    "I grew up reading the Tolkien books so I was really concerned about who was going to play Gandalf. Thankfully, Ian Mckellen really did a phenomenal job with the role. He was funny but also wise. Great job Sir Ian!"

    "I cry whenever I watch this movie. The scene that always gets me is the one where Gandalf and Frodo say goodbye to the rest of the Fellowship. It's always so heartbreaking to watch ;_;"

    "Watching the old movies Xmen has a certain sense of nostalgia. Ian McKellen did an awesome job really making the role of Magneto his own. I don't think I'll be able to imagine him any other way."
