Before I forget, another line from X-Men III that had me cringing:
Logan, ending his version of a pep talk to Bobby Drake, who had correctly pointed out that there were only six of them to Magneto’s Army, “We’re X-Men.”
Whoa. Is that supposed to make me, like, fearless, bub?
I wanted to laugh out loud but my companions and everyone else behind me probably would have stoned me as it was apparently the dramatic high-point of the “action” movie (similar to Filipino movies where the lead explains the whole plot while hiding behind a crate and shooting an unextinguishable clip of bullets), so I kept my peace. But, man, that was such a cheesy line.
Maybe if Logan had been told that X-Men in the Philippines has been taken to refer to persons of chosen gender, he might have hesitated before saying that line.
Still and all, X-Men III is worth watching. Don’t mind me, I just have a terminal aversion to cheesy movie lines.
