Star Trek: Nemesis & X Men 2 - abates
Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

Both films featured Patrick Stewart, and both films featured an almost-sex scene where the person on top turned (can't remember if ST:N employed morphing) into someone else.

Star Trek: Nemesis observations:

1. The mini-Picard looked too much like a cross between Dr Evil and the Smallville version of Lex Luthor for comfort.

2. Afterward I felt a lot better about my driving abilities, oddly.

3. It's not explained why Picard went bald so young. (of course, in the flashbacks in the series he wasn't bald as a cadet, etc, etc)

4. The SFX were exceptional, and the movie as a whole was the best Trek movie since First Contact.

X Men 2

The only gripe I had with this is the bit where Wolverine gets shot. The guy has an Adamantium skull - the bullet should have either rebounded or flattened out.

Other than that, a great movie. Especially liked the little touches - the cameo of Dr Henry McCoy on TV, Colossus, etc...

Looking forward to X Men 3 already!

and both were clearly influenced by Star Trek II! (Though X2 did a lot better job of it.)
