First things first: Crying Erik.Crying Erik.
What else there was:
Asshole!Charles butting in in people's mind and memories without asking. Btw, I know your pain, horrible what you experienced. But you gotta stay, yeah, Imma gonna make you cuz I just saved your ass. We BBF from now on, RIGHT?
Chubby teen Mystique with no abilities except talking shit and looking for looooove.
Only black guy who is actually also the only interesting character: killed off. Thank you. NOT.
Villain with no real motives, hello Kevin Bacon, and a stupid helmet that likens his nose to that of a pig. I ain't f'king kidding.
That woman with tits and blond hair.
This other woman with tits but no mutation.
Also Mystique showing tits. Did I mention she popped out of nowhere, the hell did she come from?? Didn't Charles' parents have anything to say on the matter of her staying?
Ron Weasley as flying Mothman.
WTF Soviet Russia bombs YOU.
That guy who controlled... tornadoes, but couldn't apparently talk. He was just there.
Also russian Niet!Azazel, uuuh. Say "niet" again!
Erik and his coin. Crying. Multiple times. Omg, that scene with his mom and the menorah, so special, so touching.
Background music, IT NEVER STOPPED ARGH
Charles reaching for his temple with two fingers is going to be a secret code of idiocy from now on. Or maybe not so secret. Concentrate HARDER. Or yell, depends. Maybe Erik will hear you somehow
despite the helmet, uh huh.
Fireflygirl has no reason to join or not to join one side or the other. She's just there and looks shitty.
Erik crying. One more time, c'mon.
I kinda expected Emma Frost to get out the dildo when he said Charles had left a hole in him and he hoped Emma could fill it. That was like... the only time I laughed at the most inappropriate moment (usually I was forcing my mouth shut with my hand or just shaking my head). Alright, ok, when Erik mentioned it was ok for Moriah to come closer while Charles lay in his lap, CRYING, that was pretty funny too.
All in all, Charles and Erik were pretty gay (have been for the entire movie for no apparent reason. SOOOO TIGHT) Maybe it must have been all those deep intense and honest conversations over their two chess games or what have you. T_T It is obvious that the movie was meant to be about Magneto's origins, for all the revenge-hunt down-kill storyline. But it was for nought, since there were simply too many characters, probably to lure more viewers to the theatre. Idk. XMen First Class could have been so much more than it actually was. I srsly missed the depth. The actors were never given the chance to really show their talent with the crappy script. Even a teenager could have written better dialogues.
The thing I will do now is pretend X-Men: First Class never happened. Like X3 never happened. It's all a bad dream, lalala.
At least I still have you, Thor-movie. You are one pretty, shiny movie with Shakespearean ambitions, upholding the ideal of 'showing not telling' and trying to find sense in your character's doings. And your actors are adorkable. Yeahhhhh.
This is all I need ♥I don't know how to incorporate audio files so here's the original source, listen to this!!
