Remember Your First Love?

Remember Your First Love?

I didn’t know at the time how little I was, how fresh-faced and innocent.  Eighteen was a grown up, I was ready for college in a new state.  I, who had never been kissed, never gone on a date, and never lived away from my parents and little brother.  I was confident I would make a success of it. I was so ready to make new friends and get started on life that I hardly noticed when my dad reluctantly drove away and left me hundreds of miles from home.

It’s a tight story, that shows believable ways that the characters would have met, and it continues to grapple with the fascinating philosophical issues all the X-men movies have.  It’s a long movie, and I’m glad that they let it be as long as it needed to be.  Stories have natural lengths and I think Thor could have benefited from the attitude of letting it be the length it naturally wants to be.
