It really is a shame, the Dark Phoenix saga had so much more potential...
True, but how much of that would translate well to the screen? Anything certainly beats the "Jean standing there angrily through half of the movie" thing, to a certain extent at least.

I really love X2 and think X-Men is pretty fun, although the action sequences leave a bit to be desired... I kinda wish I hadn't paid to see X3 in theaters.

Yeah, it would've been hard to get the Dark Phoenix Saga on film and do it well without seeming too hokey. But they certainly could've fulfilled so much more of the potential. I mean, seeing the Phoenix "flying" through the lake at the end of X2 was so promising...!

Crappy trailer (thanks guys, repeat a few scenes from X2, why don't you), but I can't wait to see this movie. Hopefully it won't be as mediocre as X3. The only scene in X3 I really enjoyed was the one where the woman locked her car door upon seeing Magneto. That movie could have been SO good if Bryan Singer hadn't buggered off to do Superman.

EDIT: Never mind about the first sentence - I just saw now that it's a fanmade trailer.

I'm pissed because I've never seen the Usual Suspects and some asshole spoiled the ending for me about 3 years ago. Is it worth watching anyway?

No. It was hardly worth watching with the "surprise".

I would say yes, the ending is just the cherry on the top so to speak but the rest of the film is decent on it's own.

I started watching at a friend's place about 15 minutes before the reveal and was like, "Duh, I could've told you that's who it was." Apparently, it's a big mystery prior to those 15 minutes. I've never seen it since...
