Tom Moore III: Let’s start with something easy. Deadpool.
Out of all the properties Fox has screwed up, THIS is the thing they seem to get right. A couple of the trailers have hinted at a little bit of heart too, which keeps Deadpool from being tedious.
R-Son: It’s not easy to screw up. Deadpool makes bad jokes and shoots/stabs stuff. The end
Tom Moore III: They screwed up the Punisher though. Its Fox.
Jd Korejko: They screwed up the Punisher SEVERAL times.
I think Deadpool looks pretty fun, and I’m not even a Deadpool guy. I usually find his character to be annoying
R-Son: Punisher wasn’t bad. The Thomas Jane one was close enough to Welcome Back, Frank to be good.
The rest, eh.
Tom Moore III (at Jd): Same here. And they’re redeeming Ryan Reynolds. Extra points for the Green Lantern joke.
(at Randy) I have a soft spot for War Zone, it’s the only one that delivered on the action and the character.
Jd Korejko: There was solid stuff in the last two Punisher movies…if you took them both and smoothed them together, you’d have one good one.
Tom Moore III: I can see that. Ray Stevenson was perfect.
Jd Korejko: Aw see, I think the Green Lantern joke fell flat, but I do like that he’s making jokes that break the fourth wall!
Yeah, Ray Stevenson was in his own movie, that sadly, none of the other actors showed up for.
R-Son: I still say GL wasn’t as bad as everyone else thought.
Jd Korejko: GL had its moments. But again, not enough of them.
Tom Moore III: I can think of a better way to spend 300 million.
Jd Korejko: lol, RIGHT?
R-Son: They just went too far too fast.
Tom Moore III: Good point. Had they built to the wars, and then maybe Black Lanterns-
Jd Korejko: And a giant yellow fart cloud as the enemy didn’t really work as well as they hoped.
But Ryan Reynolds I thought made a perfect Hal Jordan, just as he’s a perfect Wade Wilson.
R-Son: Make it a Hector Hammond/fall of Sinestro movie and it works.
Tom Moore III: Ryan Reynolds keeps getting wasted.
Jd Korejko: I don’t think Reynolds is ever the problem, in any of the bad films he’s been in.
R-Son: That’s for sure
Tom Moore III: Randy is right too. And I agree, I think they use Ryan to bail out a sinking movie and not vice versa.
