Professor X and Magneto? Is the beginning all that exciting?
Kevin Bacon’s shiver-worthy, the training montage is playful and endearing, and the Cuban Missile Crisis tie-in is believable.
Go. See. This. Movie.
Then see it again!!!!
I started reading X-Men titles while still in my single digits and have three, ginormous boxes of comic books in the closet of my spare bedroom. Uncanny, Excalibur, Generation X. You name it, I probably have at least one (or seventy), but in my mid-teens, not too long after the Age of Apocalypse, I stopped collecting. That said, the movies mean a lot to me. Do I know all the characters? Nope. But I love to see the stills from those treasured pages come to life. And this one is, hands down, my favorite. Well, so far... ;)
If you're still on the fence about this movie, please remember that A) you can scope out Jennifer Lawrence a bit to make your final decision on Katniss casting, B) Hugh Jackson has a well-done cameo, and C) do I need to sing Fassbender's praises again? Seriously.
No. Seriously. He even pulls off the cape. Thank you, Google Images, for the yummy pic.
And for you gentlemen out there, January Jones does a nice job as the sassy and sexy White Queen.
If I lost you amongst my comic book memories, sorry! For those still with me, the amazing Zan Marie at In the Shade of the Cherry Tree tagged me. Check out my tag post here. Thanks, Zan!!!!!
