Saw X-Men 3 yesterday

(yes, yes, I also went to ConQuest this weekend, but I spent so much time holed up in my room hermitting, I am not sure I could be said to have attended much. Did try a few new games and at least said 'hi' to a large number of friends. But DAMN, if I had just entered a costume into the contest I think I had a good chance of winning a paid entrance into next year's Costuming Con. :O)

Anyway, back to X3. I liked it. I know some hated it. I suspect I know why. But I know I heard this was to be the last film, so I wasn't dreadfully surprised. And, hell, this is the Marvel Universe. Never believe someone is dead if you don't have a body. And you shouldn't believe it even if you DO have a body. Just sayin'. Jean is likely dead. But Scott? Debatable, as there was no body. Yes, I know she had a tendancy to turn bodies to dust, but...

However, if Charles ends up with his telepathy intact, in a totally non-mutant body, somebody's got some 'splaining to do. Assuming of course there IS another movie.

I am not even vaguely surprised the 'cure' is temporary. I was expecting it from the start. But it does change the dynamic of the 'weaponizing' of the thing - it goes from the equivalent of armor piercing rounds to rubber bullets. But I am thinking Magneto better watch his back, as Mystique will be back in form, as well.

I liked the added touches, tho. Hank saying 'oh my stars and garters' for instance. Wolverine-as-missile. And that one final thing Wolverine gets asked to do so very often, because they know he can, he will and he will make it as quick and painless as humanly possible. But so sad.

It was a comic book made into a film. It was great. And getting to watch Hugh Jackman walking in tight, black leather (especially away) made me bite my knuckle. Just thinking about it now, I bite my knuckle. damn. It's not just his body, there's something about his walk.....

Total change of subject: insomnia is a peculiar thing for a body to do to itself.
