Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't an X-men movie originally planned back in like 94-95? I know it was piggybacking on the success of the Fox X-men cartoon

Its got to be online seeing as Ive read it - although I no longer have it. Surprisingly -aside from being more cohesive and featuring a cool aerial dogfight scene, it really isnt that much better than the one they filmed. It feels more like Indy should, Marion is better...but it goes downhill pretty quickly and the script brings a bunch of brand new problems to the table.

Glad to see Alien 3 getting the respect it deserves -its a few years too late though. Aliens is dumb fun but if you look at the Alien series as a whole, its the odd one out.

The Frank Darabont script for Indy 4. I mean, I loved the one we got, but this one was great too! But it did have some of its downers. Indy's introduction, him muttering "Damn kids" seemed wrong. Indy getting eaten by a giant snake. Another plane battle, the alien turning into Hitler. And the ending, Indy didn't need to explain to Marion why he didn't choose to have all the power he wanted. But alot of the ideas were used in Indy 4. A surprising amount. The crystal skulls, the warehouse scene (the one in the film is better) Doom Town, South America, the giant ants, and the aliens. But here were alot of great ideas. I think his name is Yuri. He is the Mac character of the script. He was great too. And I sort of liked the love triangle between Indy and Marion's wife. Indy in the museum fighting the Thin Man. Him sneaking into his house when the agents were searching for him. A small but great appearance from his father. Lots of great ideas. But still, I'm happy with what we got.

I still to this day would love to see The Batman script by Tom (Superman: The Movie) Mankiewicz that Batman, Robin, The Joker, Rupert Thorne, and Silver St. Cloud. I'd love it if they would even animate this! I like this script.

The Sam Hamm version of Batman before Warren Skarren got a hold of it and made Napier the Waynes killer.

Batman: Darknight that had Scarecrow and Man-Bat.

Batman: Triumphant that had Batman and Scarecrow.

Batman vs. Superman script from what I read was good.

The X-Men script that was posted sounded awesome and better than the the other X-Men movies.

They end up all meeting to stop Veidt who's plan is to go back in time and stop the creation of Dr. Manhattan and thus stop the dystopian future they live in. Dr. Manhattan kills him as a result and goes back in time himself and saves himself from becoming Dr. Manhattan. The surviving heroes, Laurie, Nite-Owl and Rorschach all go back to New York where they are no longer viewed as criminals.

Yeah it even had a cameo by Alpha Flight in the very beginning. It's alright...it just feels a ton like a cartoon trying to be a movie. Lots of villains who are never developed, and many corny lines like when Professor X says to Cyclops "If we don't find him (Wolverine) first THEY WILL" (yes, it was in caps like that).

You would have preferred the airborne virus version of the Alien, with Thing-esque "are you infected or not" dynamics? : And James Cameron's Spider-Man ideas were awful.

I read James Cameron's Spider-Man script, and i all I have to say is that I'm glad Sam Raimi came along.

Oh, God. Sounds like the typical bogged down happy ending Hollywood crap when it comes to adaptions. Thank God for Snyder.

Sam Hamm's screenplay might have actually been an okay story on its own, but as an adaptation, it's just ****ing terrible.
