Sure, I could write a whole essay about the characters and the plot. Earlier movies certainly left slash possibilities open - lots of room for writers to play.

But why bother when the movies does it for you? We gleefully made plans to see this movie after seeing the trailers which seemed promisingly X/Magneto slashy. Now usually that's a prelude to disappointment (I'm looking at you, Sherlock Holmes).

In this case, the slash was underhyped and overdelivered. Our ribs are sore from elbowing each other, and there was real danger of exploding from repressed squeals of joy.

Not only do we get tender bonding moments and meaningful eye contact, we get a plethora of phallic symbols throughout the movie.

Thank you Hollywood. Now if you could just make sure the next Star Trek movie includes some serious CP/ZQ fan service, my faith in humanity will be utterly restored.
