That's three votes for Kavalier and Clay.

I did want to talk about Magneto being explicitly Jewish in the movie. I thought he was not in the comics - that his ethnicity was unstated for a long time and then when it was stated he was Romani. Is that wrong?

I was actually just about to drop in and post a link to this page, which has various meta pieces about Magneto including some discussion of the canon evidence for him being Jewish. (Only current up 1998, sadly, but very well-referenced.)
