Arcee: I need to do something here, if you would permit me the time, because it is the right thing to do. For months now, I had been on a high horse talking about how X-Men: First Class wouldn’t be able to live up to the hype. In all honesty, I strongly felt that was the case because after the let downs that X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine were, I felt that the franchise in the hands of Fox was really dead. I felt that way despite the fact that Matthew Vaughn was directing and that Jane Goldman, Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stenz. One would figure that seeing that team behind the film, it would raise their hopes about what to expect from the film. But I was just so burned from the last two films in the franchise… yeah, I had no real hopes that First Class would be any good.
