By popular demand, Sybil looks back at one of the most maligned comic book movies ever produced. But will she say what you want her to say about it?
“Maybe I hadn’t given Singer enough credit before, and X2 would be a lot better than I remember it being. It wasn’t. It was worse. Way worse.”
“Jesus, maybe it’s just the line reading the actress gives, but the only way this scene could be less subtle is if Wolverine suddenly broke into a song and dance routine.”
“It’s a refreshingly outlandish concept, but unfortunately, the kooky title and premise of this movie end up being the most entertaining aspects of it.”
Solkir examines the recurring themes of the movie version of X-Men and its 2003 sequel X2! What is this sim-ball-ism of which you speak? Never heard of such a thing.
“It gets really, really dumb. It honestly starts feeling uncomfortably like a deleted scene from X-Men Origins: Cheap-looking CGI, nonsensical plot developments, and laughable execution. The only thing that prevents it from having the worst payoff to a mystery in a movie this year is the fact that Star Trek Into Darkness came out.”
On this episode of Movie Madhouse, Josh examines Taken 2, the follow-up to that one movie you remember from a few years ago with that one scene. Back for a pointless, ever-so-slightly xenophobic sequel, Liam Neeson is... the Taken guy.
