    Okay so I haven't really been to the movies much at all in the past year, but the summer lineup always makes me make a point of getting there. This question is about this summers first 2 blockbuster films to come out so far. So here it is. Which movie is better? X-Men Origins:Wolverine or Star Trek? Why?





    I've seen both and I can say honestly and easily, even though I am a huge X-Men fan, the new Star Trek movie is hands down better. I am not a very big Star Trek fan and never really have been, but this movie is completely awesome! Both movies are great flicks, but if you're only gonna see 1 in the theaters and you cant decide. I will save you some time....GO SEE STAR TREK!!!

    X-Men ruined my childhood memories.

    Star Trek helped me move on from the, "My....God....Spock....I'm....The....Most.....Incr edible.....Captain.....Ever!"
    "And then you wake up."

    Being a fan of both, ST wins. I have the original Weapon X comics and Barry Windsor-Smith is one of my favorite artists of all time... so Wolverine just peed all over that. Bad Wolverine! *swat*

    lol I don't think it was horrible. I did like the Wolverine movie, but Star Trek was sooooo much better. What a great movie I am itching to see it again

    Both were good movies that will piss off a lot of fans by diverging sharply from the source material. Star Trek had the decency to explain it though- as Uhura says in a bridge scene, "An alternate universe". Which is a pretty common thing in Star Trek, so I feel they satisfied their obligations to the fans without having to make the same sort of movie that killed the franchise.

    Spoilers ahead yo.

    Wolverine had no such decency. The supporting characters were so radically altered that some of them could be argued to not have made an appearance on the big screen yet. Was that supposed to be Emma Frost? She was named Emma, blond, and could transform into diamond, but her sister was Native, she didn't seem to be a telepath, and when the writers were actually justified in having a gorgeous, scantily-clad woman on screen, they cast someone with a hard-angled face, gave her a short haircut and put her in prison fatigues. Did the people who made this movie actually read a comic book at some point ever?

    Sabertooth being Wolverine's brother is another doozy. It's a working formula for comic book movies these days- instead of wasting time on the villain's origin, give him the same origin as the hero- Iron Man fights Iron Monger. Hulk fights Abomination. Wolverine fights Sabertooth. But it's getting old. Hopefully, if the Avengers movie gets made, the team won't just be squaring off against mirror images of themselves...

    It is actually never proven that they aren't brothers in the comic book. And the new writers have eluded to the notion as being true. The original idea was that Sabertooth was Wolverines father in the comic books, one comic in which Sabertooth actually states that Wolverine will become what Sabertooth is and he knows that because he is Wolverines father. There was testing in a later comic that revealed that they werent father and son, but that they did share a genetic similarity(related). It has never been delved into, but there are writers tied to the project that say there is something to the brother notion...

    I have to agree that Trek was the best of the two. While I'm not that familar with the Wolverine origin, I know that it was changed, but they changed Trek as well.

    Course, when I go to a movie that is made from a book or some other source, I don't expect the people doing the movie to follow the source to the letter. But even though I like the Trek movie better, I'm more disturbed by the changes to it than I am by Wolverine.

    One thing that would have won more points for me with Trek would have been a better engineering section of the ship. It bothered me the most that you have this 23rd century looking bridge, but then you go down to the engine room and it looks to me like a 19th to 20th century ocean going ship!

    I am going to say Trek. Not because it was awesome but because the wolverine movie was increasingly flawed
    1) Sabertooth apparently gets stupid as the series progresses
    2) Again Wolvie is too tall
    3) Victor CREED
    4) Deadpool can teleport says what?
    5) How did they know the bullet was going to erase his memories and not just scramble his brain into yoke?

    It did scramble his brain into yolk. Then it grew back, but the memories don't grow back.

    It's a good thing he was shot in the "specific memories" section though, and not the "basic motor skills" section or the "can speak English" section... It would have sucked for him if he forgot how to talk or stand up...

    but as a mutant with the special power of regeneration would it have truly mattered in which part of his brain he was shot? Regardless of where the bullet went, his brain would have regenerated anything that was damaged. His memory was the only thing that could have been dramatically affected.
