Just watched a 7-minute preview of X-Men 3. The link is here for those who haven't watched it yet. X3 appears to be quite interesting, and is one of the few movies I'm looking forward to watching this term break.
One of the most intriguing lines from the preview was spoken by Beast, "Is it cowardice to save oneself from persecution?". An extremely interesting question. In this light, it makes the film more than just a simple "Let's Fight !!! Killz !!!" type of blockbuster movie.
I've always liked movies that had some deeper layer to it, while maintaining an entertaining exterior. For example, the Matrix trilogy. We could enjoy the action scenes, while appreciating the deeper philosophies behind it after the movie. Of course, it also allows us to deny our bloodlust by saying "It's not an action movie! It's a cerebral philosophical film!".
Cerebral philosophical films disguised as action movies are definitely better than Zombie movies. I wonder what kind of twit likes Zombie films. Hmm...
