I just watched X3: The Last Stand last night again, and I think that's my fave; Jean was SO creepy lookin', and the action was just so grand...plus, I love tying up loose ends...(Also, they got Wolverine's powers right this time: no getting knocked out by a bullet nonsense)

I only ever saw BATMAN AND ROBIN once. It was when it first came out ten years ago, and I was only 11 at the time. It didn't occur to me then that I was watching arguably the worst comic book movie ever made and the self-destruction of a franchise.

I bring this up because nine years later, I saw X-MEN: THE LAST STAND. And after seeing that, I can now understand the betrayal people felt after seeing BATMAN AND ROBIN. That movie singlehandedly destroyed everything that Bryan Singer spent two movies building.

First of all, there were too many things going on at the same time. The mutant cure and the Dark Phoenix storylines should have been two separate movies. Characters were killed off randomly, the resolution of Rogue's arch throughout the whole trilogy was negated to an afterthought, huge glaring plotholes were apparent throughout the film, clunky and groan inducing one liners made up the majority of the script, characters began acting unlike themselves, and the whole thing seemed rushed and convoluted so that they can get to the next action sequence.

It was just painful, especially after the second movie, which to me is the best of the three. And the reason it's so perfect is that you can boil it down to one scene that's emblematic of everything X-Men is all about. It's the scene between Col. Stryker and Charles.

"You wanted me to cure your son. Mutation isn't a disease-"
"YOU'RE LYING!!!"

That one reaction says so much about the human race, which is ultimately what the X-Men is all about. Spider-Man is just about some kid growing up. X-Men is about the human race.

If the third movie had a moment like that, then I'd consider it. As of now, it's just a huge disappointment.

1st- cuz, in the end , no sequel can EVER surpass the origional (Unless it was PLANNED from the beggining, Jaws!). Third wasn't AS MUCH of a let down as I thought it would be... but, it still wa a let down. And, I agree... Jean goin' crazy and the Cure shoulda been two seperate flics.

Having fun yet?

That was a great moment, no doubt.
But the groaner in that flick was: "Have you ever tried not being a mutant?"

I feel you're being a bit harsh with 3, all of 'em had their moments...but what do I know- I loved The Fantastic Four as well.

The first one was the best to me. At least that one was a classic X-men vs. Brotherhood story. Some of it was still dumb, but at least the action made sense and the whole thing flowed fairly well.

In the second one I just never really cared. I didn't really see much threat there. The deck was stacked so heavily in the x-men/magneto group's favor that there was just no way they were going to be stopped from saving xavier. I would have liked it better if magneto had stayed and tried to defend the new cerebro camber and had a showdown with the x-men. As it was it was humans vs. mutants and basically just a joke of a battle. Only if the humans had some sentinels on their side would it have been a decent fight.

The third one was laughably bad. The characters were basically reduced to their powers and that's all that remained. Everything else was totally changed for the movie. They really did have a good premise going for them. The cure and a mutant so powerful that they couldn't be controlled are both great storylines, but they bungled the whole thing and it just played out terribly.

From a non comic enthusiest I think they were pretty good action wise but I find it hard to block out images of what could have been

Objectively speaking, yeah, the first was the best, it had the most character going for it. But after the actionfest second, I just said to myself just enjoy the thing for what it is, so the third satisfyed me pretty well...

Fantastic Four didn't have any pretensions though - it was pure comic book, if there is such a thing ;)

X3, on the other hand, had absolutely no idea what it was trying to accomplish and consequently ended up a complete mess.

Edit: The first movie is my favourite. The first scene alone is worth buying the DVD for ;)

X2, because it had a better grasp of the characters (for me, personally, it's always about the characters). X-Men is second-best. X3 was almost as painful as RotS.

I much prefer my version ( http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=8&t=24556).

They were entertaining and top marks to Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman, they were good actors for their roles. Also a lot of the supporting actors did great jobs, you only see them for a few minutes but they portrayed the larger picture well.

But the heart of the X-men was ripped out, mauled, eaten, regurgitated, eaten again, pooped out then smeared on the silver screen.

Entertaining: yes (3rd movie: no)
True to story and characters: Not so much

It could have been far, FAR better.

Of the three, I liked the 1st. They boiled the conflict down to some piddling good Vs evil rather than the comentary of xenophobic human culture and society. Dark Phoenix plot was really messed with beyond recognition and there was so much more to the story of wolverine that making one movie to try and encompass it was foolhardy (like they tried to do in X-men 2)

There may be a 4th (the end of 3rd movie left that open) but if they approach it as they approached the others I sincerely hope not.

3 should have been 2 movies, and should have been done by Bryan Singer.
My personal favourite is the first.
great moment:
Rogue: "Does it hurt?.... when they come out?"
Logan: ".................................Everytime."

But I really love two moments from X2.
Magneto: "You are a god among insects, never let anyone tell you different."

and this scene (defines the whole X-men = mankind):
Nightcrawler: "They say you can imitate anybody? Even their voice?"
Mystique turns and speaks in his voice:
Mystique: "Even their voice."
Nightcrawler smiles
Nightcrawler: "So why not stay disguised all the time? You know.....Look like everybody else?"
Mystique: "Because we shouldn't have to."

You really think so? I thought a large portion of the first two movies was devoted to that, even if it wasn't as overt as it could have been.

What happened? He see your face?


I preferred X2, with the first being a close second. (Oh yeah, first scene in X-men rocked) I knew to lower my expectations for all the movies when they came out; being a 80s-early 90s CB reader. I think X2 brought out just enough characters to have good sub plots and enough action to balance out the film. All of the films seemed to follow the "God Loves, Man Kills" storyline from one of my favorite Graphic Novels. The first film lost out because I just didn't like the ending.

The scene in X2 where Magneto breaks out of his plastic shell was amazing.

X3 just had WAY too much going on. ...and some cure that immediately made mutants lose their powers. C'mon! Shoot 'em and blam, powerless. I didn't think the Jean related scenes were terrible however. I wanted to see maybe the Hellfire Club.

Did anyone else feel that throughout a lot of X3 you just knew they were on a huge production stage?

I agree with the following:

Dark Phoenix Saga should have been one movie.
Jean did look creepy cool.
Bryan should have stayed on to do the third.

So, I'm off to have drinks with Dazzler and Longshot. They're not too busy these days.

I was so glad in X-2 to see Wolverine back to his old killing self. It was sort of weird in the 1st one when he didn't really kill anyone. Also, I am really glad that he left Stryker chained up and walked away at the end. If he'd let him out it would have been so un-Logan.
I agree that the story lines and real plots were really out of kilter and I really didn't like the underlying concept in 3 that Xavier had forced Storm to supress her powers as that seems so contrary to everything he is. He's all about mutants learning self control to be with people.
Anyway, still like 3 the best for 2 scenes. Logan and Jean in the med bay and the end when Logan kills Jean ( though not exactly comic accurate definitely emotionally accurate to the characters)

I loved X2, thought it was the best by far of the three in terms of plot and character.

The first one was good, but felt too rushed and under-baked (mainly due to their having to cut out chunks of the script at the last minute). 3 was the best looking of the 3, beacuse it had the biggest budget. But it also felt too rushed and not very well thought-out (a script written in a week, and a director hired 2 weeks before shooting can do that).

And I thought FF sucked.

No malfunction. Just didn't like the movie. Felt like a mishmash made by a comittee of soccer moms. Michael Chiklis was excellent as Grimm, and Johnny was pretty good (though I forget the actor's name). But Ion Gufford and Jessica Alba were miscast, and Doom was just wrong, top to bottom.

And the story was generic. And the director (coming off of freakin' Babershop) had almost zero visual panache - something I consider to be a prerequisite for a Superhero film.

You may have fouind it entertaining and enjoyable, and that's cool. But I found it heckneyed, corny and a waste of talent and material. At best, I was mildly entertained. Most of the time, I was groaning, and shifting in my seat.

Just didn't like it. The trailers for part 2 look like things may have improved.... but unless I just hear stellar word of mouth, I'm waiting for DVD.

I found the characters to be real and engaging, and that more than made up for the weak plot, IMHO.
Finally, a superhero movie that's just plain FUN, and not leaving me angry, or in a pool of tears!
Plus I can show it to my eight-year old, and that's more than I can say for almost EVERY other superhero movie out there.

Fun and nice I have no problem with. But stupid tunes me out every time. Besides, it's hard for me to buy the "it's for kids" bit when they kept coming up with stupid contrivances to get Alba into her undies - the bridge scene being the most glaring. Not that I mind her in her undies, but it's pushing it, IMO to say "it's a kid's movie... with T&A".

Now I didn't say anyone needed to be covered in blood... don't go putting words in my mouth. I'm not saying it needed to be filled with hardcore violence. The tone was fine. But a better script would have been really nice. The one they had sucked, as did the directing.

And come on, what possible reason, other than T&A was there for her to stip on the bridge? The other guys got to the other side at the exact same time. If you want a cheesy titillation scene, fine, but have a decent reason for it to happen. It was stupid. No excuse.

I really don't understand all the criticism of X3. I've been an X-men fan for 12 years and felt the characterisation was much better in X3. Wolverine finally acting like a tough guy. Cyclops finally being the whiny git he really is. Storm displaying some leadership qualities. Rogue getting some backbone. Professor X showing his machiavellian side.
Compare to X2 where Stryker and mastermind were basically completely altered, and Lady Deathstrike didnt even have lines. Storm in the first two films was a wallflower and Wolverine strutted around like a male model. Get some perspective.
And as for too much going on - I personally felt the first two films had nowhere near enough happening. Not for X-men films. X3 was much nearer the mark all round, and laid some interesting foundations for future plot developments (if the franchise continues I predict Apocalypse, Onlsaught, the mutant massacre, and Magneto turning good). It's my favourite. Bryan singer is an over-rated hack.

Why did I like Days of Future Past?
maybe i liked its retro looks history
the movie is very well shot
actors from both generations
the Quicksilver scene


btw there is a new trailer

Hmmm...does The Wolverine count as an X-Men movie? Once Logan got his healing powers back, he was totally at his ass-kicking best!

In many ways, though, I'm leaning towards Days Of Future Past, even though they didn't really do it right re the Sentinels - those things were just too damn good in the movie. With such capabilities they should've been able to wipe out the mutants with relative ease.

I also can't decide between the movie version and the Rogue Cut (I waited for this before buying the DVD) - and I was highly annoyed that Charles' resurrection and Magneto's regaining of his powers weren't dealt with. Plus there's a time discontinuity between DOFP and The Wolverine; in the coda Charles and Erik seemed to be talking about the Sentinels, this being given further gravitas by the ad being shown for Trask Industries, whereas DOFP is set some 30 years later.

I did, however, love the scene where Logan's remonstrating with the Mafia (?) thugs and he pops his claws, expecting to see the adamantium blades...forgetting that 1973 Logan doesn't have the adamantium yet! (Not, of course, that that stopped him from kickin' ass once again - two things you can count on Logan to be are a) consistent and b) reliable!)
