valmora: "we three" witches, meeting again (Default)
[personal profile] valmora
I love Charles/Erik/Charles enough, and the movie panders to me enough, that anything not including that [homoerotic] relationship in some capacity is essentially not worth reading for me.

Notes: No particular order. No guarantees of worksafeness unless I say so explicitly. Angst is to be expected.

Everything is Charles/Erik/Charles

Can 2 men just respect each other while disagreeing without it being subtext?

Yes. I even agree that men can have very close, very intimate (in a nonsexual sense) friendships. And maybe that's what you'll get out of it when you see the movie. I didn't. (Even James McAvoy (Xavier) referred to the movie as a romance.)

By the way, you commented on the other icon, but the above is Magneto as seen in X-Men 2.

Anyhow I guess I misunderstood your comment about Charles and Eric as meaning "in general" not necessarily "as depicted in this film". If you mean "as depicted in this film" then I cannot disagree with you. I do not think that's an accurate depiction of their relationship as it has been told in the comics or in any other media but heck they were even laying in bed together at one point, so i can't really say anything.

Then again I loathed the movie but that's for reasons completely other than that.

I know. I did see it. But it was thematically appropriate, so I felt no need to comment on it. (Although, seriously, McKellen!Magneto = ♥)

as it has been told in the comics or in any other media
No, I'm not familiar with any canon other than the movies (X1-X3, XMFC). If I had had intimate knowledge of the comic canon walking into XMFC, as you do, then I probably would have seen it as deliberate homoeroticisation of the characters, intended as fanservice. And that would have upset me.

As it is, however, I can't say that the pandering homoerotic fanservice didn't please me.

as it has been told in the comics or in any other media
At this point I'm pretty much just like, "You know what? Nothing is interlinked canon. The X# movies are their own separate canon, of which X3 might not even count; XMFC is its own separate canon that isn't compliant with the X movies....etc" I'm trying to enjoy things for what they are.

loathed the movie but that's for reasons completely other than that.
Care to share? (I assume it isn't the race issues.)
