I’m going to go against popular opinion on this one. I don’t consider ‘Deadpool’ a comic book superhero movie. I consider ‘Deadpool’ a comic book movie with superheroes in it. I also tend to think of the character of Deadpool as more of a rogue who does heroic things from time to time. I loved the movie and the fact that it made fun of the last attempt to put Wade Wilson on the big screen. THAT character was NOT Deadpool. I barely know anything about Deadpool and I know that THAT travesty was not Deadpool. THIS … THIS movie… Read more »

Nothing of what you said is an unpopular opinion.

Then apparently I’ve been visiting the wrong forums.

Interesting viewpoint. Because the phrase is not “Comic book Superhero movie” the phrase is “comic book movie.”

I don’t think I’ve been saying it wrong all this time but I’m willing to change if it’s more accurate these days. “Comic book movie WITH superheroes” sounds quite accurate for ‘Deadpool’.

Definitely get it even since Deadpool in the trailer slices a man in half and even points it out.

It’s not a unpopular opinion when everyone has the same opinion and the movie itself points out that Deadpool is not a super hero multiple times.

Good to know. I’m not a huge Deadpool fan and, rather obviously, all of that didn’t stick in my long term memory.

Sounds like a terrible experience going to the cinemas in the US of A if that kind of audience you describe is the normal one.

Chaos15

Nah. When the audience is like that is when it is fun to go to cinemas.

I saw this movie on Friday with my girlfriend after work and we loved it. It did feel a bit smaller in scope in comparison to recent Marvel movies but that was a good thing. I felt that Deadpool didn’t emphasize too much one thing and balanced out the comedy, characterization, and the action. I also love how this movie made fun of itself and so many of the obvious budget cuts like only affording 2 of the Xmen and making fun of Ryan Reynolds within the movie as well. You can tell Ryan Reynolds had such a blast making… Read more »

Bob is a loser Hydra mook who became a good friend of Deadpool in the comics. But the Fox X-Men movies don’t own the rights to Hydra, so mentioning him was all they could do.

I think what they did in the movie counts more than “mentioning him”

I actually didn’t like this movie as a whole. While there were a select few moments that made a laugh a lot, all in all I feel that this movie really resorted to cheap and easy humor and it didn’t feel as smart as it clearly thought itself to be. I get that this was a fan movie so in that regard I have a certain amount of respect for it, but even so I just didn’t care for most of it.

Sounds like Deadpool to me.

I think Ryan Renolds personally producing this film was a saving grace. It’s pretty obvious that Fox was playing it as safe as they could considering how standard and generic the story and even some of the characters are. Ryan helped push to have Deadpool be Deadpool which is how we managed to get as much of the character as we did. Hopefully being such a wild success at the Box Office will convince Fox to take bigger risks with the sequel, and it seems to be doing just that considering they really are looking for someone to cast as… Read more »

Definitely an interesting review and seeing the movie for myself on Wednesday so no SPOILERS I’m glad there weren’t any herw but too bad I’ll have to wait for the bum review.

This is Tim Miller’s first film as a director, so I’d be shocked if we got something on the level of Edgar Wright

Negasonic Teenage Warhead was the other X-men`s name

Although she had Cannonball’s powers because they decided not to use him so they could avoid the trap of making him a dumb hick. And then they decided on her because they were looking through a list of minor X-Men characters and had pretty much the same reaction to her name that Deadpool had.

Ahh, I’m so spilt. On the one hand, I love superhero movies and I know that the last time there was a PG-13 Deadpool on screen it didn’t work out so well. On the other hand, I don’t like raunchy humor and I have a no R-rating rule.

Deadpool is not that cruel of a superhero

He’s not a super hero though

When Bob showed up I literally squealed like a little girl.
He wasn’t from Hydra but I’ll take it.

Wait for the directors cut, Doug and everybody else who felt like there weren’t a whole lot of jokes, seriously, wait for the directors cut. According to Ryan Reynolds and T. J. Miller, there was hours of footage left on the cutting floor, not just to meet the 1:30 mark, but because Fox wanted to play it safe and because the R rating was getting to the point where they’d probably couldn’t get it past the suits. Otherwise, I fucking loved it, good god I just got home from seeing it and being a Deadpool fan, they nailed it. People… Read more »

Did anyone else have that first glance at the Xć-girl and go “OMG WTF IS THAT TAMARA CHAMBERS DOING CURIOSA AGAIN???”

I thought this was better than “Kung Fu Panda 3”, so by default, it’s my favorite movie of the year. Yes, I know there’s lots of Deadpool cosplayers! They are the craziest of them all! The jokes mostly hit spot on. It did come off as uneven with the dramatic parts, but they were still really well done. I know more than you do about the character.

Can’t wait for a review of the My Little Pony movie where you’ll probably say the same thing.
