X-Men Origins: Wolverine
18 May, 2009

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a good, but not great, movie. I rank it about halfway between The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man. Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine. Nothing against his bum, but I could have used a few less scenes of him naked in trade for some of Lynn Collins naked. Just sayin’.

It is a little too intense for the under-ten crowd and has too many retcons for the nerd crowd. If you liked Iron Man, I recommend you catch Wolverine on DVD.


The Wrestler
3 May, 2009

Based on the hype for The Wrestler I expected more. The highlight definitely was seeing Marisa Tomei naked. The images were hard to see, the dialogue was hard to hear, and I never forgot that I was watching Mickey Rourke instead of Randy the Ram. I recommend skipping this film. (For those interested in professional wrestling, I recommend Beyond the Mat instead.)
