Some X-Men Movie Whining

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , , on 06/13/2016 by McCutcheon

Maybe I’m just not getting it. I don’t believe that at all, I’m just trying to figure out the mindset in making these movies. I guess because you have actors like Fassbender and co., nobody feels like they actually have to make a cohesive story?

Whatever, just let me whine. Specifically about the insistence that Magneto and Mystique aren’t really all that bad.

While many make the argument that comic book movies need no plot consistency due to the source material’s lack thereof, I say two things; One- you don’t read comics, do you? There are plot devices used over a period of fifty to sixty years sure, but these are two hour movies with millions of dollars put into them. Show some respect!

And two- Why are you arguing for lack of consistency, period? These holes are so big you might as well fit another trilogy in them!

In any case, I’ve found this mega-hit to be full of plot holes and convenient plot devices that are so obvious, Ben Affleck’s Daredevil could see them.It’s not that they’re all holes but also some questions that would have made the movie more sensible.

Why would should they reboot a franchise that’s doing so well financially as of this last movie anyway?

Well, I’ll tell you why. Step into my office.

Has the question ever been posed to you “If you could have any super power, what would it be?”

Sure, it’s bound to pop up here and there. Most people stick with flying, invisibility, the “basic stuff.” Most people will bounce back and forth between something Superman, Spider-Man, Wolverine, or Batman can do. But Batman can’t be counted people. Having a lot of money and a perfect body doesn’t count as a power. Try again.

Then there are the powers where writers have dug deep to come up with an ability that just wouldn’t pop into the average person’s brain. But once you’ve seen their movie, the general public just breezes right over them. Why? My guess would have something to do with how they’re portrayed. Continue reading
