Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I am not a big comic book fan (OK, I'm not a comic book fan at all), and I dislike movie violence (or other kinds for that matter), and I have avoided seeing the first two X-Men movies happily, but my ten year old dragged me out to see X-Men 3 despite my trepidation.  I have to admit that it was very good.  I was intrigued by the fact that the normal Good vs. Evil theme was not really followed.  In the movie reviews, Professor X is described as "Good" and Magneto is described as "Evil", but as my ten year old pointed out before we got the theater (while giving me a run down on who was who), Magneto believed that the humans were out to get the mutants, and he was probably correct.

In any case, I am not in the business of movie reviews, but I very much enjoyed the movie.  It was partly the company, as taking one of my kids to the movies is always fun, but it was also a pleasure seeing that the movie was a good deal less mindless than I expected, and a good deal more fun.
