WORD OF THE DAY! 4/9/15!
dead pool [ded-pool]
1. A game of prediction which involves guessing when and/or how someone will die.
EX. I like Dead Pool.
I think we all hate how X-Men Origins: Wolverine managed to fill every scene with as many fan and audience disappointing bull*** as they could. The story was garbage, the action was non-sense and not even in a good way, and they butchered/mutilated so many interesting Marvel characters in their first on-screen appearance.
The only good part of the movie was the introduction of Wolverine's paramilitary mutant group and the highlight of that scene was Ryan Reynolds cracking jokes like out of an over-the-top 80's action movie (Predator anyone?) and stealing the show as a samurai sword-wielding wise ass. It was a pretty promising introduction for Deadpool's early days before he got completely Unfortunately, like everything in that film, Deadpool came out of it with absolutely no dignity. How little dignity is that? This much:
They literally took Deadpool, "The Merc with a Mouth", and grafted his mouth shut to turn him into a stupid video game end boss for Wolverine and Sabertooth to fight.
And the next few years we saw growing fan hype for character (which, I hate to say, nothing turns me off a character more than over-saturation) and Deadpool became one of those films in production hell but, as I sit here typing this bull crap, they're filming a new movie. Hollywood, amirite?
Here's to Fox pulling off a film that I can enjoy as much, if not more, than Days of Future Past.
