*facepalm*

I guess I just don't get this whole third act turning into a different movie talk.

Where did you expect it to go? The movie was building to the final act. You knew there was a giant silver samurai for wolverine to fight. Was wolvie not going to fight it? Was there not going to be a climactic tag-battle between wolverine, SS, viper and Yukio?? It was built up almost the whole movie...

By the time the final act rolled around I WANTED a brawl with the giant SS and viper and yukio. It was great to me. A slow build into a firework finish, then the dust settles. It didn't falter for me that much. A little, but not much. It won me over after a certain thing happened with wolverine at the very end.

I thought iron man 3 was mediocre then morphed to complete crap by the end because it was never iron man. It was Robert Downey jr fooling around with iron man suits, plus a completely butchered mandarin(even worse than Deadpool).

Man of steel very solid through out with some filming hiccups. again with a greatly satisfying 3rd act.(just because we haven't seen superman really FIGHT until now)

I LOVE the Comicbook brawls, and I love the slow grind character studies. Having both of those aspects in my wolverine movie really works for me because it was just logically heading that way. Best of both worlds in one movie. Anything less would have been disappointing. Just pointing out my view on the final act.

when Wolvie gets his claws snapped off, we see that he can grow/regenerate the bone claws. That said, I don't get why he lost his adamantium claws at all. It seemed like an arbitrary thing to lose... I mean, I get the motif of a hero losing their powers in order to regain humanity but since he still has claws and powers... I dunno, it's just annoying :P Bad timing if he's going to be fighting a bunch of robots in the next movie
I have somewhat the same feelings on it, it came out of the blue but we all could tell where it was going with that. I just wish that they could have given them back to him! I mean there's all this adamantium lying around them, they had the means to do it post movie. All it needed was a quick explanation while he and Yukio were on the plane. Hopefully Magneto helps out with that in DoFP.

Well ...wasn't a robot. Everything stayed in tact for me and paid off.

More reminiscent of what we've seen Wolvie do in the comics? We've seen Wolvie do almost EVERYTHING in the comics. Including fighting giant robots, which he doesnt in this film. And he did fight through the ninjas to get to Mariko, did you miss that part? He was taken out and brought in to complete the extraction.

*facepalm*

Harada seemed very flip-floppy to me, I wish he was fleshed out more because it seemed as if he was very unclear with his aliances. I mean yes, he was Mariko's protector and in love with her, but why would he side with Yoshida aside from the ninja clan code. If they developed the backstory of the ninja's a little more, it would just be the final touch I needed for that aspect.

Haha well it's not like they can just staple them back on. If you notice, the few people milling around get the f**k out once the fighting starts. And even if they found the right guy to do the operation it's not like he'd automatically know how to cut Logan open to replace the claws.

I wouldn't worry though, that will definitely have an impact in future films.

I thought it was very clear

His allegiance was to the Black Clan throughout, which he was second in command of. But even then he went out of his way to go against his leader when Mariko's life was on the line.

I didn't see any back and forth regarding his motivations.

I can't wait to see that full, uncut scene. It's be brutal. BUT I really liked the way they took him down. They were smart. Once the first few guys got taken out they didn't just throw everyone at it and instead out smarted him. Good writing

Indeed... Even though I too can't wait for the uncut scene, it made TOTAL sense that he wouldn't friggin waste precious time on fighting endless ninjas. He was fighting to get to Mariko the whole time, fighting through the poision of the arrows etc...

And it just looked painful. That's how you do violence with a PG-13.

They basically did to Wolverine what was done to Hulk in The Avengers: make him get hurt/fatigued. Even after he gets his full healing factor back. It hearkens back to what Roger Ebert said about Origins:

Why should I care about this guy? He feels no pain and nothing can kill him, so therefore he's essentially a story device for action sequences.

And it was like Wolverine didn't know how to process it. It reminded me a little of a scene that was cut from X-Men, after he stabbed Rogue by accident. He told her that he'd tried to kill himself a bunch of times, but it never worked. But what she did made him feel what it was like to be dying for the first time, and he realized he didn't like it.

I stand corrected, I should have done my research better but I do remember an 8.5 rating for some reason.

If it were up to me the posters/promo images for the movie would have been the rice paper art followed by images like this:

I hope they release those images without the text once the movie is out. They are gorgeous.

Just checked and they're not uploaded yet. Once they're on there you can post them.


And I just noticed this one on the Facebook page:



First time they've used two different quotes of mine for one movie. Woot
