While I like the cure story, it has a pretty simple solution. Let mutants have the right to choose the cure if they want it. For a school that literally teaches kids how to control their powers, the teachers (especially Storm, fuck off with your clouds) seem very ignorant of the fact that a lot of mutants don't want their powers and many are too destructive and SHOULD be taken away. See ROGUE DAMN IT.
A better story, and this could have been the whole movie and forgotten about the Phoenix plot, would be the government debating whether they should MAKE every mutant take the cure. It would be especially interesting given that Beast has a position in government, and both sides would make a lot of sense, just like in Captain America 3. Storm's position would make sense because she knows that powers can be controlled and she helps teach that herself, but Rogue's position would make sense because she has a power that can literally only destroy.
They could do something like the government can't decide so they scrap the idea pf forcing everyone to take the cure, then the final fight could be the mutants for and against the cure fighting each other like it already is, but it would have a TOTALLY different context. Maybe the ones against the cure are just trying to destroy it so no one has the chance to take it, and the X-Men want to save it so they can protect the freedom to choose it.

Jean Grey's power was already mentioned growing early in the second movie, whatever the trigger was, i doubt the water did more than perhaps hasten the inevitable, if anything at all.

Tbh, most of the xmen movies has wolverine as the star so its pretty fair comparison. In fact Logan is basically Days of Future Past but the sentinals were gmo crops and they won since they were passive mutant killers.

the golden gate bridge scene was one of several scenes that made whichever characters deus ex machina the plot along... whereas iron balls took time and cooperation convening in the blood of an unwitting security guard... three has solid moments but x2 is under-rated (and x1 is over-rated)

I didn't know about the meme until tonight. I never care much for Juggernaut. So when I saw that, I thought it was funny and it's so memorable, sorry.
I so wish the Phoenix stuff wasn't here. The cure storyline had so much potential. Most of the stuff around that is pretty good. But the Phoenix stuff is such a huge distraction and takes time away from fully developing the cure story. Ugh. And how the hell did they hire the guy who wrote this to do it again!?

Hey check it, the movies complaints are about the abhorrent plot line and the contrived way they killed off characters for no good reason. No one's complaints about the movie was "the visuals weren't cool enough" and your sarcastic condescension about how "I'm just trying to find something cool in this movie!" is so fucking stupid and misses the point entirely so you can cram in your own pretend version of what the complaints about the movie are.

I mean, unless you think the visuals are the way to tell a story.

If magneto wanted to kill the cure kid and could lift a fucking bridge, why didn’t he just destroy the building he was inside? Most large buildings have a steel frame, he could easily crush the frame of the building on everyone inside killing them all in 5 seconds. Movie over.

Vindicated by History: For a long while, it was considered the lowest rung in the X-Men movie franchise by a lot of fans for one reason or another (Change in directors, wonky writing, Cyclops getting shafted again and killed off, the Phoenix being Jean's Split Personality instead of an initially good cosmic being that was just corrupted by evil forces, clashing the storyline with one about a mutant cure). But over the years, fans eased up on the movie and admit it's not as bad as initially viewed or word of mouth would suggest. Especially true after the mess that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine and, years later down the line, the second attempt at the Phoenix Saga, Dark Phoenix. The latter film, while trying to be more accurate to the comics, didn't do the story any better and is actually compared unfavourably to The Last Stand by both fans and professional critics, who cite that its middling tone fails to match the fun and energy of its predecessor.

Let's be honest, X-Men 3 is basicly like Spider-Man 3. Despite these movies having really stupid moments and scenes, you are also lying by saying that these movies didn't have good moments either. X-Men 3 for example didn't really hold back with Magneto's abilities and that bridge scene was pretty awesome. Spider-Man 3 also had some memorable scenes, especialy I really liked Sadman's first introduction despite the movie being the worst one in the Sam Raimi trilogy.
Both movies are bad, but at the same time they had some good ideas as well. So calling them the worst movies ever made is a bit of an exageration.

Rogue giving up her powers was actually a really interesting plot point and choice. Playing it as if she just wanted to touch Bobby and there was no prior history or the fact that she literally can't have physical contact with anybody, and not only for sexual purpose is a bit shallow. People need contact with other people and Rogue was struggling with her powers since the first XMen movie, was used by magneto because of them and almost killed and still doesn't have a grasp on them. It's one of the best moments in the movie for me, because Rogue made a mature and difficult choice.

One X-Men character I'm partially thankful didn't make it into these movies was Sauron. For those who don't know him, which is probably a lot of you, Sauron was a minor X-Men villain who was inspired by Lord of the Rings, hence his name. He resembled a humanoid pterodactyl and had the powers of flight, energy absorption similar to Rogue, and hypnosis via eye contact. He was a really cool character, and I feel he could've added a lot to these films, but I also feel they would've ruined him

9:34 When I saw this in the theater back in the day, roughly a third of the audience laughed aloud at this line (including myself, because it just felt so forced and written rather than convincing dialogue, even coming from a great actor like Stewart). It's the first thing I think of when someone mentions this film.
