Three sentence movie reviews: X-Men: Days of Future Past
A fan of X-Men movies in general,* I thought this was phenomenal, easily the best of the bunch. While acting was good all around, I particularly found James McAvoy outstanding as the weepy, confused and mostly lost Charles Xavier. The future/past setting worked for me and the only thing I was sorry about was the early exit of Evan Peters, who stole his scenes from much more experienced actors and also provided the cinema with the best use of a Jim Croce song in decades.
Where watched: St. Johns Twin Cinema with Matt**
*I even suffered through that Wolverine Origin movie, which is more than I can say for the other resident of the house.
**A.k.a. the guy who isn’t enough of a fan to watch the Wolverine Origin movie.
We have not seen this yet. As I have remarked many times recently, it seems, we are less on going to movies as of the past year or two. Wonder why that has happened?
*I rather like your asterisks in this post!
Haha, poor Matt. The Wolverine origin movie was pretty bad. I don't blame him for not wanting to watch it. I'm still sore about Taylor Kitsch as Gambit. Did you hear that Channing Tatum has been tapped to play Gambit in the next one?
I still haven't seen this and have been reluctant to do so. I don't much care for time travel stories. I really loved the first one though, so I'll probably see it eventually.
