Green

X2

Finally got to see X-Men Reloaded or whatever the X-Sequel was called. :-) (Just kidding. Matrix sequel next.) I think they did a fantastic job, and may even have surpassed the original. Without the need for exposition in the way, they told a very coherent story with some fun characters, old and new.

It also occurred to me midway through the film that there are some alarmingly attractive actors in their little ensemble, both men and women. Hugh Jackman's scruffiness is a really amusing contrast to everyone else's perfect smoothness. (OK, with the possible exception of the bumpy naked blue chick. But she has her own endearing qualities.)
