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

Fassbender is reportedly the scene stealer in this film that I expected him to be. James McAvoy might have been billed as the star at first but this seems to be about Fassbender and his performance as Magneto.

The movie was awesome! I agree, Fassbender owns every scene!

Matthew Vaughn has said that Fassbender is rocking the Bond vibe in X-Men:First Class.

I'm so sad.

My husband says I can't go until next week.

Guess I'll have to wait a bit longer.

I can't believe how great the film is. I dare say it is the best superhero film since The Dark Knight. It is even better than The Dark Knight.

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

Like I said, I wasn't too excited about this movie, but liked the promos and ended up enjoying this movie quite a bit. I give it an A. It was nice to see how everything we saw in the other movies came together.

- Kevin Bacon played a great villain. He's not someone I'd ordinarily think of in such a part, but he did great, especially as a nazi. Loved seeing him in the helmet too.

- Fassbender... It's all been said already. Good stuff.

- McAvoy... Did well at chaneling the wise Professor X.

- The reasoning behind their call names was a nice touch.

- I like January Jones, but she wasn't the sexiest Emma Frost I've ever seen. This is...



When I first saw that pic, I thought it was a promo shot of January Jones. I wish they would have made her look like that. A lot of the cosplay stuff I've seen beats out the movie version if you ask me.

- Loved Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme, as well as her relationship with Charles. I also liked that they showcased Lawrence's natural beauty by giving her a lot of face and skirt time. But of course the blue skin is beautiful too.

- Nice to see Rose Byrne in anything.

- Poor Darwin. He gave it his best shot, but in the end, couldn't adapt.

- A few surprises...



- I preferred the first movie's score, but this one was pretty good too. I stayed through the credits just to hear it.

- One nit... Erik helped build Cerebro, but the turn he made at the end of the movie makes it difficult to believe that they could work together toward that end in the coming years.

- Another nit... Young Charles seems to have too much hair to be balding. Or did he shave his head?

- One question... Charles said that something can be found between serenity and rage. What was it? I missed what he said.

I'm pretty sure it was stated that FC is reboot of the series.

This movie was a solid A+. There was literally nothing about it that I didn't like. It didn't totally blow my mind either, but it was still great overall. Easily of the same caliber as X-Men and X2. Ah, Bryan Singer, why oh why did you ever leave?
Yeah hopefully fans will remember to give Singer some credit for this, after pretty much (and unfairly in my mind) throwing him under the bus for SR.

He may not have directed FC, but he surely helped craft the story and set the tone.

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

there's inconsistencies with all 4 previous X-flicks...

to whit:



so, I'd say, HJ's presence notwithstanding, i think we have to treat First Class as a reboot. guess it's no different to Dame Judi appearing in the DC 007 flicks after doing the Brosnan ones...

I can believe that McCoy invented Cerebro while Erik and Charles built a more sophisticated version on their own.

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

Mmm, I guess we'll just have to see what happens in Second Class and Third Class




EDIT- I didn't stay till the end of the credits as I was with friends who aren't massive geeks, and didn't wanna keep them waiting for possibly nothing. I'm sure read a few posts up that there isn't a said scene, but I just saw on the wiki page this- "A post-credits scene depicts Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey's acceptance to the school."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Men:_First_Class_(film)

Not like Wiki is overly reliable though, is this right?

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

Well, that was a lot better then I expected it to be. More in line with the first and second X-Men movies then the third or Wolverine.
There were a few plot holes and the CGI wasn't the best, but overall I liked the pacing and the action.
