Nerdfury:
Alright, impress us. Go make a movie that doesn't suck.

No. You do not deserve things that are good.

Then stop whining about movies sucking. While I can happily agree that most comic and video game to movie conversions haven't precisely kept the canon, I've found many of them immensely enjoyable based on their own merits. Whining won't make them better. Making them better will make them better and if the current directors won't do it, and you won't do it, then I guess we're all fucked.

[quote]Why did he have to be underwater? It wouldn't accelerate the cooling any more than his normal body temperature, and considering the way it spiked, it wasn't doing shit to help keep that under control.

Shortest likely answer: Because it'll look more cool when he jumps out. Likeliest fake-science-y answer: It's supposed to be working like a sensory-dep tank.

Doesn't look cool in the slightest. Seems more like an excuse to show off Jackmans ass for 5 minutes. And it isn't sensory deprivation, as he's still able to hear everyone before it happens

Hold up, y'all. How come when chicks and gay guys want some fanservice it's "whiny" and we should shut up, but it's totally okay for you guys to talk about wanting Emma Frost in the White Queen outfit? I don't begrudge you the desire (me, I'll take the comic book version of Storm, to be honest), but be a little fair here. :)

My puesdo-science guess is that the writer was inspired by the process of electroless, similar to how they nickle plate other materials. The comics describe the process as them molecularly bonding adamantium to this skeleton.

Opinions aside, I think it is a more visually interesting to have him pop out of the water as apposed to say sitting up on a table. Maybe there is a little truth in your idea as well, I guess Gambit wasn't enough to draw the female fans.

mkay! LOL
anywas gambit rules, becose he's interesting? no! because you need a guy with playing cards, imagine Apocalypse now without death cards, imagine batman without the joker, he is needed for the win.

I agree (with everything but the bit on Storm). I'm getting a bit tired of geekboys who's head bob up and down with every perfectly-rendered flex of Laura Croft's giant boobs turning around and making snarky comments about fangirls (or gayfanboys) who demand the man-meat.

C'mon. We all deserve a treat. Stop being so judgemental, ok?

Movie Bob never fails to entertain! I really hope this movie is good, cause I really want to like it!

Dear filmmakers: DO. NOT. LISTEN. TO. FANS.

I don't usually quote Yahtzee, but this is spot on:

Yahtzee:
Fans are clingy, complaining dipshits who will never, ever be happy for any concession you make.

Nerdfury:

No.

For one, your counter of "if you don't like the movies then go make a better one" is fallacious. I am not a filmmaker. Telling me to go make a good movie is rude.

If someone goes to a restaurant and says the food was not very good, do you order them to go cook a better meal? Would cooking a better meal add any more weight to their opinion that the meal they got at the restaurant was not good?

No, it wouldn't. This "go do better' argument is not a good counter argument. People should stop saying it because it makes them look like hostile jerks with no sense. The main point of this tactic is to try to shift things and throw the other side off balance. It doesn't work because it really does not argue anything. It's just an underhanded technique.

The other reason I will not stop complaining about the low quality of super hero movies is because these movies are popular despite their low quality and they make money. This is because the fans will eat shit with a spoon and call it ice cream. So the movies will not get better until the fans stop making bad movies successful and saying dumb things like they should have won an Academy Award.

You accuse me of the purpose of my reply being an argument of 'if you don't like, go make a better movie' and accuse me of a poor education. Given that you know nothing about me, I'll let the latter assumption slip with the knowledge that I am excellently educated and simply address your other fallacious assumptions.

If you read my post a little more carefully, I was actually pointing out that whining about poor movies constantly doesn't make them better. People have been complaining to bad directors for years - decades even - and it hasn't improved them a bit.

No, my post was more directed towards the theory that while whining about bad movies changes nothing; the only thing that will positively change the movie industry is to become something good in it. An internet troll is hardly a positive beacon of light for the industry, but becoming a film-maker and making good movies is.

Sitting in forums telling people that every comic book to movie conversion sucks is going to have no positive effect.

Wow. Good thing we have you around to tell us these things. By posting on an internet forum.

Thank you, but I already know I'm black, Mr. Kettle. If you do not like what I say and cannot formulate an appropriate response, please ignore my posts. Everyone else seems to have that down pat.

Because I took a great deal of offense to your original reply. It would have been one thing if you had said

"lol Are you kidding? teh DARK KNIGHT was AWSUME!!!11!!ONE!!"

Or perhaps something intelligent, either disagreeing or asking questions or whatever. But to tell me to go make a movie is belligerently rude. Partially because you know god damned well I won't do it because if I would, I would already be making movies and not bothering with internet forums full of pushy cunts having pushy competitions to see which one is the pushiest. So, to even suggest this is eight different kinds of stupid if sincere and just being a hypocritical dick if not.

So, yes, I am complaining on an internet forum and that's pathetic.

You're trying to be the internet forum complaining police, which is even more pathetic.

If you disagree, disagree. Don't resort to acting like my ex-roommate's girlfriend, whom I took great pleasure in suggesting that her pet hamster might not have died if she'd only kept it out of her twat.

I hated that pushy bitch.

I haven't seen the third X-Men movie, though maybe that's a good thing. Also, apparently, they like to add characters, even though they don't have much screentime and character development.

I saw the movie tonight. I'm still wondering if it was good or bad.

Without discussing my own personal apprehensions in regards to the Wolverine movie or my opinion of this review as a whole, I just want to squeak in regards to one thing.

imo, the entire "...live action gambit. There you go. Female and gay-male fans of Xmen, can you now please find something else to bitch about" shtick was entirely off base. I'm not saying that reading masses of fan drool (for ANY character) isn't annoying, just pointing out that a number of people were waiting for a Gambit appearance because the name "Remy LeBeau" comes up along with "Hank McCoy" in the previous movies, and this is finally a delivery of the "promised" addition of an X-man arguably more notable to the main X franchise than say Jubilee or Kitty Pride. Something that is completely overlooked in the review in favor of just bashing on people.

the movie was good though it had many parts that i wish were not done as they did but oh well.
All i ask is that if they make a deadpool movie the first shot in the film shows him with his arms cut off, eyes gouged out, and lower jaw missing so he at least has the chance of being more deadpool like when they grow back.

Super powers of the blob:
The Blob could create a mono-directional gravity field extending five feet from his center of balance, rendering himself virtually immovable as long as he was in contact with the ground.

sorry, i could not resist telling that, because it is a awesome power

==============================

CGI scene with the claws and the mirror:
i heard about 12 people laughing in the theater

Actually, yes I DID know that Kamehameha was the name of the last king of Hawaii before American assimilation. In Japanese, the word loosely translates as "Turtle Shot/Blast," and is named for its creator Roshi, the Turtle Hermit.

I don't agree with MovieBob a lot, but this time he's right. I mean, how lame would it be if we got to see EVERY single Batman villain, that would be just stupid.
