I guess I shouldn't be surprised that swill like the wretched X-Men 3 goes down a lot better for the masses than a movie as great as V for Vendetta .. I have to admit, though, I really liked that Over the Hedge quite a bit too

I didn't know Over the Hedge was based on a comic. I loved V and Superman, and X-men was flawed but I still liked it.
