I loved when they had the dramatic pan of Mystique's naked body only to have it end with Xavier freak out about her not wearing any clothes.

I loved a lot of Mystique's scenes in general. I felt very bad for her in the scene where Beast acted like a jerk and I loved her scene with Magneto in his bedroom.

I remember before the movie came out, I kept thinking "Why the hell is Mystique in the film?" After seeing it, I realized that along with Xavier and Magneto, Mystique was the best character in the movie.

I guess SPOILERS are implied:

-Any time where Shaw is using his powers. I thought that was very interesting how they decided to visually show it.

-I liked Erik's introduction in the Swiss hotel room. The music was great.

-Hank and Raven's arguing about the cure

-The training and recruiting montages

-Erik's revenge in the Argentinian bar

-The entire attack on CIA scene

-Shaw's death


There's soo much to enjoy about the movie. I've seen this movie three times, paid three times, and I'm gonna have to see it one more time before the weekend's over.

That scene always cracks me up. McAvoy is great at those little comedic moments, on and off the camera.

Yeah, they used her to great effect and wrote her quite well. I liked how she grew so much throughout the movie.

Actually, that was in Switzerland.

I loved every scene between Charles and Raven. Their relationship as a whole was just spectacular.

I also loved Shaw's attack on the CIA compound. I think I was as frightened as the X students.

My favorite moment of the film was the scene between Erik and Charles where Charles helps him in rotating the satellite dish to face them both. When Charles was playing back that memory for Erik between him and his mother, that just had me in tears. It's moments like these that I personally believe will bring audiences back to see it again and again.

Hmmm, but they were speaking French, right?

I remember Magneto saying "yes" and it sounded like "oui" not "ja" (the only Swedish and French words I know.. )

Yeah, but I think French, German, and maybe Italian are well-known and oft-spoken languages in Switzerland. Anyway, I distinctly remember the caption in the hotel room saying Magneto was in Geneva, and Switzerland is famous for its banks.

- Seeing Beast choke Magneto.

- Banshee and Havok team up against Angel

- Beast and Havok vs Azazel

- Magneto in Argentina (damn pig farmers and tailors!)

- Darwin's death was surprisingly poignant and beautiful

Basically every single moment was a highlight for me.

Ditto that, from the opening scene to the awesome final scene... and did you see Mags helmet, it was exactly like the comics. Definitely a geek out moment!

Young Magneto's rage when his mother is killed - Probably my favorite scene in the movie. I feel like everything worked and the music was the best.

Magneto in the Argentinean bar

Darwin's death - short lived character but I liked him for what he was

Charles finding the memory inside magneto's mind

Wolverine's cameo...this is how a cameo should be done. Great humor too

Magneto vs Shaw, highlight being the coin death...pretty sweet and surprisingly gruesome for a PG-13
