X-Men: First Class
Q: What’s the movie about?
A: Before they were X-Men, they were X-boys and girls. This is the story of how they found each other, developed their powers, and chose sides.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, January Jones, Oliver Platt, Zoe Kravitz, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Till, Edi Gathegi, Alex Gonzalez, Jason Flemyng, Matt Craven, Laurence Belcher, Bill Milner, Demitri Goritsas, Glenn Morshower
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Go! In the world of superheroes, the story of how they became who they are is always going to be the most interesting part. And that goes for stories about regular people, too.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: There's a lot that's light-hearted and fun, but none of it will really make you laugh.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: The ending is really sad, because it has to leave us off where the original films begin. But it's also kind of exciting because we knew they had to get there. Kind of like the end of Revenge of the Sith.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: I give it the Award for not using 3D! I guess when you have a good story, you don't have to rely on gimmicks to get the audiences interested.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: The most emotional performance is Mystique's morphing. Can we give acting accolades to the special effects department?
Q: How is the Directing?
A: With Stardust, Kick-Ass and this, Matthew Vaughn can add another to his quickly growing list of films that I've given green lights. Except that I only gave Stardust a green light in my mind, because it came out a few months before I developed my mutant super power of giving out lights.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: I enjoyed how they incorporated the story of mutant superheroes into the actually history of WWII and the Cuban Missile Crisis. It's especially great because now, when we want to confuse our children about where the line is between history and fiction, we no longer have to rely solely on the 24 hour news networks.
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
A: X-Men: First Class Trailer
