Just watched it. Feel free to ask me anything about it.
Some salient tidbits to start with:
Weasel and Blind Al are pretty great.
Wade's LI is good.
doesn't like it up the ass.
Origin story gets pretty dark.
There is an after-credits scene. In fact, there are TWO stingers.
Keira Knightleymight play Cable in the sequel.
Just the Professor. Deadpool makes a joke about it later when he
visits the mansion.
Though a few cameo unnamed.
There's a callback to it where Blind Al and Wade argue over
Blind Al also has the displeasure of - due to her hearing being pretty good and them living in a duplex - hearing Wade masturbate. Which he does often. But the two jokes they make about it are pretty damn hilarious.
Love Interest. It's Copycat, but not a mutant. Still hot though.
him to join the X-Men and use his powers for good. He's also after Ajax to make him answer for his involvement with the mutant soldier experiments.
Action's good and it has enough visceral speed and impact to make you forget that all this can't technically hurt Deadpool.
Pacing is the sort where it starts in media-res, shows you how it got to that point, and then moves forward with the story. But it adds new pieces and gags after the narration catches up to current events so you don't feel cheated.
Yes. Yes you do. Including one of the most vulgar and arguably inventive gags involving a healing factor.
Don't click on this image if you don't want a hint.
I don't think so, but Deadpool does make fun of the MCU stingers at one point.
There's a "16 wall breaking" sequence, but it's not any worse than most "this is how we got here" narrations since the story does its best to make you feel that Wade's struggles and emotions matter.
Ha ha, oh shit. That should be fun.
So how's Negasonic Teenage Warhead? She's not too annoying, is she? And how's Ajax handled? I already know they skipped the identity theft plot, so is he at least slightly memorable?
Wade takes the wind out of her sails early on, but her snark's fun enough.
Ajax is an uber dick that's obsessed with his name after Wade learns his real one. We're talking major asshole; half of the origin story is showing us why Wade wants to murder him so very, very much. And you come to understand and want him to kill Ajax so very, very much. Because he's a dick.
And instead of identity, Wade's reasons for going after Ajax are based on another aspect of Deadpool's character and is pretty much his fatal flaw in this film:
Cable will appear in it, but they haven't cast anyone yet.
Deadpool heads over to the
Xavier School/Mansion to recruit Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead to help him fight Ajax. Beast is mentioned, as is the Professor. And while a few mutants appear in the Weapon X portion, Colossus and Negasonic are the only real X-Men that appear.
Days of Future Past scrambled the timeline, so this probably takes place in the new continuity.
Deadpool's love interest in this movie is Copycat, albeit, as a hooker and waitress instead of a mutant.
So maybe. I'd be down with it. Reynolds was fun in this movie. Would love to see him plopped down in the "did you know the Four Horsemen were in the Book of Revelations"/"MUH HOLOCAUST!!!!" X-Men films.
over a year being tortured by Weapon X. Beatings, electrocution, drownings, claustrophobic cages, and a suffocation machine that leaves you just enough air to gasp and struggle for it indefinitely; like an anti-iron lung.
>want to see this movie but have no one to see it with since I had to move back home for medical reasons
>don't want to go see it alone
>only person I can think of asking is my mom
She likes some crude humor but I don't know. Does it really go all out?
Did the movie keep the scene in about how he finds his costume?
In the script he went in a costume store and found a superhero outfit of spiderman and turned the mask inside out which made the deadpool mask.
There was also a scene of him undercover on a train in the subway wearing a trenchcoat like the turtles and peeking through a newspaper with eyes hole cut out, he lowers the paper to reveal he has a poorly cut out picture of ryan reynolds stapled to his face.
that still in?
>In the script he went in a costume store and found a superhero outfit of spiderman and turned the mask inside out which made the deadpool mask.
That would look amazing.
How did he get costume in comics? Always had it or there's some backstory?
starts out with a white hoodie and a scarf-and-goggles combo, then a raggedy version of his iconic costume, before moving onto the final product.
Nah. But he
teabags a guy.
I too came back from the movie just now and everything OP has said is correct
I give it a 7.5/10 because too much Wade not enough Deadpool, but everything else lived up to my expectations.
I'm a big Kelly fan so I enjoyed seeing the old cast showing up instead of the Waypool shit, but a bit of a shame that Weasel was just a bartend and not the "techno guy". Was surprised to see Bob too
Does Deadpool have any depth or is he a shallow quip spouting tard the whole time? Does the facade ever break and show just how fuckin broken and miserable he really is? Or does the movie just play on the internets idea of Deadpool?
From the trailer it doesn't look like Weapon X does anything to him mentally. Just physically. He's already cracking jokes well before the surgery.
In this universe Wade was always a wiseguy, the only parts where he's shown that he's broken and miserable was because "I can't be with my waifu because I'm ugly and everyone thinks I'm ugly and therefore she will think I am ugly and dump me, boohoo" and I thought that was kinda dumb.
But the depth is sort of there and Deadpool vents to Blind Al and Weasel in comedic ways, but other than that not much
No moments of him becoming more than a little unhinged or anything? I was sorta hoping we'd see him crack and drop the clown routine during the final fight or something.
The first 20-30 min of the film was solid 10/10 worth the watch
It falls apart when the flashbacks begin and everything didn't live up to the first half.
The movie is 6.8/10 overall for me, I was underwhelmed in the end.
basically the opening credits were filled with lines like
Scriptwriters: The Real Heroes of the Story
Executive Producers: Asshats with too much money on their hands
Shit like that instead of actually listing out names
She is a minor character in the new xmen story, she was a precog, she predicted genosha, and died also i'm fairly certain she was black. Just google it or read it, or watch it i feel like it was on netflix i think
I think I'll go check it out tonight since its already out in my country. Would be my 1st time going to the movies solo.
I won't imax though, ticket prices here are crazy enough as is (about 20 US dillarydoos)
I had the same problem, hit up a chick on tinder the one that seems least crazy like she was forced to sign up by her friends and onviously looks like she'll enjoy it. If it goes to shit you just say that she looks like if two alvocados had sex. Good luck
I'm pretty sure he always had it after his weapon X episode, no particular backstory even in the old series.
But Weasel made most of his tech gadgets like the teleportation belt and other stuff.
>complaining about Quippool being quippy
>internets idea of Deadpool
Are you serious? If this is an issue for you why even watch a Deadpool movie?
>angst = depth
Tell that to Anniekid Skywalker
There's no surgery. They just beat and torture the shit out of him for a year. Wade has to
blow himself up to get out of their greatest torture device and has to watch the other test subjects die after Ajax traps him in the burning research complex.
Just watched the movie, easily the best superhero movie ever next to The Winter Solider.
There's about 12 huge laughs and even thou not all the jokes hit it was never cringy.
Action was great apart from the parts where the CGI was lent great.
Villain was good not great. Somewhat forgettable
You're thinking of Craigslist. Online dating is mostly just stuck up bitches who think they're better than everyone else despite being too damaged to date anybody normally. Just all mental cases.
Ill drop some cool shit for you guys that i havent seen in the thread
Angels tit falls out in her fight with colossus and he stops the fight to tell herany other questions?
stan lee cameo is quite forced
drops major blows on the MCU at the end
Copycat doesnt use her powers at all
Colossus is amazing throughout
Rob Ls name is on a coffee cup at the start
Deadpool seems to have superstrength
>mfw there are non-stop vulgar sex jokes, gay jokes and rape jokes throughout and even a scene where he beats the shit out of a female bad guy and
says he doesnt know if it's sexist to hit a woman, or to not hit her because shes a woman, and decides to just blow her brains out
SJWs blown the fuck out
>scene where he beats the shit out of a female bad guy and says he doesnt know if it's sexist to hit a woman, or to not hit her because shes a woman, and decides to just blow her brains out
oh shit. is this a real life? pure gold
It was reeeeaaally close to the leaked script. I found the movie a bit less funny but the realisation was really creative for such a low budget.
Best difference I loved : Wade forgets the huge bag of weapons for the final battle and goes bare hands/all katana instead.
It was p. good. It's trying to be stupid but at the same time it's probably smarter than most cape movies.
This movie went out and did what it had to do, if people don't like it it's fine, but it was committed to what it was.
I liked it.
Bullet in the head when Colossus is trying to convince him to spare Francis in the end because blah blah you only have 3-4 moments to be a hero and so on. DP just got tired of his shit and finishes the bad guy.
It's probably more nonsensical than that, since Deadpool
directly references the X-Men movies.
When Colossus says
"you should meet the professor"Wade answers "McAvoy or Stewart? The timeline is so confusing"
Also I'm pretty sure he makes a joke about
Ryan Reynolds' acting talentat one point.
That gag about fox being too cheap to hire the rest of the x-men we only see Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead at the school
Was that a wrecked helicarrier at the end and they got away with it by just not using its name? Could swear I saw the engines on the side.
Bob, agent of Hydra and Deadpool sidekick/buddy of misfortune after Weasel (mostly in Waypool arc). Clearly the most ridiculous character of the serie but often useful nonetheless.
They went to mocking the Green Lantern/Wolvering stuff a LITTLE bit too much, but I guess if you didn't know it was coming it was pretty funny
8/10, pretty great start to introducing Deadpool. Fingers crossed it does well enough to stand on itself, i'm sure they were setting up a cameo in an Xmen film at some point too.
I watched it earlier today and I don't know, I just didn't feel it, I really wanted to like it but some of the jokes and his general vibe felt a bit too Wayish to me and TJ Miller just really pissed me off whenever he opened his mouth.
I'm a big fan of Deadpool (Cable and Deadpool being my favourite piece of material for the character) but I straight faced the entire film.
But then again I might have to watch it again as my cinema showing had groups of black Londoners that kept laughing and shouting and taking pics with flash on at every violent scene ever.
Yeah but in this universe Wade isn't a mutate from Wolvie cells or whatever it was, their only connection is they're both mutant Canucks with awkwardly similar power.
But hey, still a better origin than Origins.
>some of the jokes and his general vibe felt a bit too Wayish to me
You should re-read Kellypool then.
>But then again I might have to watch it again as my cinema showing had groups of black Londoners that kept laughing and shouting and taking pics with flash on at every violent scene ever.
Yeah that can't help.
I'm a big fan too and I also felt a bit off during the whole movie. Clearly Ryan was 100% in his role, some jokes were really well found, some realisation parts were audacious and creative, I liked the music quite a lot...But you can really see it's a small budget one. It felt rushed, so short yet so many jokes and action it was hard to follow...And I know we're talking about Deadpool here. People around me surely didn't get all the references (heck if even I did), but the reactions were sincerely good. I might have expected something more, but we must admit it's a miracle Deapool isn't bad, but a really GOOD and entertaining movie.
I didn't get some pop culture references (and even then I got more than most of the theater) because they were very US-centric and I'm 30 but that's to be expected, other than that I think I "got" it.
It just. It just did what it wanted to do so genuinely and didn't really give a shit if people thought it was too low brow or referential, but then it didn't just wallow in being "edgy" and anticonformist. It wasn't an entirely faithful adaptation but it was genuinely a movie, it sort of had a soul that didn't looked like it had been dicked around by producers too much, and that was refreshing.
I'll need to rewatch it aswell, but I really liked it.
>tfw you were the only person to get the Heaven's Gate reference.
>"Time to make the chimi-fuckin-changas"
As he gears up to take on the big bad.
Thats the only time. He doesn't eat any, he doesn't express how much he loves them.
He eats some pizza?
Cable is drectly mentioned in the after credits tease. Deadpool says hes in the next one, doesn't know whos playing him. Maybe Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren or Keira Knightley He owns a Barakapool figure (sort of, it might not really exist). Theres a few mentions of sewing his mouth shut. Like how thats a really bad idea.
I'm gonna get the dialogue wrong but the vague gist of it is
>Ferris Bueller hallway
>DP comes out from around the corner in a bathrobe with his mask on
>Does the scene word for word
>"Ohh you're waiting for the big sequel tease? Were you expecting Samuel L Jackson with eyepatch or something? We don't have the cash for that"
>Something something, "pick up your trash" scene ends, black screen
>"Oh but I can leave you with an exclusive little tease"
>"We're bringing in Cable for the next one"
>Some stuff about casting him and what a big deal he is
Although she didn't have this much time on screen, I think Al was the most spot-on character of the movie, and even better than her original comic book equivalent. Thoughts about Leslie Uggams great performance ?
I want more of that. We got such a slight little tease of how much he fucks with her.
The origin baggage is all that really brought the movie down for me. Now that thats gone, and we've got the ultimate boring straightman coming I cant wait
Well they said Cable was in it, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be full-on Cable & Deadpool, you'd think DP and his supporting cast would still be bigger.
I wouldn't really make assumptions, but yeah, we're not going to see as much pathos as in the comics. It's mostly played as a comedy where the drama and action are good.
I could see it being a buddy cop kind of thing. Deadpool constantly ducking time travelling doomsayer Cable who needs Wade because hes the key to some future bullshit or something along those lines.
There should have been a bit in the secret ending where Deadpool points to the camera and goes "hahahaha! look at that loser! hes come to the cinema by himself! everyone point and laugh!" just for guys like you.
That sounds pretty cool and I'd enjoy this Wade riffing on X-Men time-travel plots, but you people really need to stop saying "buddy cop" for everything. Just "buddy movie" is a thing.
If you ever have a large popcorn bucket and it's at least 3/4ths empty, leave. It can be a super useful tool for carrying other garbage as long as its placed somewhere it wouldn't easily be kicked over.
probably the easiest way would just have it that Deadpool happens to have accepted a contract on some guy Cable has come back in time to stop.
I really can't see them adapting Cable's floating utopia arc without a major shift in tone for the XCU
buddy cop refers to two protagonists who would normally be opposed having to work together for some greater good. Not quite the same as a buddy movie which usually just means two friends. At least thats how I've always understood it.
Nah the opposites thing is true of buddy movies too, even stoner movies like Friday or Harold and Kumar follow that dynamic.
>The buddy film is a film genre in which two (or on occasion, three) people of the same sex (historically men) are put together. The two often contrast in personality, which creates a different dynamic onscreen than a pairing of two people of the opposite sex. The contrast is sometimes accentuated by an ethnic difference between the two.
>voice over as he is being thrown into a car: this is the most colossal fuck-up of my life! ok... not the worst...
>cut to wolverine: origins action figure laying on table
>is there references to Hugh Jackman wolverine
No less than three.
>what happened in the end credits scenes?
Deadpool tells you to go home and then says that Cable will be in Deadpool 2
Yeah seen it now. Anytime he dropped jokester mode and went into a rage, I loved that. I wish he kept it up throughout the final fight. Really needed that "oh fuck hes serious now" moment
the opening credits list the various actors by comedic descriptors (Ryan Reynolds is listed as 'God's Perfect Moron', Colossus's VA is listed as 'CGI Character'). This is all set to "Angel in the Morning" aqs we get a slow-mo pan through the carnage Deadpool caused.
