I spent most of the week trying to score an invitation to a pre-screening of the hotly (is that a word?) awaited movie. As you have noticed, the Chick Flicks girl loves her Hugh! I don’t know anything about the Marvel Comics, the other X-Men or what their mutant powers may be. All I know is Hugh Jackman is gorgeous!
What Are Your Mutant Powers?
Finally! After standing in line for over an hour with a lot of other people who I thought we there, like me just to see Hugh, I got into the theater. How wrong I was. These people were actually there to see mutants. I know because the people behind me were talking about the various mutants, their respective powers and comparing them to other superheros like they had gone to high school with them. I got a brief education on mutants, Spiderman and someone called ‘Deadpool‘.
But my main focus was on the Wolverine. For those of you who missed the first 3 X-Men movies, the Wolverine’s mutant power is that he has instant healing abilities and he has claws. Oh yeah and his skeleton is coated with adamantium. Anywho…None of that is important for a true Chick Flicks Girl.
All you need to know is Hugh Jackman is HOT. And when I say HOT, I mean the surface of the sun HOT…I am talking core of the earth HOT…McDonald’s coffee HOT!.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine starts with James Logan (The Wolverine) and his brother Victor Creed/Sabertooth played by Liev Schreiber as children in Canada. They both have animalistic mutant powers. After fighting in several wars they become mercenary soldiers with a team of other mutants for William Stryker, who uses them to do his evil bidding. Included in this band of mutant mercenaries is a really buffed up Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson / Deadpool. (Ok…so this is the Deadpool the nerds fans were talking about). Look for Ryan in a real chick flick this summer in The Proposal with Sandra Bullock.
But See, it is a chick flicks, because there is a bit of a love story in here too) But his brother is still mad and comes after my man, seeking revenge and killing Logan’s girlfriend.has a good heart and quits the Mutant X Program, leaving his brother Victor/Sabertooth behind and not in a good mood. Logan/Wolverine goes back to Canada where he falls in love with a school teachers. (
On his search for his hard-hearted brother Wolverine goes to New Orleans and teams up with another mutant named Gambit/Remy LaBeau, played by Friday Night Lights’ Taylor Kitsch. (that makes 3 Hunks) For the next hour, there are lots of fight scenes, death, destruction and oh yeah…Hugh gets NAKED!…ok….I’m back now….fight scenes, death, destruction and …I’m sorry what was I saying. It’s not important as I said NAKED! But it is shot with a very wide-angle, so you really can’t see anything. This movie is full of shots of Hugh’s very fit physique.
Did I like X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Excuse me, didn’t I say that Hugh Jackman gets naked. ‘But what about the story line, the plot, the performances?’ What is it about Hugh Jackman naked that you don’t understand? Sci-Fi movies, mutants, comic books or superheros may not be your thing, after all this is called Just Chick Flicks, the one thing we all enjoy is a Sci-Fi action movie with 3 handsome leading men who just happen to have mutant powers.
