There comes a time in every critic’s life…wait I used this already. Umm…there comes a time in every college student’s life when your brain has been friend like an egg because of papers and exams. And I, dear readers, hit that wall yesterday.
But I can’t just not blog – it’s just not in my nature to leave any wandering eyes without something to read and/or laugh at. So instead, I’m going to take a cue from Lindsay Ellis, aka the Nostalgia Chick and reveal my deepest and more shameful secret – my own person guilty pleasures movie list.
Guys, on this very special Manic Movie Magic, it’s about to get ugly.
5) X-Men Origins: Wolverine
I’m just going to say it – I don’t see what is so bad about this movie. I have seen it at least nine different times and enjoyed each one. It probably doesn’t help that I love Hugh Jackman and in my eyes he can do no wrong, but I genuinely don’t see what people dislike this film. The plot I thought was good, the directing is solid, the characters are fun, and it’s everything I wanted in this movie – Wolverine’s story. Sure, it might be one of the worst of the X-Men movie series, but just cause it’s at the bottom doesn’t make it bad. Honestly, I will own this on DVD someday. No one can stop me.
