X-Men: First Class (2011)
I am a X-Men fan, but not a X-Men Comics fan. Probably because I didn’t read them when I should, and now I think it would be a waste of money to start buying all books. Well, back to the movie. I think the movie is good for a start of the story. I know that it should be difficult to choose the actors, specially when there is a continuation movie already. The movie is fun, has action, has drama, has lots of special effects, and a great sound track. I can’t complain much, and that’s why I voted 9 in 10 at IMDB.
I just think that at the end the director was with so much enthusiasm that he forgot some details. While we can argue that Magneto can fly, as the submarine is metal and, instead of moving the target, move itself, it is not easy to explain how magneto can make Sebastian Shaw fly. He should not be a metal guy…
As a final note, let me tell you I prefer Raven or Mystique in its blonde form…

Sucker Punch (2011)
Right, I have no idea why I watched this movie. OK, I confess I know why. Because a friend said I might like it, as there were lot of girls. I confirm, there are girls, and some are hot (although not really hot during the movie, but I googled them). But that doesn’t make it a good movie. There are a lot of special effects, but most of the times there are too much special effects, and it is not easy to really see anything. There are portions of the movie that are boring and, it seems that those movie parts are the ones that the director think are cool. Meh!
If you want to see something good in this movie, watch the first five minutes. They are great. Really. Nice music, nice acting, nice recording. More than that, the movie is bad, but the sound track is interesting. Voted 3/10 at IMDB. 2 for the sound track, 1 for the girls.
