I decided yesterday morning that I would go to see X2.  I’m usually not a big fan of movies based on comic book characters, and I was only marginally interested in the X-Men series.  But I saw the original X-Men movie and it was pretty good.  I’d also heard a lot of good things about X2 from various bloggers, so I was hopeful that it would at least be interesting. 

Now that I’ve seen it, I’d have to agree with them.  Overall it was very good.  In fact, I stayed in my seat despite needing to go to the restroom for the last hour because I didn’t want to miss anything (not that you particularly needed to know that smile ).  And I didn’t expect to end up feeling bad about what happened to one of the characters at the end (I won’t say more, since it would give away too much for those who haven’t seen it). 

I also saw the trailers for The Hulk and Matrix Reloaded.  I’ll probably go to the new Matrix movie, even though I was disturbed by the first one (the scene where they showed all the people in the rows and rows of little pods freaked me out).  As for The Hulk, I’m not so sure.  It was directed by Ang Lee and it appears to be very action-oriented.  I’m not sure how I feel about that.  But I still may see it, if for no other reason that it has Jennifer Connelly.  smile  And I may also want to go see The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen as well.

Lately I’ve noticed an annoying trend where theaters are showing commercials as part of the trailers.  I’ve gotten used to seeing promotions for upcoming movies, but the commercials bother me for some reason that I have yet to try to fathom.  Anyway, that Powerade commercial based on The Matrix was very annoying.
