Pop Culture Happy Hour: ‘X-Men,’ Dark Fiction, And Trailer Madness

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.
June 10, 2011

This week, we welcome back Glen Weldon from his vacation, complete with his vacation beard and his vacation stories of being menaced by a very dangerous snake.

The summer of superhero movies continues as it turns out we all managed to see X-Men: First Class on its first weekend, and we’ve got thoughts about Fassbender, McAvoy, super-red lips and limitless violence.

That leads to a discussion of the very odd collection of trailers we saw before the film, including tales of robot fighting and angry, angry primates.

Then we take a brief detour into the super-hot topic of “dark” YA fiction and whether it will lead your teenager to despair, followed by the ever-popular topic of what is making us happy this week.

As always you can follow us on Twitter: me, Trey, Stephen, Glen and Mike. Or, of course, find us on Facebook. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
