So do I... so do I. I was watching a bit of the movie Taken, and gosh, Famke looks great. Especially in this one scene where she was standing by the doorway and her hair started blowing cause of the breeze... and I thought to myself, Gods, she is Jean Grey.

I haven't seen much of James Marsden in what he's done...I hope Bryan calls both of them lol.

Currently watching Eulogy. Its pretty funny. Famke plays a lesbian...

James Marsden will be appearing in Anchorman 2 as a rival of Ron Burgundy.

Yup, he worries about Jean at the intro of X2 then hes Prof X body guard and is out the rest of the movie till the climax. Hes either written around or just flat out dropped in X2 and 3. His only real importance is being in a relationship with Jean And like you said its there more for Logan.

I had no interest in seeing Hanzel and Gretel until I heard Famke was in it. I want to see it for her, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.

I don't have to DESTROY anyone's opinion. When they present an uninformed or biased one, they do it to themselves.
Oh. I'm sorry, I didn't realize movie opinions had to be scientific and empirical, and not a subjective experience. Do you do a content analysis of all of a character's lines, and lines about the character, and make various graphs and charts that prove your opinion in completely unbiased and neutral manner? If someone says that Pyro was better characterized it's because they personally connected with the character more, felt the character was more memorable, liked the character arc more, and/or saw the character as more important. Facts are mostly irrelevant when talking about art and entertainment.

Hey, think nothing of it. We all make mistakes.

I didn't say they couldn't be a subjective "experience". I said nothing about the "experience" of the film at all. I was speaking as to who had a better role in the franchise.

No, as I'm smart enough not to need to do that. I can discuss things and support my opinion without making graphs and charts.

Right...and if that's the reason they think he had a "better role" or that he was "better characterized", then they're doing so without being objective. Because based on what you just said, they're coming to this conclusion simply because they liked Pyro better. Hence my comment about not being objective.

For instance, I liked Iceman in the films, but I'm not going to say something silly like "Iceman was better developed than Wolverine was".

Quote:

Yes, facts are. The actual components of the film that create the art and the entertainment...no, those things are not irrelevant. Oh, and that's just your opinion.

The movie Hanzel and Gretel was okay....Famke wasn't in it that much but she was quite good in it with what she had to work with. while you see her in prosthetics make up and what not, you do get to see her 'human' form. I might give this a second viewing.

Hansel and Gretel was terrible. Not because of Famke. But because of....well, everything else.

I'd prefer it if the time-travelling causes Jean and Scott (and Havoc) to be born earlier in the First Class timeline.

Perhaps that indeed was Scott, Jean, and Storm when Xavier was using Cerebro in First Class.

If DoFP takes place in 1973 like they're saying, they'd be in their early/mid-twenties (since Scott looked to be in his teens in First Class). = New Casting = getting to see Jean, Scott (and perhaps Storm) joining the Xmen for the first time (something we haven't seen before) = Jean and Scott in awesome blue and yellow costumes = Xmen franchise permanently migrating to the 70's and going from there

Jean Grey -- younger casting (Imogen Poots - 23)
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


Scott Summers -- younger casting (Chace Crawford - 27)
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


(note that the butterfly effect can account for slightly different genes, and thus why they won't look the same when Cyclops and Jean are 30 like in X1-3 )

heck yes
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

I just find this whole "You don't agree with me so your opinions are stupid" approach funny,but mainly sad. Seems like someone's just frustrated cause people don't agree with him.

And I know we can't be crazy, because a lot of people don't like how Cyclops was done in the trilogy. And you know its true when the actor playing him talks about how people walk up to him say he never got his due.

I don't think he was developed that good. They wanted to make it seem that way but his story in X2-X3 is just he loves Jean and Jean dies so he's real depressed. Obviously he should have had more to do...but they can bring him back and really develop him. James Marsden can star as the lead of an X-Men film.

January Jones was kinda stiff in the role but for me, she didn't really bother me.

She was miscast for the role. Emma Frost is a humorous, saucy diva you love to hate. January basically showed up in her Mad Men phase as Betty Draper, just dressed in white. She didn't do a thing differently, trust me. Perhaps if they had kept her in diamond form 100% of the time I could've suspended my disbelief for longer.

Her diamond form looked phenomenal. Of course, that had nothing to do with January Jones' acting.
