X-Men III - Cinematic Eye Candy

Who can argue with me on this one? No one, I tell you, no one, dammit!

Seriously, this is not going to be a movie that's gonna "WOW" the world with sensitive acting.
This is not a chick flick! If you want one of those, go rent one and leave the seat in the theater to me! We are talking mega-hot people in leather for heaven sake. Throw in some awesome visual effects and great action/fight scenes, and that's what X-Men III - The Last Stand will give us.

Just click on the name to get the promo photo. I would have put the photos on the post: however, that would have made for one huge post. Not only that, all those photos in one itty-bitty space would definitely send someone into sugar shock.

First, you have James "Cyclops" Marsden. He is MY man (the character, not the actor). I have loved this man since the original X-Men movie. And his Oakley X-Metal "Penny" style glasses with type A+ ruby iridium lenses only make him look sexier.

Then we have Hugh "Wolverine" Jackman. I can live without his pointy-hair boss like hairdo and his overgrown facial hair. But I'll take the rest of him anytime, anyday. If you want to see him in all his good looking glory, rent "Kate and Leopold".

Then there is Halle "Storm" Berry. Nothing says "sexy" better than her body in either a leather-clad suit or spandex. Heck, she could wear a friggin burlap sack an make it look like something that would go for $2,500 on Rodeo Drive. Halle was ranked #15 in Stuff Magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World" [2002].

For those of a more mature taste, you have Patrick "Prof Xavier" Stewart. For an older guy, he definitely has some serious mojo going there. Him and Sean Connery. Purrrr.

Though she is one scary looking freak in her make-up, take it all off, and you have Rebecca "Mystique" Romijn. No words needed for this hottie. When she walks, she leaves a sizzling footprint behind her. She was ranked #82 in Stuff Magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World" [2002]. And as for her last name, as quoted by her, "it's pronounced Romaine, like the lettuce".

For the true Marvel fan, you knew Dr. Jean "Marvel Girl" Grey would be back. Thank goodness for Famke "Phoenix" Janssen's sake. The women's measurements are 36-24-36. Nice combo! Just for the record, she was ranked #69 (nice number) in Stuff Magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World" [2002].

One hottie that will be playing a bigger role in III than he did in II is Daniel "Colossus" Cudmore. Something about a guy being able to change his body into metal sends a bizarre chill up and down my spine.

For you Tony, my sweet, I will now talk about Ben "Angel" Foster. This guy is nibble-icious. I can't help but stare at the scene in the film's trailer where Angel spreads those huge white wings. It makes me wish I was a feather.

For those of you who like your men big, bald, and bad-ass, then you should have no prob falling for Vinnie "Juggernaut" Jones. Though he's not MY type, I'm sure there are those out there that have a thing for those hard-type football (soccer to us Yanks) players.

I would like to take note on Sir Ian "Magneto" McKellan. Though not exactly "eye candy", he does have that certain "je ne sais quoi" about him. In much the same manner that I will always refer to Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, I will always see Ian as Magneto.

Aaron "Pyro" Stanford. I love his promo photo for X3. How he's looking back with that "I'm gonna light your ass up" stare. Ooooo, is it getting hot in here. Off the stage, he's got that whole unshaven grungy look going for him. Just looking at him reminds me of that Doors' song .... what is it again ... oh yeah, "Light My Fire".

Not that this guy is eye candy, but what a make-up job! Hands down, Kelsey "The Beast" Grammer was the best pick for the role. Though I don't know how well Dr. Frasier Crane will do in fight scenes, Kelsey definitely has the perfect voice to play Dr. Hank McCoy.

Of course, we do have the students that play an even larger role in III. There is the likes of Ellen "Kitty Pride" Page, Anna "Rogue" Paquin, Shawn "Iceman" Ashmore, and Dania "Callisto" Ramirez. Definitely a great way to round out such a knock-out gorgeous cast. I always thought Shawn and Anna were two cuties in the making. As for Dania and Ellen, too young for me to make an "eye candy" comment. Let's just say these two young actresses look like they are well on their way to being the next wave of Hollywood hotties.

Cinematic eye candy, folks!

Interestingly enough, I got "Kate and Leopold" from Netflix TODAY.

Hugh Jackman is featured prominently in my Nail Bag. (So is Karl Urban. Oh, and SImon Baker. I loves me some Australian/New Zealanders.)

Sean Connery!

And I was so close. You know I had to seek therapy for my Connery addiction. Now I have fallen off the wagon! He is so super fine! And that voice! Maidink--see what you've done!

And I was so over him (Billy Zane had taken his place) but now....

*googles Sean Connery pics.*

We went to see Mission Impossble 3 the other night (I exoected it to be shite, but it was actually very good) and we saw the trailer for X-Men.

I've seen the first one, but not the second, although this one looks as if it might be spectacularly good.

I'm gonna see it, but no opening weekend. No crowded theater for me!
