Can we fall any farther on the director scale?

X-Men 3 has a new director. Replacing Matthew Vaughn, who replaced Bryan Singer is Rush Hour director Brett Ratner. Besides the awful Rush Hour movies, Ratner directed Red Dragon, the gore-filled remake of the first Hannibal Lector movie, and the supposedly watchable After the Sunset. There isn't much to be pleased with here, though. While I wasn't thrilled with Vaughn, at least we didn't know he's a hack.

To make matters worse, one of the AICN crew has read the X3 script and says it sucks.

All i know is that the movies treated every character but Wolverine like they weren't important at all. If they wanna start killin off people who were important in the comics but not in the movies, I'm not surprised. It's the last bullet in what could have been an emotional trilogy. You want comic book heroes done the real way? Try going to ifilm.com and watching "Grayson" or "The Eyeball Papercuts".
