X-men Origins: Wolverine


Claws claws claws claws claws claws claws claws claws Gambit claws.

Sigh. What a waste of Emma Frost.

(Geek continuity check: this movie takes place before she had the power to turn into diamond, you Philistines!)

Rating: Yeah, bro!%

I was thinking the other day that if I were a reviewer on R3, I would write about the crappy ad for the wolverine retractable claws for kids. They would get half a star/10% only because the child actor needs to shave his forearms.

Also, the belt buckle in this picture is sweet.

Belabras said...

Yeah, they dropped Emma's telepathy too.

I liked the movie (it's a solid popcorn action flick), but honestly, I'm more interested in the Deadpool spinoff.

Wolfgang and I saw X-Men Orgins: Wolverine last night. We talked about it and asked ourselves what would be more desirable: adamantium claws or an adamantium schlong. Wolf thought it would be great if I had adamantium claws—all the better to scratch him with. He likes it when I’m like a feral cat in bed. Wolf was surprised when I said I didn’t want him to have an adamantium schlong because that would be soft compared to what he has now.

Evan, I really don't think you can evoke any kind of geek continuity check on this movie, unless you want your head to explode.

I'm still going to go see it right after I get home from the "country" (Yonkers).

Looks like the Trek movie threw continuity out the door as well.

But it did bring all non-canon books and comics back into the fold with their new take on the franchise.

Chris said...

Something was missing from this movie, but I still can't figure it out.

At least it wasn't as bad as X-Men 3.

So I finally got around to seeing this just now and I don't know what everyone's bitching about. I went to see some shit get cut up and some shit got cut up. That's solid movie satisfaction in my book. And half/full naked Hugh Jackman certainly doesn't hurt, either.

@Chris: Nothing could ever be as bad as X-Men 3. I'm still trying to figure out what that tranny was doing in that movie. (Not that I don't love trannies, but seriously, what the hell was that thing?)

laurie said...

Also, I love the story that Hugh Jackman tells in this video.

Evan J. Peterson said...

Laurie, you mean this woman?

She's not a tranny, she's just a model. They're all intersex nowadays.

laurie said...

Your mom is intersex.

Chris said...

I thought the action was pretty weak. Like, I could filmed that shit. At home.

Bertha said...

I don’t think Hugh Jackman is very sexy. If I had a choice between having Hugh Jackman or having a burger, I’d choose a burger for sure. Especially if that burger came from Denny’s Late Nite Rock Star menu. You can’t order from that menu during the day but that’s OK. Going there at night is awesome. Denny’s used to be a place where troubled youth hung out. I remember a long time ago having to throw food and chairs at punks who’d make fun of me. But that doesn’t happen anymore. Denny’s has gone upscale. Michelin gives them 5 stars in their Guide Gourmand (that’s the good-value, eating-places version of the snotty Red Guide). They always treat me real good there.

Fake R3 Persona said...

displays rudimentary knowledge of satire

@FR3P
If you're gonna pick on R3 characters, use a character. Get a name. Do some keg stands with nBNL and split a bucket of chicken with Bertha. Be someone else, or be yourself. But don't bully other posters with a smug, lazy, mean placeholder persona. Take a risk like the rest of us.

laurie said...

@Chris: Sure you could have.
