Very Small Reaction to X-Men First Class
No, I hadn't seen X-Men: first Class until now, but it's been a hell of a weekend, my aching head couldn't take much, and so it was time to watch something I wouldn't be capping.



-Now that's how to do a prequel!

-Mystique was raised as Charles' sister?? Wow, now I want to go back and rewatch the first X-Men with that in mind.

-Absolutely loved Erik's character arc. Felt very genuine and true to the future character.

-BTW, holy crap, I see what you all meant about the slash just leaping off the screen! In, like, three or four directions! O.o

-So many times going 'eee!' from little comic references I don't even know how I recognized. I'm blaming lurkingwombat osmosis since I'm not actually sure if I've read an X-Men comic myself.

-That is about the most badass (in an evil way) character I've ever seen Kevin Bacon play. I was tremendously surprised, but I will admit, I haven't seen a lot of his stuff. Kind of neat to have his former co-star off Flatliners in there for a bit too. Oliver Platt who played the CIA guy with the secret base also played Steckle, the skeptic character in Flatliners.

-Wolverine cameo was perfect. And I may have made eep noises when Stryker was introduced.

-I would watch more of this ensemble and setting. So much more. I've skipped watching the last few X-Men franchise-related movies (the Wolverine backstory one and... I think there's another one after X-Men 3?) due to indifferent reviews, but now feel like I should track them down.

Oh I know right? I am so buying this when I get paid. Bloody hell it was brilliant. Michael Fassbender is fantastic, and I am looking forward to his portrayal of Jung in "A Dangerous Method" too.

I'll probably buy it later on when the price goes down around Christmas. I used to get previously viewed from the video store, but the rental copies don't seem to come with the extras anymore. :-P

That movie is amazing. I just bought it today. Wolverine wasn't very good at all and I wasn't that impressed with X-Men 3, so I didn't exactly have high expectations for this one but it was just...very well put together in all aspects.

X-Men 3... yeah. It was a bit disappointing. I think I might track down Wolverine and give it a watch. At worst, it can always be mocked, right?

Yes, I suppose that's true. I tend to just completely forget the content of movies if I didn't like them so I really can't remember if there's mockable material in there.

Yeah, this one was awesome. One of my favorite movies of this summer... Hmm. Actually, my favorite. I saw it twice in theaters -- the only movie I repeated a ticket price on. Totally worth it. I'll be buying my own DVD copy -- probably when I get my SPN DVDs, if Target has a good price on XMen.

I'll probably wait 'til it goes on sale, but I'll be getting it at some point.

SPN DVDs are coming out this week, yes? I'll have to wound my credit card for that.
