X-Men 3 Writer Brought Back For First Class Sequel

| Filed under: Film FlickersWacky, Tacky & True

XMen Stupidness

X-Men 3: The Last Stand was everybody's favorite X-Men movie, right??

Wait, quit shouting, "Wrong!!" at your computers!

Ohhhhh that's right, it's regarded as the worst of the films and left a bad taste in everybody's mouth. A lot of people blame Ratner for directing it (he was probably dosed on shrimp), but he didn't just direct everything on the fly — the story came from somewhere.

And it came from Simon Kinberg.

So why would the production company totally redeem its franchise with X-Men: First Class and then decide to hire one of the people to blame for making the last one so bad??

Makes no sense!

Does this make U want to see the sequel less??

  1. 1

    X2 was by far the best. Great film. The others suck as did Wolverine.



  2. 2

    the first and the second Xmen movie were AMAZING. the third blehhh. wolverine, dumb! Xmen first class, loved it!



  3. 3

    The story of Last stand, abysmal. Then directing was pretty heavy handed, so I'm pessimistic. I still wonder why Magneto just didn't drop the bridge on the building and soldiers themselves….. oh yeah, bad movie, that's why.



  4. 4

    what they did to Phoenix in the 3rd film was criminal.

    Huh. Not sure I understand the bitterness, here - I really enjoyed First Class. Thought the casting was so spot on, and as origin sotries go, it was pretty cool.

    What I thought was wrong with it was the crowding of *who cares* characters into it - didn't need Bug Girl, or Tolken, or. . . whichever other totally one dimensional, forgettable characters I'm forgetting. But Xavier and Eric - that was fun to watch.

    Whatevs, Perez. Last Stand was infinitely worse - I'm pretty OK with the same writer.

    I really enjoyed the story telling of Xmen first class and would love to see a sequel. Some people I could certainly do without (Zoe Kravits character? boring!). But I think Michael Fassbinder and James McAvoy were incredible! They could probably also dump January Jones' character, she was also quite lackluster.

    Also, where are you getting your info perez? According to Rotten tomatoes they have 87% positive reviews. Doesn't seem like they got that much flack for the film.

    The people who made either X2 or First Class should be the only people in charge of making a new one. Those two were the best in the franchise.

    Whoa - wtf, I thought First Class was the worst one? It's odd that 3 is being considered the worst when I thoguht it was really good.

    moogsie-boo and fid, you two completely misunderstood the story. It says that "Last Stand" is the worst movie in the series and that "First Class" was so good that it redeemed the series. It was written quite clearly so how you got that mixed up is sad.
