I saw Wolverine on Friday night. I wasn't expecting much from the reviews, but it was an enjoyable, decent popcorn flick. The fanboys/girls will throw a shitfit over it but I would see another movie like it. Hugh Jackman is great as Wolverine, and I liked Reynolds as Wade Wilson and whoever the hell played Gambit (a character I usually don't like). Schreiber was decent as Sabretooth.
The script was absolutely shit, although there were some genuinely funny moments, but the film did too much of the looking up into the sky and screaming "Nooooo!" kind of thing. My favorite line: "They finally figured out how to shut you up!"
For another spinoff, I want to see not a Deadpool film and a Gambit film, but a Deadpool & Gambit film. I want a film that's half metafiction and half buddy road movie, and another half badass action flick. I want Gambit as he's walking away from Three Mile to find Deadpool in the rubble, I want Deadpool's costume, and I want the two to randomly go around on adventures, spoofing comic book movies with Deadpool's irreverent humor and spending half their time blowing up shit and half their time making fun of pop culture. I want the format to be halfway between Burn Notice and Ferris Bueller's Day Off in that Deadpool often stops to address the audience, and I really want a fight scene in which Deadpool is talking into the camera and another angle shows Gambit looking over in between punches to see Wilson speaking into thin air. And I want an interrogation scene, one where in the middle Deadpool uses a gruff voice and barks, "WHERE'S RACHEL?!" to the confusion of the suspect.
But that's just me.
Last night was awfully crazy, I wish I taped it... but enough about that.
I slept til 3:45 today and had the opportunity to meet Nancy Pelosi at a huge mansion thanks to a friend. She impressed me much more in person than she does through the media. I've been studying for the past two hours and should probably get to bed, although I would also like to mention that I have some badass new t-shirts featuring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Luigi, and Batman. So yeah.
