movie review tuesday - x-men origins: wolverine

film: x-men origins: wolverine
starring: hugh jackman and liev schreiver
synopsis: wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against victor creed (who will later become sabertooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant weapon x program.
grade: a+

i am a huge fan of hugh jackman. and i am convinced that aside from husband, wolverine is the manliest of all men. with that put out there in the universe, it should be quite obvious that i loved this movie. the x-men movies have been amazing, and this latest installment did not disappoint. there was action, suspense, mutants, and unadulterated muscle. there were lose ends left to open doors to more movies to come, but i don't think that i really care the origin of many other x-men. jean gray/phoenix is a favorite, but her story played out - beginning to her depressing end in x3. i would love to learn how professor x came to be, but that film may leave much to be desired in terms of action and man flesh. no offense professor x, but physically you have nothing on logan.

p.s. this film was less predictable than the past three, but i still saw the end coming. just saying.
