    X-Men Origins: Wolverine


    Didn't hate it, didn't love it. It's just there. It's very boringly put together in terms of the writing and direction. But it has the kind of boringly put together aesthetic that weirdly comforts me when I sometimes don't want to be challenged or think too hard.

    Very safe and lacking in edges. Yet I was pleased with it thanks to the energy it brings to its musical sequences. Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron are really good in it. My cousin said it was okay and he would never watch it again and I said I will absolutely watch this again on FX in a year in the background when I have to do homework. The songs are fine. The direction is fine. A lot of things are just fine.

    I really liked it. The animation is well done and I enjoyed a lot of the actors doing the voice work. It doesn't have the emotional depth that I feel like a lot of Wes Anderson's other movies have but that doesn't make it any less entertaining. It was something different from him, which I appreciated. The story is very simple but it works very well for what the movie is trying to accomplish. In a way, it feels very soothing thanks to the pacing and the tone despite the very serious tone. Not my favorite of Anderson's movies but still worth seeing.
