Exes Exceed X-Men

Sorry, that headline was just too good to pass up.

Looks like word-of-mouth did X3 no favors with a -66.9% drop from last week’s record revenue. Meanwhile An Inconvenient Truth jumps up 382.1% as it went from 4 to 77 screens.

    I’ve not heard any good reviews of The Breakup besides Vince Vaughn doing his usual good job, everyone else (and the story) suck.

    Over The Hedge is awesome and everyone needs to go see it. Now. Geeks will be excused for a multmedia seminar provided they file the correct form in triplicate.

      Over the Hedge is worth actually paying theater prices for. (And I don’t give out that high a compliment very often)

      X-Men probably was too, but only if you stay for the last bit after the credits.

  2. X-Men Hating?
    There sure seems to be a lot of it. I had only 2 problems with it, and they were relatively minor.

    1) I want more X-men!
    2) Crammed too much into too little space.

    #2 is probably the source of all the gripes I hear that aren’t fanboyish whining. A lot of adaptations do this, but X-men 3 seems to take it to a whole new level, resulting in the quick death of Scott, Phoenix not doing much until the very end, etc. Anyhow, I enjoyed the movie. X2 is my favorite X-men movie, but X3 was still fun.

        Err… spoiler much?

        Holy crap, I’m so sorry! I didn’t even realize what I was saying! Any way somebody can edit my post?
