YMMV / Starter for 10

  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Nine years after the release of this movie, Charles Dance portrays James McAvoy's father in Victor Frankenstein. Considering that Brian Jackson has accidentally seen Michael Harbinson stark naked, it's quite understandable that the elder Frankenstein is resentful towards his son.
    • Also in Victor Frankenstein, Mark Gatiss is an engineer who reluctantly works with Victor, and his distaste for the student probably stems from knowing that Brian is a cheater.
    • James McAvoy once again plays a naïve, '80s-era, mullet-haired academic who is head-over-heels for a beautiful woman in X-Men: Apocalypse. This Tumblr post pokes fun at the strong resemblance between Brian Jackson and Professor X.
