X-Men Origins Movie

Okay, so I'm a bit of an X-men freak. I've been reading the comic books since waiting for my piano lessons when I was only knee high to Professor X and I've followed the various cartoon and live action treatments of Marvel's great characters ever since.

But this latest movie is truly an adventure in both life (thanks Hugh Jackman) and screen writing. Here's a movie trailer to enjoy:

I was equally amazed and pleased that they put such care and cleverness into this prequel, though honestly, I didn't expect anything less than the best from Stan Lee.

As a writer, I know continuity is important, but it's also a challenge. As a fan, Wolverine has always been my favorite in the group for his wit, angst and inherently good instincts. And he's the sexy bad boy, so as a woman, I've always been thankful they cast Hugh Jackman, he's done a great job with the role and - whoa baby - that's some fabulous eye candy.

Happy Monday!

  1. You just like that he takes off his shirt every few scenes.


  2. What?! You have captchas, too? Argh.

  3. Yup.

    And I'll take off the captchas - thought that was done. sorry.
