My timely review of X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Shockingly, this movie is as poorly thought out and awkward as its title. I'm no literary expert (although I did read both Angels and Demons and the Da Vinci Code), but a colon and a dash in the same title is just silly.

As far as the actual movie, I'm still wondering why we needed a montage of two Canadians fighting in a bunch of wars as soldiers of the United States. Even better was how that montage was probably the least nonsensical part of the whole movie.

I'll be skipping the inevitable sequels, prequels, threequals, and reboots. For a cinematic (and completely awesome) take on the X-Men check this out. I have all the paperbacks, and yes, you can borrow them.
