It opens on May 2nd here in the states, and I will definitely be one of the first people in line to see it.  I can't wait!!!  What an awesome way to start off the summer!

Next big movie I can't wait for... Terminator 3.

Welp, I have X-Men 1.5 on DVD but still haven't watched it, by all accounts I have heard it is a pretty good.  The trailer for version 2 alos looks pretty sweet.  I kind of wish they had gone more with the comic looks of the characters instead of humanizing everything

I'll see it.  And this is one I think I can drag the wife to, as she saw the first one with me (she didn't want to see Daredevil  :()

Hopefully its a little longer than the first one.  I can't wait to see Nightcrawler.

I have yet to see a preview for it, but I just know it's going to be awesome!  I'm going to see "Anger Management" tonight with the wife and some friends, so hopefully we'll be able to catch a preview of it.

Well, what say you John?  You're the first JDer to see it!  Good stuff?  Or does it suffer from the dreaded sequel syndrome...?

I got home from seeing it a little while ago.  I'll just keep it to a simple WOW!  until others can catch it at the local mega-multi-plex.

I saw it Friday night and I must say this movie is WAAAAAAAY better then the first one.  It is simply AWESOME!!!  I'm not going to give away any details, so you'll just have to go out and see it.  I might have to go back and see it again!

Saw it twice now, 12:01 and then 2:00, which were the earliest times possible to see it.

Just..I'll just say that this can't get to DVD fast enough. So, I'll just spend the $15 I would put towards the DVD towards seeing it 3 more times instead.  ;D

I plan on seeing this on Tuesday.
I liked the first one. I guess this one has more action since now we know most of the characters. I can't wait.

Cool movie.  Better for fans of the books that will know the characters though.  My wife missed a lot.  Fairly Phoenician, if ya know what I mean ;)

Nightcrawler was pretty cool.  I was pleasantly surprised.  

My opinion is that it was indeed more enjoyable than the first.  If only they could get Rogue to stop screaming so much. ::)
