I can't see it here, but I did see a teaser a while ago. It didn't look too bad. I don't really have any basis of comparison, since I never saw the first two.

Though I must say, the name Ratner strikes fear in my heart. In general, I think he's perhaps better suited to producing TV shows than directing. Kind of like Bruckheimer.

By the way, Jed. Go get the new Neko Case today. I know I am going to partake of that beautiful red tressed songstress' new offering.

Think of the delicious!

Kern said...

Oh, and earlier I didn't mean to imply that Bruckheimer directed, I just meant he's better suited to TV.

Neko - send me some songs through e-mail old man!

Downloaded the Ryan Adams stuff - LOVED IT!

X3 - you skipped the first two!?!? 1 is ok - but 2 is pretty darn good.

Ratner is horrible... that's why I was shocked that this looked so good!

I am still scared. I loved X2, and X3 is a combination of the Dark Pheonix saga and a new X-MEN story line that our old friend Josh Weaton wrote. I was online and I read an interview with Ratner on this movie (yes I am that much of an X-Men geek). First he sort of made me happy ("I inherited the script from Singer and I barly changed a thing."), but then he made me a little scared. He started talking like Singer was a god he would try to live up to. That just freaked me out. OK, X2 was just about the most perfect X-Men movie that ever could have been made. I like to sit down and watch it with the commentaries on while cleaning the house or something just because I love it that much. However, The Dark Pheonix saga is about the most structurally complex plot lines in the X-Men library. In addition the whole plot line of the mutant cure is also a rather daunting plot. To combine those great story lines with Ratner's professed love of Singer's original script is a major danger sign. Oh, and they add three new characters. I mean that screen is going to get mighty crowded. Ratner just seems like he's just trying to please everyone rather than rely on his own feelings on the direction of the movie, which never works, but maybe that's because he has no real direction. I think he has just taken on more than he can adequately handle in a two hour movie.

It would be like if the next Spiderman movie was all about Venom. Oops! It is! Fear for Spiderman 3!!!

I could sense a tone of disbelief. Though I like Prison Break quite a bit, and he is exec producer of that.

How big are the attachments you can take?

Glad you liked that Ryan stuff. My friends here that are true Ryan-philes go to RyanAdams.org. Apparently there are all kinds of links to concerts,etc. all over the place. I figured you'd like that stuff because it was done with Rawlings and Welch, kind of like Heartbreaker. God what a great album Heartbreaker is...

Deit Heimley said...

Something dirty there in the way you asked how large of an attachment he could handle. Maybe it's just me.

And how could you like Prison Break??? Seriously, who are you?? But who am I to talk. My favorite show right now is Project Runway.

Kern said...

Heh. Nice one, Deit. I liked the first year of Whedon's run. The "second season" of Astonishing X-Men just started last week with issue thirteen.

Kern said...

I don't know why I like Prison Break. It's like, I know it's implausible and kind of edited like a music video, and chock full of stock prison characters, but I mean, it's got Robin Tunney, for God's sake! I'm not made of stone!

Oh, and I watch Project Runway as well. Don't you remember that article I wrote about MTV's Next? I totally admitted to my garbage television addiction.
