Random Thoughts Movie Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

My nerd friends and I got up early again for a movie and I have this to say: Nerds everywhere, rejoice! The latest X-Men movie is out and it's really good. 

X-Men: Apocalypse is LONG. As in 2 hours and 23 minutes long, so you might stay away from the jumbo soda if you've got a small bladder. But, it doesn't FEEL that long. It seems like it went by in a flash. If you're a superhero movie fan, GO SEE THIS MOVIE. This is pretty high praise from me because the X-Men are my favorite characters out of the Marvel Comics world, but the X-Men haven't always been my favorite superhero movies. FOX just can't make a Marvel movie the way Marvel can, until now. This one gets an A.

And now, my random thoughts during X-Men: Apocalypse  (because we all know that's what you're really here for):

Some of these might be considered spoilers, so you know, be warned.

  • Poe Dameron without his head full of lush hair and as the bad guy? Boo!
  • So THAT'S why Storm has white hair.
  • Professor Xavier looks pretty good in 80's clothes, and with a head full of lush hair.
  • I'm really obsessing over the hair.
  • Magneto as a blue-collar iron worker? Yummy. 
  • Michael Fassbender is yummy no matter what. Even in the Assassin's Creed trailer. Yummy.
  • Pay attention.
  • Oh, the 80s. I miss the clothes and hair. 
  • Jennifer Lawrence is just beautiful.  That hairstyle looks really good on her. 
  • Seriously, what's with my hair obsession today?
  • Psylocke...she gets to make out with Aaron Rodgers.
  • I love Hank McCoy. Just a nice guy. With a hairy blue problem.
  • Sansa Stark does a pretty good American accent.
  • Angel is working that 80s rock star hair.
  • I want to be Jennifer Lawrence.
  • I love Michael Fassbender (see above) but he's really too young for the role. Auschwitz was 40 years before, the character was 12 or so at Auschwitz. That would make him 52 or so. Maybe he just ages slowly....
  • Quicksilver is stealing the show again. 
  • They got Nightcrawler a Michael Jackson jacket. Sweet!
  • Stan Lee's cameo was kinda dull. 
  • Ah, he's starting to fall in love.
  • Destruction.  Mayhem.  Yada. Yada.
  • And the Professor loses that gorgeous hair. Sad day.
  • But he gets his love. I think. 
  • Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry. I'm such a sap. Where are the napkins? I've got something in my eye.
  • Nightcrawler is giving Quicksilver some competition for the role of Chief Scene Stealer.
  • I can't believe they're doing it AGAIN. Every X-Men movie tells us: The good guys win because they work together. (And in this one because Sansa Stark is pretty damn scary.)
  • Psylocke sneaking away to make out with her quarterback. I would, too.
  • Ah, the gang's all togther, training with tough love from Mystique.
  • Chit chat during the world's longest credits, to watch a minute of post-credits video to get us excited for the next Wolverine movie. Like I need a clip for that. Hugh Jackman is the yummiest of all. And he's got GREAT hair.
