    went to a private showing last night of X-men 2, and the movie is just awesome! story doesn't fallow the comics at all! but if u can get past that, the movie is really really good. there is action almost the entire movie for those of you who thought the first one was boring.:D

    yeah, we watched it last night too, we got 4 copies of it in...

    it was so amazing, the effects were so seemless, it seemed like it was al happening, and I like the fact that they didn't use a lot of "matrix type" effects (ie. slow motion fighting) because it wouldn't have worked well in that movie, but they did an excellent job on it, I dont' like many movies, but this one was pretty great.

    night crawler does some amzing things in that movie, I don't care for the sound he makes when he moves tho, thought it seemed kinda cheesey.

    that "popping" noise? I kinda liked it, it was sorta like a quick bang thing, I dunno, didn't bother me...

    all I have to say is "high in iron"... that was awesome.

    Saw it today, was fantastic.

    Best bits -
    Opening sequence with Nightcrawler, (I quite like the sound but they got rid of the sulphur smell from the comics)

    Cameos - Colossus and Syrin was cool (an Gambit cameo was cut, but you see his name on the computer)

    Wolverine finally killing people!

    The ending! fans of the comics almost certainly know what X3 is gonna be about!

    I just came back from a screening, its a really good film, way better than the first one. The only gripe i have about it (and quite a few other films at the moment) is the needless religious aspect in it.

    Whats going on at the moment with that?

    Special effects were really cool, and you get the matrix reloaded trailer thrown in as well... That'll do me..

    ;)

    Reserved? you can't buy them in advance? Got mine in my wallet from the 'instant-teller' type machines.

    just got back from seeing X2. Packed house of course. Pretty good movie, good to see the new characters. Nightcrawler is cool. Who was that big guy that threw up the metal sheild?

    woops, nevermind. I guess it shows that I don't follow the Xmen comics. It was Colossus. Woulda liked to have seen him more.

    I saw the movie a few mins ago..

    nice movie... story seemed a bit weaker than the first one...

    i was a bit miffed @ spielbergesque moments... refer to AI and the ending for an example of what I mean... the idea that a point has to be hammered into a person till they are unconcious doesn't sit well with me... why some directors do this is beyond me... did no one in the test audience say ENOUGH ALREADY... WE GET THE POINT... ?

    :rolleyes:

    some character development was quite good... introductory scenes were not bad @ all... nightcrawler was rendered very accurately... :) the actor playing Wagner did a good job...

    btw the popping noise is a nice effect.. if you follow the comics it is a reasonable approximation of his travel through the other dimension... unfortunate no one mentioned anything about the smell...

    overall... recommended movie :)

    the hulk is also shaping up to be pretty good.. the CG is not as corny as first believed.... and I am impressed @ some of the rendering I have seen... quite amazing...

    "btw the popping noise is a nice effect"

    talking of the sound effects, i particularly like Cyclops' laser noise!
    Kinda high intensity screaming sound! Cool!
