For my birthday, my brother took me to a midnight showing of this movie, and I have to say, I thought it was great! I had my doubts at first, even before footage was available to see (I HATE the director, and am not fond of the writers either), but they were washed away within the first ten minutes of the flick. There were some things that I would have done differently had I made the movie, and some cheesy stuff toward the beginning, but they weren't big enough gripes to ruin it for me. The climax was awesome.

I won't go into ANY details, but I think it was a fitting end to the trilogy. It was better than the first, and on par with the second (maybe even a little better; I'd have to see it again to be sure). I like the fact that (unlike in the first two) you actually get the feeling that nobody will be safe by the end. It had a very 'Wild Bunch' feeling to it for a while.

Go.
See it.
As soon as you can.

That is all...

I am so excited to see it! I am going today i think. I love the other X-men movies and I'm REALLY looking forward to this one. It looks great in the previews and I'm excited that there are some more characters from the comic books...

Oh and Happy Birthday!!!

Cheers

Aww, you don't like Brett? I hear he's very good on set, a little second-guessing, but he gets a lot of opinions which is very refreshing. As far as the writers ... I'm working with Simon on a project right now, he told me a few weeks back that X-3 looks pretty good, although he did admit the final act was somewhat generic, as it is an action movie.

I'm probably going to see it tonight :)

... yes.

But there are going to be 2 more spinoffs probably -- Wolverine and Magneto -- and who knows about a 4th?

All I've heard from places I trust is that it's a big letdown in the story department. If you like the action, fair enough. But apparently the first ten minutes are the best, i.e. the de-aging scene and finding Jean Grey, plus the boy and his wings scene.

Such a shame. Apparently, the writing's fault. Not Brett, which is kinda cool to know.

Peace,
Adam.

Ah, Wolverine is like the coolest character in the history!! Ah, man, he's so hot, I think I'm going to see the movie just because of that.

It sounds like utter crap to me... the first two really were pretty frigging good movies, but they keep bowing down to that idiot Halle Berry just because she won an Oscar. They should have fired her after her stupid demands during the 2ND movie, never mind this one.

It's utter tripe... they used the 'juggernaut bitch' line which is just pathetic, and *Rogue gives her powers away just so she can shack up with that weedy ice dude*??? The fuck???

No frigging way I'm spending money on this crap, I'll happily wait till someone I know rents it, and then if I'm wrong I'll report back here and say "I was wrong, I'll never second-guess a film again before seeing it", but just like with the new Hitchhikers Movie, I'll be *right*, and save myself $15 in the process.

Saw the midnight show. Thought it was pretty good.

Did everyone stay at the end of the credits to see the "secret" scene? Lots of people left in our showing, but I knew ahead of time to stay and it was a good thing I did stay!


I ALWAYS stay. ;)

I thought the movie was fairly good, but movies are so predictable nowadays, ya know. I like Magneto quote in the movie: WE ARE THE CURE...WE ARE THE CURE!!!!! I've been annoying my little brother saying that all day...lol
