X-Men: First Class

Just saw it.

Liked it.

Found myself much more empathetic to Magneto than I expected, despite his failings to 'rise above' the petty fears and weaknesses of homo-sapiens. In retrospect, Xavier is just slightly short of being a saint, or completely idiotic, for his unabashed tolerance of 'our' callow behavior.

The movie as a whole sets the groundwork perfectly for the rebuilding of the franchise after the last two X-Men related movies, which were absolute abortions (the one before that wasn't much better.) Very pleased they made it.

More on it later!
