Last Saturday I saw X-Men: First Class with a couple of friends after a horrifically terrible attempt to see the movie on Friday after dinner on Friday.
After being kept at work until 6pm I made my way to the Cheesecake Factory. After a pleasant dinner (I being the only one satisfied with my order), my roommate quickly turned pale. Making sure she was okay enough to get herself home, my friend and I went to the theater to meet our other friend who had already bought herself a ticket. With just over 10 minutes to spare before the showing, we arrive to a completely PACKED parking lot and joined the dozens of cars circling like vultures. And after 30 minutes of not finding a parking space, my friend and I gave up.
We make new plans to see it in the next town over which had plenty of parking and an Uno’s Pizzeria nearby. Seeing as my roommate and I are from Chicago, we couldn’t resist the lure of a decent deep-dish pizza.
I liked X-Men: First Class. It was a fun flick that explored the origins of both Professor X and Magneto and the start of their long history together. I will probably talk more about this later so until then here some of men from the X-Men franchise particularly some James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender who was absolutely mesmerizing as Erik Lehnsherr.
