I’ve always really loved this picture of Josephine Baker and Joe Louis in Paris in the 1950s. The photo caption from Bettman/Corbis read that Ms. Baker was encouraging Mr. Louis to sing with her during her opening performance at the Club Des Champs Elysees, but I’ve always wondered about the whole night: What did they talk about? Who were they with that evening? There are other photos of them together in this time frame and it’s clear that they were friends (not romantic) and probably had very interesting conversations.

I hate to be this person but…

I keep trying to like “Day of Future Past.” I keep trying to get excited about it and the joy just isn’t there. I went into this last trailer expecting to be underwhelmed, but that didn’t happen. Instead I’m just pissed.

Why is Professor Xavier just walking around punching folks in the face and shit? He’s paralyzed!

Why isn’t Beast…well, a beast?

Did they buy Qucksilver’s wig at Party City? Did they get Jennifer Lawrence’s wig at the same Party City?

There were attempts at humor that just made me sad they were so unfunny.

Poor Patrick Stewart.

The entire trailer is wall to wall dudes. Everywhere I looked, there was another dude. I’m pretty sure the only female character who had lines in the trailer was Mystique.

On a related note, I am getting so tired of Wolverine. I will literally pay Hugh Jackman money to sit the next few movies out at this point. Very little money mind you, but real currency.

I said months ago that I think I’m outgrowing the X-Men. Characters that meant so much to me as a kid don’t move me the way they used to. But I still want this movie to be less bad than it seems to be. I am prepared to eat my words come opening day. I really want to actually. But the way things are going now, I’m not getting my hopes up.
