“Maximum effort!”

From: Deadpool

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Deadpool/Wade Wilson

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes the first Deadpool film, which was released in 2016. Deadpool is Wade Wilson,a Marvel anti-hero noted for being one of the funniest comic book characters ever created. Most of the humor is derived from the fact that he knows he’s in a comic book and he breaks the fourth wall often because of it.

The quote comes a couple of times in the movie but the first time it’s uttered is just before the freeway action scene. Deadpool (played by Ryan Reynolds) is sitting atop a network of freeways while waiting for Ajax, the man who gave him his powers. He turns to the camera and talks to the viewer for a bit before he notices Ajax’s convoy driving close. He then delivers the quote before jumping into battle.

Geek wisdom:  Always give it your all with whatever you do. This is usually the best thing you can do to achieve your goals. And even if you don’t succeed, at least you’ll know you did your best.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
