Wasn't that Man-Thing, the Marvel character? (or did I miss something beyond that silliness?)
That said, the Swamp Thing TV show (live action) was quite good and fairly close to being in keeping with... well the Len Wein/Bernie Wrightson Swampy. Alan Moore's wouldn't translate too well.


You're right, it was Man-Thing...and man was that thing awful!! LOL
Has anyone seen any Sentinals in this one? I had heard that they were trying to do some CGI tricks to put them in but I didnt know if it was just a nasty rumor
I'll agree with Matt here.  I remembered being very psyched when Hannibal (the book) was released.  I read it with a few days of being released and was shocked about how I\'ll conceived the novel was considering the time lapsed from Silence of the Lamb (nearly 10 years)!  Hannibal, the film, was one of the rare cases of the movie being better than the book.  Then again, that isn't really saying much seeing how bad the book was.

I really liked Red Dragon.  I can't really pinpoint a reason why.  Maybe I just really liked Ralph Fiennes as Dolorhide.  I think this movie suceeded despite Rattner due to some really good actors.
I liked Hannibal myself; with some of the changes made from the novel to screenplay, it's one of the rare cases where the film turns out better than the book. Red Dragon was okay and a serviceable thriller, but Ratner didn't put any style in it to make it stand out from all of the other cookie-cutter, serial killer movies out there and most of the performances are too bland and labored.
Still say X2 and Hulk beat the c**p out of ANY of the Superman films every day of the week. Despite some questionable tactics, Singer got the job done on the X-men films.

What exactly, from a critical standpoint, is wrong with Hannibal? Is it too silly? Too Gory? I've yet to read a convincing indictment of the film beyond the usual "It sucks".
Hey at least Ratner hasn't told his cast--to my knowledge--not to read comics for fear that they'll come out with a 2d character.
For that c**p alone Bryan Singer should be banned from comic-based movies Tongue (especially after the comparative new portal into the second dimension that was the horribly character-raped Lady Deathstrike of X2...)

...though the look of Juggernaut is not exactly, uh, getting me all excited about seeing it.
PS: Hannibal makes me depressed everytime I remember Ridley Scott was involved. What a waste.
I think Ratner has showed no creative voice of his own in a single one of his films. And for the record, I liked Hannibal way more than Red Dragon, at least it was entertaining, Red Dragon was so blah.

I enjoyed Red Dragon even when compared to the superior theatrical version of the novel, "Manhunter." So do I. Red Dragon wasn't bad, I actually like it.

I may be making assumptions but it isn't based on the teaser trailer, but the fact that they didn't keep Singer as the director.  Brett Ratner is no Bryan Singer!

Brett has to step up his game after that great movie that was X2, but I think he might pull it off because he makes a good action movie.  Maybe it will be better, maybe not.  I don't foresee it doing badly though.  

You are right about one thing though...Juggernaut looks awful! But I kinda figured his costume would after hearing they had an actor to portray him, a not so big guy at that. I would've thought they'd go CG with that character, like they did with the Hulk.  It's the only way you can pull off his feats of strength, unless they don't plan on making him so strong.

So far as Deadpool goes, I've heard he's getting his own film, Avi Arid's discribing it as a Sci Fi movie rather than a super hero movie.

Personally I could go for another Punisher flick, especially if Jane came back, they set it in New York, and followed the Ennis "Welcome Back Frank" story even more closely. I smell another thread...


I thought I smelled something.


If they do make a Deadpool movie, they'd be wise to stick it on the Sci-Fi Channel.  Not a major character/candidate for the big screen.  And besides, not all of their characters are suitable for the big/little screen.  When will they learn?  
The recent Swamp Thing movie, a DC product, was AWFUL! didn't they learn from the mistake that was the 80s movie?  I guess not.

Cable and Bishop are okay characters.  Bishop has become one of my favorite members of the team.  If they ever put his character in a movie, I hope that either Ving Rhames or Michael Jai White(Spawn)plays the role.

Seriously, X men 2 may very well be the best comic book adaptation ever, which makes the inevitable averageness of this coming sequel even more upsetting.
Mr. Flix, your DVD collection isn't working right. And you have your active code disabled.

They are in the process of making another Punisher and they are making a SE of the dvd.  Jane is coming back as Punisher as well.

I know it would involve WAAAAAY to much backstory but id love to see them put Bishop, Cable, and Deadpool in
I think it is quite likely that the funeral is Jean Grey's before she comes back as the Phoenix.
Jean dies and become the Phoenix.....hopefully Happy
No its not jean grey. The beast was not there when jean died!

I can't get the trailer to work here at work. The photo still of Beast looks VERY campy, like verging on Batman and Robin, or maybe he fell out of the tornado from OZ.
I have to think X-Men 3 will be quite a let down.  Bryan Singer is awesome.  Brett Ratner, no so much.  Beast does look pretty campy.  He would have probably been better off as a CGI voiced by Kelsey Grammer.  Also, Juggernaut doesn't look right.
I loved the first two. I am afraid that this may be a let down. I will go see it, and face my fears, nonetheless.

It sounded pretty good. I'll see it when it is released.
X3 teaser

Watch it and fill your pants. It looks wicked. And Gabe, what? campy? Beast looks insane.

I don't like Ratner's work, but it looks like the established material will more then carry this one.
Ugh, the news on this just keeps getting worse and worse. Beast looks mega campy. I suppose the Angel pics aren't bad...maybe Ratner will just end up ripping off Singer's style in the end. That would be a saving grace, because I haven't liked a single Ratner films yet. Seriously, how do you mess up Red Dragon? That was a slam dunk! It was so dull it hurt.
