Went to see a preview of Wolverine tonight; it opens tomorrow. The movie is probably around one hour and forty-five minutes long, but it feels like half that. With a ton of action, the movie flies by. Jackman is obviously great as is Liev Schrieber as Victor Creed (later to be Sabretooth). The dialogue isn't the best, but the amount of action makes that fairly meaningless. The big star of the movie is the final battle, which is a doozy, to say the least. It is very reminiscent of -- and worthy of comparison to -- the final Darth Maul battle in Episode I. Wolverine is much more like the first two X-Men films than the third and it's definitely worth seeing this weekend. I hate to spoil it, but nobody does this in the film.

After the movie, we went to a bar and got there just in time for the end of regulation in Celtics-Bulls Game 6 and the subsequent three OTs. Game 7 on Saturday. Must-see TV.
