The infamous letter ‘X’. So we meet at last. Thank goodness I don’t have to use this letter often…I could’ve written about ‘Xylophones’, but I don’t play. I could’ve used it in another work like ‘eXcellent’ or ‘eXcel’…but really I like X-men a lot so it works out…for this year. To view other blogs writing eXcellent posts using the letter ‘X’, visit here.
The Good: I love the newer X-men movie a LOT. They are so freakin’ good. Like, “geek out but quietly so the kids don’t wake up” sort of movies. I can’t wait until the next one comes out.
Unfortunately, there is no trailer yet since the movie comes out next year (SOB), but here is a link to an article entitled “X-Men: Apocalypse, What we know so far“. Sigh. All I know is that I am excited for the cast and a continuation of the story. I haven’t read many of the comics, although I would like to!
The Bad: I used to watch the old cartoon back in the day and I am not sure if I could watch them again. Every single time I try to revisit something I loved in my childhood, it destroys the magic that surrounded said show, movie, or place. Maybe, once my kids are older I can go back and see the magic again through their eyes. I will say, I am a little sad that Gambit hasn’t been in the movies yet. He was my favorite character as a kid.
The Katy: X-men has always been a part of me. I remember wanting to have super powers as a kid and watching X-men is an awesome way to visit what having powers would be like. There are great things done with the characters’ powers, but also consequences.
Side note: I freakin’ love Quicksilver in Days of Future Past. So funny.
