After picking up Gene from the airport yesterday, we went on a walk in the neighborhood and then hung around a bit until going to watch Logan, the new “X-men” movie. It was an interesting movie because of three factors:
- Charles Xavier as an old man: he was old before but now he’s even older. Who knew he could get sick or look so frail?
- Laura, the little girl and main focus of the movie. Her powers are awesome, her story is awesome, she is awesome.
- The current state of the world in the movie. No spoilers.
I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t say much more, but I imagine anyone familiar with the X-men movies can guess what happens if given some time to think.
What also stood out to me was all of the blood and violence. It’s an R rated movie, something I wasn’t aware of going in, so there is a lot of blood and guts. It was too much for me but I can understand the need for it and it didn’t turn me away from the story.
After the movie we went to Taco Bell for dinner where I got a fancy crunchwrap. As I told the gang while we were discussing what to order,”you only live once!”, so I had to try it. It was fine but it ended up being too much. I shouldn’t have eaten it all but I did. Live and learn.
