I thought everyone hated the movie?

I guess everyone loved the movie since it had decent sales… Except both statements hold no value.

Well numbers don’t lie. So I would guess the majority of people apparently liked it enough to buy it. (remember not EVERY person voices their opinion if they loved or hated it on the internet) Alot of people don’t concern themselves with social media, internet news or even have a computer.

I’m sure what they all found out was that there wasn’t any Rotten Tomatoes to be found.

Eh, this means the movie sold well, which is great for WB, but it doesn’t mean much else. It was a tentpole film and even though it fell short of WB insane expectations, it still made about 900mil in theatres; meaning, we already knew it was a financially successful movie.

Besides, RT is a bad metric to gauge audience reactions and the Internet tends to love its drama. The best way (which is still not infallible) of gauging reaction is the ticket sales of subsequent movies.

Idiotic RT seems to have fallen some where in a category such as Consumer Reports. If they say it’s good or bad, well it must be. Either buy it or don’t. RT seemingly has gotten enough credibility to opinion-ate it self by doing the same thing. If they say it’s good or bad, watch it or don’t. RT IMO had plenty to do with the initial negative responses that were unfairly directed towards BvS.

Deadpool???? How many times could anyone watch that crap-o-la? That is truly your one and done. So owning it would be like keeping your old worn out shoes in the closet.

we get that you don’t like Deadpool, but there is plenty of evidence that shows that many people don’t share your sentiment.

I get what he is saying, I saw Deadpool twice in theaters and the first time it was hilarious and solid, but the next week I saw it I was pretty much over it. Definitely had the opposite affect with MoS (saw 5 times in theater), BvS (4 times), and The Winter Solider (3 times). To me and I guess him, it isn’t a movie I can watch multiple times in a short span of time. I do own DP on BR, but that’s only because I got a really good deal on it during Black Friday – $5.99

Well.. I guess I like old worn out shoes in my closet then :p , because I own “Deadpool” and don’t/won’t own either MoS or BvS – and I think it’s been just as funny if not funnier on repeated viewings. I get that it’s not for everyone, of course, but I loved it.

The special features are pretty cool, too. Looking forward to the sequel!

Whether or not one liked Deadpool isn’t the issue. For me I guess to an extent I for one resented it. But why I “resented” it, was because of the trash that BvS got and the thumbs up that DP got when it was a movie that was nothing more than an excuse to do R rated things. The plot was absolutely stupid. When you have a movie that has a serious plot like BvS then have one like DP that’s a buffoon fest and it gets more appreciation when it really had nothing to offer except R rated tripe.… Read more »

I haven’t seen Deadpool yet (haven’t got around to it), but I can appreciate it being loved for what it did for super-hero movies. I have far more ire for Avengers (it really doesn’t hold up to repeated viewings) and Civil War (which is fine, but when I finally saw it, I was flabbergasted because its core story is exactly the same as BvS).

When you finally do see it I’m sure your going to ask your self first off, is DP really a superhero movie? I think your spot on about the Avengers. I don’t go into seeing Marvel movies with any kind of attitude. But these Avengers movies especially Civil War borderline on we’re making up the movie as we go along. They made such a big deal about that fight in the airport. To me it was ridiculous. I mean Antman (and I liked the solo movie), grows to 50 feet tall and rips the wing off a multi million dollar… Read more »

Avengers (it really doesn’t hold up to repeated viewings

This is very true. Both of them. But, I find that with a lot of the Marvel movies, with the exception of Captain America. But, even Civil War felt stale with repeated viewings.

Deadpool was a pretty accurate representation of the comic, which is also r-rated content and juvenile humor. It’s not for everyone, clearly, but I think that’s where the difference lies. People see Deadpool as an accurate representation of the character and that required the R rating to do. Some, not all, I’m just playing devils advocate here,don’t think that BvS was a proper representation of the characters. I defend BVS outside of this site, but if I’m honest with you guys and myself, it was nowhere near what I wanted it to be. I personally don’t like Frank Millers version… Read more »

sundevil, that pretty much is my thinking, as well. It’s not just that it’s good (imo), but that it’s accurate to the source material. For me personally, BvS and MoS were not. In some cases, I liked the idea and changes (how Lois enters the picture was a very fresh take with a lot of possibility, imo much of it not used), but a lot just fell flat to me or making controversial script decisions just for the sake of them being so. My opinion of course, but I feel that if it weren’t the case they’d have been larger… Read more »

Thanks Kal-Elvis. Nobody is denying snyder is great at visuals and that David Goyer can contribute to a good story, but by themselves, they struggle telling a compelling story. I really liked MoS and find it to be rewatchable, but I think BvS is going to suffer the same fate as SR for me and that I’m only going to be able to watch certain scenes. I’m all for a realistic approach and also to make Superman’s feeling more complex, but the last three films have made superman a silent hero and I’m sick of it. The powers that be… Read more »

Yeah – depending on how JL turns out, I think MoS and BvS run the risk of ending up drawing a similar reaction to SR. And I agree with your thoughts as to Snyder and Goyer – they’ve demonstrated that they have talent, but they need hard boundaries and a guiding hand to really steer them in the right direction. It really wouldn’t take much to make either of these movies much, much better.. but for me, all those little bits add up to a lot of problem. On a realistic approach, I also agree – I was all for… Read more »

I will, eventually; I actually liked the trailers, it’s just that the super-hero movie bubble burst for me a very long time ago. I had to binge watch the Marvel and the X-Men films a few weeks back, because I hadn’t kept up since Avengers and Origins: Wolverine, respectively. That’s also one of the main reasons I like BvS as much as I do; it’s a very interesting movie, one I can watch and read something different in it in each subsequent viewing. I expect I’ll like Deadpool for how different it is– then again, I expected the same of… Read more »

It is a great achievement, considering the circumstances (three years of “audience condtioning” by hate and negativity, treatment by “critics” and the fact that this movie is not a commercial product designed to fit expectations and satisfy everybody). These numbers prove there are more people that appreciate this movie than popular narrative suggests. It is obvious that formulaic commercial products disguised as movies are more popular and earn more money, but they lack depth and have low or average re-watchability for many people. I find such films (most MCU movies and Deadpool) worse and less enjoyable with each viewing, but… Read more »

Can’t say I’m surprised. It’s clear more people loved it than those who hated it. Then again, if everyone hated it, it wouldn’t have reached a quarter billion much less more than half a billion…
