The Rock is sort of a jail-break movie.

Alright, I'm halfway through season 3 of The Wire, for the second time, and am again in love with Bubbles. I also liked season 2 much more than I originally did. This is just a great show.

Had to update my avatar as well. I know the quote is from D but it's a great one, and well worth being paired with Bubs.

casting was pretty good. i like who they got to play kirk, spock, etc.
constant lens flare got annoying after awhile, though.

I'm surmising you are talking of the instances where Young Cyclops had blasted through the school in that film and Adult Cyclops had knocked Sabretooth away in the first X-Men film?

That could be vaguely attributed that the young Cyclops did not have a deep control over his power, as most young mutants do not have. In the comic books, it has been shown that Cyclops can change the intensity of his optic blasts into tame percussive punches or metal-shattering shots. Once he has his visor off it's practically very powerful and uncontrolled.

The concussive force of Cyclops' beams is determined the width of the beam. The thinner the beam the more cutting force it has. A wide beam is concussive but not cutting. He controls it by changing the lens in his visor. When his eyes are open, the beam is always the same strength.

The movies weren't particularly consistent with how powerful the mutants were. Like when Magneto couldn't beat those soldiers on Alcatraz despite all the metal around him (including the bridge) but in the second movie he wipes out the whole prison complex with the tiny amount of iron he rips out of that guys blood.

Which is the same principal in the effects of laser, or any medium of force. The wider the area, the more it takes for it to have the same effect as a concentrated beam would have on a centralized target. Like jetstreams of water that cut metal, it is an extremely tight radial output.

As for the Alcatraz raid in the third movie, I just attribute that to horrible writing. The director and the screenplay writers were all changed in the creation of X-Men 3. Most of the original production crew were transplanted into the Superman Returns project.

During the HALO jump where Red Shirt, Kirk, and Sulu had to land on the drillhead in Star Trek, a young man (guessing 24 years old) had enthusiastically said to himself "That would be awesome" once the movie's score and sound effects had gone silent and everyone heard what he said. That was worth a lol.

Wild Wild West was awesome and Striptease wasn't bad. I haven't seen Kazaam though.

i thought that was such a clever nod to the red-shirt thing, whereas some of the spoon-fed dialogue wasn't.
