+Chris Sewell​ I know where your bad karma went. In the last 6 days, I have gotten a sinus infection, the flu, pneumonia (sinus infection drained to my lungs), and found out my car has a cracked head gasket.

Five weird things movie biz bloggers are getting wrong about Deadpool, or whatever other obnoxious title fits here.

Surprise! Deadpool is a massive box office success already. That means movie bloggers are scrambling to explain why. Only it's not a surprise, and the movie blogger commentary is almost universally terrible. I'm not usually the type to write stuff like this, but here we go.

Point One: Just think of how much better this movie would have done if we weren't all suffering from superhero movie fatigue.

This is the most successful Rated R movie in years and you think it would have been better if people weren't going to the theater to see superhero movies? Last I checked, Disney was still trying to invent a better way to count all the money they have been making from Marvel. You're confusing fatigue with people not going to see the garbage superhero movies that have come out recently, a narrative you tried pushing with Fantastic Four instead of just admitting it was awful.

Point Two: Deadpool is an X-Men movie spinoff

I get why you would think that if your only experience with Deadpool was this movie. That doesn't make you less wrong, though. Deadpool is its own movie in the same universe, just like in the comics. You'll note Colossus in Deadpool is nothing at all like Colossus in the X-Men movies, and that's deliberate. Also, the constant mocking of the X-Men movies (especially Wolverine Origins) should have been a clue. Focus up, people.

Point Three: Disney Marvel would have done it better

What you actually mean here is Disney Marvel would have made it PG-13 and it would have been a greater commercial success. This is wrong for several reasons.

First, the fans who helped bring this monster to life would not have been quite so eager if they felt the film was losing its edge to make Disney happy. I'm not saying this movie had to be vulgar to be good, in fact there was a whole lot of this movie where the "raw" stuff felt almost tacked on, like it was there because it had to be. I'm also not saying I would change one minute of the movie I saw, because I wouldn't.

Second, Marvel is all about not "wasting time" doing origin stories right now. That would have been a mistake here. A huge, huge mistake.

Third, and really the most important, the writing made this movie. It lived beyond the hype because it was so brilliantly written. I love me some Disney Marvel, but nothing from their camp of writers this past year hit as hard as Deadpool did. I'm honestly not convinced they could have pulled this off.

Point Four: Deadpool only did well because they struck a nerve with the marketing

AND?! The correct question to ask here is "Why the hell isn't everyone hurling money at this marketing company?" and not "Would anyone know about this movie if the marketing wasn't so clever?"

Also, you're missing the "slow burn" a movie like this would have gotten with mediocre marketing. It's still an amazing film, and word of mouth would have closed the gap over a week or two. It's not exactly unprecedented.

Point Five: The sequel will be better

Pump those brakes, Captain Obvious. Saying that a successful movie will be more successful with more resources is just lazy writing. It's also not even close to a universally true statement.

This movie was a labor of love for everyone involved. The budget was something like $58m and every penny was well spent. Assuming more money would make a better movie, especially now that Fox will be looking to it for actual revenue, is probably not a thought based in reality.

This is one of the few times that I am glad that Apple has the market clout they do.
 
Well said, Mr. Cook.

I will not voice my own opinion of this article due to the apparent policies the company mentioned within this page has concerning people voicing their opinions and I do not have the resources to defend those opinions.
As such, I will drop this out here purely for the information of anyone interested in this cause.

I will simply state that there is one product that I now will never use again. Period.

Alan Rickman is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with. He is also, one of the loyalest and most supportive people I've ever met in the film industry. He was so encouraging of me both on set and in the years post-Potter. I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that. I know other people who've been friends with him for much much longer than I have and they all say "if you call Alan, it doesn't matter where in the world he is or how busy he is with what he's doing, he'll get back to you within a day".

People create perceptions of actors based on the parts they played so it might surprise some people to learn that contrary to some of the sterner(or downright scary) characters he played, Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny. And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass.

As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.

If you have a Audi or a Volkswagen, this is the place to go!!!! I have a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta, and I have been working with the team at Motorkars for a couple of years now. I have had them do several repairs over the last couple of years, and I cannot stress enough how well I have been treated! They have saved me a ton of money versus the dealer, their customer service is better than almost any place I have been, and they genuinely take pride in what they do. I have been able to call with any questions I may have, and have received advice on what to do and what not to do. I have always felt well taken care of, the repairs have been great, and they have always gone the extra mile to take care of me. For instance, the most recent repair was done 2 days early and less than quoted because they were able to stay late and finish it. This saved me not only the cost of 2 days worth of rental cost but also a ton of time getting things organized.
