Wolverine movie

X-Men Origins: Wolverine vs. my expectations:

Hugh Jackman drool expectations: Exceeded

Pointy object fu and things blowing up expectations: Met

Plot making enough sense while the movie lasted expectations: Exceeded (but my expectations were pretty low)

Plot elements not making sense five minutes after the movie was over expectations: Met

Racism & sexism expectations: Pretty much as expected

Totally gratuitous use of a fat suit: Unexpected. Ewwwwwww.

The OH has read the Wolverine origin stories and said they changed a bunch of things in ways he didn't like. I haven't read all the Wolverine origin stories and there was only one thing I knew they had changed.

Credits and post-credits easter egg expectations: Exceeded
