    I didn't want to clog up the DVD thread with this stuff (delete if you wish mods, just thought it warranted it's own thread)

    Personally I thought the movie was very well done considering the bumpy road the production had. I know alot of people are blaming Brett "Rush Hour" Ratner for "ruining" the franchise, but the simple fact was by the time he came onboard there was not much he could change.


    Juggernaut the Mutant

    People whinged about Juggernaut being affected by Leech and knocking himself out by running into a wall. For every 1 comic book fan who complains about Jugg's being made a mutant there would be 10 non-fans who wouldn't understand the whole Crimson Gem of Cyttorak storyline. I mean, I'm a comic book fan and I still find it stupid!

    Jean and the Phoenix

    I thought they gave the Phoenix a good "realistic" definition and explaination. Personally I would have liked to have seen her burst into flames at some point (either the battle with Xavier or at Alcatraz) but that's just nit-picking.

    I'll post more as I go :)

    hopefully in the next movie, Jena Grey will be back like in the comic, Characters die in one episode then just reappear within the next few issues

    I doubt they'll bring Jean back.... these movies are supposed to be "based in reality". Even the most fantastic things are given somewhat logical explainations (logical in the sense of being explainable by their powers)

    I've heard alot of fanboys saying crazy stuff like "Jean must have re-moleculised Scott in a safe place, he'll come back and take over control of the school and then they'll do the Apocalypse story cause Angel is there and they can bring Cable back from the future" etc etc etc

    this thread has been long overdue! i saw dave chapelle's block party the other day. i thought it would be like his tv show, i.e. hilarious gags, but it was mainly just rnb and rap music with a few jokes in between. cant complain since i saw it for free though! :D

    I really enjoyed it.

    I would like to do some other reading about X-men stories, and get a better Idea of it all..

    (Off to wiki I go)

    I dislike the idea of this thread. Namely becuase of the fact that someone could have seen one movie and then suddenly someone brings up another and ruins it for someone else.. Any chance of the title being changed the to the movie in discussion? I.e. 'The official movie thread 'Xmen3', Changing it appropriately?

    I figured by plastering the warning in the topic and boldly in the first post, people wouldn't read on unless willing to be spoiled about ANY movie

    ie, I didn't want to create a new thread for every movie thus flooding the forum

    One thing I just realised.....

    The little girl who Mystique turned into.... I thought she looked familiar, she played the young Nancy in Sin City

    Which is unfortunate for those who haven't seen every movie on earth, but wouldn't mind discussing ones they have seen.

    Well, lets resolve this so all parties win & i am not on Todds' back..
    How about, if you plan on changing movie or whatever, you put a post with the movie title, maybe even a bit larger than usual and then discuss it in posts below. Sorry for getting on nerves. :D:)

    Sounds like a plan..... I sorta figured this thread would just follow the flow of new movies as they came out. Basically once X3 is done with the topic would naturally move onto something new

    I guess you do have a point there, actually.. Or even just some mention of a movie change and a bit of a warning, cus fuck knows i will stumble down to a comment about something in the end of a movie i haven't caught yet. Ah well.

    She played the young nancy? But that girl was only about 12. She can't have grown up that much in about 2 years.

    Unless you mean Jessica Alba, which theres no way it was her.
