Free Comicbook Day, Wolverine and A New Personal Best!
I just saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine a few hour ago and one word could sum it all: AWESOME! Everything was great! The storytelling, the effects, gee! I’m just disappointed that the movie had a “One Screening Only” Policy… I wanted to watch it again!
The movie ran for about an hour and forty-five minutes and they really used it well.They didn’t rush the scenes, and made sure that it was played like a biography of an indestructible fighting machine.
SPOILER ALERT: The Squad Wolverine was in was so cool! Agent Zero (sharpshooter) , Wraith/ Spectre (Will.I.Am!!) , The Blob (didn’t know he was thin before! LOL!), Deadpool (without the mask), Sabretooth, and the guy who can turn stuff on and off! (Didn’t catch his name, he died in the movie anyway….)
Though some scenes were annoying, (no, I won’t mention which ones) and it was nice that the movie had a few laughs in it.
SPOILER ALERT: The Blob was strangely “sensitive” about his weight that when Logan called him “Bub”, he punched him, sending him across the room, thinking that he was called “Blob.”
Watch it! Non-fans of the whole comic book to movies genre would certainly love the way the movie was handled. It won’t leave you guessing what’s happening on-screen with this flick…
And hey! It’s the first Monday of May tomorrow and you know what that means? No? Well, it’s Free Comic book Day!
Free Comic Book Day is a single day – the first Saturday in May – when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. *Check with your local shop for their participation and rules.

In my cubing progress news, I timed myself two nights ago and was pleasantly surprised by the result. Here are the times I got:
20.87 ->Newest PB! (Personal Best)
23.17 Average of Six; 23.27 Average of Four (Excluding Slowest and Fastest Time)
I used my old Type D DIY I featured here, a few months ago. The only difference was that I already replaced it with an Old Type A core and it so, so much better than before.
