This deserves its own thread. Its not about why I don't like X3. It's about why people rationalize us all away and its rediculous and its cut and dry why that is. Take the word fanboy and break it down..fan...a fan of something...some kind of material? Oh ok...so X-Men has a universe..they have stories. You mean they have specific stories and specific characters and specific material to draw from?! And FOX is making a movie.. wow. Why not just honor that material. Don't take a story like Phoenix and then not do it justice, do it half ass. You might as well just not do it at all. Don't take Wolverine's backstory and then half ass it. Don't take Magneto's hatred for humans and make it unclear why that is. Liberties taken are completely different than changing something completely until its almost just a joke. Batman Begins finally got it right. Honor your material and your characters. We don't care if Spider-Man makes webs or they come naturally. We don't care if Storm has an accent or not. We don't care if Batman has a love interest thats an entirely new character. Those are liberties taken. They don't change the defining reason we love the material. They don't change the character. And they don't change the story. Its like adapting a book into a movie. You wouldn't take the plot and the characters a decide to just KILL OFF half them for no reason and also just decide to do take the story and half ass it entirely. So please enough with the fanboy negativity and the oh you just don't like the movie because cyclops was killed that i'm reading EVERYWHERE. Your missing the boat completely. Who's with me?
