X-MEN First Class Poster meme
« on: March 09, 2011, 12:35:22 pm »
Has anybody seen the godawful X-MEN First Class posters? Here they are:

http://geeksofdoom.com/2011/03/09/new-x ... fans-weep/

What makes them so awful? Well for one thing the simplicity. But its not a good sort of simplicity. Default white background, silhouette and a badly placed image of the actor within the silhouette. Look at Prof X, that bit of white is dangerously close to his eye. Why center at the crotch? Why be so freakin' literal? Anyway, so I was inspired to make my own meme. Basically, anything goes as long as the thing inside the thing later becomes the silhouette:






I am in need of more ideas.

Good idea, but really poor execution. This meme sounds funny though. I'm too late for work and hopeless at photochopps to do anything now though!

Ha! Yeah, i was half joking at making it a real meme. Its hard to make a well executed version of something that itself is so poorly executed. lol

I could see the chicken and egg one being the cover of some philosophy text book.

I don't know what started as a return to the basics has gone in a weird direction.

Where is the original gang of Angel, Cyclops, Ice Man, Marvel Girl and Beast (I know Beast is there, but what about the rest). I was hoping for a reboot, to fix the mess that was X2 & Last Stand.

I love X-Men, but I really have no interest in this movie.
Good job with the posters though Barry.

I'm interested in this movie.  XMEN 3 was a real let-down.

At the time I just thought X3 was a let down, now I consider X2 to be just as bad.

Where the fuck was Saber Tooth?
Did they just kill Uriko without even showing her back story?
Where the fuck was Cyclops? (he was supposed to be in Prof.X's delusion but he was replaced in favor of a random girl?) He had very little screen time.
How come Storm no longer has an African accent?
How is Wolverine taller than he was in the last film?

What I don't get is if this is a prequel to ALL the X-Men movies, why is Emma Frost an adult in this, yet Origins: Wolverine shows her as a teen as well as a fully grown Charles? It's like the filmmakers almost seem to totally disregard consistancy (even though Wolverine was a rather pointless movie).

I think they just wanted to have a big female character wearing skimpy outfits.

Big like heavy? Because the superhero world needs more plus sized women.

@Chaosmaster8753:

Yeah, they've really messed things up. Supposedly, this IS a prequel to X-Men 1-3, however is ISN'T connected to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I think they're pretending that didn't happen.

The next Wolverine sounds good. Darren Aronofsky is behind it (Wrestler, Black Swan), Jackman is returning, is is NOT a sequel to the aforementioned Wolverine spin-off (thank god) and it takes place in Japan.

More big like B-list instead of D-list like some of the characters in the movie (Darwin, Azazel, Angel Salvadore, etc...).

I wish they would pretend The Last Stand never happened and fix things from there.

Since I'm not a Wolverine fan I'll forgive them for X2.

But seriously why are Cyclops and Marvel Girl absent?

I like to pretend that, too. Though, I wouldn't have minded Deadpool the way they showed him in Origins if afterwards he started acting like the Deadpool everyone knows about to be honest.

That sounds nice so far, but have they said who's writing the script for The Wolverine?

Another plothole that bothers me is weren't Erik and Charles older than they were in this movie when they first met Jean in the X3 flashback?
