post #451 of 488
Deadpool out. I feel like his performance in that Street Fighter movie has been sadly forgotten.

Truly a wordsmith, our fleed.

Yeah, he had me worried with that subpar Jessica Biel pun last page, but really turned it around here. Faith restored.

The reviews look pretty positive so far.
post #459 of 488
Yes I'm kind of surprised. It looks likes something I'll enjoy based on what it's going for,but I was sure it would get bad reviews.
post #460 of 488

Just read a review calling it, "the world's most violent and vulgar Bugs Bunny cartoon..."  In other words, a movie I'm definitely seeing.

post #461 of 488

So if this movie is a success, what other weird comic properties will we suddenly be flooded with as movies? Spider-Ham? Squirrel Girl? Hellcow?

post #462 of 488
We're probably not all that far from Squirrel Girl..

Can't do Infinity War without her.

Started reading a review and closed it down when the reviewer started to equate humor levels with race. Apparently they never seen a Wayan brothers film.
post #466 of 488
Huh?
post #467 of 488
Some reason i clicked on Devins review and he just can't seem to realize not write everything down that pops into his head. Probably why the review starts going "grilled cheese.... Joss Whedon bear hug...." half way through.

I just find it cute that someone talking about how a films jokes are hit and miss describes it with jokes that all misses.

Oh I thought you were talking about the review I linked.

Sounds exactly like what I thought it would be.

Jacknife, you just gotta let the Chimichangas in.

 

Deadpool is love. Deadpool is life!

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.

When it comes to Deadpool, was he always breaking the 4th wall and the comics filled with more adult humor, or was that a change made later in his history?

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.

post #483 of 488
His conflicted feelings over DAREDEVIL was wonderful. On the one hand, he wants to support MCU unconditionally but on the other wants to stick to his anti-grimdark stance he's made himself known for.
post #484 of 488
Saw this last night and it's exactly what you'd expect. There's a shit ton of CGI and it's all terrible and weightless, especially Colossus. It reminded me of the CGI in ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, so yikes.

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.

How are the Post Credit Scenes?

Just ended here. Fun film, but the humourless mid section REALLY sags.

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.
