yeah i think about half of the theatre got it at my showing. couple laughs from the crowd with me laughing extremely loudly which probably confused alot of people. one of the best lines in the movie. which i think VJ had some very good ones for as few as he had.

I went to see the new Xmen movie this weekend. I thought it was very good, but I didn't really like some of the story (I can't comment on it since I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it yet).

Also, I don't like that they made Juggernaut a mutant, and they showed that Beast's blue coloration was part of his mutant-ness. In the comic book, Juggernaut's powers are derived from a mystical stone, and Beast is blue because of a science experiment gone awry. Beast's powers make him hairier than most and give him great agility, but they don't make him blue. I suppose the reason they did this is to have the movie appeal more to those that aren't long-time fans of the comics, but nonetheless, as a long-time fan of the comics, I didn't like those parts. (Also, I don't know the Phoenix sagas that well, but I thought Jean Grey's phoenix powers were of some alien origin, not locked away inside her?)

All-in-all, I give it an 8/10. The story and effects were very good, but it would have been a 10/10 had they stuck more to some of the original stuff, and the story issues I cannot mention.

All in all, I think it's very deserving of being a part of the X-men series of films. Though the title hints that this is the last installment of the series, they leave the end very open for a fourth.

9/10 ;-D


I don't think the part at the end is necessarily leaving it open for a fourth, but I have heard that there are a couple movies in the works centering around Magneto and Wolverine. Those are both very deep characters with a lot of history in the books, so they could go anywhere with those films. I would want to see a Magneto movie about his younger days during the Holocaust or one with Asteroid M, and I would like the Wolverine movie to center around his time spent in the Far East.

yeah, Phoenix was an alien entity, but it's kind of hard to have the X-men go visit some alien world and explain all that

Yeah, that part would have been more difficult, but it wouldn't have been too hard to keep the Beast stuff consistent. It may have been less believable to go into the Juggernaut stuff, but at the same time, it would have taken like 30 seconds of explanation, and how "believable" can a movie be where you have mutants with superpowers?

Anyway, this is only an issue to a pretty small portion of the population, and the producers have to cater to the larger audience, but that's why it got an 8 from me.

i think that's likely to be the route a Wolverine movie would go, and it would probably be pretty good, although i wouldnt mind seeing it center around the Weapon X storyline either

Yeah, these were some of the problems I had too. Juggernaut is not a mutant and Beast's coloring and fur is due to an experiment. And the Phoenix was an alien entity, not some part of Jean's psyche. But, I think they tailor more to the casual fan and the masses since there are more of them (generally speaking) than us die hards.

All in all, good FX, as usual. I give it a 8/10.
