>that brief moment after Monster's Ball when Halle Berry was considered a big enough movie star to get a prominent place on the poster and an awkwardly grafted on subplot with Nightcrawler in the movie that goes nowhere
I'd say it was topped by Spider-Man 2 but the point still stands.
Because Singer is actually a competent director and he made a great action adventure movie with great characters and a stellar cast (outside of Berry). It's not just formulaic capeshit that put asses in seats based on it's title and it's CGI building falling trailer shots.
Also Brian Cox was fucking stellar in this movie. Most despicable guy ever. Literally invades and shoots up a school, responsible for Logan's horribly traumatic past but still shit talks him about it, captures Xavier and gets smug with him etc. etc. and yet you still feel sorry for him and understand why he does it when he talks about his son.
>>64919804 I really don't know. Maybe there isnt enough evidence to prove that he, without a doubt, had sex with someone under 18 even though it's really obvious he has. Also he's a powerful guy in Hollywood and they like covering shit up.
>>64920066 all DOFP needed was Wolverine waking back up in the new future, in his costume like wtf am I wearing only for the camera to to pan out with the older cast in their costumes and a cool fight scene with them all with the x men song playing
I just want this to fucking happen in one movie fucking hell
ACTUALLY A GOOD ACTION / ADVENTURE MOVIE THAT HAPPENS TO INCLUDE SUPER HEROES >Batman Begins >The Dark Knight >Blade II >Spider-Man >Spider-Man 2 >X-Men >X2: X-Men United >X-Men: Days of Future Past
WORTH A WATCH FOR "FUN" >Blade >Captain America: The Winter Soldier >Iron Man >Guardians of the Galaxy >The Punisher
EH >Captain America: The First Avenger >Hulk >X-Men: First Class
UTTER SHIT >The Avengers >The Avengers: Age of Ultron >Blade: Trinity >Daredevil >Elektra >Fantastic 4 >Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer >Green Lantern >Iron Man 2 >Iron Man 3 >The Amazing Spider-Man >The Amazing Spider-Man 2 >Man of Steel >Thor >X-Men 3: The Last Stand
FUCK YOU IT'S GREAT >Daredevil (Director's Cut) >Spider-Man 3 >X-Men Origins: Wolverine >Fantastic 4%
DOES THIS EXIST? >Ant-Man >Ghost Rider >Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance >The Incredible Hulk >Punisher: War Zone >Superman Returns >The Wolverine >Thor: The Dark World
show Mystique as a little girl in the beginning then show her as Rebecca Rojmin. She still acts, she still looks hot, she could have still done it, and she was fucking awesome at it. Her Mystique was fucking scary, Jennifer Lawrence is just angry and annoying.
also why the hell didn't they start a new with 3 in the past movies and 3 in the future movies? all the older cast still look good and that's who people want back. I'm really sick of these kiddy x men. I bet after Apocolypse we won't see Turner or anyone else back.
>>64920716 Rojmin isn't a meme. They want their movie to make money. That's all these things are. Pandering product. The fact that you expect quality out of them reveals you to be a manchild. Possible adult video game player.
>>64921005 Did you miss what I've been saying? In 2011, when First Class came out, she was a complete nobody. She wasnt a meme, she wasnt popular, Rebecca Rojmin was far more famous than she was at the time.
>>64921054 First Class was phase 2 in Jennifer Lawrence becoming a meme. Or do you think her fame was just a happy accident?
I'll refer you to a post I typed about Oscar Isaac a while back.
"By falling for the Oscar Isaacs meme you're every bit as bad as the people lining up for the latest Chris Pratt flick. These men are marketing tools, not actors. Inside Llewyn Davis was a hollywood shill job made for the express purpose of creating a new "legitimate" actor to be used in subsequent capeshit releases in order to attract the "film buff" demographic to maximize profits. This happens all the time in hollywood. They pluck out a new star with an inoffensive face from obscurity, put them in an indie shit on the cheap, and bam, they now have "legitimacy" "wow look at this hot new talented actor" appeal and can now be a new "artificial star" to hinge your summer tentpole release on.
It is all fraud, a manipulation. Oscar Isaac is no more an artist, no more a human being even, than the new mcdonalds festive hamburger promotion. He is smoke and mirrors, a light show, a pretend actor.
Exact same career progression is true of all of the shilled meme actors of late. Lawrence, Fassbender, Hardy, Pratt. By supporting these "lesser known" critical darling you are only enabling the pre-production marketing phase of the capeshit machine.
>>64920825 Sure, I just meant to say that the reason why it works on its own is because it has roots in a standalone story.
Same with DOFP, they changed around a lot, but it's still got a core to go back to. I much prefer adaptations that aren't afraid to veer WAY off base from the source material. Movies are their own format, they don't need to be direct and literal translations of the source material. Just use that as a springboard to tell your own story.
Watchmen is a perfect example, it tried to stay SOOO close as to use the comic for storyboard purposes, but it magnifies the changes they have to make for practical reasons, and a lot of what is good about the comic is that it's ALSO a metacommentary on the medium of comics in general. That's a lot less awesome when that metacommentary is missed, or irrelevant.
Not that the above is necessarily true for x-men, just the first example i could think of.
>>64921321 >don't just do generic shit. Yes they do. They may have started out as "legitimate" actors but they both soon descended into blockbuster nonsense. They may do an "interesting" small movie on the side every now and then, but that's only a manufactured attempt to create the illusion that they don't only do capeshit shitbusters. >fassbender is legit, he did Frank and Slow West. Yeah between capeshit sequels and let me remind you that he is doing literal videogame shit. In some ways Fassbender is the worst of them all. I always carry a weapon and if I saw him I'd do everything in my power to kill him, this is because I love cinema. If you did too you'd also hate him. Instead you are an easily manipulated meme sheep.
>>64921278 The meme has long since been co-opted by the jewish powers that be. For purposes ranging from money making to straight up white genocide. Just look at Guardians of the Galaxy and tell me that Hollywood hasn't tapped into cynical meme manufacturing.
>>64921801 So yes you do? Fuck off. You are the reason the white male is on the brink of extinction. You infantilized piece of shit. >he thinks Scorcese is legitimate art >he thinks his fucking CAPESHIT is legitimate art. >he willingly subjects himself to the autism machine.
>>64922045 Not really. The promotion of "geek culture" is a vital part of the jew's white genocide. You keep your enemy infantilized. Condition them to stay in their bedrooms worshipping cartoon characters and playing with toys, and at the same time you condition white females to race mix. And then, before you know it, no more white people.
If you consume entertainment product like blockbusters movies, comic books or video games then you are complicit in white genocide.
Its not though, its extremely cookie cutter and basic with awful costumes and fight scenes, overall a 5/10 plot nothing too interesting about it at all and a lot of the characters weren't utilized well at all
>>64922171 You are no better than those fucking SJWs and radical muslims, you people are never happy with what is offered to you, I'm so fucking sick of you fucking whiners, I hope that fat fuck from best Korea nukes the earth's core and send you all to hell.
>>64923423 You should be radical in whatever you believe. That's the only way to make an impact. The trick is picking a cause that's just. My cause is white preservation which includes the destruction of degenerate media. As a straight white male this cause seems more attractive than the white genocide crusades of tumblr and Islam.
