With the DVD/Blu Ray release of X-Men First Class last week, I rushed to Best Buy over the weekend to complete my collection. I saw the movie in theaters back in June and am already having trouble remembering it. The one I think I do remember is thinking to myself at the time that I need to re-watch all of the previous movies before I see it again. I never did make it back to the theater, and summer just seemed to slip away from me making me forget about the series altogether. Now that I have the new movie, I'm finding myself itching to watch it again!
Does this ever happen to you? You get the newest saga in a series and instead of paying it its proper and deserved dues, you lack the patience to go back to the beginning and instead skip right to the new movie only to be reminded of why you had wanted to re-watch the previous ones to begin with... By the time the final Harry Potter movie came out, I had decided to work backwards through the collection. I only made it through The Deathly Hallows: Part I, The Half-Blood Prince and The Order of the Phoenix, but to go back seven movies spanning ten years... I just didn't have that kind of time. One day.
Come to think of it, with all of our themed promo giveaways, I'm actually surprised to see that Motivators does not have some TV or movie promotional product themes like Harry Potter or a classic like Star Wars (although we do have a space themed items). Food for thought?
Anyway, the X-Men collection is much smaller and shorter than the Harry Potter collection, so there really is no excuse for my impatience. Though the movie was a slight disappointment, it was still great to see the connections that the characters had way back when. I would hate to spoil anything for anyone who has yet to see it. so all I will say is: see for yourself!
