How did I not know about Michael Fassbender? "But you killed my mother." !!!! Kevin Bacon's head gets the jukebox treatment!
Preferred powers: telekinesis and telepathy ... so pretty much I want to be Phoenix, but without all the crazy.
|Check out my belt.|
Nathan didn't like the disparity between Xavier's character in the beginning (hitting on girls in bars, drinking from the huge test tube thing) and the end (benevolent and wise)--he said there was too much maturing too fast. But James McAvoy is just so cute--like a powerful little mouse with a cute accent.
Mystique--played by the girl who will be playing Katniss in The Hunger Games. Personally her head looked funny while she was in blue mode--a bit wide. She is no Rebecca Romijn, but I think she did well. Does anyone else think it's weird that she's a sixty-year old in the other movies? Yes, her cells age more slowly ... but it's awkward to think about an old lady running around naked, and blue no less!
-Hugh Jackman cameo. Although ever since my bridal shower when I named him as the one celebrity I would leave Nathan for (joking! of course), my poor hubby has a bit of a complex about him. What made it worse: it was a joint bridal shower with my future sis-in-law, and when it was her turn to answer the question, she just blushed and said she wouldn't pick anyone over her fiance. Way to make me look like a scarlet woman ...
-Emma Frost's awesome sixties style. Big hair, wide belt, fluffy Russian hat ... awesome.
-How the Nazi coin came full circle.
-The retro X suits.
|Am I a diver? Or a kick-tush X-Man?|
-Magneto's helmet at the end. Red horns? A bit much, Erik.
-Mystique's total rebound from Hank to Erik ... but can I blame her?
-Cold War plots aren't my favorite because ... nothing happens. Okay, so there was great action in the movie, but it just feels overdone.
