We Watched ‘Deadpool’ — A He Said, She Said Review of America’s Favorite Date Movie

We Watched ‘Deadpool’ — A He Said, She Said Review of America’s Favorite Date Movie

deadpool-2016-review-1

Icon Vs. Icon’s husband and wife team, Delores and Hank Price, Jr., are back in the mix this week with a brand new Pick of The Week. Check out their takes on the hottest date movie in America, ‘Deadpool.’ If are picking up what they are putting down or can smell what there are stepping in, follow the online ramblings of the dynamic duo on Twitter at @deloresprice80 and @thehenrypricejr.

She said: We watched “Deadpool” recently. Before firing up the 108-minute film, I knew people had their panties in a twist over the Marvel superhero. Hank explained some background information and I kind of remember what he said – Deadpool was in a movie or something but his character wasn’t portrayed well. He’s different from other superheroes because he’s a dirty birdy and not quite a good guy. So, I refilled my wine glass and we dove in for my first viewing and Hank’s second.

Ryan Reynolds is not the Green Lantern, he is Deadpool, a gross-faced, darker Van Wilder. Like if Van Wilder got his shit together and joined the military after college then became a mercenary but stayed snarky and raunchy. His face looks like a burnt Ferengi without the Elephant Man features. He has accelerated healing powers but can’t heal his crispy KFC skin.

'Dead pool' is for lovers.

‘Deadpool’ is for lovers.

The movie is over-the-top and ridiculous, but it seems like that’s the point. Before becoming Deadpool, Wade Wilson has a hot-to-trot but tough-as-nails girlfriend, played by Morena Baccarin. It’s all lovey dovey and jacking stalkers until he finds out he has terminal cancer – he collapses after proposing to his lady love. Wade is approached by a mystery man from a mystery corporation who says he can cure his cancer. He leaves his lady and lets them go to town on his body – I guess if you have nothing to lose then why not? Cue Ajax and Angel Dust – not names of meth heads or characters in “Twisted Metal” but actually artificially-mutated bad guys.

So, long story short Wade mutates and has super powers but looks like a pasty-white girl who fell asleep on the beach all afternoon drunk off Malibu. Ajax says he has the cure (I always thought Robert Smith did), Wade believes him because why not? Ajax injures him and leaves but Wade just ain’t gonna go out like no punk.
He won’t face his woman because his face looks like a pizza. I told Hank if he ever gets disfigured, I will always love him. Please just come to me with your fugly, face of nightmares.

So, Wade’s gonna find himself some Ajax. With help from his friend Weasel (T. J. Miller), who is a bartender to mercenaries, Wade becomes Deadpool, wears an intricate, masked wet suit and starts tearing shit up looking for the dish soap man. He also lives with a horny old blind woman named Blind Al. Then a whole bunch of other stuff happens – if you’re still with me and haven’t watched the movie then watch it and find out for yourself. This ain’t Wikipedia.

Deadpool is the ridiculous, anti-hero X-Man, the one who embarasses Colossus (a big, shiny, weirder, sterling silver goodie two-shoes T-1000) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (whatever the hell that means because she’s definitely an emo Sinead O’Connor), who want him to join their little team. Deadpool is a nice change of pace for the other superheroes I’ve seen in films or heard Hank talk about with his cohorts.

If you are really into comic books and/or all this superhero stuff, I understand why you’re excited. I’m not really into anything other than alcohol and being left alone so I don’t get it but that’s fine. For those who aren’t way deep into crusaders or maybe have promised their life to someone who is, it’s an entertaining film. It’s ridiculous, hilarious and a great escape.

We live in a society where grown men are obsessed with superheroes. Fake characters draped in spandex and mystery. Deadpool makes fun of that. I was a few glasses of wine deep at the end of the film and typically by then my blood alcohol levels causes me to turn on the characters but I still liked Mr. Pool, mocker of Superheroes.

He said: I don’t know what Mama Price is talking about. I thought we were watching “The Dead Pool.” Jim Carrey singing “Welcome to the Jungle.” Clint Eastwood shooting Qui Gon Jinn with a spear gun. Make my day.
Anyhow, I recently watched that other similarly-titled movie, “Deadpool,” for the second time. This movie is a redemption for the character, having been horribly portrayed in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in 2009. Thanks to the rebooted timeline in the X-Men universe with “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the slate was wiped clean, allowing Ryan Reynolds to do justice to the Merc With a Mouth. Not only did Reynolds and 21st Century Fox redeem themselves, Deadpool may be Reynolds’ signature role.

'Deadpool' is available everywhere now.

‘Dead pool’ is available everywhere now.

Mama Price summed up the plot pretty well. Mercenary with a heart of gold meets badass hot chick, falls in love, gets cancer, undergoes experimental treatment that’s really designed to create super slaves, is hideously deformed, super powered and left for dead, then goes on a hilariously bloody rampage to find the man responsible and cure his deformity. Of all the current-gen Marvel films, Deadpool is one of the best because it perfectly captures the essence of the character, which is no small feat given the copious violence and fourth-wall breaking for which Deadpool is known. The filmmakers wisely rely on Reynolds’ comedic and physical skills, tailor-made for the character, and don’t try to shoehorn too much into the story. With the exception of Loki, most of Marvel’s films have notoriously under-developed villains, and Deadpool is no exception. However, it works to the movie’s benefit here, allowing Deadpool and his gags to take center stage for the bulk of the film.

Like all Marvel films, Deadpool has a teaser at the very end of the credits which sets up the sequel (and promises a Marvel fan favorite character), but it’s done in a genius way that will be immediately familiar to anyone who’s seen “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” If this is Fox’s attempt at creating a larger “X-Men” universe similar to what Disney is doing with the “Avengers” crew, I am really curious to see how it plays out. It’s hard to see Deadpool mixing with the current crop of X-Men films, but I said the same thing about Disney’s characters before I saw “The Avengers.” Fox upped the violence factor since Deadpool, with some brutal scenes in “X-Men: Apocalypse” and the upcoming “Wolverine” installment rumoured to be R-rated, so we may be seeing an R-rated “X-Force” with Deadpool, Cable, Wolverine, and friends before too long. If Reynolds can be the RDJ of the Fox Marvel universe, comic book movie fans like me have a lot to be excited about.

Review: Ryan Reynolds Shines As ‘Green Lantern’ (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)

Review: Ryan Reynolds Shines As ‘Green Lantern’ (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)

As we all know, the superhero film has become a Hollywood staple over the past several years and as a fan, you never really know what you are in for when you sit down to take the latest one in. One of the latest feature-film adaptations of a DC Comics property is ‘Green Lantern’. Growing up, I stuck mostly to the more mainstream characters in the DC Universe, such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, The Wonder Twins and the adventures of the Justice League. That isn’t taking anything away from the Green Lantern, I was just more into the more notable characters. What I discovered as the film neared it’s theatrical release is that many of my peers were huge fans of the Green Lantern. It was their excitement that captivated me and got me equally excited for the project. However, I did try to steer clear of any trailers or promotion that might spoiler the fun.

'Green Lantern'

For the uninitiated, director Martin Campbell’s ‘Green Lantern’ centers an unsuspecting and impulsive test pilot named Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) who lives on the edge and finds himself struggling to find his true calling. An encounter with a dying alien quickly up-ends his already tumultuous life. Jordan quickly finds himself as the newest recruit for and elite force of peacekeepers known as the Green Lantern Corps. There is little time for Hal Jordan to adjust to his new life as he and this unique group of galaxy defenders find themselves facing their greatest threat, a new and seemingly unstoppable force known as Parallax. As this new evil threatens to destroy Earth, and the universe for that matter, Hal Jordan discovers that our fate lies in his hands.

Not knowing what I was in for, I sat down to take in the flick with no real expectations clouding my mind. What I was surprised with was the quick pace and the rich back story of the characters. As I mentioned before, I had discovered that many people I knew were VERY into the “Green Lantern” and just getting a glimpse of this very layered universe for the first time was pretty exciting. As for our leading man, Ryan Reynolds, we all know that he is no stranger to the superhero genre with outings in as Hannibal King in “Blade: Trinty” and Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” There is little argument that he is almost custom built for roles like these with his good looks, chiseled physique and perfectly timed, on-screen wit. His previous roles were the build-up to a great role as a title character. It is his great personality that truly carries the film and provides an undeniable likability that really makes the Hal Jordan character jump from script to screen. You are in his corner from the get-go and you want to have this guy save the world!

His supporting cast is far from shabby, featuring the likes of the stunning Blake Lively (Gossip Girl), Peter Sarsgaard (Orphan), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes), Academy Award® nominee Angela Bassett and Academy Award® winner Tim Robbins. Whether you are a fan of comic book movies or not, you can’t deny that this is one hell of a supporting cast! The film is certainly not as dark as Christopher Nolan’s recent ‘Batman’ franchise which many count as the gold standard for a superhero movie these days. Actually, the film serves as almost a polar opposite as it is a world filled with color and outlandish creatures — which is something that I dig in movies! The only complaint I might have with the film is that we don’t get to see as much of the ‘Green Latern’ mythos as I would have liked. After I saw the film, I did a little research and even picked up some back issues of the comic to learn more about the character. The film definitely got my hungry for more of this particular comic universe. That issue aside, what ‘Green Lantern’ provides is a look into a very diverse universe, fast paced action with a sense of humor and an entertaining storyline that both adults and kids can both enjoy.

SCORE: 3.75 OUT OF 5

Special Features on the Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack with Digital copy include:

– Theatrical Feature & Extended Cut Films
– Maximum Movie Mode with PiP
– Ryan Reynolds Becomes Green Lantern
– Universe According to Green Lantern
– WBA Green Lantern Animated Series Promotion
– Digital Enhanced new Justice League book #1

New Stills and Poster For ‘Paperman’ Starring Jeff Bridges, Emma Stone & Ryan Reynolds

Check out some new stills, theatrical poster and trailer for the upcoming dramedy ‘Paperman’ below. The film stars Jeff Daniels, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Lisa Kudrow and Kieran Culkin. The film is slated to open in select theaters on April 23rd, 2010.

Official Synopsis: Paper Man is an inspirational comedic drama about an unlikely friendship between Richard (Jeff Daniels), a failed middle-aged novelist who has never quite grown up and Abby (Emma Stone), a 17-year-old girl whose role in a family tragedy years earlier has stolen away her youth. Both are unsure, both are afraid to take firm steps forward, and both are looking for that special friend—that connection—to help guide them into the future. Since his childhood, Richard has mostly relied on the imaginary one that resides in his head—a costumed superhero known as Captain Excellent (Ryan Reynolds).

At the urging of his wife Claire (Lisa Kudrow), Richard has moved to a Long Island beach community for the winter season in order to overcome his writer’s block. There, Richard meets Abby and hires her as a weekly babysitter, even though he has no children. Their tenuous, new friendship is sparked by Richard’s awe over Abby’s homemade soup and Abby’s enjoyment of Richard’s writing and his attempts at Origami. As the season progresses and the warm, quirky friendship between Richard and Abby grows, the two begin to share with each other their dreams and life hardships. With the coming of spring, Richard and Abby discover there comes a time to let go of the imaginary friends of the past and to embrace the future as a new beginning—just as one would embrace a new and unique friendship.
