TCMP #43 – Deadpool (w/ Javier Fuentes)

Deadpool is a movie that is probably going to have a moderate-to-large effect on movies going forward. Because it carries an R rating, which is different, and made a lot of money, which is attention-grabbing to movie executives. Javier Fuentes sits down with me to discuss all of it. We talk about those implications and whether or not this is a movie with enough substance to merit that kind of impact. The answer is “kind of.” Or “maybe.” We also talk about what lessons can be learned here for people looking to make money off of similar movies in the future.
