knew this would happen. I made the comment, whatever But the Usual Suspects is not the topic. X-Men is, and I was specificaly mentioning Singer's tendency to say loose continuity" when he can't seem to decide if the films are in the same universe.
Sorry but I still don't see how "one" thing like Jean & Storm in the blackbird in "one" film is evidence of a tendency of loose continuity in the X-Films. Other than Halle Berry changing accents from X1 to X2, those films flow into each other flawlessly.

I don't usually go to see movies in the theater more than once (The Dark Knight was the last time I did), but I'm definitely considering going to see FC again.

My sister's gone twice.

My husband, the traitor, has gone once.

I have yet to go, but already know the whole movie thanks to them.

I thought it was fantastic. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were both brilliant as Charles and Erik. I really loved the '60s setting and putting the characters right in the middle of something as pivotal as the Cuban Missile Crisis. I really hope we get at least one more sequel; the 1960s are such a perfect era for the X-Men (no surprise, since that's when they were created, and that decade played such a huge role in their early development).
I read an interview a few months back where Vaughn said that if the series continued he hopped to set each film in the series in a different decade. So 2 would be in the '70s, 3 in the '80s and so on.

For that matter, I want to see her (onstage performing, not going into battle with the X-Men) in her full original "Disco Dazzler" regalia. The blue face make-up, the roller skates, the silver skinsuit, the disco-ball lecklace, the whole nine yards!

And she was out-dated almost before she was introduced!

Besides, Uncanny X-Men 130 was cover-dated February 1980. Given the lead time in producing comics, I think it's safe to say that she was actually created in the late '70s.

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

I'm still puzzled how Mystique pulled the Shaw impersonation, complete w/helmet, when she hadn't yet seen him in that outfit.

Immediately recognized that one of the two Nazis in Argentina is played by Ludger Pistor, who played Herr Meier in Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run).

I thought the Havoc Hula Hoop power was ridiculous looking.

As for the inconsistencies with The Last Stand and Origins: Wolverine, I suspect they were intentional. I don't think Singer was terribly interested in maintaining continuity with movies in which he had no part, and good for him.
Apparently, he wasn't terribly interested in maintaining continuity with the movies he directed either.
