We discuss the perfectly and surprisingly delightful X-Men: First Class.
I promised a link to Movie Bob’s review and discussion of the film, as if you really need anyone’s opinion of anything that is not ours. Cretins!
There are problems with the film, which of course we discuss, but it really ends up being a a super positive podcast. Sorry haters, I guess you are gonna have to find somewhere else to get your hate on. Try Limbaugh.
I do have one problem with the film that is only tangentially touched on in the podcast. We discuss that Professor X is a bit of a dick, but I never mentioned how much I hate watching him use his powers.
I don’t think I’d have been bothered if he did the ol’ finger to the temple thing when he was really focusing or, like, when it was really important for us to know he was using his powers, but for some reason it was decided that EVERY DAMN TIME Xavier used his powers, which was in almost every single damn one of his appearances on film, he had to put his damn hand on the side of his damn head. As you can tell I found that slightly annoying. Pretty good movie though.
