The Friday Flicks: “Wolverine” and “Girlfriends”

The summer movie season kicked into full gear last weekend with two big movies opening. One just for the ladies, the other… not so much.
.
First there was the shirtless wonder Matthew McConaughey as the notorious bachelor Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Co-starring Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas and Breckin Meyer, this romantic comedy is about a guy who can’t commit (so original) until he has a Christmas Carol-esque experience. It is SUPPOSED to be good (I hate to admit it but I tend to like dumb romantic comedies like this… I have no idea why) and worse case scenario you ladies get to see Matthew on the big screen for two hours. I hear you all love him.

Peep the trailer below:

Now, on to the real movie we all wanted to see. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the latest in the Marvel flick franchise. As the title obviously states, the film is an origins story of everyone’s favorite ill-tempered mutant and stars as Hugh Jackman as the titular character. The film also stars Liev Schreiber, will.i.am (yes, that will.i.am) and Ryan Reynolds. And despite the film leaking online a few weeks ago, word is there are two “easter egg” endings (those scenes that occur after the credits) that will keep the butts in seats. Peep the trailer here:

I will see you at the box office. And if you saw me coming out of Obsessed, please don’t judge.
