mangelamustdie: Here is a good question.
Is X-men 3: the Last Stand even worth the discussion??Discuss.

I think the theme is there, but just touched upon. Bryan Singer brought it right to the forefront in the first two, and Brett Ratner simply acknowledged it, made a few remarks about it, and then moved on to moving bridges and blowing up cars. The "cure" in X-Men 3 doesn't represent abortion, but still the gay and racial themes of the comics and previous movies, that anyone who isn't "normal" (which was white and straight in the olden days) can be cured. There's a reason why it's Storm who says "There's no reason for any of us to be cured."
A fine movie, and probably the best it could have been under Ratner's direction.

What is so great about Bryan Singer's first installment of the series, and inversely, what is so bad about Brett Ratner's first(and last)? It seems like people are hating a guy's name.
