Big Burly Men and Stuff

Could I BE more excited for X-Men Origins: Wolverine?  No.  I really don’t think I could.  It comes out May 1, 2009, which is relatively soon, when you don’t think about it too much.  I’m so ecstatic that they’re making this movie because, first of all, X3 was a huge disappointment.  I went through this phase where I decided to purchase all of Hugh Jackman’s movies on DVD (I own Kate & Leopold, Swordfish, Someone Like You, X-Men, X2, and Oklahoma!), but I really have no urge to own that film.  It doesn’t do any justice to…anything.  Ellen Page is pretty cute in it, though.  Walking through walls and big, burly men and stuff.

Anyway, this trailer better not be more exciting than the final product:

Good job with the ending.  All trailers should end with someone threatening to cut off Liev Schreiber’s head. 

I also think it’s hilarious that IMDb lists Ryan Reynolds in the cast.  Not to get all six-degrees-of-Kevin-Bacon, but Hugh Jackman was in Woody Allen’s Scoop with Woody’s much-used Scarlett Johansson who just married Ryan Reynolds who used to be involved with Alanis Morissette who played God in Dogma.  That’s enough.  I just wanted to mention Alanis because it would be the best Christmas present ever if she started writing angry songs again that are good.  And this time they would be about Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett instead of Uncle Joey and whoever’s back he was scratching his nails down.

Of course he's an asshole--his last name is French. (Mine is, too.)

  1. I bet you’re eager to see Hugh hosting the Oscars this year. I bet he’ll do a great job.

  2. Hi Madam, I’m back. I look at men a little different, well, A LOT different than you humans. That said, some of those guys don’t look like what I visualize a human female would like to snuggle up to. Woody Allen, come on! That’s like me hooking up with Icabod the Chihuahua. The Geezer said you need a man who looks like Clint Walker. I asked him who the hell Clint Walker was and he played his “Dirty Dozen” tape for me. I can see you with him! Anyway, I have the promised Christmas story posted and its a hoot. Visit me at

  3. Davis–When was that announced? I don’t think I even realized he was hosting! Thanks!
    Sandy–Don’t worry, I won’t be snuggling up to Woody Allen ever. That spot is reserved for wife/stepdaughter. Thanks for the Clint Walker tip…I’ll keep him in mind! Age never was much of a factor for me.

  4. Yea, I can’t wait for this movie to come out either. should be epic.

    Oh yea, please help my friends and I resolve our disagreements once and for all at:

    I’d really appreciate it.

  5. I watched the new trailer this morning. I freaked out seeing Gambit.

    I may have a bad ass X-Men poster in my apartment…

    Have you heard the soundtrack to “The Boy From Oz” ? His voice…mmmm

  6. YES! haha. The Boy From Oz was on Broadway when I first came to NY and I’m still a little upset that I didn’t try harder to see it.

  7. Hugh Jackman is gay. Just so you know.

  8. Well, sexual orientation was never much of a factor for me, either. So there.
