Our huge theater here only had one midnight showing for X-Men. In comparison, they had about 4 for X3. Today they opened up another midnight showing because I guess the other is starting to sell out.

You know, I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to see this at midnight, but I've spent so much money lately that I just don't have enough and I won't go aalone because that would be just stupid. I'll be seeing the first showing tommorow though.

Going alone isn't stupid. Sometimes I have to resort to that when I know it's a film my gf won't like or my friends aren't around. Also sometimes I just don't want to hang out with people. I'm tempted to se this tonight at midnight but of course I'm too sick to leave the house, hopefully i'll feel better later.

Yes, I know we're weird.
Well as long as you know

Why would you leave halfway through the film?

I will definitely be there at midnight tonight.

This is probably the least pumped I've been for an X-Men film, but I still think it's gonna be great.

Why?

Didn't you like X-men Origins? That movie was pure crap, and you're not pumped for this new one?

I think it will be better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I'm just the least pumped for it because I think the X-Men franchise is getting real close to running it's course, and there are some aspects of this film's creative direction that I'm not a big fan of.

I'm pumped, it's just the least pumped I've been for an X-Men film. But I anticipate it being better than Wolverine.

I get to see First Class AND Book of Mormon on Broadway in the next 48 hours, so it's all good.

I gotcha. It sounds like you're kind of burnt out on the series I take it.


As for the midnight showing. I would love to go, but my gf is sick of going to those and doesn't like to take the next day off of work. I don't want to go by myself like a chump, not to mention she would be bitter if I saw it without her.

I don't know if I'd say I'm "burnt out" - I love X-Men: The Last Stand and like X-Men Origins: Wolverine a lot - I don't have the same complaints about the series that a lot of people do (though I certainly understand why they have those complaints, they just don't bother me like they bother others)

I think that one of the really bad things about X-Men: The Last Stand was dead ending everything in the fashion that it did. It really limits where the movie franchise can go moving forward, and I think this series is getting really close to overextending itself.

I don't think it's done it yet. First Class seems like it's going to be quality, and seems to be telling a worthwhile story. But I feel like we're getting to that point where the producers, writers, and studios, are just scraping out whatever story they can plug in for the simple sake of making a movie, rather than telling a story that's really significant to the story the movies are trying to tell.

Obviously, all movies are made to make money. It's a business. But the X-Men movies are starting to reek more and more of "business" than they are of telling good stories. I'm just glad that we got Bryan Singer back into the fold, who at least has ties to the early films, so that this one isn't totally out of place.

Of course, I got the How to Succeed in Business cast album this week instead and now I want to see that again because I can't stop listening to that. It never ends, I swear...
