I had to do a double-take when I checked that. It was during the "BvS is going to be the lowest rated Superhero film this year" thread, and I was expecting to see Deadpool give it a run for its money, or at least have mediocre reviews, and then I find out it's universally liked?
Anon, those films print money whether they get good reviews or not. Deadpool isn't really a household name outside of internet meme culture. This movie is doing okay, but it's not going to dethrone the big players.
Shit when you guys said Nemesis I was thinking about DC's Nemesis and wondering when that was announced only to remember Millar also made a character named Nemesis and now I am silently screaming.
It seems like a very well made movie that does what it tries to do really well.
The only reason to dislike it is if you didn't like what it tries to do, and even that wouldn't make it a bad movie.
I am Deadpool fan myself and honestly didn't expect it to be more than a 'meh, it's good' 6/10 movie so when I started seeing the first critics I was really surprised
Well I still have to see it myself anyway, that's what counts in the end
Why would you believe reviews before mass release?
And just fuck rotten tomatoes in general
Any site that would give a near perfect score to Halloween but give 29% or lower to all it's sequels is just a site with score that have too wide of a margin or error.
Not really, most movies have high scores before their release weekend.
It's still waiting on about 170 reviews.
Most of the top critics are giving it 3/5 or less so far. They're likely to be the ones other reviewers agree with, so the score is going to come down for next weekend.
Also, no R-rated movie has ever made more than $500m, and most tend to not even make $200 even when they're huge successes, so don't bet on it going anywhere even if it's genuinely good.
No but you doesn't mean I have to like it, especially if the site has this kinda mob mentality, intentional or otherwise.
Even IMDB is more reasonable with reviewing.
When it comes to RT every movie seems to have a score either too high or too low when it comes to new releases.
Well sure, but that's less of an issue with RT and more of an issue with the fan-base.
It's a mildly useful tool, but it's useless as actual criticism. You find a handful of critics you enjoy or respect and go from there, people who substitute it for actual criticism are idiots.
Yeah but once you find the reviewers you kikenis there really reason to keep up with the rest of RT?
Be like of you liked RedLetterMedia you go through the motions of searching on YouTube for stuff like them when you know they are all you want.
>RT is a WB website
>WB/DC haters can't stop giving them money by visiting it
It's a variant cover, anon. They're only going to make like 20 of them anyways, and 4chan is a site with a larger userbase than the entire floppie buying market.
More people know the dubs meme than buy comics.
Top critics (the part that matters) percentage is 83%, all critics is now 85%, still pretty good, might drop to 75% at the end
All of my fucking friends are like this. Show them endless praise for something and they'll be benign, but show them one negative review amongst them and thats it, they're not interested.
It sounds like a great film for those that enjoy deadpool. tbqh pham the commercial's jokes didn't do anything for me, and it's not even that I'm too highbrow, I love Rick and Morty, but I don't care to see ryan reynold's penis or hear chimichanga.
>mfw fucking Deadpool gets a higher RT score than BvS
his point was RT scores don't really mean much.
I'll be surprised if a film directed by Zack Snyder, regardless of how good it actually is, gets universal approval. Some critics get their autism triggered whenever slow mo happens.
You mean the same ComicsAlliance that said only black writers should write Black Panther and blocked me because I said by using that logic only vampires should write Blade comics?
What, YouTube channels where people subject themselves to bad movies and make humorous observations about them?
That's like, an entire genre on YouTube.
>How Did This Get Made (podcast)
>The Book was Better
>Everything wrong with ___ in __ Minutes
Etc. Etc. Etc.
And the Granddady: MST3K was just the most successful TV kickstarter ever, making enough dosh for 13 new episodes.
>the action sequences sacrifice tension and excitement in favour of hyperactive editing and splattering gore. The result is rarely boring, but it’s not half as smart, funny or subversive as it clearly believes itself to be. That said, sweaty 15-year-old boys are going to be in heaven.
>However 6/10 is pretty far from the A+ some review gave it.
That reviewer is a pleb and a hack though. And not jokingly like the RLM guys.
I expect Deadpool to be good, but A+ seems a bit much.
Anyone saw the movie yet?
i know this is an "adult comedy" where violence and swearing is its bread and butter, but that lighter from the trailer left a bad taste in my mouth,, are there other cringeworthy moments i should avoid?
Yeah let's just have trigger warnings for low brow jokes, anon is sensible.
I feel like it's pointless to even try discussing this movie here. Nobody here has seen it, yet they've all made up their minds as to whether or not it's good or bad.
>mfw this movie is going to kill Zoolander 2
He did it, he finally broke into capeshit.
Now let's hope it doesn't flop.
Financially, you know it would probably at least sell more than KickAss 1.
I don't know if it would be a hit in the critics point of view once it airs its two weeks.
I know this is crazy but I am going to enjoy it if I like it, not because it had good ratings. There have been plenty of movies with great ratings, that I thought pretentious shit, and other movies with low ratings, I thought it ingenious.
Now that being said Deadpool will be an enjoyable action/comedy. I am not going to put on my critic hat and judge every minute detail. If it is enjoyable that is enough for me.
Anyone have a Deadpool recommended reading image or some shit?
I've never actually given the character a chance but I should probably read some stuff before interacting with "deadpool fans" on Thursday.
This isn't the joke that is the Video Game review scene. Some movie critics still take themselves seriously.
A 3/5 movie is a movie worth watching if it's anywhere near up your alley.
