Kind of surprised Scott beat Cap in the recent poll (barely I might add ;) ), but he IS consistently hot. Emma's a lucky gal, except for some times when Scott gets all mopey (which seems too often :( ). Can't wait to see First Class this weekend, the reviews seems really positive and I'm more hopeful than ever that this will be a positive direction for the X-Movies. :)
I was also pleasantly surprised that Cyke won the poll over Cap. They were really neck and neck the whole week.I've read the reviews and I'm glad that it seems that they actually made a good movie this time (The Last Stand & Wolverine blew, imho) but the purist in me still hates that they changed so much stuff. No Cyclops or Jean? Set in the 60's? Mystique a founding X-Man?!?! Well, at least they got a cute guy to play Havok.
First Class is so much better than X3. Sure there are changes, besides the friendship-rivalry between Xavier and Magento everything EVERYTHING else is different from the comic. But it works well.
Yeah, a couple of my friends who've seen it says its pretty good movie, so when I eventually see it, I'm gonna try to stop comparing it to the comics and just enjoy it as a stand alone film.
Just saw First Class and it was great, even better than I had hoped. The special effects looked a bit average though due to the rushed production schedule, but most everything else made up for it. Kevin Bacon was actually a fantastic Bond-villain like Shaw, in fact the whole movie was like X-Men meets Bond. Michael Fassbender (who would make a good James Bond BTW) is the best part of the movie, he's an incredible Erik/Magneto, not to mention pretty damn sexy. No shirtlessness really from the guys though, although Lucas Till gets the chest plate on his costume ripped near the end, so you see a tiny little bit of chest anyway. The female characters don't get very much to do, which is the movie's only glaring fault next to not following comic continuity of course. Loved the 60's setting, design and clever ties to historical events. Overall the most entertaining movie I've seen so far this year. Sequel with the same cast & creative team, please! :)
No shirtlessness? Boo! XD Havok's powers should rip his clothes off everytime he uses it without that dish thingy on his chest. Glad you enjoyed the movie, DAN. I'm gonna watch it later today!
