Ratner blasts critics

Oct. 13, 2009by: Niki Stephens

Usually we don't typically run articles like this one, but this is just too good. Warning, this article will contain extreme uses of sarcasm.

Brett Ratner, who apparently is the greatest director of all time and thinks that nothing gets done without his cinematic genius, has decided to spew his ridiculous verbal vomit.

Fans of the X-MEN franchise were weary when first hearing about Ratner directing the third film for the installment. Well if you saw LAST STAND, then it's possible your in the huge crowd of people who thought it was garbage. This is how Ratner feels about the response, "You can't make these people happy. I'm kind of the anti-Christ to these comic book geeks. Every single person that wrote shit went to see that movie multiple times because a movie doesn't gross $200 something million unless people go to see it more than once."

Of course, he continued, "Every single person who said, 'I'm never seeing that movie', they were the first ones there. What are they concerned about? It's out of the filmmaker's hands. A film is a collaborative effort. How's a person sitting at home going to worry about how a movie is going to turn out to be?" I did go see it, once. I love X-MEN regardless of who directs it, but after seeing it, I didn't need to see it again.

It gets worse. Ratner claims that he made the franchise more popular than ever, "The most ridiculous statement I've read is - and of course I looked at the internet after the movie came out - that I buried the franchise. "If I buried the franchise how the fuck did they make a Wolverine? I mean, that's ridiculous. And they're making three other fucking X-Men movies. Mine kept the franchise alive!"

Whether you already hated Ratner or not, you have to admit the guy is a little full of himself. He's right, a film is a collaborative effort, so take the heat where you 'effed up. Also, I do worry about how a film is going to turn out. I sound like I give a shit more than he does, and it's his job to give to shit about how a film turns out. So forgive me if I decide to not bow down to the guy who adds a Mariah Carey video to his directing credits.

Extra Tidbit: Well, I'm a geek and I say Brett Ratner doesn't know shit about X-Men. Where's my C'Mon Hollywood article when I need it?!

He buried it for me

Ratner just doesn't make movies I like to watch more than once and I doubt I'll head to the theater for his next film. X Men is dead to me as long as Singer isn't involved. WE NEED A STORY THAT'S WORTH TELLING.

The few good things about X3 probably came from pre-prod Singer did before he left. The acting and character interaction were much worse, as if the cast had bad direction.

That said, I hope they never let The Rat near another comic franchise unless it's one that warrants his hacky touch..like Youngblood.

while i do agree about the statement about the comic book geeks, ya you all do bitch and moan about any lil thing, the rest of what he said makes him sound like an absolute jackass on an ego trip. But ya what most people here are saying is Fox is to blame for X3 sucking not Ratner & i doubt any other director could of done better. Waiting another year for Singer would of been the better choice cause regardless the movie was already gonna make the money.

The Last Stand was easily the worst of the three, but I don't think it was as awful as a lot of fanboys say. That being said, Ratner does sound like an ass here

He saved the franchise? well if that's the case why aren't they making a sequel for Last Stand but are instead doing prequels or completely rebooting the franchise? Oh right cause Last Stand sucked balls, that's why.

I have a close friend who knows Ratner personally, and from what I've heard, all the talk about him being an asshole is absolutely true. I've even been told that he won't help out the people closest to him unless it means him getting ahead. His movies are garbage and I don't understand how he gets work.

Movie made a shitload of money because of two reasons:

A) Came off the heels of X2 which was probably one of the best comic book films. Just like the Batman film (that doesn't gross nearly anywhere near Dark Knight) that comes next will.

2) It opened on fucking memorial day weekend.

Dudes a bitch.

WHOA, is Ratner ever in denial. The only reason why X3 made any money was because of the huge push from X2. Everyone in that line-up was rightfully scared of X3 from the get-go because of what Rathner has produced in the past. In it's essence it was like going to go see Batman Returns then watching Batman Forever(which was a good movie but i only give it as an example because sometimes that change doesn't work). You are not a comic god, you certainly did not revitalize the franchise. Get over

Aww...that poor, poor sap. He's angry and hurt that nobody gives a shit about him and most of the sane world hates his face. *Tisk tisk tisk*. All the man needs is some love, people.

Well too bad, Ratner...you're not getting any. You sad f*ck. If X-Men 3 was so damn awesome, why hasn't Ratner done anything (meaningful) since then?

F*cknut!

Ratner's a douche and he knows it, the only other director to blatantly blast people in past months was Uwe Boll. My brother in law auditioned for the roll of Angel and said Ratner was a cool guy but it's a little hard to see him that way.

So what's the C'mon Hollywood? Is it Brett Ratner doesn't know shit about X-men? I wonder if I could write five clever paragraphs about that...

And Wolverine has absolutely NOTHING to do with Ratner's X-men exploits. It's just sad to think he

Well, I started hating X3 in theatre when Angel was kinda misused and just came out of nowhere at the end. Especially the killings of many mutant characters at the climatic ending. Why kill them all? Doesn't make any sense.

People did turn out in droves to see the movie, but let's face it, it was X-Men 3 and the trailer made it look hopeful. I certainly do not know a single comic/movie geek that went to see this shitty movie more than once, I honestly think the man is talking out of his ass when he says this and he gives absolutely zero evidence. This movie didn't make money because you're an awesome filmmaker, it made money because you put X-Men on a screen and any director could have pulled that off (well,

Honestly, if he made X-Men 4 it wouldn't do nearly as well.

Wolverine did fine because he wasn't attached (plus Gambit and Deadpool were in it).

And why did he bring up the fact that a movie is a collaborative effort? Is he trying to spread the blame? Way to respect the crew. Sorry Bret, your movies make money...but I don't see an Oscar in your future any time soon.

I don't think I ever watched an entire Brett Ratner movie, and that's not on purpose, really. Seen part of X3 on HBO though, I'm not sure what I saw of it was so BAD, but then I was only half paying attention. Otherwise Ratner sounds like Michael Bay minus the signature style. His point about geekdom is important, in a way, because I'm someone who won't go see a movie if I have a bad feeling about it (or it's Indiana Jones), but a lot of people bitch and moan about getting robbed when they

Ratners a joke

The only reason he got X3 was because fox was completely scrapping the bottom of the barrel, which is probably where this ass clown got his false sense of entitlement. Where the hell does this guy get off claiming that all these "comic geeks" went to see it multiple times? i love the X-men and I only saw that pile of shit once. And just to top it off, not only has Ratner directed a Mariah Carey video, but also a Miley Cyrus video. Which makes everyone in this comments section immediatley

x3's success wasn't because of ratner

X3 did well because the first one was reasonably well received, and the second one was VERY well received by critics and filmgoers. Most casual audiences aren't aware of what was going on behind the scenes, so for all they knew the same people who were making X3 were behind the first two, and they liked the first two. This is why Spiderman 3 made crazy money. Spiderman 2 was awesome, so people naturally assumed the next would be great. Turns out it wasn't. That's why Chris Nolan could shit

This is why Spiderman 3 made crazy money. Spiderman 2 was awesome, so people naturally assumed the next would be great. Turns out it wasn't. That's why Chris Nolan could shit on film for the next Batman film and it will make a fortune. X3 had a HUGE opening weekend because of the success of the last two. It dropped 66% after the first weekend, which is also huge. That drop off occurred because word of mouth was terrible and because, despite his claims, people did not see it over and over again.

The fact that they continue to make XMen movies is not because he saved or kept the series alive. It's because the studio wants to milk it for all it is worth before comic book movies are dead.

Also, these days a 200 million dollar movie doesn't require people to go see it over and over. Do these guys even have any concept of how much money it costs to see a movie these days? When you pay 12 bucks to see a flick, 200 million comes awfully quickly. Color me impressed when Ratner makes a 200m movie where the average ticket price is 4 bucks.

He is completely out of touch.

I don't think what he's saying is true at all. Especially the part about people who hated it the most seeing it more than once, how does that work?

I'm not sure what he means but it seems like he's saying that they would do that because they wanted X-Men 3 to be the highest grossing film. Um......what's in it for them exactly?

what's the problem? everything he said is true. comic geeks pissed and moaned, and then went and saw it to the tune that it is the highest grossing X-Men movie of all time. Like he said, that doesn't happen unless those same people saw it multiple times. not only that, but the fact that it performed so well undoubtedly kept the franchise alive, so he is speaking the truth again, because his movie showed that not only did the series still have legs, interest in it had grown since the first

I'm not sure how any reasonably intelligent person can attempt to make the Rat look bad by simply being honest. Perhaps his detractors should spend more time being honest with themselves about The last Stand, as awful as it was, instead of trying to simply contrive reasons to criticize him.

To be fair...

Not to try and paint Ratner in a more positive light (the man is shit, truth), more X3 wasn't entirely his fault. At the point when Ratner came in, 2 directors down and a shit script decided on, no one could have saved it.
It's Fox whose to claim, who realised that they could hire a hack like Ratner and the film will still make moeny, which is all the satan worshippers at Fox care about.
I dare say it too, but Bryan Singer is partly to blame. If he hadn't have left to make that awful superman

Doesn't matter.

X-mens movies sell themselves no matter who directs. Uwe Boll could do the next one and the fanboys will litter the internet with protest then don their anoracks and stand in line to see it.
I personally liked X3, sure the story was dodgy, but there was plenty to keep most happy.

I totally agree with the guy. He does something that none of us (including me) does, and that is, he makes movies. We are bashing a guy that provides entertainment. What are we looking for in a COMIC BOOK movie, an Oscar Worthy Performance? It's easy to criticize but what are you doing about it? COMPLAINING. That's the best that you can do, criticizing someone else for doing their job. How about if Brett Ratner came and criticized your work? A movie should be entertaining and enjoyable, today

I also guarantee that whoever bashes any movie they are usually at the theater for the sequel and in line to buy the dvd, Everytime. GO Brett Ratner, Michael Bay, keep doing what you do. Don't let the few, speak for the MANY.

Let's see...he used the script that Singer liked about two months before Singer walked to do Superstalker Returns (remember how bad that script was, kids?). At least X3 had more action scenes in it than X1 and X2 combined. Was it a great movie? No. But neither were X1 and X2. Both of those were actually kind of mediocre as well. Frankly, what's done is done, and fanboys just need to deal with it. I swear, fanboys are like whiny little bitches that complain about a place that once put their ice

Move on, already. Grow the fuck up. There will be other X-Men movies for the movie studios to milk, and there will more than likely be other X-Men movies made that will make you appreciate X3.

Ratner was a C- film student, who begged his way into film school when he was not admitted. He makes C- minus movies and is a C- human being.

Goddamn I hate this guy. "Ooooh, I saved the franchise!" Hitler could've directed it and it still would've made the same box-office. It had a built in audience and they marketed the hell out of it. He's the example of how a guy can step in shit and it turns to gold-it doesn't benefit anyone but him.

I don't blame Ratner for what X-3 ultimately was. The schedule for that movie was waaay to tight for him to have even put half of what he might have wanted to put on the screen(for better or worse).

I DO blame the writers though.
Ultimately, it was them who thought it would be cool to kill off Cyclops and Professor X and demutate Mystique and render Rogue useless for the entire movie(which ruins the entire emotional story arc of Part 1) only for them to completely flipflop come the movies

Ratner should do like Schumacher and accept the blame

He's not the only one to blame for this failure: Fox had a ridiculous deadline and that awful script was ready before Ratner even got into the project.

Still, Singer had one of the most epic comic story ark ever, the Phoenix saga, set up perfectly and Ratner dropped the ball. How many directors would have killed to work on that story?

The Last Stand...

was incredibly disappointing. Lots of cool visuals and action, but it's clear Bret Ratner was out of touch with the heart of what the franchise was all about. And he's still trying to pretend like he's the last word on everything X-Men. Bite Me!

I read this article or something like it a few months ago, there's a thread about it in the forum section. I dont give a shit if his movie was the highest grossing out of the franchise, his movie was complete shit and that's why it killed the franchise. The first two are excellent. I didnt see it multiple times in fact I told people that didnt see it opening night to not see it all or at least wait for DVD. They saw it any ways and they all said the same thing I did, it was dog shit and that

It doesnt matter how much a movie makes it matters on if its good or not.

I am not the biggest Ratner fan but I will say he just worked with the material he was given.

The only reason there was a 3rd was because the 2nd was so Epic!!! It was left wide open for a sequel. I remember thinking there is no way they could fuck this up. But Ratner pulled it off and Fucked it up.

This will always be....

Bryan Singer's franchise, regardless if he never directs another "X-Men" movie. Ratner's movie was a pile of shit compared to the first two "X-Men" movies. Way to take this franchise backwards and not forwards you fat fuck. And thanks a lot for taking a shit on my favorite comic book heroes. Fat fuck.

of course your gonna make money

that doesnt mean the movie is actually good, see i fuckin hate it when directors think the movie is a success when it gets a great opening day, IT'S CALLED HYPE! PUBLICITY! and yeah the other two were good so of course we are give it a go the first day. IT DOESN'T MAKE YOUR MOVIE A GOOD ONE, i understand it's a business but i would really like it if directors like ratner would take their own head out of their asses and admit when they made a fuckin bad movie overall

I actually liked X-Men 3. Not the best of the series, but there are far worse movies out there. I do not mind Ratner's movies either. The Rush Hour series is fun, Money Talks was good.

He is like any other film maker, some will like him, some won't.
