Everything Wrong With Bryan Singer's X-MEN & X-Men 2 In 10 Minutes

James Mangold's The Wolverine is about to open in theaters, so that means it's time for Cinema Sins to nitpick the snot out of past X-Men films. Batter's up, X-Men and X2: X-Men United.

BlackJack10 - i promise you can have x3
LucasMend - 7/24/2013, 7:03 PM
haha that was awesome. X-Men 1 is indeed very problematic. X-Men 2 still one of the best CBM ever, but too much wolverine.

CinemaSins get's boring fast
CaptainAmerica - 7/24/2013, 7:15 PM
Agreed^

Best thing about FC: no spotlight on wolverine. hope someday we see an x-men movie with no wolverine as the center again.

loooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
ManCalledSting - 7/24/2013, 7:26 PM
So knit picking fanboys made a video for other knit picking fanboys to rally around?
LucasMend - 7/24/2013, 7:27 PM
@LEVITIKUZ that's why X2 is still better. Agree that FC is boring at times, but still a good movie. better than xshit3 and xshitorigins.
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/24/2013, 7:28 PM
So they make all these videos yet they say they have no time to do Iron Man 3?
ManCalledSting - 7/24/2013, 7:39 PM
I like X1 & X2 a lot, very good movies. Watching it now, X3 is still bad, but not as bad as it was.
TelaVizion - 7/24/2013, 7:40 PM
You can never have too much Wolverine. That was the main best thing about the 1st trilogy. Its also why X3 was the best of the original trilogy.
DudeGuyMan - 7/24/2013, 7:47 PM
They raped Cyclops so hard in X3. He's supposed to be the leader of the X-Men and he's a babling in the corner for the short time he's in the movie.
LucasMend - 7/24/2013, 8:12 PM
@LEVITIKUZ I say x3 is shit mainly because compared to the second, But I can still watch it at times, different of spider-man 3 and x-men origins, which are [frick]ing boring and so awful that it hurts, but x3 is a good dumb fun for beast scenes.

People who don't like singers movies say the same damn things

--Storm didn't speak in swahili
--Why is wolverine even in this movie
--the leather suits blah blah

And my favorite Mathew vaughn and his Lenny kravitz daughter as a wasp girl deserve an Oscar they're the only ones who understand the x-men

X 1 was great problematic writing are u kidding me?

It was the most straight forward story you can get

Really really people who say storm ruined it for them are just repeating sentiments they think are popular.

How about some emotional depth and characterization people.

And those who champion fist ass ( excuse that meme )
Remember vaughn only cheapened these characters by having Kevin bacon molest magneto a dowdy mystique with body image issues and bullet proof suits that ended up not working.

O but I'm sure banshee was faithfully adapted

LOL.. I love these! I dont take them seriously though, as most of the time they're just humorous nit picks.

One Glaring one was the X2 one--- where he nitpicks Rogue and the jet...Its OBVIOUS that the point was that Rogue CAN"T fly the jet and haphazardly dropped it nearby.
kevberg - 7/24/2013, 9:34 PM
seeing these again make me wanna watch them.. they're shot so well. just interesting composition and lighting.
Logan5 - 7/24/2013, 10:16 PM
I respect Singer. SDCC ate him and the cast up! Actually, through the postage stamp, I saw of the panel.., it looked like they ate them up.
Logan5 - 7/24/2013, 10:17 PM
X2 is still great!
xXkryptoniteXx - 7/24/2013, 10:19 PM
Xmen 2 is still a kick ass movie and was well recieved hence why part 3 had a huge success. Too bad x3 just sucked and it really fooled everyone since x2 had a great teaser ending.
TheWolverine08 - 7/24/2013, 10:19 PM
Wolverine was awesome in X2! Still one of my favorite CBMs.
deamon - 7/24/2013, 10:23 PM
Everything wrong with haters in 5 sec or less:
They're brainless.
TheAbomination - 7/24/2013, 10:36 PM
Fvck Singer and his family. If he ruins Days of Future Past, I'm done.
fistofthenorthstar - 7/24/2013, 11:24 PM
is this even necessary?
exirae - 7/24/2013, 11:46 PM
2 things that should be noted about singers xmen movies. But they really reduce to one, the MCU wouldn't exist if not for them.

1) if marvel had the rights to xmen they wouldn't be making movies about their b-list characters

2) the first Xmen kicked off the golden age of CBMs, sure it had its antecedents, but xmen and X2 were instrumental in establishing the genre in its modern sense.

So suck it up, and let it be. Even if its as a necessary evil.
SugarYumYum - 7/24/2013, 11:52 PM
Wait a minute... you mean Cyclops has actually been in a X-men movie?




Someone got some splainin' to do.

MightyZeus - 7/25/2013, 1:10 AM
Bryan Singer is to blame for X men and X 2 yet people still praise the weirdo.
MightyZeus - 7/25/2013, 1:13 AM
X men First Class is still the best though.
Fry - 7/25/2013, 1:23 AM
Bryan Singer did a great job with the X Men franchise and help establish the comicbook era we live nowadays.

I think we all kind of hate this franhise now because of The Last Stand and Wolverine Origins.

Let's welcome this new episode with an open mind this time.

( And now that we have Man of Steel, we can even forgive him about Superman Returns ). It's ok Bryan, we don't hate you anymore. :)




R888 - 7/25/2013, 1:29 AM
I just hate X men origins but love the rest
R888 - 7/25/2013, 1:32 AM
Oh wait cyclops was killed in X men 3 [frick] you Brett Ratner
SugarYumYum - 7/25/2013, 2:36 AM
@Fry:

I always feel like such a oddball whenever people say that as I actually didn't care for this franchise from X1 onwards. Even at ten years old I thought X1 was mediocre and X2 was better but not good enough to stick with me (like Raimi's Spiderman did). All X3 and Origins did was turn the "meh" into hate.

Chances are though that I would have liked those movies more if they had actually done all my favorite X-men justice but lol nope. Rogue was [frick]ed. Jubliee was [frick]ed. Storm was [frick]ed. Cyclops was REALLY [frick]ed and Gambit was nowhere to be found... then they [frick]ed him up too.

First Class, however, was great and is pretty much the only X-film I love... which is why I'll be catching DOFP when it comes on cable.
TheBigBoss917 - 7/25/2013, 3:16 AM
barely any sins to nitpick at a lot less then the marvel studios movies
nach1wan - 7/25/2013, 4:01 AM
oh come on, x-men 2 is flawless. the best of the bunch

say what you will about x-men 1, flawed but awesome
superstaff - 7/25/2013, 4:51 AM
@exirae - Yep, agreed. Seems people still don't want to give credit where it's due. Love or hate the X-Men movies, they opened the floodgates in a lot of ways. Sure, we had CBMs before 2000 and the Superman and Batman movies (the first ones in each respective series at least) were big but I believe this movie was what made them seem more like a modern spectacle.

Just two more web assholes enjoying their 15 minutes of "fame"..
