I saw the third X-man movie this weekend and was very impressed. This trilogy provided the most satisfying story arc of any set of science fiction movies since the original Star Wars (Matrix 3 was kinda of a let down.) Of course, having decades of comic books from which to borrow story lines helps the writing / planning of short- and long-term stories. The special effects and action sequences were a couple of notches above the previous two movies, so I think that make this the best of the three. This movie instantly became one of my all-time favorite science fiction movies and I can’t wait for the DVD and another viewing at home.
I saw a post on Oz’s blog about a quiz to figure out which X-man you would be. I took the test and the result: Cyclops. If this is true, then that means my wife will be the end of me!
You scored as Cyclops. Cyclops is the team leader of the X-Men, and a skilled one at that. He loves Jean Grey very much. He’s a strict and sometimes uptight leader, but he believes in his cause and he knows what he’s fighting for… Peace between Mutants and Humans. Powers: Optic blasts
Jean Grey 80%
Emma Frost 50%
Finally, there is reason for speculation that Spider-Man 3 will debut the black spidey suit. I always thought it looked much better than the red and blue version. I guess we’ll have to wait to see if it is only a plain black suit or if it has a mind of its own. Spider-Man 2 is also one fo my favorite science fiction movies, so here’s hoping that third will top the other two.
Having decades of continuity is a two-edged sword. I’m sure there are “X-perts” howling about how this or that didn’t match continuity. They’ll rail against the most insignificant things, not to mention major breaks from X-canon, like it’s the end of the world. They forget… it’s a movie. There isn’t time for 30 years of backstory by a dozen authors two be squeezed into 2 hours.
Something else I’m noticing… it seems like men enjoyed the latest movie more than women (though I haven’t heard Nicole’s opinion yet). Maybe Wolverine didn’t spend enough time with his shirt off for them?
Well, isn’t this a little ironic??
You scored as Jean Grey.
Jean Grey is likely the most powerful X-Man. She loves Cyclops very much but she has a soft spot for Wolverine. She’s psychic so she can sense how others are feeling and tries to help them. She also has to control her amazing powers or the malevolent Phoenix entity could take control of her and wreak havok. Powers: Telekinetic, Telepathic
