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.)
