    Oh no, somehow I ended up at BMWusa.com building an X3.

    What am I doing? How do I make it stop?

    dogg you gotta treat yourself to something

    if you're being sensible about your residence, you're gonna bag your lunch, and you're not like, buying a home theater to commemorate this job

    you have to be recklessly and irresponsibly indulgent and wasteful with at least SOME of the money

    i didn't emigrate to watch my friends drive 92 civics forever

    X-Men First Class was so terrible that it made me re-evaluate my life.

    I was like, "Why am I watching Kevin Bacon prance around in a plastic helmet as Disney Channel rejects muck around in the background? What horrible twists of fate have made me into a man who watches movies like this?"

    Everyone else seemed to enjoy First Class.

    I was prepared to forget how terrible the last few x-men presentations have been.

    I enjoyed it Robos as a fun action movie that just had some random x-men like characters.

    Tracy Morgan seems like a mentally ill person who stumbled into a casting call and was mistaken for a comedian.

    But the random X-Men characters were played by talentless young actors with all the presence and charisma of Rebecca Black. In place of character development, we got an interminable training montage and half-assed comic relief.

    First Class was great. Fassbender, Lawrence and McAvoy are amazing. The random kids are a little lame, but the first hour of the movie is great.

    I really liked it. Didn't think it was as good as X2 but a very solid outing nonetheless.

    Actually I found Xavier and Magneto pretty good. The rest weren't great but they weren't horrible. Some of the characters for intensive purpose were blank slates the whole movie. I wasn't a big fan of how Emma Frost was portrayed.

    But I enjoyed the fights. Kevin Bacon actually did a decent job as the villain. And how can you bitch about Magneto picking up a sub and throwing it on a beach.

    Even when the FBI agent strips down to her underwear to break into a sex club?

    And then she doesn't do anything else for most of the movie, until it's suddenly decided that Charles needs a love interest so that nobody thinks he's into Magneto?

    Yeah, I think I would place it under X2 but over X1. X2 kind of fulfilled almost all my hopes and dreams for an X-Men movie. And the end, I had so many hopes to a great movie with Phoenix. Shame they never made it.

    I need to rewatch it again. I've ranked at as my favorite superhero movie but I think I've only watched it like once or twice.

    The only major problem with X1 was Halle Berry, and there are much worse actors in First Class. The girl who plays Mystique in First Class immediately comes to mind, and the worst part is that she's much more important to the plot of her film than Berry was to the story of X1.

    You should go to the zoo and pick a fight with the largest animal you can find. If you win, then all the other animals will know that you're nobody's bitch and treat you like a king.

    Mystique wasn't great but she wasn't Halle Berry bad. I disliked either portrayal of the characters. But really my complaints on first class and most of the X-men movies are really comic book fan complaints. Not so much movie complaints. Okay, outside of X3 which was just horrible no matter how you look at it. Wolverine was just as bad. Worse even.

    Berry just had to hang out in the mansion and appear marginally dangerous. Mystique's actress carries the series' major themes of alienation and self-acceptance, has personal conversations with both male leads, and participates in the film's primary romantic subplot. All of it is far beyond her abilities and affects the quality of the entire film.

    I disagree, I thought Jennifer Lawrence did a great job as Mystique.

    If I got into a fight right now, I'd just start biting the dude/dudette. There'd still be punching and kicking and grappling. But if I got close enough, they gon get bit.

    Spoiler:

    Ideally, that would've been the entire film. Partway in Xavier could show up as, and then you'd slowly build their relationship and the underlying conflict between their moral outlooks.

    Stripping away all the crap about the younger mutants and nuclear war would've given us a much better film.
