Part of me wants to see Deadpool. But I don't want to see it at the same time because it's going to try SUPER HARD to force memes and be a meme movie. But I also don't want to be that pretentious prick who doesn't see a movie because it's "mainstream". What do?
Saw it today. Laughed my fucking ass off. I only have a passing familiarity with deadpool, so I can't really compare it to the source material. But like others have said, who the fuck cares.
Ways deadpool was the closest thing to Kelly's deadpool since he left. People who shit on ways pool are either bandwagoners who never read Kelly's run, nostalgia fags, gaypool fans from c&dp era.
It's really not. Way's run was just a bunch of words thrown together with no relation to what he was doing and no plot. Way even said he only planned 2 issues ahead.
No other run did that.
So was kelly's run. The meme were just older than memes themselves. Remember when street fighter was popular so he shoryukened, kitty. Remember prettyladypouringmilkwithbunnies. Remember image induced Ricardo montibon. Glurp who's head blew up all the time. He has always been a walking meme.
Shall I get into similar story beats. Trying to be a hero, kelly/way check. Pandering random guest appearances, kelly/way check. Trying to get himself killed, check. Awesome bullseye fight check. Random hulk fight, check. He brought back all the characters you hadn't seen since the kelly run. If anything you could complain he took to much from kelly.
But Deadpool is reddit: the flick, if anything saying something positive about it is tipping your funny man hat.
I'd post the screencap if I had it, but you probably know which one I'm talking about.
Wades "friend's" always had a hated/loved/feared relationship with him. That is not a new thing. It's straight from the kelly books. Remember blind al's box, that weasel got thrown into for hanging with with al. He has always been shit to his supporting cast. You're proving my point for me. The only reason/time they showed up in c&dp, is because/after cable left, and it was more homage thananything to do with the story. I admit still kinda dislike gaypool from the c&dp books.
He made up for that and became actual friends with them. Way eliminated all supporting cast he had before because he didn't want to write anyone else. That's why he made those fucking voices too.
And he still treated them like shit. That's why the feel good ending in c&dp is bunk anyway. Everyone ending up on the couch watching reruns with pool, after turning down a seat at things poker game, is straight up out of character for dp. He would have dropped his peeps like a bad habit.
