I saw this on Friday. It was alright.

-The action was pretty good.
-The story itself was pretty good. I would've rather they did The Phoenix Saga or whatever, but time constraints being what they are in films, I can deal.
-The acting was pretty good.
-"I don't have to explain myself, least of all to you." (As opposed to "I know you object, but I made a choice")
-"You of all people know how fast the weather can change."
-No explanation of who Beast was. We're told he used to be at the Mansion, but are given no...y'know...INFORMATION.
-Colossus has one line.
-And some information/demonstration about how the "cure" worked would've been nice.
-Angel had no reason to be in the movie.

I guess Xavier was referring to Wolverine somehow being like Jean/Phoenix by blocking out (or having blocked out) his memories and living on the edge of being this really cool guy and being a feral beast?
But yeah..it was out of character for Xavier to say that.
Perhaps the stress and actually fighting for control over Jean's mind can make one cranky..

As for Beast/McCoy..wasn't he on a tv screen in the background somewhere in X2? In human form?

I saw it last night with the wife and we both thought it was several varieties of awesome. A great movie all around. Sure it had some cheesy dialogue here and there, but what comic book movie doesnt?

I remembered to stay after the credits but I didnt tell my wife why. When everyone got up to leave, I told her "Watch, you can tell who the internet nerds are by who stays and who leaves" and sure enough, everyone who stayed were the same people who sang along with "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!".

I do have one question about the final post-credits scene: Were we supposed to know who the nurse was? I didnt recognize her.

And you know when I say "internet nerds" I mean it in the nicest possible way :)

The nurse in the post credits scene was Moira McTaggert, there was a scene earlier in the movie where Professor X was teaching a class to a group of kids and Moira McTaggert is there via video and Professor X tells them who she is.

I finally saw this as well. I did not think it was any varieties of awesome (sorry Frosty!), but it was better than I expected. I liked the Beast, for instance, much more than I thought I would.

Unfortunately, the clunky, obvious, thudding dialogue and gaping continuity errors kinda sank it.

Also, something that really bothered me was when they find Cyclops's glasses -- you know, the ones without which he cannot control his optic blasts? -- but they don't find Scott, and they don't seem concerned about it or anything.

They're all like, "Well, we COULD look for him...OR we could just wait until Jean wakes up and then casually ask 'oh, say, also, have you seen Scott? We were kind of wondering.'"

Man, there's NOTHING like being part of a TEAM.

P.S. Yes, Moira McTaggert -- she was at the funeral, too, I think. The actress is Olivia Williams -- she was uncredited in this film. You might recognize the her from Rushmore (as the teacher) or The Sixth Sense (as the wife).

EDIT! P.P.S. Hey, wasn't there some kind of rumor that Brett Ratner was going to add a mutant prostitute/superpowered seductress character? Did I imagine that? Anyway, it's probably for the best that that didn't pan out.

It's been a couple of weeks since I saw the movie, so I don't remember the dilogue, but presumably Wolverine and Storm (is that who went with him?) looked around pretty hard and for quite a while before giving up their search. And Scott I would assume was impossible to find, if what Jean did to the professor is any indication.

Hey, yeah, whatever did happen to (I think her name was) Stacey X? They probably cut her out of the script because they didn't have enough time in the movie for such a fucking stupid idea.

Well first of all I bet Scott has more than one pair of glasses plus he has the optic thing from his costume so I don't think finding a pair of Scott's glasses necessarily means he's running around without any glasses. As for why they didn't look for him, I don't think it's too difficult just to assume they did. They shouldn't have to show every single thing in a movie unless you want an hour of the movie to be the X-Men wandering around a lake.

A lot of the Stacy X character stuff ended up being merged into Arclight.

Not that you could tell or anything.

Question: At the end, when Magneto's playing chess in the park, a co-worker of mine said that he was able to slightly move the metal chess piece, thereby implying that the drug wasn't permanent. I guess I wasn't paying attention well enough when I saw it. Can some verify that that did indeed happen?

If so, then it's really strange that the movie was called "X-Men: Last Stand", when the only permanent thing was the death of Cyclops (and maybe the re-death of Jean Grey). I mean, Magento is still around, the extreme end shows that Professor X is still around, so how is this the "last stand"? It's not even the last X-Men movie, since I hear they're writing the script for "Wolverine".

Yes, the chess piece moved.

The chess piece moved, but just barely. I got the impression that the "cure" was permanent, but maybe not 100% effective in the case of Magneto.

And maybe the "Last Stand" title refers to the fact that even though Wolverine might get a spin-off, this was the last movie about the whole team.

"The Last Stand" refers to marketing gurus cooking up interest in the film. The writers and filmmaker had no part in the film being titled that.

Oh piffle. When a long-term teammate and friend dies I think he deserves a little more than "let's just assume that they looked for him and, not finding him, let's assume that they're somehow concerned in some small measure that they're not, in any noticeable way, expressing."

Perhaps there's a line of dialogue that I missed. It wouldn't take more that a 10-second exchange ("We sure looked hard!" "Yes! I am concerned!") to satisfy me.
