    Outside of some obvious effects/tech issues I've not quite understood the overwhelming hate of that flick.

    The decision to mute a character whose defining characteristic is that he never shuts up.

    The decision to try to make it another team up movie when the entire purpose of this movie was to tell a character’s story outside the team dynamic.

    Danny Huston.

    That awful Wolverine / Sabretooth fight at the end (Sabretooth’s horrible gallop, especially).

    So, so many WTF, Stephen Sommers-level CGI moments.

    Multiple yelling-NO!-at-the-sky moments.

    Yeah the Deadpool stuff is pretty indefensible. I usually forget thats in there lol.

    I still wonder how Wolvies claws work. They have to be stored in his forearms, right? Otherwise he wouldn't be able to bend his wrist. But if thats so, his wrists would have to be damn straight when they pop or they could come out his palms. Theres also the the deal with just because they're sharp as shit and unbreakable, you'd still have to be insanely strong to hold knives at that angle and cut through solid steel (especially like three inch thick doors and stuff, which he does).

    Well his entire skeleton is adamantium, which is indestructible*. So I assume the leverage he gets from adamantium-on-adamantium gives him the torque to cut through steel.

    Besides...have you seen Hugh Jackman? That guy could easily fist-pound Superman himself into the surface of the moon.


    *except for alllllllllllllll those times in the comics when it gets melted/destroyed/blown up for X, Y and Z plot convenient reasons.

    Yeah, if I remember some origin, the only reason he survives with the claws is because of his healing ability, and there is some pain each time he uses the claws. But it eventually becomes expected pain and knowing how to use his wrists to prepare the right way.

    Yeah it hurts every time.

    But like Duke said, he already had bone claws. So he didn’t have to learn / do anything new wth the metal ones.

    Something that always freaked me out about Wolverine is the idea that he feels everything the same way anyone else would, he just heals from it.

    He’s experienced being burned alive, drowning, being shot, cut up, impaled, skinned, scalped...

    The idea that these things have become normal sensations to him is...freaking terrifying.

    Is Dark Phoenix the official end to the X-Men Universe? What an unfortunate way to end what really started the Marvel movies.

    It's a tough pill seeing that I really only like four out of the 11 (probably 12) movies of the X-Universe. They're definitely my favorite comic franchise, but rarely hit the right stride that I feel is in the comic books.

    Nonetheless, it brought us Logan, which pretty much nails what I wanted out of an X-Men movie. It also has real risks, avoids corny humor, and has a real world perspective of mutants that I still think the MCU is completely devoid of.

    Technically we’ve still got New Mutants, but I’m pretty sure that’s an entirely new cast of charactes, so yeah, Dark Phoenix appears to be it. Way to go out with a whimper, they shoulda just stopped with Logan.

    Well that's true because there are no mutants in the MCU.

    Reading the articles, Donnie Yen is up to be in Shang Chi, but not as the title role.
