X-Men
Despite heavy hints by Mark Kermode that I should go and see Hard Candy plus recommendations from stelmaria_clg that United 93 had more substance - I went to see X-Men: The Last Stand last night.

I'm not, nor ever will be a superhero freak - there are so many other people who do it much better - but I did enjoy parts of both the first and the second movies. I thought the third one had those "moments" and the set-pieces (like the Juggernaut/Shadowcat chase you've all seen in the trailers) were mostly pretty good, but it was less satisfying and far more mediocre overall than its precursors.

On the plus side it was nice to see the Brotherhood of GothsMutants kept many of the local alternative population in work for a couple of days and despite her make-up looking a bit shoddy, a bit of Mystique goes a long way.

Now I seem to be awake a good couple of hours before I'd hoped - and better start getting stuff ready for this evening's jaunt to Sheffield and Leeds. Somewhere out there there are batteries needing charging! As no self-respecting superhero would ever say.

Oh and if anyone fancies United 93 or Hard Candy next week let me know.

Oh yes :-)

Excitement beyond the imagination of anyone who has the misfortune to live in Birmingham.

I would be up for either or both, actually.

Considering Sunday evening for Hard Candy. How does that suit you?

I'm quite keen to see Hard Candy, and Sunday evening works fine for us. I'm also very keen to see Fearless, which I believe opens this weekend. I'm contemplating that as a Friday late showing special. Interested?

I'm not sure when this message was posted but it has only just come through.

Which week(end) are you talking about? I'm free most of this week with the exception of Saturday night and early evening today.

Poot. Have you already been to see HC?

Nope. Do you want to take this to txt and maybe go tonight or tomorrow?

X-Men fans can only ever be disappointed with that flick, seeing as it tramples all over the canon storyline, and then stabs it several times for good measure.

But my question is: if Juggernaut's power is entirely due to momentum, how does he extricate himself from the floor?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: June 17th, 2006 11:17 am (UTC) (Link)
He was creating momentum by flapping his tongue...

I tried not to think too hard about it - but did think that during the scene.
