SCENE CONTAINS SPOILERS
(if you have somehow managed to avoid seeing this movie, beware)

It gives me great pleasure today to host Table9Mutant of Cinema Parrot Disco! She is sharing a favourite scene from X-Men with us, here it is! Lady, thank you for sending me something!


I had to be a part of Zoë’s awesome X-Men Blogathon because 1. I really enjoy the X-Men films and 2. Zoë is cool so I’d probably do anything she said anyway. 🙂

So I’ve chosen a favorite X-Men scene for her great Sporadic Scene series. It’s an obvious choice but, to me, it’s the ONLY choice. Because, although I like the X-Men films a lot, I LOVE Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. And their bromance is absolutely adorable and has been loads of fun to follow on Twitter. So my choice is, naturally, the final scene of X-Men (2000) in which Xavier and Magneto are playing chess in the plastic prison. Watch these two legends at work! You know they can’t stay mad at each other forever… 😉

If you have a scene that you would like featured, drop me a mail at sporadiczoe@hotmail.com with a picture/gif/video of the scene and an explanation as to why (should you want to include it).

  4. My wee brother is graduating uni next year. Guess who’s giving him his degree? It’s fuckin Patrick Stewart! It’s almost as exciting as the person who gave me my degree!

    1. table9mutant says:

      I’m more shocked that someone actually gave you a degree at all! ; )

      Unless yours was given to you by Ian McKellen, David Bowie, or Chris Hemsworth, your brother definitely wins this battle…
