Thank God I Wasn't Paying Better Attention

I love to get excited about things. I love the growing anticipation of counting down the days till, for example, I can see a movie that I have been stoked about since the mere idea of it was mentioned. Harry Potter movies are great for this - especially because they always come out right about the same time of the year. Every time I am lucky enough to even see one of those teaser trailers, I can't resist furiously rubbing my hands together because the energy which is suddenly manifested in my body reaches some kind of over-saturation level and must be released from my body in the form of kinetic energy. It should be fairly obvious that I kind of live for these types of things - I live to look forward to events. (Maybe that's a crappy way to live, but I can't seem to entirely break myself of it.) So when I found out about X-Men 3 complete with Archangel and sentinels was coming out, I was thrilled. Luckily, however, I somehow missed the fact that it was coming out this weekend - so that I ended up only being pumped full of eager impatience about it for a little less than week. I say this was a good thing because I, of course, saw it the first possible opportunity that arose - and all I can say without giving anything away is . . .

D I S A P P O I N T M E N T

I will discuss this newly found deep-seated sadness with anyone – I just don’t want to say anything at the risk of ruining the disillusionment for anyone else. So if you are with me or against me, let’s talk about it.

I enjoyed the movie whole lot more after they offed James Mardsen. He was too prissy to be a team leader.

And I hate Ben Foster as Angel. There are lots cuter blonde boys they could have used. Especially since Warren is to be a playboy. Ben Foster still looks like the whinyass Russell from Six Feet Under.

Yeah - I'm definitely with you with the whole James Marsden thing - he drove me crazy.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Can someone tell me why this exchange never happened in the movie's climax -

WOLVERINE: It's just too much, I have to kill Jean, to save the world! There is no other choice! She's too powerful to live!

BEAST: Yeah, tell me about it. If only there were someway to take her powers away without killing her!

WOLVERINE: What? That's crazy talk (gets shot at with a hundred and fifty little needles full of mutant de-powering serum) Hey! Stop shooting at me with mutant de-powering serum you guys! I have to go and kill the only woman I love because her mutant powers are too powerful! I have no other choice!

BEAST: Uh, Wolverine, call me crazy but I got an idea . . .

WOLVERINE: You and your furball ideas! Now, move I gotta girlfriend to kill.

END SCENE

By the way, K-Polly LOVED the movie. Loved it.

Let's see if he comes to its defense . . .

Are you kidding?? K-Polly loved it? That makes my heart sad. And, yes, that line of dialogue would have fit in so nicely. Oh well.
