Three sentence movie reviews: X-Men: First Class
I enjoyed this blast into the groovy past of the X-Men franchise and particularly appreciated that the “establishment of time period” was done by using songs different than the same tired old “early 60s movie standbys” as evidenced by the inclusion of Freddy Cannon’s Palisades Park. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were excellent as Professor X/Magnito and Kevin Bacon went for it in his role as the bad guy. About halfway through the movie I leaned over to Matt and said, “I’m pretty sure that’s Mrs. Don Draper* playing Emma Frost.”
*January Jones, from Mad Men. And indeed, it was.
I pretty much love everything that has Mr. McAvoy in it! I enjoyed this reboot as well. It was a fun watch!
