The Journal Comic Jeff Rowland Wishes He Could Do.

Friday, June 02, 2006


Just to recap: X-men 3 sucks. Don't see it. If at all possible, anti-see it. Invert its spectrum and play it backwards.

If the Academy ever comes to be meaningful as a quality selective body, Halle Barry should feel obligated to turn in her Oscar.

Posted too early the first time and there's no edit feature.

Wow, apparently Zach's accuracy on movies is as bad as when he's playing TFC. Makes me want to see the Davinci Code if all movies Zach hates are this good.

My thinking, if movies were supposed to be like real-life, mutant powers would be a sixth finger and cancer.

Well, I agree with what Zach said! I hated X-3! He had some serious points here!

I liked it alright, but only because I went in with the lowest of low expectations. I thought it was going to kill me, but I made it out alive and I was pleased with that result.

I think the problem with your evaluation is that movies shouldn't be judged based on just one scale. In reality, there are two scales.

There's Bad ~ Good, in which X-men 3 rates very low. This was not unexpected.

Then there's Boring ~ Awesome, in which movies like X-men 3 and Chronicles of Riddick score very high. He kills him with a motherf**king teacup!

Pip pip. X-3 was the Awesomest Bad movie ever!

Was there a scene that was done correctly?

Bad-Good scale answer: Hell no!

Boring-Awesome scale answer: What's a "scene"? X-3 rawks!1!!1

hmm.. I thought it would be a 7/10 on the good-bad scale because it accomplished its goals: Be entertaining, be like a comic book.

Ok, so I'll pose another question. Does anyone think there has been a better COMIC BOOK movie?

I think only the origional Tim-Burton Batman.

Better comic books movies:

-Spiderman I
-Xmen 1 and 2
-Batman 1
-Superman 2 and 3

How fast and loose are we playing with the comics thing?

What about Ghost World and other serious comic-based films? Road to Perdition? American Splendor?

When you're watching a movie, do you ever think "they could totally have done this scene in a much better/more entertaining/more believable fashion"?

The answer to that question was a resounding YES for so much of X-3.

Don't get me wrong, I was highly entertained. But it was a compromised entertainment for several reasons:

Lack of effort.
Lack of vision.
Pandering to the masses.

So, I recommend heartily to anyone I know who likes such movies to run out and see it yesterday, cuz stuff blowed up good.

But my mind and my heart weeps (overdramatization of my real feeling) for what could have been.

X-Men 1 and 2 sucked way more, so I wasn't that dissapointed.
I still can't believe that some people revere old comic books, they suck as much as current ones. Their plots are probably even more ridiculous. That silly anti-fashion is part of some "alternative" ideology?

And yes, I posted too late.
