x-men origins

Postby Yoda » Thu Apr 30, 2009 11:38 am

Getting terrible reviews. I was pumped for the movie but I'm not so sure if I will pay to see it in the theater. I also heard that Hugh Jackman is jacked in this movie. I wonder if he went on roids?

I don't have much interest in this film, even though I liked X-Men and Wolverine as a kid. I'm just not sure how compelling of narrative they can pull out.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I'll wait for the DVD. I wish they would have made an Iceman movie.

Not me, the spin offs....meh. I would have like to have seen just another X-Men sequel myself.

Sure if it was done right but the 3rd one sucked hard.

While I don't agree it sucked hard I do think it was the worst of the three. Actually I liked it a lot. But yeah sequels always seem to fade to crap. :-?

I've been waiting to see this since the first previews came out. I finally convinced the fiancee to watch it with me, trying to sell her on Hugh Jackman being sexy. I don't want to get stuck watching another move like Bride Wars if this isn't good. For me though, I enjoy even the bad superhero movies.

It all depends. X-Men 1 and 2 were good. Spiderman 1 and 2 was good. 2 was even better than the first. Dark Knight was better thant Batman Begins. Fantastic 4 was crap and Superman Returns was a stinker.
