    Personally I've never been a huge X-Men fan in fact I had never heard of them until the first movie. But I will say this movie looks like a lot fun and Hugh Jackmen is always a plus. Since I don't have a huge steak in how close it is to the source material I like it well enough.

    I have to say I loved it.

    It was fun, exciting, lot of action...or Star Trek made by a Star Wars fan. ;)

    And Zachary Quinto made Spock kinda hot

    Sold 9 out of 10

    Also according to the this article it was the best opening for a Star Trek movie ever.

    I only cared to see Terminator Salvation this weekend. It was fair enough definitely in the top 3 of the series.

    Anyone else catch it last weekend?
