I'm really anxious about this one. I still think "X2: X-Men United" is the best comic book movie so far and this may be the first top notch X-Men movie since that movie. Been waiting a long time for such a movie to come along. It would be nice to have more than one great X-Men flick out there in the world.

This.

Agreed.

I didn't have too much hope a month ago but I'm pretty psyched right now, I have to wait until Saturday afternoon. I'm not sure I can.

Will you marry me?

I am seeing the film on Thursday at midnight, with plans to see it again Friday evening. That's how confident I am this is going to be good.

Loving all the great reviews this is getting.

In fact it's looking more and more like ALL the superhero movies this year are going to be good. Can't remember the last time that happened.

Has it ever? If it has I want someone to beam me back to that time so I can enjoy it.

But it really does look like that is going to happen, even Green Lantern is looking better and better.

I don't think there has been this many superhero movies in this frequency and especially clumped this close together.

I wasn't all that excited about this movie, but the promos make it look pretty good.

- It's a period piece, which makes it all the more interesting.

- Charles Xavier is bald but once had thick lustrous hair.

- Yellow spandex doesn't look so bad afterall. Okay, the outfits aren't spandex, but they're yellow and they work.

The score is out...and it is awesome. Probably my favorite since John Ottman's excellent X2 score.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

Yay soundtrack! Still no other merchandise that I've heard. I was going to go to the Midnight show, but I figured it would be too crazy.

To the folks who have dittoed being 'anxious about' First Class- are you anxious about as in weary of the film or anxious *for* as in can't wait? I suppose one could be both, and I see some who had negative expectations are now looking at the positive.

Maybe the summer comic movies will be good, but remember Green Hornet started the year of the superhero off in dismal fashion

^ "dismal" is an understatement. It was atrocious.

Re: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - Grading+Discussion **SPOILERS!**

I don't see the point of doing a Magneto Origins film, if they're still planning to do that. Doesn't the beginning of the first X-Men film, along with First Class, basically cover that topic?

This movie is essentially that. And no they're not pushing forward with a Magneto Origins movie.
