I managed to pick this up at the used CD/DVD store today. Basically it's the same film as the original. Using the current marketing stunts, released with extra tid bits and a teaser for X2 (can't wait for that). Only thing, is that I am thankful I did not buy the original version. Hat's off to all you pitiful LOTR fans that went and did that. X-Men Really surprised me as a film. I had seen the trailers and thought it to be a gimmicky flop, but it turned out to be a superhero movie, with some soul and feeling. This movie makes me want to actually go and read the comics. Anybody else get your hands on this recently?

BTW- This movie marks my 100th DVD in my collection. :cool:

Congrats on 100! :D

I got the DVD when it was first released. I love xmen as you know and I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to X2. This 1.5 sounds interesting, I might hire it out if they put it to rent.

I have X-Men for VHS, but I'm tired of the VCR, so I bought X1.5 on DVD

I got X-men on vhs.....but I have no strong desire to get the 1.5. Once I see X2 then I might want to do it. I have a feeling though that there will be another one after x2. I'll just wait to buy them all. :)

I went out and bought X1.5...I also had not gotten the first dvd of it, so I was happy to get this & get into Daredevil for free :D

I too enjoy the movie and am waiting with baited breath to see X2 (the new trailer is sweet...Colossus, NIGHTCRAWLER...ohh so cool....)

I got X-Men on vhs as well. I was very captivated by this movie for some reason. It just turned out so much better than I had anticipated. The heroes in this movie have heart and soul. The love interest between Rogue, and Wolverine is admirable, it added alot of reality to a movie that could have been horrible if not done right. This movie was superb in nearly every catagory!
