Yikes. Sounds more like GTA.

@  Dracula : (23 March 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Someone drove a car through a crowd of people and then into the front gates of parliament, I think, and stabbed a police officer before being killed by other officers

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 AM)

I coincidentally watched London Has Fallen yesterday afternoon, heard an offhand remark about a terrorist attack in London on the radio yesterday afternoon, and somehow put the two together in my sleepy haze. I need to read what actually happened.

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:30 PM)

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

origin felt like its writer was just waiting for someone to come along and fill in the gaps for him

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

im currently making my way through autocracy. im trying to read them all in the order on the wiki page; http://tfwiki.net/wi...ontinuity#Media

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

The 'acys have no excuse for their terribleness.

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

Megatron Origin gave us Megatron's lovely locks, so that's something. It wasn't horrible, but being condensed down to four issues really hurt it

Megatron Origin is super disappointing if you go in right after reading Chaos Theory/MtMtE...

@  Telly : (19 March 2017 - 09:34 PM)

just read the megatron origin series. that really shouldve been 6 issues. it was very choppy and some things couldve used some further explaining

And I agree, that's going to be tough to watch again Sunday when I bring my teenagers.

Nobody ever said "Wolverine" or "X-Men" out loud during the whole movie did they? Although there were several clear and obvious visual references to both. 

 

Was there any references to the other guy with claws as being related to Sabretooth? If not, there should have been. Does Sabretooth have a son in the comics? I forget.

 

I also didn't stay to see if there were a post-credits scene. Was there?

 

And X-23 needs her own movie now.

No post credit scene (Im in the USA)

 

 

To say this film is brutal is an understatement. Not just in violence but in its tone.
 
A fitting end for Hugh Jackman imo.
 
 
Pros
 
Jackman/Stewart/and Dafne Keens acting. 
You can feel how old and tired Logan is . 
Keen portrays a feral child with a hint of sentiment well.
IMO This is Stewarts best performance. for the most part in previous X-films, hes played a benevolent, saintly Xavier.
In this one, he is sarcastic, bitter, funny as hell, and yet tender at times. I feel he should be nominated for an Oscar.
 
The fight scenes are very well-shot, bloody and unnerving for both Logan and x-23. You see all the impacts and there is minimal CG.
It even gets Mortal Kombat esque at times.
 
The growing bond between X-23 and Logan is slow  but touching .
 
Boyd Holbrook plays Pierce as a "charming southern gentleman" and may be one of the few times a henchman is more interesting than the main villain in an X-film.
 
the odd decision to have actual X-men comics in the movie doesnt take you out of it. It's used as a meta joke as well as serving as a plot point.
 
the music felt somewhat Western and Terminator 2 inspired.
 
the end - SNIFF :sad:
 
 
Cons
 
The main villain is shown very sparingly and plays an even lesser role in the final battle.
the other Reavers besides Pierce arent notable or any characters from the comics (that I could tell)
 
There is a character made from scratch for this film who appears at the end of Act 2.
While it sort of makes sense given Lauras origins, I was personally hoping one of Logans previous villains would have appeared.
This character doenst get much screentime out of fights so it may not bother you as much as robot Silver Samurai imo.
 
Like Deadpool, the villains are mostly functional for the plot but arent developed much or super memorable.
 
 
Notes: He doesnt wear the classic costume at all (No big loss as this type of story wouldnt fit)
 
 
Overall: A powerful character drama with great action. Much BETTER thanApocalypse.
              8.5/10

I thought it was Sabertooth at first. I would have been fine if they tried calling him Daken.

Pierce was pretty cool. The kids were terrifying at that part. (They're not New Mutant tho. Comic Rictor isn't a telekinetic type)

It would have been much cooler if it had actually been Daken in appearance and (slightly altered) backstory despite such a movie not being focused on Daken.

didnt gabriella call him wolverine the first time she saw him? and when the comics are shown, wolvie says "we have an x-men fan"

 

so the deadpool part was an actual part of the movie? i thought it was just a new teaser trailer. though the several firefly posters promiently shown confuse me. i guess its cause morena was in the first one? is she in the second? and i liked the "nathan summers coming soon?" on the phonebooth

 

though i want now more than ever for hugh to come back and make a deadpool movie

 

as for the movie itself, its was good. dont feel a need to see it again til it hits blu ray though

See, Fox, I knew if you put your mind to it, you could make a good Wolverine movie.

 

(No I didn't, this completely surprised me)

 

The pre-(opening)credit scene was hilarious, but I didn't take it as being part of the movie. It was just a short, like a Bug Bunny cartoon. Only much more appropriate.

 

Honestly, I wish New Mutants would pick up from here. It would have a purpose and its name would make sense, two things that won't remotely be true when taking place during the McAvoy/Xavier era.

This was a really awesome film.  I really enjoyed how they "realistically" portrayed how lethal an actual Wolverine character would be.  The guy has stabby knives coming out of his hands!

 

I saw that "Bonebreaker" was a character during the credits.  I was disappointed not to see a guy who was a torso riding around on tank treads.  Not sure which cannon-fodder Reaver character he was supposed to be.

I bet if I watched this movie 100 more times, I would never be able to tell who was supposed to be who.

I thought it was much better than the Old Man Logan comics.

I'm gonna miss seeing Jackman and Stewart play those roles. :( (I'd love it if they filmed a sneaky cameo for Deadpool 2)
