X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 30 Seconds. (SLYT)
posted by Astro Zombie (52 comments total) 15 users marked this as a favorite

 
That's 46 seconds. The filmmaker was apparently unable to capture the essence of X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 30 seconds including the opening title sequence. Color me deeply unimpressed by his subpar editing.

I think we would all profit from a little daily primal screaming.

I LOLed. God, that movie was terrible and awful and everyone involved should feel bad. (excepting Ryan Reynolds, who played a good Deadpool right up until the writers managed to bork that character, too).

As w/ Watchmen, my favorite part of Wolverine was the opening credits. This is not a good trend, comicbook movies.

1. we all engage in daily primal screaming
2. ???
3. PROFIT!

Reminds me of the "extreme" youtube video meme. E.g., Making a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich.

It is a testament to how terrible that movie was that, before viewing the clip, I wondered if most of it would not be taken up by Wolverine, or someone playing Wolverine, screaming.

I LOLed, I cried.

Pity I can't say the same about the actual movie.

I dunno, I wept openly once I realized I'd just blown seven bucks on another deeply depressing piece of Hollywood flotsam.

Well, looking at Hugh Jackman for two hours wasn't that bad. Maybe not $9 good, but maybe not primal screaming bad either.

That's 46 seconds.

The actual content of the video goes from about 00:12 to about 00:42. Don't be such a Picky Vicky.

I hadn't considered this interpretation. Perhaps this works not just as a summary of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but of all atrocious movies. Particularly those in which the hero gets claws at the end.

I'm sorry, I thought we'd decided not to do the HAMBURGER thing.

His 500 Celebrity Impersonations in Two Minutes was pretty funny.

The next one is even worse, from what I've heard.
posted by effbot at 2:26 PM on October 18, 2009


I didn't think it was terrible. I will say that the into sequence with the high-def moments from history was pretty badass, but I could have done without the high-def Zapruder clip.
posted by lazaruslong at 2:29 PM on October 18, 2009


Also, the videogame he was playing with friend and screaming was Kingdom Hearts, and that's awesome.

I agree with this man's assessment of the movie. Each of those X-Men movies have gotten successively worse. To begin the journey of asking yourself "Was X-Men Origins: Wolverine good?" will lead to the inevitable concluding thought process that provides a rupture in the build up of the existential angst. Which in turn causes a schism somewhere in your Medulla oblongata, ending in a perpetual scream as part of your autonomic functioning. That is your reward for even trying to think critically about that movie.

So I watched the leaked workprint version of this movie first, which had scenes with unfinished CGI, untextured ragdolls, visible wires, invisible explosions, and so on. It was an interesting glimpse into the process that goes into the post-production effects, and amusing at points. Then I got dragged to see the finished product in the theatre. I will say this: If your movie is more entertaining before it's even finished, it is fucking terrible. Everyone involved in its production should be very sad.

Really the tip-off should have been the fact they gave a starring role to someone for name recognition that had no acting experience besides a commercial and one line in a British sit-com. $150 million bucks and you put Will.i.am in your movie?

That's a weird-looking ASCII vagina.

Trufax: when we went several weeks back to determine the gender of my unborn child, the doctor who did the ultrasound told us it's definitely a girl because, he said, pointing to her vagina, you can clearly make out the "characteristic hamburger."

Toilet paper bit was especially good.

Let me be clear, I appreciated it because of two reasons; as someone who has suffered through the process of having my skeleton infused with adamantium, I can assure you, it's a painful procedure that leads to a lot of unintentional short temperedness.

Also, as clearly seen in the video; fuck gardening. That shit just makes any rational being want to express themselves as vocally and angrily as possible.

I wasn't screaming at the end of XO:W as I was mostly numb. Like X-Men 3, it was an extended exercise in seeing which of the scores of X-Men characters would get cameos.

I can't take Hugh Jackman as Wolverine seriously, and it's not the screaming. It's that I keep expecting him to burst into song.
posted by brand-gnu at 7:48 AM on October 19, 2009


Sweet croaking Jesus, we just watched Wolverine, for some reason. I've still got the stink on me. I'd like to corner the screenwriter who thought, "I know! Let's put Liev Schreiber in fangs and have him lope around."

Yeah, I agree.

This reminds me of the review of X3 me and a pal did a few years back. (Self-link!)
