RE: Seen the unfinshed cut
I don't care what the critics say, or you film critics say, I will judge for myself. I never go by what someone else says when it comes to a movie. Besides, it's Hugh Jackman, and that man is FINE, I could watch him reading a phonebook.  More

RE: Seen the unfinshed cut
Never would i even compare Spider-man 2 to The Dark Knight, I've never been a Marvel comics fan but i liked the x-men movies i despise spider-man even though I am a Sam Raimi fan, and yeah i saw the workprint edition but i saw it again finished this time and i retract what i said about it being up to scratch with the first x-men. Plus it was a moment of weakness it's one of the two films i've ever watched online. I'm the guy that drags my friends to the cinema which exactly what I did yesterday More

RE: Odd thing
So I just watched it and i've got  aquestion about the scene after the credits     SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!     Okay so the director said there were multiple endings after the end credits. The one I had was Wolverine drinking in a bar in Japan setting up Wolverine 2. I Read through IMDB and apparently there is one with Deadpool but there is conflicting reports of what actually happens in it (one person says that the headless corpse of Weapon XI tou More

RE: Odd thing
empire review is up. Most reviews aren't great. But a lot are just saying 'not as good as expected.' I didn't expect it to be amazing, so hopefully I will be a little bit surprised. Hopefully :)  More

RE: Odd thing
On second thought, I don't want to know! Gonna wait until I've seen it. The mood around so far is so-so and I don't want to pre-judge.  More

RE: Odd thing
Was surprised to find that Empire hadn't reviewed this yet. Sitting on it 'til tomorrow perhaps? Going to see this tonight at the 10:30 showing. Really looking foward to it, but will wait with bated breath so as not to feel the bitter dissapointment of X3 all over again o_O.  More

Odd thing
Norwegian newspaper gave it three out of six, and calls the film disappointing. How did -they- manage to see it?? And the review was published six hours ago. Saying it was mostly just actionscene after actionscene, so apparently a norwegian journalist have seen either an illegal copy or a mash of trailers ^^ Link to the site: elser/5956343/  More

RE: Whyyyy..are we..waiiiiiiting....
Well if there's been no critic screening then how have Total Film got a review (in print, no less) out? I've read that there was something of an embargo from Fox which is why very, very few sites have put official reviews up. However I personally think either TF's review is pieced together from trailers/etc, they've seen the leaked workprint or they were granted special permission/early screening by Fox.   Thing is, there are certain cinemas have late night showings (around 10.30) More
