X-Men: First Class this time. Just saw it, and I am on an absolute high about it. Really, I have no idea how good this movie was. I suspect it wasn't all that clever, just a fairly cliché re-tread of old ground, and I am about as fed up of alternate Cuban Missile Crises as I am of zombies right now, but it was still the most fun I've had in a cinema for a long time.

Why? Why, nerdery, of course! One or two people here know that I've loved X-Men since I was a tiny sprog and used to watch the 80s cartoons with my dad even before I was really old enough to know what was going on, and I have always loved the franchise. This movie pushed all the right buttons, and the Charles and Erik button in particular. The relationship between Xavier and Magneto is one of the most awesome things in modern fiction and I love love loved it in this movie.

Hate how they messed up Moira, though. She is a crazy Scottish scientist, not a foxy American CIA agent. There was one second of pure brilliance when they almost made up for this character screw-up which I won't spoil, but the she opened her mouth again and totally failed to have a Scots brogue and I was saddened. Banshee was rather lacking in accent, too. In fact, there was a general avoidance of regional British accents...

But yeah, if you like X-Men, go see this movie, you'll love it. If you don't like X-Men, I'm afraid I don't know whether I can recommend it to you at all - I was far too blinded by geeking out to actually keep track of whether this was a good movie or not!



Anyone know any good X-Men RP sites in need of new blood?
