      OVERLORD_CHAOS!  2 months back

      last stand and dark phoenix are the worst.
      also even that the action scenes are decent the story and dialog is pure rotten garbage.
      and stop making videos you seem quite sad doug aka nostalgia critic. you clearly are burned down or depressed.

                  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'd never really hated X men 3, i still find it really funny to watch. is not a perfect movie, but come one we live in a world where batman and superman becom friends just because their mothers have the same name, so it couldn't be worse

                            No one is saying this movie didn't have moments. The reason people hate thisis because it's cool moments wasted on a forgettable film.

                                            My older brother used to be a huge fan of comic book movies and this was literally the movie that ended it for him. Kinda sad.

                                              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.

But that's just my opinion.

                                                                        • Avery Merrick

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.

                                                                          • Brandon Jones

                                                                                      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.
