A week ago I watched The Constant Gardner with Kelly and some of her friends. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect since the movie had gotten good reviews but hadn't done well in theaters. It was a pretty good movie. It had a really interesting story, one that I would be curious if there was any truth too. It was kind of a cross between a thriller and a drama. It dragged at a few times, but not too bad.
Last night Kelly indulged me and went to X-Men : The Last Stand with me. I was really looking forward to it, since X-Men was the series that began the recent rebirth of super hero movies in 2000. Unfortunately the director of the first two films moved on to direct Superman Returns. I think the combo of my high expectations and the movie not being quite as good as the last made me not enjoy the movie as much as I could have. I still really liked it, but it just wasn't amazing. It wrapped up some storylines in interesting ways. I missed the ending scene after the credits but I got the wrap-up. The word is that right now that this was the final X-Men film, but you never know after 145 million opening weekend.
