*** MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR SUPER 8 & X-MEN FIRST CLASS***
I've been so busy the past.. forever that I've fallen behind on summer movies so today I was determined to go to the movies and see at least two if not three movies. On my list of "must" see are Pirates 4, Kung Fu Panda 2, X-Men First Class, Super 8 and Green Lantern. So I checked the movies time and it looked like I'd be able to see Super 8, then X-Men First Class and if I was up to it Pirates 4.
So I went to lunch at a near fast food place and then headed over to the theater. Up first was Super 8. I've heard such good things about this film and from the previews I was very excited to see. I had heard that it's a through back to the 80's films like E.T. and Goonies, both of which I LOVED.
After Super 8 I had about a minute to go to the bathroom, get a drink and some popcorn and get into the theater. Luckily they play five or six previews before the movie so I knew I had about ten minutes. So I got my snacks and then made my way into the theater. Soon as I sat down my full popcorn took a tumble to the floor and I lost all but a few kernels of popcorn.. I was not a happy camper.
After seeing Super 8 and then X-Men First Class I couldn't bring myself to watch Pirates. I was on such a high from X-Men that I didn't want to watch Pirates and be disappointed. I've heard good and bad things about Pirates 4, besides I was hungry and knew I had things to do at home. Seeing two movies was great, just have to make sure I do a few more double features in the future.
So I'd give Super 8 a solid B and X-Men First Class an A Both were fantastic and made for a great double feature.
