I'll speak for myself, but to have a discussion about anything one must give a reason more than just "I don't wanna".  So while I, of course, understand that not everything is someone's cup o' tea, if they speak up in a thread to say "I don't wanna" I at least expect to hear why.  Why don't you want to see it, as it's not obvious to everyone. 

Diversity of opinion is all fine and good, but it doesn't just mean saying "no" when someone else says "yes".  That's not diversity.  Defend your position so that others understand, otherwise it's just another "no" that is easily ignored in a thread obviously celebratory about a specific subject.

Matt,

If you don't allow for a diversity of opinion in a thread then the thread just becomes an "amen corner" - do you REALLY want THAT?

Marc

I'll add that if you never saw the first film and have no intention of seeing the sequel, then saying that your "opinion" about the merits of the film carries just as much weight as those who have seen it (good or bad) is just wrong.  Not having seen the first makes me question why you'd even speak in a thread about the sequel considering you have no ground upon which to stand. Far, far, FAR from an "amen corner". You admittedly know nothing about the franchise but nonetheless feel well equipped to claim someone isn't accepting your differing opinion...how?  Why?  Based on...what exactly? And then have the gall to play the "diversity" card?  

Seriously?

Hmmmm, diversity of opinion? I have witnessed a similar
thing on a closed Prog Rock group, someone actually
joined and then proceeded to say why they didn`t like
it! Isn`t life too short to offer opinions on
topics/sites they have no interest in?

P.S. I`m just off to join a Rap site and tell them why i
hate it!

As a "comic book guy", I get asked by everyone why I haven't seen Deadpool. My brother is surprised because he knows that Colossus is my favorite member of the X-Men. I just don't like the character. That said, I will defend the spot-on costume and characterization based on the trailers. My brother has the blu ray of the first one so you never know...

Marc, as mentioned by Matt R, you haven't actually offered anything more substantive than "I hate Deadpool." You admit you haven't seen the first film. Naturally,  your allowed to not want to see it, but if your criticism amounts to little more than "I hate Deadpool," then what is the point of commenting other than to be negative? 

I mentioned in other threads before, when this topic comes up, that I don't feel compelled to go to the sports message board and post "I hate sports" just because I am not a fan. In fact, I avoid that area precisely because I am not a sports fan.

New (final) trailer.  This looks hilarious. It may be as entertaining as the original:


Though, it makes me feel even worse for the rough treatment my beloved Fantastic Four gets in the movies when SHATTERSTAR seems pretty faithful to the comics version.  Only thing they could have done better is if his hands and feet were weird...

I will go and see this movie for the universe joke in the trailer alone.

The first movie was a good, no nonsense, entertaining film. I have found a few people that didn't like it, but these are the same people that didn't like Mad Max: Fury Road. I am looking forward to DP2 as it will be a movie without a moral message and only ask me to enjoy myself while watching. Perhaps my disconnect from the character from comic books is a boon.
