Wolverine DVD on shelves today...

...and I don't even want it.

I even bought X-Men 3. But Wolverine is just too horrible for me to spend my money on. Even as a huge Wolverine fan, even as a completist. It's just that bad.

This makes me sad.

Re: Wolverine DVD on shelves today...

One thing about this transitional period between SD DVDs and higher resolution content like BluRay DVDs and 720p/1080p direct downloads (over iTunes store or Xbox Live for example) is it's prevented me from buying a lot of garbage I would've bought 3 or 4 years ago but these days...Well, I certainly don't need a Wolverine BluRay, and there's no point in buying a regular DVD so.... Money saved, I guess!

Wolverine, the only character who has ever had 4 origin stories in the span of 10 years!

I'll rent it, because I never bothered to see it in theaters.

I see they are already spoiling the surprise Patrick Stewart appearance in the TV trailers for the DVD.

Meh, I haven't bought an X-Men DVD since that X-Men Collection (containing X-Men and X2) came out prior to The Last Stand.

I might rent Wolverine at some point, but I'm not in much of a hurry.

I haven't seen it. It is supposed to come in the mail today from Netflix. But I doubt I will be buying a copy for my collection.

The TV spots pretty much spoil the whole movie. I have no interest in buying this or renting this. Might ask my friend to make a copy for me or just borrow his. He enjoyed the film when we went to see it.

Does this DVD have a different version of the film, including scenes with little Ororo?

Ditto for myself. I even walk past the $5 DVD bin now when I go to Walmart. I've seen the quality difference and I just don't think it's worth it anymore to buy DVDs, even discounted.

Re: Wolverine DVD on shelves today...

I picked it up today. I didn't see it during it's theatrical run so it was all new to me. I enjoyed it. It was a fun little action flick. Certainly not the travesty so many fans have made it out to be.

It might be the fact that I know exactly jack and shit about the comic book character that allowed me to enjoy the movie. None of the changes hurt me any because I didn't know they'd been made in the first place.

I have no regrets. I got what I wanted out of the flick.

Personally I thought with all the bitching and hyperbole flying around this place about Wolverine that it was going to be Terminator 4 awful. It wasn't. Not by a loooong shot.

Meh. It was about as good as any Wolverine movie could be. Shame they had to drag Deadpool down into mediocrity with him.

Re: Wolverine DVD on shelves today...

Okay, I just finished watching the film for the first time and it leaves me with the same impression of most of the opinions on films I see in this forum: you people don't know what you are talking about.

I haven't really been a huge fan of the X-Men movie franchise. I mean, I have enjoyed them for what they were. But the little things like Logan being about a foot and a half too tall were always a big siren call that this wasn't the X-Men from the comics. So I did my best to put aside that criticism during this film. Being that this was his fourth time playing the role, okay, time to let that go. Also a big complaint I had about the first three was that they were basically Wolverine movies with a little X-Men thrown in for bad measure. This time there were no illusions. It was meant to be a Wolverine movie and that is what it was, and I can accept that.

My conclusion about this movie? I found that this movie is the best one out of ALL the X-Men films so far. Sure. I wish the ending would have been better, and I have never liked Deadpool being that he is a sucky Rob Liefield creation. But the movie up to the end sequence had me pretty engrossed and entertained. Definitely not what you would call Oscar material, but the most Oscar material isn't my cup of tea either. I look for movies that can entertain me, and this one did by and large. I'd give it a B-.

So, given the movie opinions of the people on this forum being general opposite of my own, I expect I will really like the Star Trek movie when it comes out on DVD as well. Yes, that was another one I have missed. And, lucky me, another one I have managed to avoid virtually all spoilers for.
