Writer loses job over Wolverine

A US columnist is out of a job after posting an online review of an illegally downloaded copy of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Roger Friedman, who wrote the piece on his regular column, had worked at the Fox news website for 10 years.

Fox News said that the company's representatives and Friedman "mutually agreed to part ways immediately".

It said that Friedman's behaviour was "reprehensible" and that it "condemned this act categorically".

...I guess common sense still just isn't that common.

Just like every Marvel Movie that has come out in the last 3 years. The Punisher, The Punisher 2, The Hulk, The Hulk 2, X3, FF, FF2, Elektra, Daredevil, Ghostrider, Spiderman 3 etc. Even Iron Man was kind of a disappointment.

Id rather sew my eyeballs shut than have to sit through this retarded piece of sh#t again. Which is kind of depressing. As a child I used to think Marvel Comics were 'the bees knees'. Now that I have matured with age I now realize Marvel has nothing on DC (V for Vendetta, Watchmen, The Dark Knight, Superman Returns, etc.)

But really, all Wolverine is is a string of comic book cliches strung together in a hollow attempt to extort your hard earned dollars.

There is nothing original about this movie. It takes one of the coolest superheroes ever to be committed to paper and turns him into a boring and generic action hero. This movie was so inconsistent and random. They tried to throw everything in except the kitchen sink.

EDIT: Would anyone disagreeing care to comment so I can rip you a new one?

superman Returns suck its a 2-hour chick flick. Every other DC movie I liked. Just wanted to state my own opinion

joydestroy3788d ago

i liked the first Punisher, hadn't seen the second one but i've heard it's better, also liked the newest Hulk with Edward Norton (he's the sh!t), Ghostrider was alright but def watchable...same with Spiderman 3. Superman Returns was a good movie, even if you wanna call it a "chick flick", and Iron Man was the best out of all of them. not sure which version you saw. and i'm looking forward to seeing this movie at some point. prob not in theatres though.

marvel vs dc though...DC wins hands down with just Batman.

This is Fox were talking about. Common sense has never existed in their news division.

"The Hulk 2"? Shows how much you know.

Also, Superman Returns sucked quite a bit of ass.

lol that was a rather silly move he should have known that he shouldnt do that after 10 years lol... luckily i dont work for them so i can say the film is pretty good but not really as brutal as i would have liked still worth a watch tho... the missing cgi in that download is pretty funny lol

What an idiot! How in the hell did he even THINK this was a good idea?

iHEARTboobs3788d ago

I was going to watch it but i'm going to avoid it now that it's not polished enough.

iHEARTboobs3788d ago

wait, i meant i was going to avoid watching the download. I'm still going to watch it in the theatre.
