Re: X-Men 3: WHY all the hate?...seriously it was awesome!
For me, my problem with the movie was simply that it seemed like the script was this grand, sprawling epic, but then like 40% of the movie was cut out, and all we were left with was a collection of random scenes that shakily held the overall plot together, but failed to create an great sense of in-movie continuity or quality.
Wolverine: Origins had the exact same problem; I played the video game first, and it was quite possibly the most perfect Wolverine story you could've had for a movie. But then when I saw the actual movie, again, 40% of the scenes that had really enriched and improved the game were totally absent from the film.
It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
