      Thanks for the Review Cas. We missed this at the Cinema and were definitely worried that it would be a let-down after the first one, but from this it sounds like it is well worth picking up :thumbsup:

      So the same scene looks different between the Theatrical and the Extended Cut? :eek:

      Didn't see that coming, thanks! :smashin:

      the film is pretty funny but obviously lacks the breakthrough/shock of the first, and at times you can't help thinking that Ryan Reynolds watched the MASK with Jim Carrey a few times as its very a very similar style with swearing, also the main kid cant act to save his life.

      still has a strong supporting cast and some laugh out loud moments 7/10 , original a 9/10 for me

      I thought this was this on par with the first, very very difficult to make a sequel, especially after the first one did so well.

      As above the main kid is a garbage talent, but everything else is spot on, exceeds the first comedy wise I think.

      Nice review Cas , thanks.
      I've watched the US disc a couple of weeks ago and it's superb, loved the movie when I saw it in theaters and still love it.
      For me both movies are excellent !

      Tidy review, Cas.
      It's very good but suffers from the loss of his strap-on wielding partner for jokes/emotion and the, often, overly long scenes with that soul sucking kid that was meant, ironically, to give it some soul.
      But if there's a third outing, count me in.

      I couldn’t work out if he was meant to be purposefully terrible to make us want him to die. It was just so bad, cringe child actor 101 surely it was meant to be ironic, surely?!

      Still I find bad acting painful to watch and anytime he was on it kind of ruined it for me. Either it was meant to be ironic or they were pandering to the younger demographic, perhaps a bit if both.

      I think that I have said this before but Deadpool 1 was basically a comedy, Deadpool is not. Deadpool 2 is a lot more serious but Deadpool himself is still Deadpool. That's what I really liked about this film. I personally enjoyed the film very much and I want to get the disc but just like D1, there is just a little too much *&%$ for me to bring it home.

      Interesting what Cas mentions about the 2 cuts having different colour/HDR grading. If I ever do watch it again it gives me even more reason to watch the Super duper cut.

      not a patch on the 1st. dp1 9.5/10 dp2 6.5, maybe the super-duper cut will add a point or 2?

      the fat kid was annoying the sh*t outta me all the way through the movie

      I think the PQ review is mostly spot on. Overall I didn't see any 4K sharpness. Sometimes it felt like watching a 1080p Blu-ray.

      The super cut makes for a more balanced movie in my opinion... Feels a lot less rushed.

      Just finished it, first time watching the film. I enjoyed it immensely, it easily passed the six (and ten) laugh test.

      Looked and sounded great too.:D

      SOE refers to motion smoothing and frame interpolation technologies incorporated into TVs.

      How is a 24p 4K bluray supposed to exhibit this phenomenon?

      It should be your TV or possbily some scenes were shot super fast like Mad Max Fury Road.

      Can you post the timecode so that I can check?

      Anyone know if the Steelbook from HMV comes with the Super Duper cut?

      The steelbook from HMV is all 4 discs in a standard steelbook, which is much more attractive on your shelf than the fatbook even if the cover are is an acquired taste on the steelbook.

      So yes, super-duper cut all the way.

      Just finished watching this, I've been waiting for ages for this disc to come out. I was worried that being the second Deadpool movie it wouldn't be as good but I needn't have worried it was really good. I personally enjoyed it much more than the last Thor film I didn't like the comedy in that it seemed a bit forced and not very funny but the comedy in this worked much better for me.
      Watched it on UHD Blu Ray and the extended cut, couldn't be happier and luckily this Marvel movie came from Fox so no Disney soundtrack nonsense.
      Now I'm looking forward to Deadpool 3.

      Watched the theatrical cut on 4k and was a bit disappointed. Reminded me of Nolan's Batman trilogy in terms of the image. Way too many soft shots.

      Still looks 'nice', but it doesn't look as good as it could...
