Really sharp reading of the mind-boggling X3, from Jane Dark’s sugarhigh!:

One by one, the X-Women are stripped of their powers: by cure, by election, and by death…The idea of the aging babe as destroyer of worlds belongs to Hollywood itself, wherein “world” always means market share.

    I thought the whole ending of the film was ripped off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Season Six Finale.

    There was also a disturbing lack of “crisis of conscience” (for lack of a better phrase) - when the supposed good guys strip Magneto of his powers using the cure. It just seemed that that should have evoked a more powerful reaction.

    Eh, the whole movie was a mess.

    And Famke Janssen apparently got into Stevie Nick’s wardrobe before filming…

    They were showing X2 on the plane, and I suddenly realized that everything wrong with everything could be explained by the fact that Helen Mirren will never get to play a supervillain.
