    If any of you have the soundtrack, listen to 'Dark Phoenix's Tragedy' and around the 2:05 mark (I think it's when Jean stands up out of her chair and starts to lift Xavier out of his), just imagine what the real Phoenix effect would have looked like. In tandem with this music. It would have blown people's minds completely - Jean standing up, facing Xavier, and then spreading her arms and having the effect appear behind her, obliterating the front of the house.

    Just listen to the track and you'll see what I'm getting at. The music in this scene is astounding!

    My God ...the wasted potential... it almost hurts.

    well i thought there was absolutely no tie in from the fire in X2 to no fire in x3, i mean common not even the fire in the background did anything when "phoenix" used her powers. :|

    You know, I'm actually not too sure how to do that! I paid for it on itunes (couldn't find it anywhere else)... I would though if I could... it's a really really amazing piece of the score!

    I don't think that they should have used fire as much as raw energy maybe if when she's making out with cyke she could steal his optic blast energy and we could see the energy forming about her.

    If you have a Yahoo! name for mail, you have a Geocities site.
    You can upload it on Geocities and send a link from there.

    There are other ways.
    You don't have to.
    I might just go by the soundtrack when I can get a ride.

    Hell, I thought about the Phoenix effect when she spread her arms. That would have been PERFECT. Now why DID she spread her arms like that? I think they intended on putting the Phoenix effect there, but something happened...

    Thanks for taking care of the hosting guys...

    You really have to hear this... it's incredible when you picture it with the firebird... it would have been a talked about moment for months... probably years to come!



    Yeah maybe he actually wrote that part of the score after being told that the Phoenix effect was in but then the fools decided to cut it out in post...

    I don't know... none of it makes any sense...

    It wasn't even potential. It was already there. Singer set it up at the end of X2 with Jean being surrounded by flame and fire in her eyes as she sacrificed herself. It was right there for their taking, and for some reason, they changed the way her powers appear completely.

    And I hope no one brings up money. Does anyone realistically think that the fire effects were so much more expensive and time consuming than the black vein effects that they weren't worth using here, continuity be damned? Doubtful.
