Why They Don't Call Me [Jan. 1st, 2012|10:29 pm]

We just watched markgritter's new DVD of X-Men: First Class, and I totally have ideas for the new mutants for their next movie, X-Men: Coach! Okay, so First Class featured such stellar mutants as Nightcrawler But Red And Evil, Screams Like A Littull Girrull, and Guy Who Remembers What Decade We're Supposed To Be In And Dresses Accordingly. So for Coach, I figure they should have Leprechaun! Who will be like Nightcrawler but green and evil! And also Animal! Who will be like Beast but red! And a drummer!

Actually this title is totally misleading; I don't know why they don't call me about these things.

You know, if you'd asked me before tonight, I would probably have said that my X-men-related affections could be bought for the price of one pretty good Beast. And it turns out no, I am not that cheap. Good to know.

You'll just have to wait for X-Men: Premium Economy, in which Beast takes on the Wall Street establishment in a series of dramatic proxy fights.

I have been reliably informed that Nightcrawler But Red And Evil is in fact Nightcrawler's Dad.

There were several things of which we said, "But that's canon!"/"But it's still bad!" in this movie.

I'm sure Erik/Magneto could have gotten an extra convert at the end if he had brought up the yellow jumpsuits.

Although, I do have to wonder, who does the Brotherhood's tailoring?

In Aberrant, the weird Nova supremacist faction had someone who could wove their costumes out of their own spit.

I suspect Marvel wouldn't be that gross, but you never know.

You thought Beast was pretty good? Huh. I enjoyed the movie, and I thought Beast was horrid.
