I just got home from seeing X2.

It blows the first movie away.

I was simply amazed by it.  The special effects are amazing.  There is a LOAD more violence in this film, many deaths, and quite a few surprises as well.

The groundwork for X3 was also laid in place by this film.

I'm posting sleepy, will discuss further in the morning.

Wolverine's Berry Rampage is not the non-sequitur marketing gimmick that the Baskin-Robbins website would lead you to believe, and will in fact likely earn X2 the Oscar for Visual Effects.

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.

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.

Amen sister! Nightcrawler is the only reason I want to see this movie at all. I wasn't all that impressed with the first, but as long as they don't totally screw up Nightcrawler's character I'm sure I'll enjoy this one.

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.
