Saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine at the early nerd special. It was pretty good, but not great, which is pretty much how I felt about the other three X-Men movies.
The big question I have is this: Do all superhero movies now have to have male frontal nudity? Sheesh. The PG-13 warning said “brief partial nudity,” but — and I’m admitting a cultural bias here — I didn’t expect male nudity.
For the big metal injection scene, Hugh Jackman is naked and when he escapes, he doesn’t bother to put clothes on (he may have been a little stressed, so I can forgive him that). You mostly just see him from behind. Then he jumps over a waterfall. Though the camera is set at an extra long shot, he’s obviously naked.
As he was free-falling, I wondered how many women would get the DVD and, during that scene, go frame-by-frame to see if they could catch a glimpse in the same manner that most of the guys I know went frame-by-frame during Sharon Stone’s Basic Instinct interrogation.
Then I remembered that women aren’t pigs like most of the guys I know.
For the record, I don’t think Dr. Manhattan has anything to worry about.
