Now, the film I want to talk about is 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'. First of all, this is the one movie coming out this year that I show the most disrespect towards. I remember that there was this report sent around by some guy who helped work on the movie(have no idea who and I have no idea if it's fake or not because it has disappeared off of the face of the internet) and the report went something like this(short description): "Although this film has a great director attached, a great lead and supporting actor and great action sequences; this film's dialogue is horrible, the other supporting actors/actresses deliver poor performances, the story has been thrown-together, the added characters are only added in to raise it's hype amongst fans and the editing is horrendous." Now, the majority of this could be false. Or the majority of it could be right. But all that I know is that... I'm sold on this claim. From the last trailer that I've seen of this film, along with the TV spots, the majority of these claims have been confirmed for me. The dialogue is horrible("I know who you are, Gambit", no shit), from the remaining supporting actors/actresses I've seen in the trailers... they are horrible(Ryan Reynolds once again starring as Ryan Reynolds, William Stryker as the reverse opposite of Brian Cox and "I think you made him angry" guy; yet another example of bad dialogue), the story does seem to be lackluster(pretty much a repeat of the Bruce Wayne/Batman story, with the way his parents died in his presence and how he hasn't been able to find himself ever since), I do believe these characters have just been thrown in for the sake of having them(and they've already ruined Deadpool, based around what I've heard who gets his head chopped of by Wolverine, strung back on and turns into the polar-opposite of Deadpool's character in the comics who has two katanas coming out of his wrists or something and strange tattoos on his face) and finally, I can't judge on whether or not the editing will be horrible(but I'm betting it will be). So, as you can see, I am clearly
not excited to see this movie. The only movie I'm excited to see this year is 'Terminator: Salvation', but 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' just looks to be a sloppy-mess, aiming to earn the Benjamin Franklin's to make more shit-infested atom-bombs. Back to the topic, with making a prequel to a movie, you have to leave the audience at the end of the movie asking questions that they must
have answered. Sure, with 'Wolverine' it seems like a good idea. But with the way they ended 'X2' with Wolverine choosing to save his friends and be with them rather than learn about his past, that should've set the statement for this prequel, because if the character himself doesn't care... why should we?...
P.S. Fuck you, 20th Century Fox. Can't wait until the day when you lose the rights to all of the video game and comic-book movie adaption properties you own.
