Jackie (thelastwolf) | 4050 comments We have plans to see Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, tomorrow.

In the first Underworld, there is a backstory we get a glimpse of, this installment is that backstory.
Plot Summary: The prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian (Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom.

You can view trailers for it here:

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments Wow, exciting trailer! Have you read the book, Jackie? I think I remember you saying that you had.

I can't get over how clear the trailer images are on my laptop.

Jackie (thelastwolf) | 4050 comments No, I'm not sure if they are based on books. Usually in the credits it'll say 'based on the novel by ____', but I don't recall seeing that. I try to keep an eye out for that sort of thing.

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments Looks like it's a screenplay only... no book.

Jackie (thelastwolf) | 4050 comments I just came back from seeing X-Men Origins: Wolverine and it was spectacular. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. The stunts and effects were phenomenal.
A MUST SEE for Marvel fans, or for action fans.

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments Thanks for telling us about this, Jackie. I remember talking about the X-Men movies in other threads here. I've never seen one. I ordered the movie Kyle XY a while ago. Is that about X-Men?

If I wanted to see an X-Men movie, which would be the best to start with (from Netflix): "X-Men"(2000) or "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (2008)?

Any advice?

Jackie (thelastwolf) | 4050 comments No, Kyle XY is a TV series from ABC Family. I enjoyed it. I won't tell you anything about it because Kyle is a mystery and that's the fun of watching it, slowly unravelling what Kyle really is.

I would say to start with the first X Men (2000). In this we meet Logan (Wolverine) and his life is a mystery. He meets Professor X who tries to help him recovery his lost memories. The next two movies, X Men United and X Men The Last Stand, continue where the previous ones left off.
In Origins, we find out how he lost his memories and what his life was like before that happened. Even though this Wolverine story comes first chronologically, it is better to let it unfold as we, the readers and movie watchers, first it saw. Wolverine is a major character in the Marvel Universe and part of his allure was the mystique surrounding him, as well as air of tradegy. The Wolverine Origin story was the most anticipated storylines in Marvel history. But without it being held back for so long, it might never have been the great story that it is. If we were given it chronologically, or close to it, there'd be no mystery. I like the way it came out, and how the story was told, even with having to wait.

I would recommend watching them in order:
X Men
X Men United
X Men The Last Stand and
X Men Origins: Wolverine

Thanks, Jackie. That clears things up for me. The IMDb listings were confusing, as you can see at the link below: ====>
http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=...
The movies seem to have different titles depending on where they played. Also, there are so many of them that it's hard to know what is what.

I've put X-Men(2000) on my Neflix queue.
That will start me off.

PS-Thanks for the explanations.
