    I sure am. I've found most of todays action movies camera work absolutely horrible. Shaky cameras, really grainy images, too close during the action (Lord of the Rings to be specific on the last one).
    The only movie i haven't had a problem with lately is Star wars.
    But this film looks amazing. Wide angle establishing shots, actually being able to see where a punch lands, and the camera seems to actually seem to be level and on a tripod or crane, and not in the Directors hand.
    That Juggernaut scene where he throws Wolverine and the Iceman/Pyro Duel are good examples of this.
    X3 is gonna kick ass, and i can't wait25 more days to see it

    I love the Iceman/Pyro scene, 'cause it looks like it's right off a comic page. In fact, it looks like a classic panel where Havoc and Cyclops realize their powers don't work on each other.

    You have a point on some of LOTR battle scenes. When the camera is too close everything becomes a blur.

    X3 definitely looking good on that front from trailers and TV spots.

    Stole the words right out of my mouth....I love the wide, side view shot where the fire and ice are meeting in the middle, it really is like it's torn right out of the comics.

    Ratner looks like he made sure to not do something blatantly diferent than Singer so far with cinematography... that could prove to be a good move.

    I think the cinematography is pretty standard-issue, actually. But that's OK as while it's a little less "ratner," it complements the other films very very well.

    yeah cinematography does indeed kick ass, it's tough to catch the full scope of a war and get individuals who have talents you want to emphisize(i.e. an xmen movie) so yeah i'm terribley expecting too much, but Red Dragon definatley has some neat angles and view points in it, and excellent coverage, so that is the standerd i am holding brett ratner too.....we will just have to wait and see i guess

    Can't beat superman returns' but it looks bloody passable. I don't like how they did the sentinel at all.

    but it's the directing i'm worried about. some of the acting reminds me of bad acting from power rangers in the clips and if singer's movies didn't exist I probably wouldn't think twice about it, but ratner, you have to maintain that quality or what's the point of all this?

    I have never seen "good" wire work. It's the nature of the beast.

    To me, it seems like a more lushly put together interpretation of the Singer, look, which seems to perfectly honor the original films and set the tone of the new one.
