Yeah, I saw X3 ONCE in the theater and never watched it again, so as far as I'm concerned it doesn't exist.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Well, I'm up to the challenge of making things fit. It's fun, plus I don't like the idea of installments in a series being ignored. Doing so turns the entire series into a haphazrd mess like Highlander. I'll take a less than stellar installment over that.

No kidding. It's one of the only movies I've ever seen that left me genuinely angry while leaving the theater.

Oh also like to add Rose Byrne in lingere was "Schwing" worthy as Wayne and Garth would put it.
I noticed that they didn't show too much. A lot of close-ups, quick shots and one guy placed in front of her as she came down the stairs. Maybe Rose doesn't do semi nude and they came up with a compromise.

I hadn't thought of that...
Looking at that, Rose and Olivia Williams (age aside) do look a bit alike.

I snuck rum into the theater when I saw that one, so when I left I was too drunk to be angry.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Yeah it does seem that a lot it comes from ignoring stuff in X3. That's fair enough, I thought it was a crummy movie too. (Even though maybe it does come off a bit snobby from Singer perhaps)
But anyway, it seems to me the only point of ignoring X-Men: The Last Stand is if let's say Singer made an X-Men 4 that ignored 3 and carried on from 2. (X-Men 2.5, whatever you'd call it. I suppose "X-Men 3" could be used, I'll just call it X4 for the purposes of this next bit)


But let's face that won't happen. 'Second Class' I'm fairly sure will happen... so it's 2011 now, let's say that comes out in 2013, and Third Class in, say, 2016. I doubt X4 would come out while those were being made, so then that wouldn't be able to be released till, what, 2018?


Now it's 2018... fifteen years after X2 came out. Are you gonna use the same actors? Anna Paquin would be 36, Hugh Jackman 50, Ian McKellen 79, Shawn Ashmore 39, etc etc
It couldn't exactly take place right after X2, so how do you explain the 15 years. They might as well recast........ which would make me think, why bother with it at all? Just reboot.



So basically my thoughts, are, haha, I hope the movie X-franchise continues, but it sure ain't gonna be tied together all nice and tidy

Well, at least they're taking a cue from the comics.

I think they could easily make an X4 that takes place farther in the future. I mean, hell, half the characters died or lost their powers in X3 anyway, so it could be about an entirely different X-Men team fighting a new bad guy. That could actually be pretty fun.

1. Emma Frost was miscast with an actress who seemed not to respond with emotion or even concern to anything going on around her. The White Queen is a character that is supposed to "steal the scene" when she walks in the room. This performance was utterly flat and pedestrian.
I'm reading alot of these comments. January Jones just has a blank face.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

"X-Men: First Class" wins the weekend pulling in $56 million. Which is around what I thought it would make opening weekend. Not the huge weekend Fox was probably expecting but like I stated earlier I expect this film to be a word of mouth film over the next few weekends.

It's also one of the first true weekends of the summer. People are probably outside.

^ If Storm was 7 in 1962 then she'd be 47 in 2002, and probably older in X-Men given that it was set in the near future. Halle Berry will be 45 this August. Ergo, I guess that First Class can be seen as a partial reboot. There's really no obstacle to having people like Scott and Jean turn up.
Well, I think it's been hinted at that, perhaps, mutants age slower than humans. But the contnuity in this movie series is, indeed, a mess.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

If First Class does end up being a trilogy then I could possibly see the timeline progress until we see Jean, Scott, Ororo, etc in perhaps the third movie. As mentioned before Vaughn stated that he has an idea for a second movie to take place shortly after the Kennedy assassination involving the so-called 'magic bullet". A third movie could take place in the late 70's or something and at the end of the trilogy we could see Xavier welcoming Scott and Jean to Xavier's. There are multiple possibilities with this film now.

I feel like the film mostly only contradicts X3.

Very this!

I hated X-3 so bad. It's just unwatchable to me now. I saw it when the 'rents dragged me to the grand canyon when it was still in theaters. it almost ruined the trip for me because i was like "why why why?!" And then Singer goes off the ruin Superman - epic fails all around.

First Class is First Class - I loved it. I'm so glad that someone bothered to like actually embrace the genre rather than try to mainstream it. Also good to see so much history with Mystique and Xavier - I mean, who knew?

They should have gone the Star Trek / Bond route and rebooted everything. It might have saved it from being the lowest opening for a Marvel movie ever.
