So in my opinion this the worst Nostalgia Critic review ever

  • Everybody says that in the scene where logan "learns about his past" we dont actually learn anything. Listen to what brian cox says. "All the things we did together" "All the work we did" Everything stryker says hints to logan not being an involuntary experiment. Far from it. What hes telling logan is they were partners. "But he calls him an animal!" Ever consider the falling out came later? After all the work they did? Im pissed at how this played out in later movies protraying wolverine as just another lacky/being unwilling. Imagine had it turned out that logan was helping experiment on people. Maybe even helped start the project. That He was the bad guy. That sometime after the experiment on himself that he had his change of heart turning on stryker- brutally murdering people in the proccess (starting stryker down the dark road of genocide his son would later make worse) and making him view logan as a monster and an animal. This was all before strykers son would have been born and his sons psychopathic torturing of stryker and his wife was what drove him into wanting to kill mutants, rather than the experiments to improve them theyd done for so long. Instead? We got xmen origins wolverine. Le sigh

All the X-men movies have one cool scene, but it’s short and you get nothing else. Does cyclops shoot more then once in a movie? NO! You see a mutant use their powers once and that’s it, lame! I wanna see an X-men movie where they go on SEVERAL missions and work together using their powers together in an awesome way! 6 movies and I’m still waiting! Logan is the only really good movie!

  • I feel like Doug was way too harsh in this review. The first and third movies had similar problems (too many characters, Cyclops being useless, Wolverine’s past getting brought up but no answers being found) yet it’s a bigger deal compared to the other reviews for X-Men (2000) and Last Stand. I also disagree with him about the film being too long at 134 mins. The 104 minute runtime absolutely hurt Last Stand as much as anything in that picture. At least he did imply in this review he thinks First Class, DOFP, and Logan were great movies.

It is about the phoenix forces.she broke the fucking dam by trying to stop cyclops,and it was the reason she stopped focusing on the rocket. She knew and she would leave anyway. It is clear what hides behind nostalgia critic's hasty annoying voice.Inability to understand what is going on in the film itself.

  • The reason so many kids shows have so many unlikeable leaders is because a lot of people in general hate people who constantly tell them what to do. The people who create these shows are artists that, no surprise, typically aren't big fans of authority figures who tell people what to do. This sometimes leaks into their writing of said authority figure characters. So characters that rebel against authority AKA Wolverine get more favorable writing.

  • Actually, enough iron in the blood COULD do that. If you grind up a bunch of fortified cereal in water, you can stir a magnet through it and get filaments attached to it. Get enough together and you could PLAUSIBLY meld it together into a blob and harden it into a projectile. This is a world of mutants, he can control ferromagnetic things, therefore it's plausible. Also, Rogue couldn't fly at first. She only gained the power of flight after holding onto Ms. Marvel for too long once.

  • Wolverine Key Claw - Easy, because of his sharp claws, he can bypass the digit lock of a keys edge (I literally don't know the correct term for the bumps on keys) all he has to do is turn it. What The Did To Rogue - Yes, not giving her not her powers. Seriously, just read the comments of the first film's review. Pyro's Face-Heel Turn - It's literally set up since the begining of the film. He hates humanity, outlashes at teens and attempts to kill cops, doesn't agree with the ways of the X-Men, and gets told he's a god. He has literally all the reasons to join Magneto. Only way - Iceman is not powerful enough to freeze all that water. Storm can't control all elements, only weather. Xavier can't move things with his mind, he's a telepath, not telekentic.

  • I know everyone has said these thing, but I had to say them. 1. The reason Jason made Charles think he was a little girl was because his power is not telepathy like Charles, but rather creating illusions, so he had to do that to gain his trust and it didn’t last as long as you said it did, and it was a sad moment when jason made Charles think he could walk again. 2. Pyro’s turn was not out of nowhere because throughout the movie he was guy that wanted to show off his powers and Charles restrained him, and remember that pyro attacked all of those cops in the film, so when magneto offered him to join him, he took it as freedom from xavier, so he decided to join him. 3. How is having a fast moment be followed by a slow moment a bad thing? Especially when you usually complain about when a fast moment is followed by another fast moment. 4. How is making rogue more compelling a bad thing? All they did was make her more interesting, and I don’t mind it because it makes sense that she would be scared and tortured by her powers because her power is if she touches someone, they die. Also, when rogue was originally introduced, she was a timid villain looking for forgiveness. 5. The scene with iceman’s parents was there to develop iceman. 6. The only reason you complained about the jet fight, (which was awesome) was because you are used to the animated series where they fight mutants and sentinels, but that doesn’t make the action scene bad. 7. Cyclops knew that logan and Jean had a thing because in the first film that was the whole reason he didn’t like logan. 8. Iceman is not nearly powerful enough by the time of that movie to freeze the lake. 9. Mystique making out with wolverine was a reference to the comics where they had a relationship. 10. I always felt like Jean wanted to die because she was scared of the power growing inside of her and knew about the Phoenix. So when she said it was the only way, to me she was saying it was the only way to stop the Phoenix, but little did she know that water would make her become Phoenix.

    • 11. What he discovered was that he lost his memory because of the experiment. 12. Also, while they did have a bunch of characters they did choose the right ones to focus on, iceman, wolverine, rogue, magneto, Charles, and Stryker. You know, the moment you announced x month, I got worried because I realized that you were going to rip apart x2, because I saw your days of future past video where you said you didn’t like x2. The only thing that would have been worse is if you ripped apart Logan. And honestly, I usually agree with your videos with a few exceptions like this, Donnie Darko, and a few others.

  • This is a great movie, but too many fans talk like its the "Empire Strikes Back" of Xmen trilogy (hope I'm not strawmanning too much, that is my perception though). I like all of the first five xmen movied about equally with a slight preference for X1. One advantage of X2 is that most characters and relationships have already been established. X2 gets to explore and expand these arcs and conflicts, as well a start a few new ones. Great action sequences too. In no particular order: Nightcrawler vs WH security, Wolverine vs the the invasion team, Magneto breezing out of prison the instant he is in range a few ounces of metal, Pyro finally rejects school and discipline(he's clearly fed up with holding back at the start of the movie) so unleashes his flame power at the police after they shoot Wolverine in the face, and Wolverine vs Deathstrike.

    • What I think this movie's big weakness is that villain's plan is too convoluted This is something X3 did much better. What is happening at the end of X3: The humans are making a cure for the mutant super powers from the biology of a young mutant boy. Many mutants regard this as certain genocide. The evil mutants are going stop this by killing the young mutant and everyone protecting him. The xmen have to stand against them. The evil mutants have also brought the most powerful and unstable mutant alive to the battle. Now imagine trying to explain the plot and stakes of X2's climax to someone who just came into the room. Here we go: A military scientist wants exterminate the race of super powered mutants. It just so happens that the leader of the xmen could (but wouldn't of his own free wiil) kill every mutant at once with his telepathic ability, if his power is augmented by his custom built telepathy amplifying machine. So the scientist captures Professor X and builds a copy of the telepathy amplifier. The scientist can control almost any mutant with a compound extracted from the nervous system of his own mutant son, whom he has lobotomized and who has a different kind of telepathic power. The compound won't work on professor X because his mind is too powerful, but the scientist's son can overpower him directly by proximity. So the scientist is going to put professor X and his son in the telepathy amplifier and use the mind control compound on his son to force him to force professor X to locate and kill every mutant in the world through the telepathy amplifier. The peaceful and evil mutants have to team up against the military laboratory to stop it. Then while the good mutants are distracted in battle, the evil mutants get to the telepathy amplifier alone. Instead of disarming the whole situation, the evil mutants use the shape shifter on their team to pretend to be the scientist to trick his son into forcing professor X to locate and destroy all of the humans instead. To me, this amount of complexity is harmful to a story. It may be valid to say that having to pay attention to the movie isn't really a flaw. On the other hand, Its my opinion that suspension of disbelief and immersion hold better when the plot doesn't depend too much on knowing the fictional rules of a story. Examples of Scifi that does this well include Batman 1989: The Joker is planning to attack the city with weaponized chemical gas Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1989: The Shredder is recruiting and exploiting already troubled teens to build a personal army of violent robbers and using them against the citizens of New York. Star Wars 1977: The galactic empire is chasing some rebels who have the schematics to their planet destroying space station, while also trying to find and destroy the last rebel stronghold. Again its an opinion, but I think many would agree keeping track of fewer details makes a smoother story.

  • X2: X-Men United must’ve been named by the same people who named Zenon: Z3.

  • 10:45 Probably a little late to the party but... Yeah iron in the blood actually does pretty much work like this, you can manipulate the iron in your body with a magnet. The bullshit part is that the metal detector didn't pick it up... and the fact that no matter the stage of illness he would be VERY sick (like vomiting blood and liver failure) if not dead.

  • Mistique of X1-2 is the best Mistique ever. I'd rewatch the X2 again just to focus on her

    • I mean she was the same in X3, although she had too little screen time.
