It was weird though. I really got into the movie, and there was more than once where, for half a second I thought to myself "Turn the movie down, you'll wake the baby!" It freaked me out that I would think such a thing! I mean, that's weird, right?
L.B. is totally awesome for looking after Cherry so we could go out. She's a great friend. She's great for other reasons too, but especially awesome for watching the kid for FREE! Everyone needs a friend like L.B.
Ok, so the other day, my old TV/Film acting instructor came into the hardware store and came through my till, and I'm all "Hey, I saw you on 'The L Word' playing a waiter. Have you had any good roles lately?" And he says "Um, well.. have you seen 'The Fog'?" And, of course, I haven't, 'cause I don't watch scary movies anymore....
Anyway, stupid, modest prick, is
IN THE OPENING SCENE OF X-MEN, PLAYING JEAN GREY'S DAD!!!
Um, hello?!? Yeah, maybe that'd be a good role you could have mentioned, silly!
And on a similar note, the bald kid that's in the movie, you know, the IMPORTANT kid... well, he's played by Cameron Bright, and that kid lives in my town. He's a big star!
And the movie was filmed in several locations, two of which were REALLY close to where I live. And no, I didn't know about the extras' call until the day of, and I was either pregnant or had a newborn at the time, so I didn't get to be in it, but I KNOW people who were. Does that make me cool?!?
Ok, so we watched X-Men 3 last night, and if you haven't seen it, then STOP READING HERE! TOTAL SPOILERS AHEAD!!! GO AWAY, STOP READING NOW!!
(Are you gone yet?)
Ok, so for those of you who have already seen it, I want some discussion here!
1.) Is this it? Is this the last movie in the series?
I think it must be, I mean, three movies is tidy. Anymore, and it can get messy, boring and lame. And really, I mean, can you REALLY make another movie without all of those major characters? And is Prof X just going to have the same VOICE, but a different body (if you didn't watch the scene after the credits, then you've missed out.)
2.)Do you remember the comic or the cartoon? Rouge was one of the most powerful X-Men. Maybe not as powerful as Jean/ Phoenix, but probably at least a "Class 4". It seems lame that she would just "cure" herself before she realized her full mutant potential (flying, etc.). Of course, it could very well be that the "cure" doesn't last forever (as hinted by Magneto moving the chess piece) and she could get her powers back, and figure out her other ones. And now that that "cure" kid is at the school, if she WAS to get her power back, she could just hook up with him, 'cause she wouldn't harm him. Either that, or he'd just have to hang around her and Bobby as they got it on! Oh, and yeah, if Rogue can wear gloves and not harm someone, then, couldn't she just figure out some sort of "dental dam" sort of thing to kiss Bobby with?
3.) What was WITH that dude who grew horns under his skin and could just rapid fire them all over the place?!?! Don't you think that was a little crazy, and perhaps a little unrealistic!?!?
(There I go again, thinking about how the TEETH on the talking turkeys is what is unrealistic!)
Anyway, I'd love your input! Esp. since all of you who have seen it, have been TOO CHICKEN to let any spoilers out! I've done it for you, now, we can talk about it!
