If its anything like the last two then its deffenitly going to be good



I'd say it's probably worth the download. I'll have to check it out soon. I also read that an Ameircan film company wants to make their own versions of the Death Note series. :eyes: :| I really hate American versions of everything.

Don't forget the unnecessary sequels - especially those for films that really don't deserve a sequel.

...and the insistence that anything remotely successful has to become a trilogy, even though they've barely got enough ideas to scrape out one sequel.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

Im not sure how they messed up the X-Men films(the amount of comics and storied going about, they had some awesome material to work with)
They were so awefull, most of the characters in the film were so far off the characters personalities in the comics.

Apart from xavier and logan, the rest of the film and characters were soo bad. Sucks as i am a huge comic geek when it comes to the x-men and they just ruined it :cry:

I really liked the first two X-Men films but the third was a mess. That said, I`d agree that Cyclops was given a bum deal in all three. I`m not especially well read in X-Men comics to know how faithful it all was though.

I`ve just watched, and thoroughly enjoyed, In Bruges.

They really messed up rogue, they made her look so weak and helpless. In the comics she has had her problems but been strong.
Mysteque, well not much character at all shown.

Hmm i think il stop there before i write a whole essay!!
I think im just too big of a comics geek to really enjoy the film version :lol:

I'm hoping Marvel Apes will get the big screen treatment. If they made that Lancelot Link style with actual monkeys dressed as the various superheros, that would be a serious contender for the title of Best Film Ever.

Hands up anybody who thinks that the Akira remake will still be set in Japan?
I honestly can't see how they will make it work.
