Granted the movie isn't even out yet, but it still has a pretty good rating. What are the expectations from people who aren't going to nitpick it? Will it be as great a the marketing?
I feel if the story is being drowned out by all the dick jokes, I may not enjoy it as much. Yeah it will be funny, but pointless. I think if it sucks, they should just keep deadpool as the comic relief character in the big team up films... Maybe X-Force perhaps?
don't want to be a sour grape or anything, but does rotten tomato and other rating websites even consider reliable today? I meant, some reviewers are just some clueless outsiders or downright bias reviewers.
I'm expecting the same as Guardians of the Galaxy. Great reviews for a bland movie that gets a pass for being a comic movie that does something mildly different. The humor will be bottom denominator pandering.
okay then, thanks. I still remember one reviewer on metacritic give Jurassic World a fat zero just because she thought the plot is "stupid". Then? What about all the other sugarcoating romances treacheries? Those movies are extremely formulaic and overrated.
Not the same guy, but I only shitpost when faggots try to act like a shitty movie is good (MoS). other than that I never actually go out of my way to criticise a film even if it's horrible.
Not the same guy either but I go where the dank memes are, regardless of how I feel about the movie in question.
I don't think it's going to be good shitposting material even if it's terrible because it's trying to be funny. The dankest memes come from movies that tried to be serious like TDKR and MoS
We're all on Zack Snyder.
The only reason it will have a fresh rating is because of Affleck and Terio on damage control.
Other than seeing GOAT Batman, that movie is gonna be mediocre film
>robotic murderous Supes from previous crappy film
>vanilla anorexic wonderwoman
>riddler esque beta Lex Luther
>throw away Doomsday villain which should of been saved for a solo Superman that doesn't fucking suck
of course Deadpool is going to be better.
The thing is that Snyder and Goyer had a head start on cocking this shit up.
Even Iben Ben Aflik and his harem of good writers can't polish a turd.
I remain skeptical.
But if he pulls it off, I'll freely convert to islam and gift him one of my daughters.
Looks like my 2016 prediction is coming true.
1. Civil War
2. Doctor Strange

It's dropping pretty fast from what was a high start on 30 reviews, on 83% now on just 18 additional reviews.
Fantfourstic all over again.
>but muh marketing campaign
Yeah, go watch your marketing campaign for two hours instead. You'll enjoy it more.
I work at a cinema and saw it today in our staff preview. It's a truly amazing film and Deadpool has been done justice.
However, there's not enough Deadpool bits in it. It's hard to explain. It's a very refreshing movie to watch though.
This is the rating I expected for it. Witty, well-executed lowbrow entertainment usually scores in the 70s and 80s, and that's what I think this movie is going for.
I've watched a few reviews and the opinions concern me. Mostly because I know the reviewers have never read a deadpool comic, yet they insist the movie stays true to the comic incarnation. It's actually a pretty common beef I have with reviewers as a whole, but the popular image of deadpool is so far removed from his best comics that this movie could really end up disappointing me.
The problem is that you have to feel for Wade. You need to really feel how soul crushing and awful his life truly is. It's not the dick jokes. It's how those jokes juxtapose against a man sobbing while he desperately digs through a pile of corpses looking for his daughter while blaming himself
>a man sobbing while he desperately digs through a pile of corpses looking for his daughter while blaming himself
To be fair Kelley never got that soul crushing. It was just dick jokes juxtaposed with a man being tricked into fucking one of his enemies while emotionally vulnerable or spiraling out of control after stopping the worlds chance for ultimate happiness.
I think that's pretty crushing, honestly. Taking physical and emotional advantage of a man that broken while pretending to be one of the few people he really cares about and treats like an angel is fucked. Destroying what may be ultimate happiness without being sure you're doing the right thing is a pivotal character moment for him and it's something I think that will get lost in "lol he's so crude and self aware!"
They're going with the definitive GOOD Deadpool.
The Kelley run from the late 90's. Everything before and after that is unsalvagable garbage that will be completely ignored because of how utterly retarded it all is.
Rotten Tomatoes just gives you the percentage of critics who have it a positive review. In my experience, it's usually a decent indicator of whether a movie is enjoyable. Sometimes it's not. It's really up to you to decide whether you want to see it. If it helps you decide, though, wait until it's been out for a couple days and see what percent of the audience liked it.
Polls usually have Supes vs Bats at really close margins
(Not my pic by the way I just found it on
RT is what's known as a review aggregator. Basically, what they do is they compile critical reviews from various sources, and from the overall consesus of those reviews, they derive their "freshness" rating. Deadpool's current score reflects that early reviews have been mostly positive, with the odd negative review here and there.
Metacritic is pretty much the exact same thing. All they're good for is telling you the overall opinion of critics for a given movie. So, in my opinion at least, their usefulness is extremely limited.
Now, one exception to this is Cinemascore. What these guys do is send people out to poll audience members as they're leaving the theater, and based upon the results, they assign a letter grade. Still somewhat limited, but personally, I'd rather listen to people than critics.
For instance, we've all seen the RT screencap that shows Man of Steel's 56% rating. This would indicate that critical opinion was mostly split down the middle. But if you take the time to read the actual reviews, a depressingly large number of critics panned the movie for reasons that basically amounted to "NOT MUH DONNER", rather than any actual critical analysis. Critical reviews in this day and age aren't worth too much, so any site that rates movies based on critical opinion isn't worth much either.
At the end of the day though, if you want to know if a movie is good, just watch it and see if you like it.
