Busy weekend for yours truly – this is the first time in a long while (probably in the last six months or so) where I was actually able to pull off seeing TWO movies in one weekend. How about that, eh? And it only gets better – I already have plans this Friday night to see Green Lantern, so make that THREE films in one week. Not too shabby, if I may say so.
But I’ll save the Green Lantern and DC Comics chatter for this weekend. Right now, it’s all about X-Men and Marvel, and I figured I’d start my pair of reviews with the film that I saw SECOND, not for any particular reason, mainly because it came out before the other film (Super 8) did, so I decided that I’d post this one first. Plus, what do X-Men: First Class and Super 8 have in common? There are already great reviews for these films that can be found on this site (FK99 did X-Men, while Adolfo tackled Super 8). Then again, you know what they say – it’s never official unless I, SportsGuy515, review it (hahaha, just kidding).
SO, without further adieu, let’s get on with my take on X-Men: First Class…
Megan (while shitting in the sink): “It’s coming out like lava!”
Hmph…would you look at that. Here I thought I would start the 2011 Summer Movie Season with something like Fast Five or Thor, but here I am, with my first review of the season, and it’s…Bridesmaids?
I dunno if I’ve made this statement in any review/column yet, but if I haven’t, here it is – I ALWAYS check out ANY FILM associated with JUDD APATOW, because 9 times out of 10, it delivers on the laughs, and then some. Can I add Bridesmaids to the list of such Apatow classics as The 40-Year Virgin, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Superbad, or does it belong on the short list of rare Apatow duds such as Drillbit Taylor, Year One, and You Don’t Mess With the Zohan?
