X-men 3 is quite possibly one of the coolest movies ever. The script writers continue to diverge from the comic book plots, while keeping just a thread of the same story tied throughout. The special effects were absolutely awesome. The only thing I noticed that was a bit funny was a spider crawling on Logan’s shoulder when he was in front of the tombstone. I wonder if they will edit that out for the DVD version, since it is somewhat distracting for the scene. I won’t say any more, because I don’t want to ruin it, but if you like the comic books, the first two movies, or just action/awesome movies in general, you should definitely check it out.
The movie ended late last night, so I took advantage of the empty gas station (it was consensual) and headed back. On the way back, I found a song forcing itself to form in my head. If I had remembered the pen and paper I keep in my glove box, I surely would have stopped in the middle of the street to write the lyrics. As soon as I stepped into the house, I threw off my shoes, dropped my leather jacket on the floor, and began writing Graduation.
There are times when inspiration hits you so hard you almost completely lose touch with reality. I think those are the moments for which artists live.
