If you like X-Men, weep for this franchise. I've got to run now, but I'll fill in the details later.

Ok, apparently Fox has never known what to do with the X-Men franchise. They never believed in it because it breaks many cardinal rules, specifically "too many stars" and "too many characters." Fortunately for them, Bryan Singer is a moviemaker who knows what he's doing. But since the franchise started, Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman's stock, and salary, has risen. Fox dilly-dallied getting X3 made, so Warner Bros. seized the opportunity and lured Bryan Singer away with the carrot that is Superman. So, now X3 will not be made by a "moviemaker," but by a "corporation." What I mean by that is Singer respects the characters and story, but he's gone, leaving the franchise in the hands of Fox Suits. Fox knows that the franchise is a cash cow, but they care more about dollars than story, naturally. The script has gone through no less than six rewrites, with different script doctors doing it each time, some of which have "instructions" from Fox to increase the "star's" screen time in order to insure they come back. For instance, Halle Berry is demanding less working hours + more screen time, and since Halle Berry is the biggest star in the X-Men franchise, she gets it. Fox ultimately cares about the final dollar count, and Berry is a box-office draw - hence the reasoning behind... Well, you can read it for yourself at the links below. SPOILER alert if you do - you've been warne. Suffice it to say, Fox is desecrating my favorite comic book series. Off with their heads.

Oh, and Singer's Superman Returns is going well. Lex Luthor will be played by Kevin Spacey, and Zod by Jude Law. Great casting both times.

gotta go with you there Yspaz

watch the next installment fall flat...shame. i use to be a real voracious comic reader, collector into my early teens...still have a box of vintage DC (mostly) comics. love the genre, was my first artistic love, had my own league of super women (the JLA didn't have enought—and hated Wonder woman, but i had her as a member anyway)

ahhh the memories...wonder where those comic books are too!

poda


p.s. thanks for the info links Yesspaz

X-amples

Thanx for the dismal update, FF mytholgy twisted in the new movie as usual. the Puppet Master must have been Vin Ryames.
Still, I thought Ben was great , the torch Hot, the ending....
Popcorn was great. My Favorite Wrightson creation went big screen, and...plop. Sometimes a supergem appears(spidy1) but usually we get a Catwoman, or a Swampthing

uh, as a non X-man fan I don't have a huge problem with Halle Berry screen time...

(but I feel your pain. That would be like Vivendi buying Aural Moon and featuring Britney Spears or something, to put it in terms I can understand...)

I'm sorry, but the only acceptable way to listen to Britney Spears is with the mute function engaged.

Funny things get talked about here.

Back to avatars, I'm getting stoked about the new King's X album, and so I've put a Tape Head era photo up.

Re: Why that avatar?

I chose my avatar for two reasons; I live in the country on 5 acres and it reminds me of my home base and Michael Hedges was one of the most amazing guitarists ever and died an unfortunate early death, so it's a bit of a homage to him.

Got a problem with that?

Re: Why that avatar?

For me, this avatar is very memorable.
5 years ago we family went to Japanese whisky distillery.
We (especially I) could get fresh air, woody flavour and tasty whisky...excellent atmosphere!
This memory's always takin' me by storm.

Of course, the man on the avatar is me.

Thank you.

Re: Why that avatar?

Meerkats are cool! I took this at the "fellow earthlings wildlife center" in Morongo Valley, CA where you can adopt one of the little buggers, visit with them, and feed them, they're a trip! Besides, you don't want to see my ugly mug.
