Xmen to Bad Teacher

In the theatre, we have only gotten to watch 2 movies this summer so far - lame I know *o* but we have been at Home Depot ALOT  ;p  Maybe we should buy stock (but at 33.85 I'm not too sure if I would want to) We have rented quite a bit though and I'll get those in the next movie post. For now just the two.

Xmen: First Class is to be the prequel to everything. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were each others nemesis, they were very close  friends but their opinions about how to co-exist with non-mutants tore them apart. I really really liked this movie as a movie but mind you I don't know about if it goes along with the comic books series, so my review is one sided. But I have some fun facts: 'The uniforms the X-Men wear are colored blue and yellow, in homage to the original blue/yellow suits the X-Men wore in the comics from 1963 (their debut) until (original artist and co-creator) Jack Kirby's departure from the book. After several costume changes throughout the years, the costumes used in X-Men inspired new black leather uniforms seen in the Grant Morrison written 2001 New X-Men comic).'--'A telepathic battle between Professor X and Emma Frost was going to be in the film, but upon the release of Inception the concept was scrapped.'--'During the Cerebro sequence, one of the mutants to be seen is Cyclops as a young boy playing with a glove and baseball, noticeable by his sunglasses.'

Bad Teacher is definitely not going to win any awards by no means but it delivers what it promises 90 lack luster minutes of entertainment in a a/c building. The premise of this flick is that Cameron D. LOVESSS money and her entire goal in life is to bag a rich husband so she doesn't have to teach (or work in any way) ever and she thinks the way to get 'ahead  of her competitions' would be to get a set of fake boobs. She meets a sub who is rich (Justin T) who is a complete .... dork - for lack of better words but he has eyes for a female version of himself (Lucy P). And I do have to add that I adore Jason Segal - he is adorable (he probably would rather have a different adjective though) Something about the mouthy language and crude scenes reminded us of Bad Santa - Cameron=Billy Bob, Lucy=John and Jason=Lauren so it is definitely NOT for the younger audience.
