Rejoice, geeks: We have been given another good X-Men movie! Director Matthew Vaughn's prequel smartly ignores the heartbreak of Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand and whatever the fuck happened during X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In many ways, Vaughn even improves on Bryan Singer's X-Men and X2 by adding a stylish, 1960s-inspired James Bond flair to the superheroic angst. Nuanced performances from James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as BFFs (with benefits?) Professor X and Magneto keep us fascinated as a creepy Kevin Bacon tries to explode the world. It's the best summer movie of 2011 so far. (See Movie Times:
