That's offset by Jennifer Lawrence being essentially naked for the entire movie. Whereas they only force you to look at Hugh Jackman's butt for a few seconds.

Most girls aren't as cool as my wife, who actively suggests watching comic book movies. So the womenfolk overall probably need some inducement to attend the show. I take it that Jackman fills this role.

Not trying to be priggish(srs), I find it near occasion of sin when scantily clad women are on the screen. I tend to stay away from modern movies. For my wife and daughter, I would think that a buff Wolverine would lead them to the same concerns. Again, just me.

I took my wife to see X-Men. There wasn't anything wrong with it... it was an enjoyable watch.

I liked it too.

Jennifer Lawrence was so coated in blue makeup that she didn't have any effect on me. Frankly, she's more of a temptation when she's wearing a nice dress.

Superman III. A friend and I got some good laughs watching this fun, cheesy eighties flick.

"Lone Survivor" with Mark Wahlberg.

Best new film I have seen since "Bella".

Incredible story of Natural Love and Bravery.

Great movie, made even better because it was fairly accurate. I've seen it twice.

Now You See Me
The Spanish Prisoner

Both movies are known for having a "twist ending", and they did a fair enough job with them to make them entertaining.  I preferred the former, but both were decent flicks.  Of course, they aren't as good as my favorite "twist" movies - Usual Suspects, Memento, Prestige, Primal Fear, etc.

I've heard that wahlberg of a practicing Catholic

Yes, and he talks about it quite a bit.  However, some of his movie choices leave a lot to be desired, so I'd guess that his career takes center stage over his faith.  I've never seen it, but I hear the movie "Ted" is absolutely terrible and raunchy.

I saw X-Men: Days of Future Past yesterday. I actually think it may be the best film in the series. Maybe.

It's either the new one or X2. Both are great. I just wish they would bring Nightcrawler back.
