Though I understand the comparison you're trying to make, it's not quite the right example. The example would be more like expecting a high quality lobster when you go to Sizzler... You see, the Danger Room sequence is a scene that doesn't have anything to do with the main storyline. It's put in there as a refresher to the audiences for these characters and their powers. Read the Premiere article if you don't believe me. That's exactly what Ratner said this scene was intended to do. It's not supposed to be epic, powerful, emotional. It's not supposed to be the high quality lobster dinner. The rest of the movie, however, is. This scene is the appetizer before the main course. It's not supposed to completely fill you up, and completely satisfy you. It's supposed to tide you over until the lobster dinner comes. With that said, most of the complaining about the complaining (at least on my part, and I know from others) is not because they didn't like the clip. I agree, not everyone has the same tastes. But it's the way those concerns are being addressed. It's the doom and gloom "OH MY GOD, THIS MOVIE IS DOOMED!" because of an incomplete clip, that possibly has incomplete effects, and is not the final edit for the actual film. It's like complaining about the whole meal because your soda was flat. People who come in and say "I didn't feel that this clip was very good because of A, B, and C" are fine. It's the people running around "OMG, THIS MOVIE IS DOOMED!!!"... I.E. see Logan-whatever the rest of his name is posts on the xverse towards Penn and Kinberg, specifically Penn. That's the kind of complaining I have a problem with. It's *****ing for the sake of *****ing. Some people were underwhelmed. I highly disagree with most of the complaints about this entire franchise... I think that up to this point, the movies have captured these characters brilliantly, and it is my opinion that this movie is going to continue that success. And because of how accurate I felt these characters were, I don't understand how people can have such high complaints about these films, and how they were handled. But at least when people intelligently discuss what they felt was wrong with these movies, or what they feel will be wrong with this film, then I can respect that. See my debate in the non-spoilers forum, in the "What was so hard about getting the relationships right" thread. I don't agree with AngrySentinel or Fiery Balrog on any level. And because of my view of the movie, it is my opinion that they aren't interpreting it right. But, they can intelligently discuss what it is about the films they found to be flawed. And even if I disagree, and can't actually see their point, I can respect their opinion, because they've obviously based it on something, and aren't just looking for a reason to *****. It's the people running around "THESE GUYS ARE HACKS! THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING! THE MOVIE IS TOO SHORT, AND THE CLIP SUCKS! I COULD MAKE A BETTER SENTINEL THAN THAT!" that bugs me. That's not intelligent expression of opinion. That's *****ing.
