evil, calling it good. Remember what I said about dark comedy movies? That was actually the standard I used for the lowest of the low.
Deadpool does teach a moral lesson - that no matter how dark your past is or how ugly you look, you can still be loved. But you don't have to watch such a sick movie to get that message! Iron Man 3 has the same message, and that is much better than Deadpool! Even The Mentalist is better than Deadpool! And that's just the bottom rung - Ant-Man, The Lego Batman Movie, and even the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe all have that theme, for crying out loud. If you give me a choice between crude jokes or a highly majestic and intelligent lion, I'm going with Aslan. FOR NARNIA!!!
In fact, Deadpool is so bad that I don't even want to post the Plugged In Review of Deadpool because of how much bad stuff is mentioned in said review. Instead, I shall just quote the end of it:
There's no need to straight-up ingest tons of evil to get good because the Bible tells us what good is. And there is a huge difference between evaluating evil and taking a bath in a dead...pool...of it.
Case made, point black. And for the record, I have not seen Deadpool. I have better things to do with my life...like debate with myself about whether to go see the Justice League movie after Plugged In said it wasn't great artistically. Tsk.
Please do not interpret this post as a statement that all comedy involving evil is wrong - the fast counterexample to that is all of those ridiculous Bibleman villain songs that show how stupid evil is compared to the intelligence of siding with the ominipotent God.
But if satire involving evil is to be accepted, it must show that evil is stupid, that evil is the wrong choice, and the absurdity of whatever lie the devil is feeding you this week. The devil cannot bear scorn, after all - thanks Martin Luther. The gulf between the Screwtape Letters and Deadpool is great. Even Lucy qualifies as this - a ridiculous satire of evolutionary thinking. (Whether or not the filmmakers who made the movie intended it as a negative satire of evolutionary thinking is another question. In any case, it is better than Deadpool.)
Also, please do not interpret my list I rattled off as an implicit endorsement of any of those film works - all of them have content concerns. Except Narnia, Bibleman, and the Screwtape Letters, obviously.
