Subj: Alexandra Shipp as Storm - thoughts?
Posted: Tue Mar 05, 2019 at 09:05:42 pm CST (Viewed 117 times)

I didn't see Apocalypse. Maybe I should have. I just stopped paying attention to the X films. They lost me.

So I didn't even realize Storm was in that movie and Alexandra Shipp played her. Did I miss something really good? Was she better than Halle Berry? (What am I saying? Of course she was. Anyone would be a better Storm than Halle Berry. Bill Murray? Better Storm than Halle Berry.)

I was googling articles and I saw this weird criticism about Shipp being too light-skinned. I mean, OK, yes, she's light-skinned. But that just seems a weird thing to focus on. Here's what I want to know: Was she badass? That, to me, is what matters. Storm is like Rodan and King Ghidora combined. Did Shipp make you believe that? Storm could destroy Tokyo single-handedly. I want to look in the actress's eyes and see the lightning and the whirlwind. Would I have been disappointed, do you think?
