The Adam Project: 25 Things You Missed

If there’s one thing we can be sure about in life is that nostalgia sells movie tickets, and we have another case of this with Ryan Reynolds’ latest ‘The Adam Project’ which is packed full of 80s movie references and nostalgia (although I should say it sells Netflix subscriptions instead of movie tickets in this case as it went straight to the streaming platform, but you get what I mean). But not only is it a nostalgia fest with quick quips and jokes slung out by the movie’s star, but it also has a great deal of heart and some emotional scenes that hit you deep in the feels. But, because we don’t want to be sobbing through this video, we are going to take a look at the nostalgia and the movie references that appear throughout the course of The Adam Project.

So in this video we will go through 25 things or so that you might have missed in the movie. These will include references to Ryan Reynolds’ (arguably) most notable work, Deadpool, references to other Marvel characters and the MCU as a whole (and how this movie sparked a theory that is taking the internet by storm), references to some of the movies that inspired it such as Back to the Future Part I and II, STar Wars, Star Trek, The Last Starfighter and Terminator, easter eggs for Face/Off, nods to famous scientist, cameos from famous faces and how another superstar actor was very nearly the lead. These are 25 things you missed in The Adam Project.
