Re: X-Men 3

sweet. I'm on it. THIS weekend! gawd, I hope those tween/teen movie jerks don't get too annoying. They don't even come to the theater to watch, just to throw popcorn, talk and make-out. I mean, some movies are good for making out... but please, people, do NOT distract me from the view of Hugh Jackman. hottie central.

Re: X-Men 3

I loved it. I'm no expert on the comics, but ti seems to me they always balance out the impact of the emotional development with the action stuff, and sometimes movies go too top-heavy on action, or too clumsy on the character. I thought this got the balance - it was exciting and big and popcorn, but at the same time I (almost) shed a little tear at the final Wolverine/Jean Gray scene.

Is it, Kye? It's a bit "dangerous" to say it's a must for every movie fan...

I COMPLETELY disagree. The first two were WAY better than the third one. They tried to introduce way too many characters into the third one, which would have been okay if they would have taken the extra 30 minutes to develop at least some of them. You didn't really get to know the new characters, while some that were already developed were shoved aside.

Did the Nightcrawler actor not want to do the third one? Or was that character just not important to the new director? This is a genuine question, I want to know, I'm not trying to bash on anyone, just curious.

I read somewhere that they cut about 40 some minutes so it wouldn't be as long. If you want devlopment read the novelization of the movie. it explains things better than any movie could.

The actor was willing to do the movie, but they unfortunatly didn't add him to the script. I don't know the exact reason why the actor/charcter wasn't in the movie. The character actually gets a big part in the X-Men game that has/is coming out. The reasoning is that he was somewhere else while the events of the movie took place.

I hope my answers made sense, they sounded right in my head.

Re: X-Men 3

I heard that Alan Cumming (Nightcrawler) and Bryan Singer didn't get along at all during the filming of the second installment, and he was purposefully left out of the mix when Singer was still attached. Don't know the truth to this. It's a shame, though, as Nightcrawler was one of the reasons the second film was so good, I reckon.

I'd just like to mention Halle Berry's hair in the third movie. I wish I could get my hair to look like that.

Re: X-Men 3

Well I guess there are a thousand different type of movie fans. Not all of them will like the movie. That's why I meant.

Re: X-Men 3

There aren't going to be anymore X-Men films, though they are in the process of doing Magneto and Wolverine prequels.

I've now heard / read that if enough people watch it - they'll make another one. Granted - that came from Halle Berry who said she didn't want to do anymore X-films.... but hey - whatever.


This film is one of those that's kind of 'weird' - I've seen it 3 times and my opinion doesn't exactly change, so much as I 'rethink' things each time.

Don't get me wrong - I loved it - namely that the X-Men get to do "X-Men-y" things - flying, fighting, etc - stuff the X-Men should do based on what's in the comics, etc... ((I still don't understand why Storm hasn't flown before now - they levitated everyone else in the 1st two.))

... ahem - anyway - the special effects kind of bowl you over on the first viewing and there's so much to pay attention to that it's hard to get everything the first time through. I mean, you can get the major story elements, but mostly - you get *SFX* everywhere. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Subsequent viewings lend to the story elements being easier to grasp and they start to not quite hold together as cohesively as you might prefer. There's a lot of 'little' story bits that are lost in the major arc - ie: Rogue-Bobby-Kitty. That story was rather lost amidst all the Phoenix pieces.

Also - toooooo many characters with itty bitty minor parts.

But - I still liked the movie quite a lot.

My one big question though: how does Phoenix make the entire top of Wolverine's outfit disappear, but she leaves his pants and boots?

Keep it at 3. Any more and it won't be a 'trilogy' :lol:

I wouldn't mind seeing more X-men related movies, but if they go the way it seems they might go... we'll be seeing a lot of one character as opposed to the team. I like the team dynamic.
