Suckmaster Burstingfoam: Well, Fox already destroyed the Simpsons all to hell.


Never mind the abortion that was "Dragonball Evolution"...

soporific: puckrock2000: EdgeRunner:
I'm not feeling the hate for X3. Quality-wise, it's about on par with X1, and while it has more than its share of groaner dialogue, there's still nothing in it as risible as the infamous "You know what happens to a frog..?" line.

The problem wan't with the line; it was with Halle Berry's delivery of it.

Whedon: Okay, which was also mine, and that's the interesting thing. Everybody remembers that as the worst line ever written, but the thing about that is, it was supposed to be delivered as completely offhand. [Adopts casual, bored tone.] "You know what happens when a toad gets hit by lightning?" Then, after he gets electrocuted, "Ahhh, pretty much the same thing that happens to anything else." But Halle Berry said it like she was Desdemona. [Strident, ringing voice.] "The same thing that happens to everything eeelse!" That's the thing that makes you go crazy. At least "You're a dick" got delivered right.

Imagine Bruce Campbell delivering the line and suddenly it's much, much better. (Or better yet, Robert Downy Jr. as Ton Stark.)


Let's not forget that the set up dialogue (basically Toad finding flimsy excuses for saying how awesome toad biology is etc.) for that line was dropped in rewrites and for some reason they never pruned that line too.

Duck_of_Doom: Milo Minderbinder: Wow, what a novel idea; a movie based on a comic book.

Here's an even better idea: how about movies for adults?

If they ever come out with an adult movie where the wife, husband, kids, and dog live to the end, then you'd have a point.  Or maybe, instead of an "overcoming all odds and wins/learns in the end", how about a non-wacky "gets crushed by overwhelming odds and gets on with a mediocre, boring life."  Until then, screw the forced-emotion tearjerking wankery of "adult" movies.


The dog dying definitely is the hallmark of a movie for kids/preteens/coming of age. Parents and siblings are not immune to death by Newberry medal.

mooseyfate: I want a Tom Jane Punisher flick. No, a REAL Tom Jane Punisher flick. With blood, guts, and assholes everywhere. None of that sissy "torture a man with a freezer-pop" nonsense. And no Travolta Hair Plugs.


I KNOW you've seen laundry day

And do you think adults never went to see any of the X-men or FF movies?  Do you think they were coerced at gunpoint to see this films?  Or do you think those high grosses were all kids and teenagers?  HURRRR DERRRRR!

Would you like to retract your comment in shame or just end your own life in shame?

I don't deny adults go to those movies. But adults also watch brightly colored cartoons about ponies.

Let's be honest; studios make these movies because there is a built-in base of ticket-buyers, regardless of the quality of the product. This stuff isn't Dr. Zhivago. Hell, it's not even Dr. Detroit.


Why yes, Jonah Hexx and Green Lantern raked in the big bucks, didn't they?

yves0010: I believe it is on record that in the new X Men movie universe... X3 just never happened. And I for one, am happy that it is considered non cannon. Being that my only exposure to the Dark Phoenix saga was from the 90s X-Men cartoon. I was very upset about the how they made her. And with how they added the real phoenix at the end of the second movie. That was what I was wanting. Also, I am sick of The X-Men becoming Wolverine and a bunch of other mutants.


Yes, it did happen.  In The Wolverine, Logan suffers hallucinations of Jean Grey throughout the movie that are manifestations of his guilt from killing her.  At the end of the movie, when they set up DoFP, Logan is shocked to see Xavier alive.

I know that since I finally saw that movie. But I heard in earlier articles published that X3 was being ignored. Not sure about that now but anyways, this sets up a great way to ignore the hell out of X3 in future movies.

I just want to point out that most of the comic book porn movies are more faithful to the books than the big budget Hollywood PG13 versions. Except for the farking.

Anyone who says comics are for kids has not read one in decades.

Anyone who says comic books are for adults failed to mature over the past decades.

You sound boring. Really, really boring.

So what, pray tell, is proper entertainment for adults? What would you recommend?
