X-Men: First Class

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Call it Muppet Babies for the ComiCon set: X-Men: First Class goes back in time to tell the tale of how Professor X, Mystique, Magneto and the rest of the Marvel mutant supergroup met cute, grew up and became heroes … and villains. For the fifth movie in its franchise, this prequel feels surprisingly fresh—mostly thanks to the dynamic young cast, headed up by James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender.

Dancers and Detectives

Strip clubs and topless revues in Las Vegas are like coffee shops in Seattle—there are multitudes of them and they all offer the same thing. This begs the question: Do we really need another T&A show? $trip The Play—which touts pasties, booty shorts and pole dancing with a murder mystery storyline—is banking on an affirmative. Unlike the other topless shows and boobie bars, this $25 play offers a sexy strip club vibe, while playfully mocking the stereotypical drama and sleaziness.
