The girl and I went to see the new X-Men movie today. I really wanted the boy to go but he chose sleep which was a good thing since the movie let out twenty minutes after he started work. The critics have been pretty harsh on this one but I’m not a film critic….I liked it.
It had all the right elements for me, there was action, there was drama, and there was comic relief. Quicksilver made me laugh out loud more than once. NIghtcrawler had his moments too, he was pretty adorable in a blue kind of way. Wolverine had a cameo and while I will always want more Wolverine, I understand why he didn’t play a bigger part. It was a nice teaser for the next Wolverine movie. Ever since the cartoon with the blue and yellow uniforms, Wolverine has been my favorite. Then one day Hugh Jackman brought him to life and whoa!
This movie featured a young Jean Gray and she wasn’t horrible. I loathe the actress that played her in the other movies. Seriously…..I mock her through the whole movie. The worst was the Wolverine movie with the Asian girl that stole the show….I can’t think of the name of that one. I went to see that with a friend who unlike the girl is not used to my mocking. She said to me “you really don’t like that character?” “Nope I can’t stand her!”
