Deadpool is a movie that's probably going to have a moderate-to-large effect on movies going forward — mostly because it carries an R rating, which is different, and because it made a lot of money, which is attention-grabbing to movie executives.
Joining me to talk about all of that in this week's episode is Central Track film critic Javier Fuentes. We also discuss whether this movie has enough substance to merit that kind of impact.
The answer: Either “kind of” or “maybe,” I'm not sure. Listen in as Javier and I try to figure it out.
