AOA showed how badass apocaypse was. Now he is some tired joke. Its hard to take him serously anymore.
How bout during Executioners song? what they did with him there was amazing. I wish they had killed him off there. What a way to go, being finished off by your own students following your own principles.
"survival of the fittest"
I looked at him, and for a second.... I forgot to kill him.
X-cutioner's song was great. I always thought that some of the best Apocalypse stories were during that whole Stryfe/Cable/Apocalypse period (even though Liefield was directly involved).
And here's the thing. They could have done some really great stuff with the re-emergence of Apocalypse. But it's all felt more or less like the Apocalypse greatest hits. Just retreads of past Apocalypse-related storylines. And that's been terribly disappointing.
X-cutioner's Song is an amazing story. I read it back when my knowledge of X-men was the cartoon show. My brother's friend's dad worked out a printing plant and they got to keep books that printed with errors for free. He gave me the comic there is one panel where the art didn't print, but the dialogue did. It is weird, but it is just a close up of angel so I never missed much. That comic is so good though. It was the ultimate ending for Apocalypse to be left to slowly die, not even given an honorable death at his enemys hand. Bringing back a character like that requires a story worth bringing them back for, unfrotunately that is rarely the case when they return. I just can't follow X-men now even if I wanted too.
I LOVE this movie. Totally felt like the Turtles from my childhood. Wish they'd make a sequel. Thought the animation stood up fairly well too. Certainly not Pixar quality, but still worthy of the theater.
It was one I was kind of nervous about getting on DVD. as much as I really REALLY liked it in theaters, Iw as worried that because it's a kid's movie, it might not be as engaging the second time around.
I'd completely forgotten how well it's done. So glad I picked it up in one of those 4 for 20 deals at blockbuster.
That fight is insane. I can't believe it's actually raining during that whole showdown. I think my favorite visual though is when Raph jumps off the building during the first big Monster battle and we're falling down with him and seeing the monster in the background crashing through the floors. I think that's the point where I was like, "shit, they're not messing around."
