Film – X-Men: The Last Stand

This film is the finest piece of crotchsploitation since “They live”. The climax goes something like this:

SPOILER ALERT!

Jean is using her mutant powers to vaporize the ocean and create eye of the tiger around her. Everyone is running for their lives but Logan knows that he is the only one who can stop her from destroying the world. He reaches Jean at the centre. Jean is fighting her power but Phoenix (her alter ego) is more powerful.

Destruction is all around them and Logan’s clothes and flesh start falling off in little pieces. He heals fast and draws to her.

Jean: You must stop me before I destroy everything…
Logan: I love you…

He stabs her from below with his amazing retractable claws. Jean’s head and shoulders arch back. Ocean returns to liquid form and the world is a happy place.

Oh yeah, there was plot too but who cares?

Anticipation

This month in my life has not been very blogalicious. To tie you over, here is the e-mail trace from my morning conversation with Chris. Pitchfork news and reviews often bring a smile to my face. The one about Morrissey and baby seals few months ago made my day.

Hey,

Not at all, it’s just that they are releasing it for Cannes first, which is actually next week. oooOOOooo.

BLY!

That’s not a good sign. It means that they’re cutting and re-cutting it.

Well, I’m game, though you’ll have to wait even longer than that; it’s only coming out in October!

Love,

There is nothing quite like pitchfork media in the morning. You know how we go watch a movie and then something funny happens in the first five minutes and we’re like “wow, even if the rest of the movie sucks, it was worth going to see it.” This review did this for “Marie Antoinette”. And the movie is only coming out in, like, July.

It’s probably not even funny but it made me laugh.
