    1 hour and 43 minutes ? That's it ? Seems kind of short, especially if this is the last one as we're being led to believe. IIRC, the first one was around the same length, right ?

    [face_dancing] We got one!

    Wasn't it the wierdest thing hearing Jackman talk in his natural accent, then all of the sudden switch to the Logan voice in the clip? I was like woahhh...

    Cool clip, got to see Collussus switch into the tin-man then throw Wolverine, then the Sentinel Head. :cool:

    I know, I'm startin' to get really pumped about this film! That was great how he lit the cigar at the beginning while all the other stuff was going on around.

    I too was a little disoriented with the Aussie --> American thing. ;)

    Sorta corny, but that's gotta be the Danger Room so...I can live with it.

    And Sentinel Head = Awesomeness!

    ...Fastball special?

    Sentinals?

    Goddammit now I have to watch this movie.

    I don't expect much but I need to see those things on the big screen.

    The worst thing is, that those aren't even good representations of what they're going for, but I still have to see it.

    I mean it's a 150 mil movie and the Sentile effects are lousy search lights? And when that rock lands on the car it just lands straight down like it dropped from the sky, not at an angle like it should. Thats just lazy. And the Colussus CGI is a huge downgrade from X-2. And this is the part that bugs me most, When Jackman is tossed, we hear sounds and then the head drops and he comes out from behind it.

    2 things

    1. How the **** did the head get launched like that? If the body fell we would hear something. But it's just the head like someone threw it.

    2. Where the hell did Logan come from? It appeared like he was riding the head but looking at the trailer you can plainly see that he's no where on it. How did he just appear?

    They couldn't wait for singer. They just had to run it into the ground.

    Goddammit Fox.

    I wouldn't go quite so far but I had some of the same feelings.

    Hopefully its taken far out of context and they'll have time to brush up those effects.

    I know it's being nit picky, but damnit X-Men was a comic book movie series that got it. The start of the first one with Lensher in the concentration camp was the perfect way to start it out. Singer understands the X-men (probably his being gay has something to do with that) as good as the recent best writers of the X titles (Morrison, Whedon, some Millar, and early Clarmount). With every new thing released about this movieit seems that instead of carrying on the tone of the first two this seeks to dazzle us with flashyness and style with no substance. And then to add the insult to injury they add all these fan waves, as if thats enough to make up for the fact that they honestly have no idea what they're doing anymore.

    Yep, I'd agree.

    They really seem to be trying to through everything and the kitchen sink into this one and in some ways it seems a little flat.

    Seeing as the whole scene takes place in the Danger Room I think that helps answer your questions. I would guess that the audience will be teased with the shoddy, not so clear Sentinal shots for the early Danger Room scene to make them more impressive when they show up for real later in the film

    1. I think it was implyed that Logan was launched onto the Sentinal and cut/ripped it's head off. Kind of exagerates his strength but still feasible I think.

    2. It's the Danger Room. Think of it as the holodeck from Star Trek. The room is only so big but the holographic battlefiends might be much bigger. You could be right next to someone but 50 ft away on the battlefield. I bet that in the same shot of Wolverine walking out from behind the Sentinal head, the battlefield breaks down to revel the danger room.

    Just my thoughts.

    That Leno clip looked ridiculous. Awful dialogue, cheesy interaction, and an overall lame action sequence. X3 will be horrible.
