"X-Men: First Class" - Matthew Vaughn
I kid myself I'm a grown-up. Then something like "X-Men: First Class" comes along and if you're unfortunate enough to watch it with me you'll be exposed to this kind of excited patter:
"Well, see, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence)? And Azazel? That bad guy that looks like the Devil? They're Nightcrawler's parents! And hehehe, Moira McTaggart (Rose Byrne)? She's not REALLY with the CIA! She's a geneticist! Are they smoking crack? However, she was TOTALLY married to Xavier (James McAvoy)! But in the Ultimates continuity, so I'm not sure if they're going to pursue that. Oh, look it's the kid from 'Skins' playing Beast! And, ugh, January Jones as Emma Frost? I guess January Jones does sound like a super-heroine with the power to be really cold in bed. Oh, man, this is sooooo awesome! Magneto (Michael Fassbender) is going to Cuba! Hmmm, I'm not sure I truly believe in Banshee's flying system, it seems to me like he would have to be screaming a lot more consistently to bounce off his sonic waves. Alex Summers is actually Cyclops' older brother, it's odd that they don't really hint at it. Hmmm, HELLOOOO, everyone knows Xavier is crippled by Lucifer! This is NOT how it happens! Hey, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw? *snort snort* I guess now we can play Six Degrees with the Marvel Universe!"
Usually around that point someone just shoots me in the stomach hoping to cause a painful demise.
X-MEN TO THE X-TREME! BEST X-MEN MOVIE EVAH!
Here's a cute picture of Rose Byrne because why not?
