I was already disappointed to hear of "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolutions." Now I read that the official title to the next X-Men movie is "X²" - sigh. Is there something wrong with just putting the number 2 or 3 after the original title?

Yeah, I see that about the numbers mattering especially when there's a progression of plot. I also like the kind of title where there's no series title, each film has its own name, like the James Bond films. I'm really okay with a lot of sequel titles. I just think "The Matrix Reloaded" (that doesn't make any fucking sense) and "X²" are particularly lame.

Just wondering: I have the DVDs "X" and "X-Men" next to each other on the rack. Where do I put "X²" if I buy it someday? (For reference, "X" is often called "X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes," its poster title, but the screen title is just the one letter.)

I'd put X² following X-Men because it is the sequel to it. Problem solved. Go see "We Were Soldiers."
