X-Men: First Class

Recommended Posts

Not just anyone can pretend to wield the power of magnetism and make it look dignified. I quite like Fassbender, but he's no Ian McKellen when it comes to intensely gripping at air.

:boogie:

RE: That whole Emma Frost in X-Men Origins Wolverine thing: They had a girl who was blonde and turned into diamond, but she was Silver Fox's teenage sister in the movie, her character was hardly in it and she didn't act in any way like Emma Frost. I don't think they even explicitly stated that she was named Emma Frost either, so I think they can get away with that piece of supposed discontinuity.

 

I mean, come on. They're still talking about make a Deadpool movie. If continuity was a the forefront of the producers' minds they'd have to swing one hell of a workaround for that one.

HAHA! Love it! Why isn't J. Jonah Jameson berating that filthy, dangerous mutant?!?!

I know, right?

 

I was a bit wary when I first heard about this, seeing as the last two (X3 and Wolverine) sucked balls, but this one seems it'll beat Thor and Marvel at their own game.

Yeah, this one's looking like it might be surprisingly good - it's crept under the radar somewhat, publicity-wise, but the initial word seems very positive.

Would be quite a slap to Marvel if Fox (after several crappy adaptations) made a "better" Marvel movie than their own production company, so their flicks somewhat suffer from trying to service the overall Avengers plot.

I just saw it.

 

"Hello, I'm Charles Xavier."

"And I'm Erik Lensherr!"

"Go fuck yourselves."

 

Classic.

 

Greatest comic book movie ever.

Buy what he lacks in McKellen-level dignity he makes up in being a stone cold badass.

I know of which scene you refer to. I can't wait to see that.

 

"Greatest ever"? That's a bold statement, sir. If it's not, will YOU refund my $$$ ? :tongue:

Not me, no. But you will be entertained. No one comes close to Heath Ledger's Joker, but it has more than its share of 'magic tricks'.

There are a reason Logan looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt?

Not the greatest comic book movie ever.

 

But it is fun and worth the price of admittance.

 

Eric's story line is probably the strongest part of the film, everything after that winds down is less well plotted. Fassbender rules this film.

 

The final fight is pretty good too.

Supposed to be Judd Nelson (Breakfast Club for anyone that didn't get it).
