    Hey there,

    Just back from seeing an advanced preview of X-Men - The Last Stand. I am not an X-Men fan, and have seen the other two films, but it was a while ago. There is a strong cast - Patrick Stewart SPOILER: Who dies halfway through the film, Kelsey Grammer, etc etc.

    I don't get the whole X-Men story, but here is a spoiler of what happens to Sir Ian McKellan's character. He gets SPOILER :cured during the film, however at the end you see him playing chess and one of the pieces move slightly, and the film ends, indicating that their mutant powers can be regained after being cured. It leaves the door wide open for an X-Men 4.

    Special effects are excellent, although I can't remember what happened in the previous two films and I'm not into the whole X-Men thing so I didn't understand a lot of the stuff.

    I would recommend renting X-Men 1 & 2 before going to see this film, which I would recommend.

    Last week, I started a thread about the Da Vinci Code, which I saw 2 days before its worldwide release and I suggested definetely reading the book before going to see the film - even then I wouldn't recommend it. I would only see the Da Vinci Code to say that you have saw it and not be left out of the loop.

    The showing of X-Men was at 11pm tonight, before this I arranged people from my work (I work in a cinema part time) to go for a drink and we went and saw 'Waiting...' which I thought was a tiny bit better than 'OK'. Although 6 people got up and left...!

    I am going to see Mission Impossible : 3 tomorrow - I can offer my insight on this film also.

    If you have any questions about X-Men 3 or the Da Vinci code, don't hesitate to ask.

    I'm seeing this Sunday- I can't wait. My dad loved x-men comics as a kid, and I guess he passed it on to my brother and me (we have video games, old cartoon x-men movies, etc). I LOVED 1 and 2 and I was nervous that the director was changing, Ian McKellan is one of my favorite actors. :) And thank you for "whiting out" the spoiler

    SPOILER!: Jean comes alive again gets to class 5 (the most powerful mutant ever. She kills Patrick Stewarts character and her boyfriend who wears the glasses. She dies also later in the film. The girl who kills people by simply touching them (the one who has bobby as a boyfriend gets cured so they can touch each other.

    Did anyone stay for after the credits?

    Where you could hear Patrick Stewarts voice talking to a nurse call Moira?


    Which according to IMDB means he transferred his mind into that dude with no brain seen in the film during ethics class.

    Yeah I read about that on digg a week or so ago. I also watched it again tonight with some other friends. Both times I kept everyone until after the credits :)

    So is this just a tease? Or are they really going to do X4 some time in the future?

    Damn!!!! I just got back from the movie. There was an alternate ending? That'll teach me a lesson about leaving during the credits. Guess I'll have to wait for the DVD to see it. :(

    Did you guys catch Stan Lee in X3? If not, I won't tell where he was :) if you watch it a second time, you will see him.

    I don't know if there will be an x4 BUT at the same time I don't think the brand is dead. I don't know if I could do a whole wolverine movie ... but I could definitely do a whole magneto movie.

    I don't know, the movie was pretty good (for a non-fan) but Halle Berry is worth the ticket price!!! :D

    well i laughed through parts which were meant serious... i mean "psycho kinetical cocoon" ? i bursted out at that
    some of the plot twists were simply too ridiculous (i don't know any comics besides the movies)

    special effects are top but i found they used some characters too little and they could have done it much better

    imho the second one was much better

    I saw it last night with a friend who read comics. Myself, I only watched the saturday morning cartoon when I was younger. My verdict is a "meh." My freind was too fond either. He said that they were basically pulling crap out of their anus when they wrote the story. On the other hand, Colossus did get to lay the smackdown, and that was great.

    I just saw it today, didn't wait for the end of the credits.

    I didn't think it was nearly as good as the second movie. What was the "class" crap about? Stupid.

    Yeah, not bad. It's probably the weaker movie in the trilogy though. Really wish I'd seen the alternative ending. :eek:

    I love that Blue woman. I never can remember her name. I get distracted.
