Saw STAY ALIVE the other day. 5/10. Good idea, just not executed all that well.

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.


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


well while the original story was written that way the new ultimate line had changed it to being a part of her from childhood so it isn't that much of a stretch for people who have read the newer retelling of the origin of the xmen. just figured i'd throw my .02 cents in.

I heard it sucked terribly and since i already had it downloaded on divx i gave it a try and shockingly made it through halfway before i turned it off......Boooooooo :-t


There should be a warning on the main menu of Grandma's boy --- Do not attempt to watch unless stoned out of your skull!

Jarhead was real good. Not a fan of Jake Douchenhall but he didn't bother me much in this one. Thumbs up here. ;-D

I've described this as the best and absolute worst movie of all time. It's painful to watch just how stupid this movie is ... but then again, I don't have robot eyes. :-b

Haven't seen this yet, but I read the book. It was ... interesting to say the least. I'll see it eventually.

I really liked Jarhead too. I'll probably look to buy it on DVD. I usually don't do that nowadays if I didn't think it was great.
