X-Men: The Movies
« on: December 06, 2005, 03:00:37 PM »
Trailer for the new X-Men movie, rushed through production to sooner be a flop near you.

http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox/x3/

Bryan Singer signed on to do Superman Returns, so rather than wait, Fox signs Brett Ratner, (Rush Hour, Red Dragon) to bring his mediocraty to Wolverine and the gang. Halle Berry's bland Storm is given a beefed up role because she wouldn't come back otherwise. Worse news of all is that they started shooting without a completed script. Always a bad sign.

Oh no!

And the first 2 films were so good!

I'm hoping it will be visually cool enough that I can ignore the faults of the atrocious directing and writing.

I mean, hey, it worked so well for Underworld, right? Fucking sweet-ass movie that was.

I really annoyed with stupid film makers.

X-Men was ace, X-Men 2 was just as ace.... Maybe they'll pull it out of the bag for X-Men 3. I hope.

Bryan Singer has has turned his talents to other films. First: re-creating and perfecting the Superman franchise.

Then Logan's Run, so Nacho can sate his sci-fi craving.

Now Singer's talking shit about doing a Star Trek movie, which would be fucking AWESOME. Finally Trek that doesn't suck! Who would've thought. But that's all the Trekweb bitches, and those poor saps don't get laid, ever, so their opinion is suspect.

I just watched the teaser again. Beast looks awesome. I like Kelsey Grammar, my white inclinations towards "Frasier" notwithstanding. Also, there was a nice Famke Jenssen ass shot in those little, little work-out shorts. Mmmm. Nice.

So, my Stupid ME computer won't let me watch the trailer. If anybody finds a .WMV of it, let me know.

I'm hoping for the best with X3, but I really think they should have waited for Singer (who would have come back. He simply couldn't do two movies at once.) just to give it that roundness.

I thought X-Men was good and X2 was even better, so my expectations are pretty high.

hey, Red Dragon was good.  Ratner made a better Hannibal movie than Ridley Scott did.

and if anyone can point me at any evidence that something "looks like" a Bryan Singer movie, let me know.  I'm not saying I hate the guy, I like his movies, but he's not one of those "Oh, yeah, that's definitely his work" directors.  all this movie needs is a good script like the other two.  all the main elements are in place.

Red Dragon was also good the first time around . . . when it was Manhunter. I thought Michael Mann made a better movie, Brian Cox was a fine Lecter, and Tom Noonan was scarier than Ralph Fiennes, and I'm a huge friggin' Fiennes fan.

Ratner is a bastion of mediocraty. He doesn't suck, he's just bland. He "picks" projects where the star power overshadows the director. Producers love him though, so he must do something right. (Read: Does bang up box office..)

Internet buzz is ripping X3 and Brett Ratner a new asshole, but I think these one-sheets look pretty cool. Of course, I'm in the minority.

So, a new X3 trailer should be hitting the web anytime now. I just saw it during 24 and I have to say that it looked pretty okay. Not great, but not the shit stew it's being touted as.

So, good or bad, they'll get my $9. Just because I'm loyal to the franchise.

X3 comes out next week and the early reviews say it's pretty good. Apparently it stays faithful to the other two movies. I guess it seems Ratner didn't try to come in and shake shit up too much.
