This is my favorite of the X-Men series, as I felt it captured the feel of the comics best. Great opening sequence with Nightcrawler in the White House and every scene with Wolverine kicked butt. It also showed us a lot more of the vast X-Men army.
Jean Grey grows stronger as a person in this film. The only X-Men member without a nickname might not stand out in the crowd, but she’s a powerful force. She has abilities beyond what the others can imagine.
Who is Jean Grey?
Joylene Nowell Butler!
She might seem like just another author, but there’s a lot more to her than meets the eye. Joylene is a dedicated force, both to her craft and her friends. She’s already won an IPPY award, so there’s no telling what else she will accomplish!
Joylene is the author of Broken But Not Dead and Dead Witness.
To you I dedicate Xanadu by Rush. (Title leads to YouTube.)
The song is based on the poem “Kubla Khan,” something I thought you would appreciate. “To stand within the pleasure dome, Decreed by Kubla Khan…”
Trivia and Facts:
Who played the villain William Stryker in X2?
W’s trivia answers – Karen lives in Albuquerque, NM, USA, and HG Wells wrote War of the Worlds in 1898.
SC announced the agents for Query Combat – and a mini contest before it begins.
Rise of the Guardians
Finally got a chance to see this one. I liked their take on the characters – a Russian Santa, an Australian Easter Bunny, etc. The animation is unique – the people were done simplistic while the scenery was in amazing detail. Overall, too long (even at ninety minutes) but worth a rental.
Richard Hughes posted about why writing erotica is a woman’s thing.
My response was that I don’t want to write it, I want to do it. (Hey, being honest here!)
Here’s what would happen if I tried to write a sex scene:
Write one line.
“Crap, that’s awful.”
Delete. Write a new line.
Bark of laughter. “That’s even worse!”
Delete. Write another line.
“Now that’s not bad…”
Ditches writing sex scene and goes in search of wife for the real thing.
That’s why you’ll never get anything remotely sexual from me! (Not to mention it just goes against my morals.) Any other men feel the same way?
Fan of the X-Men movies? Following the awesome Joylene? Know the trivia? Excited about the agent contest? Seen Rise of the Guardians? And how do you feel about erotica?
