    2018 Cult Movie Challenge Week 33: Crown International Week

    The super duper cut is definitely the preferred cut, with a beefed up first act that does a better job establishing the troubled child character, and giving Cable a little bit more to do before the second act starts. Some of Deadpool's lines are altered and the sound mix on the new dialogue doesn't blend perfectly with the original audio, and the movement and expressions of his mask don't always match with them, but whatever.

    I still have a problem…
