    Default The Wolverine

    How was it? Worth the $15 bucks?

    Wasn't quite the letdown that X-Men Origins: Wolverine was, but it didn't get especially interesting until a post credits scene, which I will not spoil.

    It wasn't a terrible movie, it was just easily forgettable when stacked up against Pacific Rim et al.

    Man of Steel, by comparison, was a terrible movie, but at least it had more memorable moments (if only for all the wrong reasons), so in an odd way, you could say that this was a "better" movie.

    And do ninjas really move like cheap CG stunt doubles?

    I wouldn't spend $15.00...the 3D is useless.

    Definitely not worth the 3D thing--though I AM appreciative that it didn't try to get all gimmicky and 3D oriented when making it. I just think 3D should be left to films meant to be visually stimulating like Avatar and cartoon movies. It's really useless otherwise.

    Ditto on the post-movie part. That part was pretty cool. And they didn't make you sit through ALL the credits to watch it, also appreciated.

    1. I am bias because I literally like almost anything even remotely resembling Japan in it.
    2. .. Well. Okay, there is no two. If there has to be one, I'm easily entertained and don't often hate movies.

    It wasn't awesome, or even memorable, but it wasn't awful. I would have rather watched it at the dollar theater though.

    Does Wolvie go badass/psycho killer berserk ala mansion scene in X2? 'Cause it is the only real reason for me to see this movie.

    I own the graphic novel the movie is based upon (and I am 99.9% sure the novel is better than the movie).

    Dollar theatre -- gotcha!

    I loved the graphic novel when I read it years ago. Scared to watch this...

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
