I will admit I liked X-3, I blatantly see how people can dislike it so much though. Kinberg is a pretty meh writer though, I haven't seen Mr and Mrs Smith yet though and I've heard good things. Remember Penn fighting Fox the whole time even get DP in the story. And even he has many reservations about the final film. Yet as a writer Penn is pretty good. Even if you ever read his Last Action Hero script(the original). So no I see no argument beyond "X-3 sucked so Penn sucks" yeah and MArio Puzo wrote a pretty camped up 60's batman show Superman script that had to be heavily rewritten. So I don't ****ing care.

I guess I can get past fanboyish feelings.

I dont think Penn is that bad of a writer, but IMO hes not that great of a writer. I just think hes average. If he pulls it off great, awesome. But he really hasnt shown me anything to make me behind him 100%. And by the way, I just go by the credits Penn is credited for the story along with Singer and Hayter, not the screenplay.
