Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

X2

After the gym I went out and saw X2 tonight. It was good, but I'm not sure I'd say it was better than the first one. Sadly I had one of the significant plot points spoiled for me ahead of time. There were maybe ten people in the theater (I think most of their target audience was in line for The Matrix.)

Non-spoiling comments:
I didn't think about it until afterwards, but they didn't have the sort of terribly intrusive music of which Daredevil was chock full.
Still not crazy about James Marsden as Cyclops. Too young compared to the rest of the cast and just not right in ways I'm not sure I can articulate.

Way back when I read most of the X-Men titles (starting with the new X-Men when they gained Storm, Wolverine, etc.) up until the mid-nineties. My mother bought them and I read them but then I went off to college and only read them on vacations, then I graduated (and at some point I think she may have stopped buying them.) I remember some stuff but there's plenty I don't.

JJOAPS

I'm really hoping the IMDB is just wrong wrong wrong about this.

Apparently James Marsden is supposed to be starring as Jesse Custer in a Preacher movie.

That's even worse than making him Cyclops.
