STORMING FOR ADAMANTIUM


Welcome back fellow sci-fi fans!

This week, I want to continue with my Storming The Castle Movie Scenes.

Number Six on the list is a scene which my husband and I have replayed copiously. This is the scene, that made me want to buy the movie right while we were still watching it in the movie theater.

The movie of which I speak is another of my favorite comic book characters. Simply because this dude is a straight up bad-ass. You wouldn’t want to cross him, meet him in a dark alley or hurt someone he cares about. If you’re smart, you do all you can to keep in his good graces. If not, well…I’ll sing at your funeral.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a fun movie. Hugh Jackman showed us that not only is Wolverine good at beating the mess out of people; he also has a soul and a heart. Wolverine was a devoted son, a loyal soldier, a lover, protector and avenger in this movie. All while fighting his inner demons.

But I’m getting ahead of the movie. The specific scene I’m talking about is one which everyone I know who has seen this movie loves. We all cheer and replay this scene until we get sick of it (which actually hasn’t happened yet).

Wolverine and his half-brother Victor Creed (portrayed by Liev Schreiber) have joined a group of meta-humans under the command of a man known as Stryker (portrayed by Danny Huston).  After arriving in Lagos, Nigeria, these men show the diamond broker and his crew who’s the boss.

Granted, many of us believe that this movie could have been better and longer for various reasons. However, this scene brings the movie’s worth up considerably for me.

“Fred?”

“The tank?”

“The tank.”

“Yeah, I got that.”

Just watch this video. It shows why I love this scene!

(I apologize in advance for the quality of this video; however, it’s the best I could come up with)

If you created a Storming the Castle list, would this scene be on it? Which scenes would you include? Leave a comment and let me know. I’d love to know what movie scenes you’d include.

I want to take a moment to thank all of my readers who have purchased a copy of my just released poetry collection, Freedom: Poetry From A Life. If you haven’t purchased your copy yet, feel free to do so at either CreateSpace.Com or Amazon.Com.

And yes, I have a few sci-fi projects coming soon. I will keep everyone posted once I am closer to publication.

Join me next week, when I continue my STCMS list with a scene from the movie that began my love affair with science fiction: “Star Wars IV: A New Hope
