Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

X-Men: First Class (2011)

Erik: What brings you to Argentina?
1st German: The climate. I'm a pig farmer.
2nd German: Tailor, since I was a boy.
My father made the best suits in Dusseldorf.
Erik: My parents came from Dusseldorf.
1st German: What was their name?
Erik: They didn't have a name. It was taken 
from them, by pig farmers and tailors.

Matthew Vaughn's soft reboot of the X-Men movies premiered in NYC on this day 10 years ago and let me tell you that everything involving Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy remains golden. 

A lot of the other stuff maybe doesn't work, looking back now -- Jennifer Lawrence seemed incredibly uncomfortable the entire time and never found Mystique's groove, leaving us longing for Rebecca Romijn in a World Class First -- but Fassy & Jimmy made this entire run of movies worth their weight in millions. Especially when you add in all of their press flirtations...

Fassy free-balling in grey sweatpants made that movie for me.
