DEADPOOL (2016) - Pre-Release - Page 10
I just find it cute that someone talking about how a films jokes are hit and miss describes it with jokes that all misses.

I'm really happy this is getting reviewed. Yeah, I was definitely defending the movie in this thread, but I was just as likely to believe that they would, somehow, mess this up. Or that even if they did do right by Deadpool--it'd still be nothing more than a barely decent one-off. Glad to know they got it right, and hopefully this is a win for Reynolds.
I can't think of the last article or review I read of his that didn't feature the words "white male" in it.
When Rob Liefield created him, he definitely was from the 90s Grimdark mold. It really wasn't till Joe Kelly's run in the late 90s that he became the "Merc with a mouth" we know today.
The best versions of the characters are the ones that manage to find some pathos beneath all the insanity: either that he actually does want to die and he was an outright war against Thanos for the love of death, or that beneath all the cracks and memes and chimichangas is damaged anti-hero that desperately wants to be accepted by his peers and actually does want to be a hero.
It's funny. You post has little context, yet I immediately knew which reviewer you were talking about.
I frequently like Devin's reviews, but it seems like he's not particularly on board with the character. He was a little too dismissive IMO.
I like Deadppol not because he makes jokes that '14 year old boys' find funny. I tend to like the fact that a maniac like Deadpool is thrown into comparatively normal Marvel U, and we get to see what happens.
That and it retains a sense of fun despite all the carnage going on.
Just wait until he looks in the mirror, he is going to be sooooooooo pissed.
That part started with Joe Kelly. Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza created the character as a more typical 90s-esque villain. Basically he was a knockoff of Deathstroke from the DC comics for the first few years of his existence. Then Kelly got ahold of Deadpool for the character's first ongoing comic and turned him into basically what he is today. Other writers have elaborated on it (for example, now he has TWO fourth-wall breaking caption boxes/voices in his head, not just the original "little yellow boxes" that Kelly created), but it was Kelly's run that made him a breakout character.
You guys should know by now, if it's not ejaculated by the throbbing cock of Kevin Feige, he immediately has a bias against any superhero property.
It doesn't quite work as a comedy and brings nothing new to the superhero genre. The rest is bad. There's definitely going to be a sequel and hopefully they can flesh it out and bring something orignal. They're on record promising the sequel to be a DEADPOOL AMD CABLE team up film.
Funnier than I expected and the action is good. And Negasonic really has the best X-Uniform yet to be put in a movie.
ETA AAAAND in the escalator behind me, a girl was already complaining that the "your boyfriend told you this was a superhero movie" line in the voice over narration was sexist because "it presupposes that only guys would be interested in this film". I thought people only talked like that online.
