Secondly, I saw X3 yesterday and I was seriously dissapointed.
If there's anything I learned from the 3rd X-Men installment, it's this: bad mutents are all generic punk ass teenagers who all have the ability to leap high into the air.
Seriously, this movie was nowhere near what I expected. I had a feeling it was going to be bad when I read all over the place that they were trying to stick close to the comics a la Sin City. Well, congrats to those hardcore fans that loved it, but I was dissapointed.
There were too many plot points to worry about, along with the introduction of just too many new characters. First, you have the Phoenix "Dissintegrate you with my MIND" story line, Rogue's cure seeking story line, Magneto's desire for power still going strong story line, the Angel story line (which they gave us a cock tease about ... damnit, I liked Angel! He looked like a pretty boy American Draco, and I had to admit even I liked that. Men + wings = hawt in my book), Beast and his Mutant thing ... there was a lot going on, it wasn't well organized.
I felt Famka was cheated in this film. If it wasn't for the kick ass special effects, her monstrous staring would not have been effective. I don't really know the Dark Phoenix saga, but she seemed a little too zoned out for me. Granted, I'm sure she was trying not to unleash her WTF power, but that really doesn't translate well on film. Her dual personalities meant that one was a raging sex fiend and the other was a cry baby? How appropriate ... I think.
"D'you know who I am? I'm Juggernaut, bitch!" ... ok, I just burst the fuck out laughing at that part. Mainly because of this video. Does Juggernaut really say that in the comics? Wow ...
And since when did bad mutant females look like dykes? Y HALLO THER PRINCE. Yes, Prince was in this film folks. What an interesting choice for the character Arclight (whom I've never heard of, I'll admit). Mystique losing her powers made me angry. She was soooo awesome.
There were a lot of "Why didn't they just ... " moments. Like, seriously, why make Magneto use up all his power to move the Golden Gate bridge if he could've taken a speed boat or helicopter? I saw no reason why he really needed to uproot the bridge. Perhaps just to cause havok, but I dunno, just seemed like a pointless reason to toss in some special effects. I did however happen to like at the end when they showed them rebuilding the bridge. Lolz. Bridge got pwnd.
I'm glad Scott is dead. That fucker was annoying. But Jean and The Professor, too? Granted, Jean will be back. And if you stay until the end of the credits, you see that there is indeed an opening for a 4th X-Men in which the Professor will be back. But ... ugh. Please, make it better? Bring back Bryan!
I was expecting a lot more, but I was very thrown off by the jumping plot.
I can't wait for the day when I can wake up and say "All I'm going to do is nothing today". That day is only about a week away, my friends. 1 week.
Here's a few photos I've taken over the course of the last few weeks:
I love the meniacle look on your face, Dana. And the little bit of rice on the corner of your mouth.
Oh John ...
