X-Men 3

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.

You did stick around after the credits, didn't you? ;-)

I always stick around for all the credits, and usually my kids tease me mercilessly, but my ten year old was very glad I did, especially because my fifteen year old son had gone the day before and never wants to stick around for the credits, so my ten year old had something to go home and gloat about share with his brother.
