Clash of the versus movies by Stuart Heritage
(from Film Blog at
by the time that Dinosaurs v Aliens rolls around, we'll have been hit over the head with such an extraordinary number of similar movies that we won't care whether the dinosaurs or the aliens win. Mark my words, soon we'll all be suffering from versus fatigue.

Already in the pipeline are films such as Strippers v Werewolves, Gladiators v Werewolves, Aliens v Ninjas, Boy Scouts v Zombies, Humans v Zombies, Aliens v Avatars, Cockneys v Zombies and Michael Bay's Zombies v Robots. Add this to the teetering stack of versus movies made by The Asylum (including Alien v Hunter, Mega Shark v Giant Octopus and Mega Shark v Crocosaurus) and you would be forgiven for despairing at the film industry's staggering lack of imagination.
But why do so many of them feature zombies?! Are they the new vampires? Can we expect a Twilight-y human-zombie teen romance soon?

He also teased a follow-up to the movie that could open with the assassination of John F.Kennedy, who has been shot with a "magic bullet controlled by Magneto".
Ooh, good idea!

X-Men: First Class Reviews from
Digital Spy by Ben Rawson-Jones
Empire by Dan Jolin
Total Film by Rosie Fletcher
Consensus so far (based also on other comments I've read scattered about) is that it's excellent, perhaps the best X-Men film yet. Super.
