"The Last Stand" coming to DVD

“X-Men: The Last Stand” comes out on DVD tomorrow. Among the bonus features: three alternate endings.

The fact that I don’t even remember the original ending might say something about the movie’s lack of staying power - or maybe it’s just a sign of my overburdened memory. “The Last Stand,” the third in the X-Men trilogy, wasn’t my favorite X-Men movie — the second installment wins that honor — but it wasn’t, in my opinion, as bad as detractors of director Brett Ratner say. The cast balloons in “The Last Stand” and there are more explosions and fights than character development, but there are plenty of thrills and some nice moments, including the inclusion of Hank McCoy, aka the Beast. I still bristle at the treatment of Cyclops, though.
