X-Men 3

We went and saw X-Men 3 last night, in Cambridge.

Hmmm. I understand why they're saying that was the last of the series (but that they may do spin-offs). There were quite a few 'named mutants' they got rid of, one way or another. Rogue, Prof Xavier, Magneto, Mystique, Jean Grey, Scott, though perhaps, just perhaps, they aren't all gone.

  • Scott - we didn't see him go.

  • Xavier - well, he's been reincarnated (you did see the post-credits scene?)

  • Magneto - he's still alive, just stripped of his powers. Yet, we see him just able to influence a chess piece, so perhaps the 'cure' isn't permanent.

  • Mystique - again, she's just been stripped of her powers.

  • Rogue - ditto.

  • Jean Grey - well, OK, she's dead. Again.
Anyone else amused by the way that when the bridge arrives at Alcatraz, it's daylight, but when Magneto and co. actually walk off the end, it's night? Big bang SFX just look so much better by night, don't they?
