Really? I enjoyed all 3 X-men, though aren't parts of all super hero/comic movies ridiculous? Anyway Superman looks decent, I am also looking forward to Spiderman 3

xmen 3 was just not well made. it had horribly clunky transitions from one scene to another, horrible dialogue, etc. bret ratner is like a kid that thought up "ooh, that scene would be COOL!" "oh wait, and lets take it further and he does that too that'll be COOLER!" and just patched up a bunch of cool looking scenes without thinking about the other things that make a movie work, like uh ... everything else.

I saw the preview on Yahoo trailers and it does look pretty damn stupid. What happened to Nicolas Cage anyway?

Nic Cage's movies have really gone down hill, although World Trade Center looks really good. I guess I liked The Weather Man also.

I like National Treasure. Not great but fine for what it was. Lord of War was OK to.

I thought The Weather Man was a borefest; garbage rendered on celluloid at the expense of the two hours it stole from my life. I hated it.

yeah i thought The Weather Man was pretty boring too.

Lord of War was good.

for me, it's either all or nothing with nicolas cage. i either like him a lot (Snake Eyes, Lord of War, Matchstick Men) or hate him (Con Air, Windtalkers).

What about Adaptation? Probably the only Nicholas Cage movie I really liked.

what about Raising Arizona?

i'll admit to liking Face-Off and the Rock, but i've just never seen the appeal of Nick Cage: Action Hero

Yeah, Raising Arizon was very good. Back when the Cohen Bros. were making good movies. I knew i'd left a few oldies out, but recently he's been disappointing.

ConAir? yeah, worst southern accent EVER.
