  • Rube’s Reaction to X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    That said, I went to the theater to watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine this weekend. Now, here is a movie that had it all, in my opinion: action, explosions, love—both brotherly and romantic, redemption, hope, a decent plot and a guy on a motorcycle. It was a comic book movie in every sense, and one that was quite enjoyable and pretty believable, for the most part (unlike some of its comic-to-film predecessors that shall remain nameless).
