You sure you sent it? I think you're pulling my leg.

The R3 Korea version is probably the best one to get.  There is a version with a limited metal case which is slightly more expensive than the digipack version, and it includes the bonus disc that was mysteriously omitted from the R1 release (probably so they can double dip later on).  There is also an R3 Korea version that includes the comic.

I don't know if it's been mentioned earlier... In fact this might be comon knowledge. But for you who didn't stay for the whole duration of the end titles; there's a little scene after them that brings a little hope to the story. Check it out if you haven't already.

What, Bryan Singer shows up and promises to re-shot the film?

No, they just take back one more thing that happened in the film. Basically by the end of the credits the entire film has been negated with the exception of two character deaths, one of which has never stayed dead long in the comics.

So, yes, Singer could reshoot the entire film, and it wouldn't matter.

I think Ratner is getting an unfair amount of the blame. That's not to say he's blameless but other people such as script writers and studio execs (and to a limited extent, Bryan Singer himself) all share some of the blame. I also feel that Singer would not neccessarily have saved the day (although it would have been better to some extent). After seeing Superman Returns I thought it was highly overrated. I'm not saying the film was rubbish but there were areas where I felt it was severely lacking. It was certainly made with much more care and thought than X-Men 3 but whether or not that extra effort paid off is open for debate as far as I'm concerned.

I thought Fox pushed X-Men 3 into production too soon.   They just wanted a summer tent pole film to bring in cash in theaters and on DVD.  I liked the film, but it isn't as good as teh first two.  It even got me thinking how I could come up with a better plot for the next X-Men film (it is easy to do given the cast of characters and storylines from the comics).

For me what sums it up is the following. X-Men 3 delivered exactly what I was expecting. I knew it was going to be a flawed movie when you looked at it's production history. Superman failed to deliver what I expected. I was expecting an excellent movie that I had every intention of buying on DVD. Instead what I saw was a good movie that was enjoyable once but I did not feel a need to buy on DVD. Although it has many good points it was at times I felt a very turgid film

In past post on the subject of X 3 I've said that I hoped Ratner would surprise us with a good film and that we should give him a chance. I thought this because I believed he did an ok job with Red Dragon, given the fact that he'd mainly just done videos and Rush Hour movies. Listening to him on the behind the scenes docs on Red Dragon also led me to believe that he was at least putting some thought in to the process.

However, have seen the finished version of X 3 and his behaviour and general attitude on the set of the film, my opinion has shifted. I was wrong to back this horse. He does indeed appear to be a fat loudmouth who, at best, managed to get the quota of set-ups shot each day. What a hero to Fox he must be. He must be first in line for AvP2 or Predator 3.

The film is very 'on the surface' and has no real repeat viewing value.

I wish I hadn't bothered wasting my money buying the third film. As previously mentioned the scene at the end of the credits basically undoes everything...

The two major characters that lose their powers will probably get them back, Prof X can be played by a new actor, did anyone actually see a body for Phoenix's first victim? and if you read the comics you'll learn that Dark Phoenix wasn't actually Jean Grey anyway...

What a crock...!!!

(I don't think that I gave any specific spoilers away there but if I did can someone cover them up for me..)
