Last night I finally convinced my husband to watch The Wolverine. All of you who are in or have been in a relationship, probably feel me on this. We would spend hours scrolling through Netflix and HBOGo, and every time for at least 2 and 1/5 months now I have casually suggest The Wolverine. It’s not that I am a huge fan of X-Men per say, but of all the X-Men I have always found Wolverine most endearing. He is kinda fuzzy like a pet, a little gruff, but fiercely loyal and protective, add in some cool graphics and exciting action packed scenes, what’s not to like….. Well it turns out just about everything. Too long, nonsensical (I get it’s based on a comic, but my disbelief can only suspend so far). For example within the first 10 minutes Wolverine is essentially annihilated by the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, while trying to save a man who imprisoned him. Yes that is full of holes, and not even the point I was getting too. He is burned unrecognizably, but of course this is okay because he can regenerate…. Everything… Including his hair? How? Why? The point is this: The price was too high, and the cost was too great as my voting privileges have been suspended until further notice. Please do not make the same mistake I did. In my house, my vote for The Wolverine was the equivalent to days on end of watching Doomsday Preppers. Consider yourself warned my friends.
If you have never seen this Amy Schumer comedy sketch, it is a highly accurate and hilarious example of couples picking out what to watch.
