    May 8, 2012 9:40 am I enjoy 1989's The Punisher but only because it's so bad it's good.
    August 20, 2011 8:57 am I'd like to point out that Neveldine/Taylor only wrote an early version of Jonah Hex and was rewritten by two other people.
    July 19, 2011 9:00 am I'm kinda tired of the whole "dark" angle now and Peter looks a little to angsty for my taste. I loved the first person sequence though, reminded me of Mirror's Edge.
    June 6, 2011 7:16 am This movie started out great, I loved Magneto and Xavier's characterization and wish it had just been those two throughout the film looking for Shaw, but as soon as they added the First Class this movie went downhill fast.

    Fassbender and Mcavoy were great in their roles. Lawrence and Bacon were ok in their roles. January Jones gives the same wooden performance as she did in unknown, she also did the sad, lost puppy face in this movie too. Whilst the rest were quite forgettable, like Darwin, he had no place in this film you could remove him all together and the film would only be slightly different from beginning to end.

    Some of the writing was really bad, most of that going to the character of Hank McCoy. While on writing, some of the lines were super cheesy, all the Xavier going bald jokes and lines like "She didn't do this, you did this" literally made me do a Picard facepalm (ironic isn't it).

    While the action was fun I never really felt like anyone was in real danger until the final showdown with the rockets. I also felt like the hench-mutants were pretty lame, I wish they had just shoe-horned in Sabertooth and Toad.

    In the end it suffered the same fate as X-Men Origins Wolverine, getting to a point were the writers and director realise that they still have to line everything up with another movie because someone stupidly decided this should remain in the same continuity as another film.

    One thing that annoyed me about Xavier was the way he treated Mystique when she was in her normal blue form. I always thought Xavier was super accepting about those things, hell he didn't give Beast any crap for his crazy feet.

    In the end I was so frustrated with this movie as soon as Xavier lost his legs, which I felt was handled terribly, I just walked out knowing that everything would be wrapped up so it would lay perfectly with X-Men.

    And lastly I'll leave you with this thought, what is it with X-Men writers and bullets?! 
    June 1, 2011 9:22 am Batman is awesome! I surely would've screwed that up by talking in the wrong phone at the wrong time.
    May 30, 2011 5:52 am I didn't read Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine #6 but that panel gave me chills 
    April 25, 2011 4:07 pm @Alexferrer  The sly smile definitely caught my attention too. Great cover.
    March 25, 2011 9:59 pm ZOMG they are white washing the cast!!! I'll go get my "Hollywood is racist" signs!!!

    Anyway, I have little faith in this project but I'll leave my mind open to it and might keep an eye on it as it evolves.
    March 8, 2011 6:44 pm Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker was great but it wasn't 'Academy Award' great.
    March 4, 2011 8:54 am What I like best about this photo is that it is 100% Red Skull but still looks like Hugo Weaving. Great job from the make up department.
