Heh. Awesome image.

I already saw it. It turns out a crazed fan killed Johnny Squares, and not the director.

We will also except "tacos" as a valid answer.

/facepalm
 
2011-04-11 01:49:20 PM  
Tacos!

Nice. Now I'm crossing my fingers and chanting over and over, "Please let it be good..."

Chimichangas, chimichangas, chimichangas.

/Heh. Funny word.

From TFA:

"He's never directed a feature film before, but he did visual effects on X-Men, X2, Gigli, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World..."

This is not what one would call a ringing endorsement.

Then again, this might be just the gig someone looking to make a name for themself might want.

Yeah but the visual effects in X-Men, X2 and Scott Pilgrim were pretty good. Never saw Gigli, like much of the country, but I'm sure he did an alright job for whatever the visual effects were.

So it's going to have really great effects and explosions. That's nice. I'd rather have an experienced director who spends more time with people than with computers, professionally, but then again I rarely get what I want.
 
2011-04-11 02:30:40 PM  
remember that awesome script that came up a while ago? has that ever been debunked or confirmed?

pretty sure it had unicorns. don't remember tacos, or pegasii.

Wonder if Fox is still suing that poor screenwriting mom for sharing the Deadpool screenplay that she downloaded from one of the bigger rumor sites on the internet.

Fox didn't go after the rumor sites, nor go after the person who leaked the screenplay, but they went after this poor lady and sued her for $14 million dollars.

We were in a comic shop Saturday and my son was bummed because he heard one of the customers dissing Deadpool. I pointed out to my son that hipsters can read comics as well.

A) You need Ryan Reynolds. He would make the perfect Deadpool and he's already said he hated what they did to the character in "Origins: Wolverine" and wants a complete reboot.

B) You need to start the film in an empty movie theater playing Origins: Wolverine. There's one silhouetted figure in front of you cursing, smoking a cigar, and insulting everything about the movie (except he LOVES that Ryan Reynolds guy). The camera then shows the screen and the FUBARed Project X Deadpool makes his debut. The silhouette stands up screams "Who the fark is this imposter!", pulls out dual MP5 SMGs and lights up the entire screen, ripping it to shreds. He then turns around and says "Well that's what I get for trying to sell this beautiful face to Hollywood" as he slowly walks out, but not before flicking his cigar at the screen and lighting the whole theater up.

I may be wrong in thinking this is the stupidest idea since Greedo shot first, but a Deadpool movie, who would pay to see something like that?

I actually thought X1 was very bland visually, but I think the budget was something of an issue..

But yeah, X2 was very good. The Nightcrawler intro scene, and Magneto ripping the metal out of the rent-a-cops blood were both very well done in particular. Overall it had a much 'bigger' feel and much more in line with my expectations. It's too bad they never made a third film. ;)

I remember someone in another Deadpool thread suggesting something similar, but with someone dressed as Deadpool actually IN the theater, yelling stuff at the movie.

In my opinion, X1 did very well with what they had. This was the first movie in the franchise so it was a gamble for the studio. After the success they gave em a blank check for the special effects in X2 (which was the absolute best of them in all aspects) and I loved the "too much iron in your blood" scene, perfect escape for him. X3 suffered the same problem that almost every trilogy does: The studio assumes the audience is bored with 1 villain, so they cram a ton of em in and you have no time to develop any characters. Plus the fact that they killed Cyclops in the first 2 minutes. Yea I also choose to forget that cinematic abortion.

Hehehehe funny thing is I suggested the same thing in a thread before that one (great minds and all that). Doesn't bug me though because one person who didn't read my post might've read his, so the idea still gets passed (and it is a great idea). I always believed the first scene should be Deadpool immediately breaking the fourth wall, and what better way to do that than acknowledging that's NOT him in that movie, just a crappy imposter with his mouth sewn shut (Deadpool would never allow that to happen).

Fair points about X1 and the budget issue. I'm also being too revisionist here....I liked it at the time it came out. I just happened to watch it again though about a month ago, and it really didn't hold up well over time. Then again, it must be nearly what, 12-13 years old now.

Here's how bad I thought X3 was: I honestly thought the deaths of Cyclops and Xavier were a sham, right up until the credits started to roll. To this day I can't believe they thought it wise to kill the two characters central to the entire concept of the X-men, including the team's namesake. It's almost impossible to list all the things wrong with that movie.

I actually like to believe that Scotty read the script for X3, said it sucked copious amounts of ass, and demanded to be killed in the first 5 minutes so he wouldn't be associated with it. The only character I liked was Beast and he barely got any characterization at all because of the 438 new mutants they kept introducing.

I'll also agree that X1 hasn't aged well. And it's surprising because X2 has aged really well, I can watch that one pretty much any time it's on.

The death of Cyclops was sadly a case of Real Life Writes the Plot. Marsden was also involved with Superman Returns at the time, and simply couldn't do both projects at once.

X3 as a whole was just... sad. X2 definitely holds up the best.

I always thought he left for the same reason that I heard Singer did. They wanted to do Superman, Fox gave them an 'us or them' ultimatum to make the blockbuster release timeframe, and both of them told Fox to get farked.
And then went on to make a lousy Superman movie.

I want Ryan Reynold's normal voice to be yellow box. I think they should mess his voice up with fx somehow for his actual speech.

I too like the idea of Deadpool trashing the theater at the end of Origins.

Though, for the opening credits, I'd like to see some over the top gratuitous action scene with Reynolds narrating it. Each narration should be accompanied by an action still of Deadpool in an embarrassing position. (a freeze frame of him getting stabbed in the kidney, with Reynolds explaining how he has the guy right where he wants him, etc.) Also, at some point in the flick, have a cell phone randomly start ringing until Deadpool starts starting pointing his gun at the camera and shouts at the audience.

In my defense, my wife was probably attempting to remove the belt I was attempting to suffocate myself with by that point, so I was more than a little distracted.

At any rate, the only thing I recall was Magneto slightly moving the chess piece. Was there something more?

Oh well, at least we'll be spared an X4. And I'm not at all sold on this X-Men prequel I've seen trailers for.

Sorry Katja. I would kill to see this movie done right, but I'm not holding my breath.

Just imagine Wade freaking out at the camera. Then, the camera shifts to a different angle showing him yelling at a blank wall with every other person in the room just staring at him wondering what he's on. Finally have him abruptly stop, mutter under his breath about what a cock the director is, and start shooting people.

By that point I had run out of languages to swear in and was starting on fake alien ones. Attempting to say fark in Kryptonian is very distracting okay.
