    Same here. Every theater in the complex was overflowing with people.

    Every time I go into one of these comic book movies, even as a casual comic fan when I was younger (although admitedly devoted animated series fan) I get totally thrown off by how completely different these movies are from the stories/characters I know.

    I enjoyed it, although I don't think I did nearly as much as any of my friends who went with me. Without spoiling anything: the trailer for Snakes on a Plane was probably the most excited the theater as a whole got.

    And I'll be seeing it over and over and over and over and over.

    There were only a few thigns that didn't work.

    Storm was given a bigger part and kewler bits, but Hally Berry can't play it well no matter how much she waves magical oscar dust over herself before a scene.

    Some of the dialogue was a little odd, but then that's cause comic books sound funny when you read them out loud.

    Some character deaths just seemed to come from no where.

    As for that which worked....

    Action, action, and more action.

    All the new faces were great: Beast, Juggy, Angel. Hell, Vinnie Jones even got to say the line we've been clamoring for ever since that little internet video came along, I didn't believe it when I heard it and me and like 10 other people just busted out laughing harder than everyone else- it's a funny line but all the more funny when you know its origins. Frasier Crane made a surprisingly great Beast. Kitty Pryde was really well done, her show down with Juggy was great ("Hey dickhead!" ^_^). And the various other mutants were, I think, well used.

    Iceman gets to ice up and give Pyro his come upance.... or however you spell that. Logan got to royally shred some folks. Colossus did more but seemingly said less. Magneto and Xavier were great; though I must confess Xavier had an odd turn of emootion at several points, seemingly without reason. I think Phoenix was well handled considering the original story line we all know they had to work around.

    The ending seemed a little bit rushed, but be sure to stick around for the bit after the credits- unlike that Matrix bullshit, this is worth waiting for.

    Spoiler:

    Mystique makes one sexy homo-sapien.


    Hey, I didn't get the Snakes on a Plane trailer! Our audience seemed greatly pleased by the movie.

    It was fun but a mild let down.

    One Time is enough for me until, the DVD release.

    It was like watching the old Godzilla movies. If you lnow Godzilla you'll no exactly what I'm talking about.

    Way to many problems from a directing standpoint. Then to lessen the impatc at the end, craptacular. For me this trilogy reminds me of Star War 4-6.

    Episode 4 was great it introduced you to the Star Wars Universe.
    Episode 5 was great for story and action.
    Episode 6 all over the place trying for closure.

    I didn't mean for it to sound like the audience didn't enjoy it, because I feel like they did. The audience I was with seemed to be very internet aware and have a warped sense of humor (surprise!). They hollared and cheered when Juggernaut properly introduced himself and roared and applauded when they heard the snakes hissing in the Snakes on a Plane trailer.

    One thing I still don't understand was
    Spoiler:
    When it panned over Jean's grave stone a lot of the theater started laughing. Am I on the outside of some inside joke?


    It's probably one of the few movies out there now worth seeing in theaters, but I won't see it again.

    The after credits bonus scene was exactly what I had hoped would happen, though I didn't really add two and two together before it was shown.
