Warning: This movie contains comics and JFK and may cause Gerard Way to jizz in his pants.

Tonight was a Big Island Jazz & Blues Association event, at which there was great dancing, excellent music, and fabulous spoken-word poetry. And then I went to see the X-Men period piece X-Men: First Class. I'd had two glasses of wine at the jazz thing so I was maybe a tiny bit drunk at the start of the movie, haha.

The movie, by the way, was AMAZING~!! And I swear that's not just the alcohol talking. The film did a great job at connecting with the audience; there were a lot of moments where we all laughed or groaned or cheered or clapped together (probably helped that there were clearly so many nerds in the audience, but even so). Lots of great references to the greater X-Men continuity. Fassbender (sexy, sexy Fassbender) did a brilliant job with Magneto, and when he had the helmet on he even looked like a younger Sir Ian McKellan. And let me just say, there was a lot of sexy in this movie. I mean, James McAvoy is hardly rough on the eyes, and that delicious accent ain't hard on the ears either. Lucas Till? Pretty. Nicholas Hoult? ADORBS. Álex González? So sexy. Caleb Landry Jones? OMG YES PLEASE I WANT ONE PLEASE CAN I CAN I?

Baconface Kevin Bacon did a good job of being evil. Logan cameo was awesome and hilarious. The end credits were full of SCIENCE and awesome music. And how funny is it that Emma Frost was played by a chick named January?

In other news, I can smell the slashers coming. Like, holy crap, don't even make them work for it, Mr. Vaughn. XD; Xavier/Magneto, obviously, although I can totally see there being a tiny but diehard group of Havoc/Darwin slashers.
