Media Consumption Log: X-Men: First Class (Movies in the Park)

Sometimes, the origin story is better for having an investment in the character, first.  I wish that some of the other franchise comic movies realized this.  I wanted Emma Frost to be more developed, as a character (really, is there any character who has appeared in so many comics and yet still seems so much a cipher in the wrong hands?).  I always fear the "Magneto as Holocaust Survivor' trope, but it worked well here.  All in all, the movie I always wanted as a comics fan.
