One more day…

…and it all begins…

Yeah, I’m taking a vacation day just so I can go to a matinee of this tomorrow. Pulling my son out of school early too. The matinee should allow us to take the baby and not disturb a lot of people in case she starts fussing.

If this is wrong, I don’t wanna be right!

It’s going to be a great summer!

The first two movies were pretty good! The third one absolutely sucked and drained all hope that I had for FOX Studios to do this franchise right. This hopelessness was then reinforced by the Wolverine movie which took an extreme number of liberties all of which were livable until we got Barakapool*.

The first teasers and trailer did nothing to assuage my fears, but this second trailer does look better. Maybe even enough to look past how FOX screwed themselves with the first three movies so they can’t have the REAL First Class: Cyclops, Jean Grey, Angel, Iceman, and Beast (who is the only member to show up in this new movie)**.

First trailer was unfortunately very scary. A CGI Green Lantern suit was an interesting approach. The “biosuit” look was also interesting, but livable. The “poorly photoshopped” mask screamed failure at the highest levels! However, they have improved the look with this new trailer and this movie just looks amazing!

The mask still looks wrong, but the rest of it looks so amazing that I think it won’t be noticed as much as long as they avoid closeups of it.

And the movie I’m looking forward to the most!!! CAPTAIN AMERICA!!!

The only way to make this movie better would be to release it July 4th weekend.

*A nickname fanboys have given the Deadpool character at the end of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He’s a cross between the true Deadpool character and Baraka (a Mortal Kombat video game character).
**Yes, I’m a somewhat bitter fanboy myself given the horror that was X3.
