X-MEN: FIRST CLASS TheUltimate Blu-ray and DVD Experience Arrived on First Class Friday, September 9th

Summary: Before they were superheroes, the fate of humanity depended on an extraordinary group of youngsters who went on to become X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.  Based on the international bestselling Marvel Comics franchise, this box office hit bursts onto Blu-ray and DVD Friday, September 9 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

My Thoughts: I was so excited to see this DVD since we never saw this movie at the theatre. My son and I stayed up late to watch it the other night. X-MEN First Class was so good we watched it again the next day. X-Men: First Class unveils the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. The cast is loaded from top to bottom with a great group of actors even if I had not heard of many of them. After two hours of solid fun I was ready for more. If any movie deserves sequels it is this one. Easily in the top two of all the X-Men films. I am a full on X-Men fan. I do like the characters though and they did a wonderful job of bringing this group to the screen.

I have one copy of X-Men: First Class 1 Blu-rayfor a contest prize.
