Looks like a love of movies beat the fear of Swine Flu virus- I caught the 12:01am showing of X-Men Origins | Wolverine. I liked it, not an outstanding thriller, just good fun and a nice start to what will probably be the best movie month of the summer.

The new Transformers pre-view was WOW!!! Almost worth the cost of admission right there.

The opening sequence of Wolverine was also pretty sweet- the film makers broke a cardinal rule of movie making which is: Don’t overdo the opening credits…keep them plain and simple, otherwise you may artificially raise expectations for the rest of the movie. I would recommend seeing it on the big screen. Also, there is a very short clip after the credits, however, unless you read a lot of the comic books, it wont make any sense at all.
