Even I have been guilty of doing that.....my fav X-Men movie is X-Men 3...which many people hate soo much. So when First Class didn't do as well at the box office I trolled X-Men 3 haterzz....I did fall to the dark side then...but I DID get some sort of ego boost, some sort of feeling that these guys moaned about my beloved X-Men movie, now I can smack them back!
I did all that despite absolutely LOVING X-Men First Class..best movie in years IMO. But I am possessive about X-men 3
However childish it was I can't deny bittersweet revenge feels lovely. That was the dark side pitiful Jedi!
The temptation is always there, it is up to us to resist the power of the dark side!!!!!!!
I can see why X-men 3 would get a better box office than First class. X-men movies had been gaining more and more critical acclaim and support, along with the spider-man movies and Batman begins coming out the year before increased the popularity of comic book movies a lot of people had high hopes for the 3rd installment. Unfortunatly many people (myself included) thought it fell short of its predecessors (and it did).
Then came along the terrible Wolverine movie and suddenly the x-men name ain't looking too shiny. Couple that with high cinema prices and a recovering economy and its perfectly exaptable for First Class not to have made as much as X-men 3 on its opening weekend, despite First Class being clearly the superior movie
People hate things for the sole purpose of their popularity all the time, mostly in music, casn't be cool unless you listen to bands that have never played in a venue bigger than a small living room, everybody else is a self out and as such can't possibly be good. FFVIII is just indy while VII is mainstream is all.
