    I did enjoy the way Juggernault was “dealt with”.

  2. Doug R says:

    Is this thing on?

  3. JS Partisan says:

    I’m just happy, that Vanessa was saved. I did enjoy, how the opening credits are annoyed by her being killed. It’s just such a fun movie, and the X-Force scene is the funniest scene in any movie this year. I literally pulled a muscle in a back, from laughing so hard. It’s that tremendously funny.

  4. Doug R says:


    BO wise, looks like Deadpool has left the Avengers Juggernaut is in the pool.

  5. JS Partisan says:

    Juggernaut got out of the pool.

  6. Sideshow Bill says:

    I was thrilled with the Juggarnaut surprise. They kept that a pretty good secret, at least from me. redeems the shit Brett Ratner did with the character.

    It was a lot of fun. And the little X-Men cameo was very clever.

  7. EtGuild2 says:

    Matt Damon’s 2nd Marvel cameo in a year, and I couldn’t tell till after the movie when I was confirming Brad Pitt.

    Agreed, the X-Force scene was great. I was rooting for Peter!

  8. Pete B says:

    DP 2 had alot of great moments, but it had some that dragged on too long.

    But, sign me up for a Domino movie ASAP.

  9. Hcat says:

    Not sure if this is a spoiler thread or not but SPOILER in question:

    Next year when Avengers does whatever logistical gymnastics to bring back half a universe, is it going to be a case of “Deadpool did it first.” Did the junior varsity Marvel Uni just successfully troll the big guys?

  10. JS Partisan says:

    HC, DP2 is a family movie. Avengers 4 is about giving four characters a happy send off, introducing what the franchise is going to be for the next six years (at the very least), and Captain Marvel beating the crap out of Thanos. Different things.

  11. Hcat says:

    Sure the tones of the two films are different and how the characters interact and how the deaths move the stories along and all that yes are different. But I was specifically talking plot points. If Avengers uses the same Duex es Marvelna as Deadpool does for the sake of resurrection will it have the same impact since its been done before.

  12. JS Partisan says:

    Oh. You talking about time travel. Again, no one is dead, and they are just in the soul stone. Why are Tony and Scott time traveling? Preparing.

  13. palmtree says:

    The way everyone is saying how disappointing it would be for Avengers to turn time back is precisely why they won’t do it. I mean, if they built up a thing over 19 movies only to create a plot twist everyone can see a mile away, then we’re really not giving Marvel enough credit here. I think they’ve proven that they take this whole cinematic universe seriously.

    But then to have people like Richard Brody in the New Yorker use that as justification for a negative review makes me mad. Like, how do you start the review by telling people you’re ignorant of the characters in the MCU and then proceed to review stuff that hasn’t happened yet as if you had any credibility to begin with???

  14. JS Partisan says:

    No. Palm, they are doing something with time, because there are pictures to prove it. There’s also postings for period cars from the 40s and 60s. What does it all mean? They are going to prepare for Thanos for decades. All the best and brightest, working together, to save the day.

    Also, this is going to be a three hour film. They need it that long to finish this story, because that’s what it is. The end of the first decade and the beginning of the next ten. Using time travel to tie everything together, will let people see a lot of cool stuff on screen, and hopefully build the Goodwill. Nevertheless, the time faders looks like Deadpool’s. Just figuratively saying.

  15. Triple Option says:

    I liked Deadpool 2 better than the original. I liked sitting in a movie and not knowing what was coming next.

    SPOILER, jic! I hated knowing that Brad Pitt was in it. I wasn’t thinking ‘oh, Vanishing must be Pitt’ but when he is shown it’s not nearly the happy surprise it coulda been. I found this out be some article headline. So it’s not some loud mouths around the office cooler. So screw you on that, Fox! Did you really have to ruin a good bit for those not in the Thurs night “preview” screening? Did you really think, “uhh, we better let everyone know Brad Pitt is in it or we won’t open over $100M.”

  16. Triple Option says:

    They already set up the time re-set crystal. Even if they don’t do re-set per se, it’s gonna feel just the same as a cheap re-set.

  17. Hcat says:

    Thanos nothin’ Jim Gianopulos might have just wiped out the entirety of the Transformers Universe with a snap of his fingers.

“Because of my relative candor on Twitter regarding why I quit my day job, my DMs have overflowed with similar stories from colleagues around the globe. These peeks behind the curtains of film festivals, venues, distributors and funding bodies weren’t pretty. Certain dismal patterns recurred (and resonated): Boards who don’t engage with or even understand their organization’s artistic mission and are insensitive to the diverse neighborhood in which their organization’s venue is located; incompetent founders and/or presidents who create only obstacles, never solutions; unduly empowered, Trumpian bean counters who chip away at the taste and experiences that make organizations’ cultural offerings special; expensive PR teams that don’t bring to the table a bare-minimum familiarity with the rich subcultural art form they’re half-heartedly peddling as “product”; nonprofit arts organizations for whom art now ranks as a distant-second goal behind profit.”

To me, Hunter S. Thompson was a hero. His early books were great, but in many ways, his life and career post–Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail is a cautionary tale for authors. People expected him to be high and drunk all the time and play that persona, and he stuck with that to the end, and I don’t think it was good for him. I always sort of feel mixed emotions when I hear that people went and hung out with Hunter and how great it was to get high with Hunter. The fact is the guy was having difficulty doing any sustained writing at all for years probably because so many quote, unquote, “friends” wanted to get high with him … There was a badly disappointed romantic there. I mean, that great line, “This is where the wave broke, the tide rolled back … ” This was a guy that was hurt and disappointed and very bitter about things, and it made his writing beautiful, and also with that came a lot of pain.
