Movie: X-men First Class

We actually saw X-Men: First Class a few weeks ago, but I have been slow to blog it. I was never a comic book guy growing up, and most of the deluge of comic-based movies over the past few years have come up a bit short, but this one is near the top of the distribution.

The "never again" sub-theme and the associated (and quite explicit - nothing is subtle in this movie) parallels the movie draws between the Jews and the mutants add a worthwhile serious tone to what is otherwise high quality fluff.

Recommended as summer fun.
