X-Men Confidential (Less Than Excelsior Edition)


In reviewing the new X-Men flick, opening wide tomorrow, Rober Ebert–nobody's idea of homo superior–channels Lou Dobbs re: Mexicans and proclaims "My guess is there are just plain too many mutants" while giving a thumbs up to X-Men: The Last Stand:

I enjoyed "X-Men: The Last Stand." I liked the action, I liked the absurdity, I liked the incongruous use and misuse of mutant powers, and I especially liked the way it introduces all of those political issues and lets them fight it out with the special effects

Whole bit here. And many, many more reviews here. It sounds like a dud overall, but hey, still, make mine mutant.

And given the hubbub (bub) over immigration, here's hoping that the next Spider-Man movie features The Tarantula, an acrobatic terrorist from Mexico with very, very, very pointy shoes.
