Wolverine Origins: some nudity


By TheCharp - Posted on 02 May 2009

First, this was a great way to spend the afternoon.

Hugh Jackman is in awesome shape.

Second, my husband was a little annoyed about mid-way through when he realized, "I'm not going to see any boobies, am I?"

To which I simply grinned.

 At that point he resigned himself with this, "At least Matthew McConaughey isn't in it!"

No. And he would probably feel very wimpy wimpy next to Wolverine. . .

Okay then, take your hubby to see "Obsessed" to watch Beyonce kick butt.

So, you would recommend seeing it.  I hated X-Men 3 and Wolverine has a "rotten" rating (37%) on Rotten Tomatoes.  I've read lots of bad reviews on IMDB, as well.  I'm not sure I want to spend the money seeing it if it is going to be a "directionless plot" type of film.  I love seeing movies, but I might just wait and see Star Trek twice next weekend.

My husband and I both enjoyed it.

I'm a Wolverine fan, and have been for decades, but I'm not a "purist." Never have been. (He's only like 5'3" in the comix and Jackman is at least 6'2", for example.) It's the attitude and flaws of Wolverine that I like so much, and the movies (and Jackman's interpretation) do a good job with that.

The back story of his youth, his relationship with his brother, Sabertooth, and their "evolution" into who they became, WHAT they became (which is not to say the "mutant" side of them), was, to me, very satisfactory. 

On the other hand, there was one very glaring "flaw" in the movie that my husband and I picked up on. Though it might not actually be a "flaw," depending on how any of the next "Origin" stories go. To avoid spoilage, I'll just leave it at that!

I rarely agree with mainstream reviews or "fandom" reviews, though.

I will probably to see it again with my daughter. She's a Wolverine fan, too (wonder why!)

But we are also definitely going to see Star Trek, even though I've got very low expectations on this one. I'm not keen on the "peek" at Kirk from the trailers. And I *am* kinda, sorta a "purist" on Star Trek, having watched the original series during my "coming of age" period, there are a few things I'm just very inflexible on!

I saw it this afternoon and really enjoyed it.  I really didn't need to catch the glimpse of Hugh's butt, though.  My mom enjoyed that part too much.  Heh!  I'm not really a comic book fan, so I just enjoy the movies for what they are.  Wolverine was much better than the wretched X3 and the special cameo at the end was a nice surprise.  

As to Star Trek, just remember that time travel has been shown to change everything in the Trek-verse on several occasions, so don't be too disappointed with the re-boot's changes.  If you remember the TNG episode "Parallels" then the new movie will make much more sense.  I just read the graphic novel prequel (Star Trek: Countdown) to the movie and it helps to put the whole movie in context.  I found it at Border's for $18 and if you're a comic fan I would recommend it.
