      Wolverine was my favorite character as a kid and maybe why I didn’t get into the live action films after the first one. His character just felt very... off somehow. The fact that you never see him in his x-men uniform Is part of what bothers me I guess. He’s less of a spotlight character and more of a... just some guy 🤷🏻‍♂️

      In Deadpool 2 Juggernaut was a lot less ridiculous. This guy looked like an idiot with an old smashed up cooking pot from his mom’s kitchen on his head by comparison. Why did he have a thick Australian accent... ? 🤦🏻‍♂️

    I’ll admit I love this movie solely because of Beast and Wolverine. They are my favorite parts of the entire 3rd movie and honestly the best part of it for me.

    at 10:00 what triggers jeans dorment side is that with the water and protecting the x men she needed more power then her subconcious had so she had to go deeper and tap into the dorment side of her mind.
    if you didnt realize this then maybe these movies are to complicated for you :P

    9:34, to be fair, it may have bloated the movie by adding aliens and such. And having the Phoenix be a dual personality seems....I dunno...more grounded in the reality we’ve come to know in these movies.
    As opposed to what triggered it.....was possible her use of cerebro....since her mind and powers were already starting to go a bit haywire last film.

    All superhero movies are bad. It just comes with the territory. But this one I sort of liked. Still, cliches abound. Like shooting things in San Francisco. Movies are only ever set there is the director thinks he's come up with some new way of destroying th Golden Gate Bridge. So you know that you can expect that when you're in the bay area.
    Also: Famke Janssen is just perfect as Jean Grey. Pity they didn't give her a little more to work with, but she's still pretty amazing. In more ways thatn one...

    Oh I got it, cast Halle Berry as Rogue and it's all fixed. Some of it at least. Have Kitty recast as a powerful mutant, Rogue gets jealous and steals all her powers.

    Have you thought that maybe the reason why this movie is that hated is not that nothing good is in it, but the exact opposite? I hated this movie exactly because it has so many good things in it, and it blew them all.

    So he nitpicks X2 based on false information about X-Men and because it's more of a drama and he wants it to be only and action movie. Then he likes Last Stand?!
    Lemmeguess, he's also going to be one of those people who claims Dark Phoenix is worse than Origins. Even though it's much better than Origins and this mess. In fact:
    That's to everyone who calls Dark Phoenix an insult to X-Men. Even the creators loved it.

    So... the final fight has some cool X Men moments for named or main characters but all the other mutants boil down to their abilities being leaping. All the random mutants have only 1 power jumping or teleporting and with such a colourful cast as x men you could've done more.

    Umm actually, x3 is based on joss whedens astonishing X Men gifted arc where a woman creates a mutant antidote that you can take and be cured. The cartoon was an influence sure, see rogue but it more closely resembles gifted

    These movies make Storm seem so unlikeable. Unemotional acting, bad dialogue. Especially her line to Rogue makes her really unsympathetic.

    That somebody like Rouge would want to change I get. I mean never being able to touch somebody? That is a curse worse than most others. However I can see why someone like Storm would not wanna change. Like being able to control the weather? That's fucking awesome! So someone whose powers brings more pain to their lives than anything else should probably take the "cure" since it would give them a better life. But if your powers don't cause you any harm then I say keeping them is only logical

    A bad movie is just bad no matter if it has good elements left and right, there's a reason why they are put together. Judging the costumes, the colors or the jokes here and there and saying it's not that bad because of that is like lying to yourself after you bought the ticket full price in the theatre and convince yourself you didn't waste an hour and a half of your life along with 15 bucks. Sometimes you just have to see things for they are, a giant mess.

    I never understood why people hated this one over the others. I've liked all of them and thought they were good and can understand why if you think they are bad movies but I don't understand why people think some are good and others are bad. They seem pretty similar to me.
