X-Men and Uni-Sex Bathrooms

Wow! All I can say is Wow! I paid $4.50 to see X-Men 3 - The Final Stand. It was really good and yet very sad. I was surprised in the way they developed the characters and how our culture has so deeply influenced the writers of this movie to make the X-Men not as heroic or nobel as when I was growing up. I am glad I did not take my 11-year old friend Jacob Hash with me as I had planned. It is more violent and darker than the other two and to be quite honest, I don't think he needs to have the junk that I did not like be "forced" upon him. After a few days have gone by and I know that most of you have gone out and spend your $10+ in America to see this movie, I will say more about it.

Another interesting experience today: UNISEX bathrooms in the movie theatre. Freak me out! I was the only one in there so it was not too bad. I am not so sure I could do my business though if a guy was in the next stall. Can we say CULTURE SHOCK!? :)

I guess you are giving the phrase "same-sex" a positive connotation...I don't know which is more weird...great to hear from you Alice...keep it coming...I'll see you in four weeks!

Try the Frankfurt airport (and others), where the male cleaning person is in there while a bunch of women are *using* the facilities! Equally weird :)

Several of us went to the 12:15 showing on Thursday night (Friday morning?) -- all the Vs but J and the Rose sibs. It was fun, but unfortunately we missed the stuff after the credits. . . I agree. Pretty dark.

And how about that Harlequin romance cover with Phoenix and Wolverine? Cracked us up! Well, me and Jen anyway :)

Here are my comments on it (no spoilers).

Unisex? What the? Kasia said that's totally not cultural for Poland. She's never seen that before. What city and theatre did you go to?

I liked X3, but not as much as the first two. I just didn't expect Professor X to turn evil and start killing off all the X-men until there were only a few left. Also, Wolverine finding out that Prof X was his father was weird! Especially when Prof X cut off his hand...I thought adamantium was nearly indestructible!

Just kidding :P
