I like the Paradise Lost reference, it kind of makes sense for the movie, and I'm a big fan of Milton so it instantly gets me psyched.

I'm a fan of X-Men, and have been very pleased with how the two movies have come out. So, I'm eagerly awaiting the third installment :)

Indeed... :D With X-Men, they bring us one of the most impressive comic stories ever to be seen on screen...

The bit about angels fighting each other. It's the civil war in heaven Milton refers to when Lucifer and his followers are cast down... It's kind of a tragic story really... God I love Paradise Lost.

I knew this day would come... a third crappy X-men movie- I'll be damned if the first two weren't ridiculously corny and Matrix II and III-like... *Pulls out revolver* farewell, cruel world!

You'll say that about X-men but not Star Wars?

Its just so terribly cliche, corny, and scientifically innacurate- the concept is cool- people who are born with psychic abilities, and that other people are afraid of these abilities. The idea of surviving a gunshot wound to the head (You can't heal yourself if you aren't alive) and the idea of the renegade mutants trying to kill all of mankind/ one man wanting to kill all of mutantkind is just stupid and cony. The lines are somewhat cliche, and some of the action sequences are drawn out far too much IE the jet chase scene and when Wolverine is having his little match with the she-wolf as I call her.

All of which are applicable to Star Wars as well...

Sure... look at how well we deal with differences less great than that in the real world... :roll:

Ah, now I see... Star Wars doesn't have any of such drawn-out-far-to-much scenes...:roll:

Because Palpatine isn't one man out to destroy the Jedi...
