Well, I just watched X-men 3. It was an alright movie, nothing spectacular. The best part of the entire movie was stolen right from an internet sensation.  That's right, the Juggernaut actually says "Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut, bitch."  I would recommend going to see it matinee, but don't pay full price.

Yeah... the borrowed line from the net was hot. As for the rest of it...

Complaints.

 
Archangel was only in it for about 5 minutes.
Juggernaut was a watered down version of himself.
Nightcrawler wasn't in it.
Professor X dies.
Magneto is gimped.
Wolverine didn't get his adamantium ripped out.
Phoenix sucked ass.
I was kinda sure I saw Colossus for a second, but it was really just a faggot.
Marrow was a fat ugly dude.
No fucking sentinels.
They introduced the Murlocs, but no Gambit?
 


Good things about the movie.

 
I would say seeing Rebecca (I don't care about her enough to spell her name correctly) Romijn-Stamos naked, but I don't think she is that hot.

Beast was the coolest part of the movie.  


I will get into more detail oriented stuff when I have people to argue with. I don't wanna give too much of it away.

I went. It was pretty cool. The best part was that me and 8 friends of mine all dressed up as different Mutants to go to the movie. It was hilarious and awesome. I was wolverine. Pictures will come eventually.

 The biggest issue I have with all of the X-Men movies is the total lack of Gambit.

Oh and for the record, this didn't really bother me much at all.

 I think a lot of people aren't going to like this movie because a lot of the favorite characters die, and thats unpopular I guess. Personally I loved Dr. X, Jean, Cyclops and all that, but it doesn't make it a bad movie cause they died. I heard some people behind me complaining "They killed Dr. X. You can't do that. You just can't do that. This movie is retarded." Bah!

 I would be okay with them killing Xavier as long as they did it tastefully.

In the comics Phoenix flew to the center of the sun because she was too scared of her powers. Do you really think that Wolverine's claws would kill her? That was gay. 



The events in the movie make me think that they are leading up to Apocolypse.

 
Why introduce a character like Archangel so briefly if this is the last X-men movie?

Mutants lost their powers... Apocolypse restored powers in the comic books... Archangel was one of the orginal 4 horsemen.

Rogue will go to Muir Island to get her powers back, and she will find Mystique... she will learn that Mystique (who will also become one of the horsemen) is her step mother.

Archangel will have metal wings.

Gambit may show up because of the Murloc slaughter that took place on Alcatraz in the previous movie, since he was leader of them in the first place... This will open up a back story between Gambit and Storm.

Magneto will be a good guy in the new movie. He will use Apocolypse to get his powers back.

 Well I think the point was that when Wolverine killed her, she sunk out of being Phoenix and was being Jean again, and she allowed for Wolverine to kill her.

I'm not sure your hypothesis of whats gonna happen with getting the powers back. At the end of the movie they implied magnetos powers were already coming back slowly, as if they were hinting the cure was only temporary.
Also, did you see the scene at the end of the credits? Seems Dr. Xavier is still alive, and that he transfered his conciousness into the guy that was just a vegetable in the hospital.

I saw it tonight, and  GODDAMMIT WHEN WILL I LEARN TO STAY IN THE THEATRE UNTIL THE CREDITS ARE DONE ROLLING!? 


I thought it was good, not great. It's the kind of movie I'm probably only ever going to watch once, and it's not like I'm a huge X-Men fanboy, so I was satisfied, although  I thought it was a bit of a sell-out that in the end Wolverine and Beast used the cure against Magneto. They were all against it and then they use it on each other, laaaaaaame.

This movie did not dissapoint.

I tried looking like Wolverine but looked more like Bill from King of the Hill. I think that means I'm out of shape MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

Making all the 'bad guy' mutants goth was stupid though. Acupunture Man's special move 'The Cuddle' was definitely a winner!

http://imdb.com/title/tt0499519/

X-Men was originally contracted for 5 feature movies, I don't know if these 2 counts as number 4 and 5 or if there'll be 2 more after them.

And I think this review sums up the movie well:

I'm pretty sure that all the younger mutants in the movie (ie. Rogue, Iceman, Kitty, Pyro) are all contracted for 2 more movies, but the bigger name people, like Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry et al aren't. Which might be why they  killed off many of the older characters.

Hmm, maybe, but Ian McKellen and Hugh Jackman are also contracted, for Magneto and Wolverine (respectively), though I suppose if the younger mutants are also in those movies, it would satisfy their contracts. However, I doubt that this will be the last X-Men movie, "The Last Stand" really doesn't mean much (Final Fantasy lol).
