The Drive In Of DOOM! – X Men: The Last Stand

Hello and welcome back to DOOM!’s exploration of the Comic Book film genre hosted by Aaron Poole and JJ Hawkins. This month, we feature our first guest commentator, Elizabeth Neal, as we look at a movie that takes three people to process…Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand, or as everyone calls it X-Men 3. Come suffer with us as we watch everything that had gone right in the X-Men movies so far, get destroyed in a whirling tornado of bad film-making and grossly misunderstanding the source material. What. A. Train. Wreck.

Yep. That is the most dynamic shot I found of our heroes, folks.

Some things are very right and make a lot of sense…

…and some don’t make any damned sense at all. Why is Peter carrying this in human form? He’s not stronger, just a dude carrying a big fuck all TV under his arm.

and the saddest thing of all, a generation of children put off reading, because even they thought the story was weak.

No Real drinking game this month. We actually watched the movie and talked about it. Go fig. Make up your own and feel free to post it in the comment thread.

    In my own defense I did say it was my favorite of the first four films. First Class is a far better movie than any of the others. That being said none of them are great X-Men stories, or ‘my X-Men’ as you would. That is something, though, you learn to tolerate as an X-Men fan. Ya take the good with the bad. In this case, Last Stand gave me enough mutie action to keep me happy with 200% more Kitty and about 30% less Wolverine than the other two.
