i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 06:10 PM)

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

Scheiße.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

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.
