    Agree with almost all of this. McClellan and Stewart are fantastic. Fassbender to me is the best actor in the entire series. It also helps that First Class is my favorite of the films. The only disagreements I have are on Jean and Scott, they are both OK to me but not quite perfect. Those are the roles I could easily see new actors step into the roles while the others listed here would be a tough sell if they were replaced.

    I thought both did admirably and the downfall to me was the scripts. Cyclops should have received more character development and the Jean story...Jesus they screwed that pooch.

    She was absolutely ghastly. The most glaring error being changing her accent halfway through the film one and then having it disappear for films 2 and 3.

    Yeah it could have been more script than actor but still neither were able to imo inhabit the role like you mentioned Jackman or RDJ doing.

    I think Hugh has at least 2/3 more X-men in him.

    I saw Turbo with my 7 year old. The tickets were $25 combined and that wasn't even 3D. The popcorn and lemonade came to $15. That's Manhattan for you.

    McAvoy did a serviceable job. Fassbender was indeed a perfect young Magneto.

    I thought the 2 leads stole the show for sure. well cast. It was interesting to see how so many things were and how they came to past. It broke my heart that Raven left Charles to become mystique. Things like that, but now I can better understand magneto and the complicated friendship he has with Charles, So breathtaking.

    interesting, I liked the film and I stick by it, but I agree the 3rd act is why it gets only a B+ from me.

    Didn't post that to argue against your opinion, just found his input interesting. It actually sounds like a good movie from his descriptions and comments. Certainly better than the Origin one.

    Oh I know you didn't and it was interesting I was just saying. It really is a good movie,but the 3rd act is a bit different.

    The 12 pk was definitely worth note. ROTFLMAO.

    I really enjoyed The Wolverine, but after seeing it, I would watch Tao Okamoto in a film about insurance seminars.

    This is Starring Hugh Jackman.


    Bluegrass, Yes Very good.

    X-Men: Last Stand would of has Joss Whedon writing in a love scene between storm and Wolverine. Damn, you Fox,damn you to death.
