NCS or Video Game Depot.

I've also used and recommend Tronix and The Rage.  Buyrite is another I've used a couple times without incident, but I've read many customer service horror stories.

I'll boldly assume you're wanting the Gamecube version, so you'll need a modded system or a Freeloader boot disc ($20).

She gave up the accent.  Which helped quite a bit.  I felt she did far better in this film than in the previous one.

Agreed.  It moved way faster than the previous one.  I didn't realize that it was over 2 hours long until it was over.

I read enough previews and a review of the script to know who died. It's a nice change to not have every villian killed off and/or everything wrapped up nice and tidy by the end like most movies.

I wondered about that too, but what I think happened was the bone was shattered by the 200 lb boulder that crushed his arm - leaving him ample spaces to cut through.

Have the trolls gone yet?

X2 was a huge amount of fun imo, and many millions of times better than the first one. Nuts to the social commentary etc., it's simply a great action movie, and a wonderful nostalgia trip. Seems a lot more mature than the first one - not intellectually speaking - but in the sense that it has grizzly (though largely bloodless) death occuring throughout.

I wondered about that myself.  My only conclusion was that it was beyond his capabilities to do anything about.  The volume of water was too much.

I agree.  The first few trailers really had me rolling my eyes, but this one actually makes me look forward to the movie.  The Hulk still looks a bit like a rubber doll, but so did Spiderman, so I'm sure it won't be a deal breaker if the movie is good otherwise.

I don't consider myself a signature snob, but this signature is much better than yours.

So much better than the first one, or spider man, or maybe even batman.  Maybe, just maybe, the best comic book movie of all time.  Less of the spiffyness of being mutants and more of the reality (if such a reality existed) of being mutants.  It was lovely.

As for Bobby/Iceman...yes, that would be way beyond his current power level, at least in terms of the movie.

Yes, WAY better than the first movie.  Storm was useful this time around and everything was pumped up to a higher level.

A few plot holes, but nothing to get in the way of enjoying the movie ... worth seeing in the theatre, no doubt.

Well I enjoyed it, that's for sure and I'll definitely agree it was better than the first, could have used more Collosus and more Nightcrawler (after the first 5 minutes nearly all of his teleporting was off camera!). I wouldn't say it was better than either Spider-man or Batman though. They also need more recurring bad guys, Magneto and Mystique just don't seem like enough to go up against the entire X-Men crew. I feel it also suffered from some of the same problems as the first, they essentially ignored many of the relationships that there are between many of the characters in the comics. Last time it was the history between Wolverine and Sabertooth that was the most glaring and they did the same thing again between Wolverine and Yoriko. I don't think it would destroy the movie if they just admitted there was some history between these characters instead of them being totally oblivious to each other. Still thoroughly enjoyed it, might even see it again should the opportunity arise.

It's a Steve Buscemi vibe.

Trunk: Dude, the movie was 2 hours long, what did you what? Frankly, I sorta thought it was TOO close to the comics in some regards.

Colossus was VERY cool, but lets be real - it made sense to send him away to watch the kids, and frankly, he alone would have blown the whole FX budget. Show more Colossus, or show Jean Grey manifest the Phoenix?  Talk about Wolvy's history with Lady D, or just get to what has to be one of the coolest fights in movie history? I mean, seeing those two stab each other over and over again...man. And the mansion attack soooo reminded me of when Wolverine snuck into the Hellfire club to rescue Jean.  

I was happy to see hints of Kitty Pryde, Banshee's daughter, Leech, and of course Beast. Not to mention the one thing I didn't expect at all, the rise of the Phoenix.

I mean, I think singer does a hell of a job giving fans of the comic nods left and right, but he can only do soo much. Too much history, and the movie would have just bogged down into the Wolverine show. While Wolvy could carry a movie, this was the Xmen after all.  

Now seriously, open a window, cause I think I geeked up the room.
