    Default REVIEW: "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Gives "Avengers" a Run for Its Money

    Fox's mutant sequel goes full "Terminator 2," as Wolverine goes back in time to deliver one of Bryan Singer's -- and the franchise's -- best films.

    Have you watched Avengers recently? That movie is still the best superhero movie. Ever.

    No Cyclops, no interest.

    Well, this is certainly exciting. If DoFP can beat the Avengers as the best superhero movie of all time, that will be a huge upset in the geek community.

    I'm seeing this tomorrow, followed by quite possibly my last theatrical screening of CATWS...

    I hope X-Men is good that's all I want.

    Considering how low the bar has been set for X-men movies, I'm not surprised by this review. It's getting the same marks as X-men First Class got on Rotten Tomatoes. But if Man of Steel has taught me anything, it's that the Tomatometer is painfully fallible. It seems all this movie did is give Singer a chance to save face after ditching the X-men movies and letting it get so badly screwed up. Now he's basically starting from scratch, undoing everything he messed up in the first place. And so long as he's still involved, it'll continue to be messed up because the man is incapable of doing an X-men movie that doesn't turn into a Wolverine love fest. It's really sad.

    The author of this article, in case some of you don't know, is Phil Pirrello, co-host of the Transporter Room 3 podcast. It's an entertaining Star Trek podcast that is produced WAY too infrequently and could only benefit from a greater dedication of time and production values.

    Which brings me to my next point: Phil, if you're reading this, stop watching and reviewing movies and get working on Transporter Room 3 episodes! You and Collura need to do three or four at a time, edit them at your leisure, and then release them!

    As for the review, I'm glad to hear this movie is better than the X-Men outings since X-Men 2. That said, I'm at the point where I couldn't care less about the X-Men films at this point. I would have much preferred that "First Class" would have been a full reboot of the aging franchise, based on the assemblage of the actual first class of X-Men: Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel, and Beast. That team has always had a special place in my heart, though from their time as X-Factor instead of the original X-Men.

    I'll go see Days of Future Past, but I'm not too excited for it. I'm more excited about my second viewing of Godzilla, which I really enjoyed. Same goes for ASM2, which has the makings of a far better movie if a lot of the fat is trimmed away.

    Nice review. I agree with most of it... but I think Jennifer Lawrence did another very good acting job as Mystique.

    Having just seen the film, I may not be emotionally distanced enough to give a fair and reasoned analysis or review. I will say, however, that I thoroughly enjoyed DoFP. Of course, I also got to see spoilers:
    Jean Grey and Cyclops alive and well
    end of spoilers. That alone was worth the price of admission. I can't wait for X-Men: Apocalypse!
    Why? Just to see the disappointment on your corn-fed, gee-whiz face, Superman. And because a great dark voice on the edge of nothing spoke to me and said you all had to die. There is no 'Why?'

    I would love to see an X-Factor movie, if it was based on Peter David's X-Factor. They could easily do this since they have already introduced Havok and Quicksilver. DOTFP will hopefully reboot Multiple Man. Add in some Wolfsbane, Strong Guy, Polaris and we have ourselves a hit movie.

    What he said.

    I have no interest in an X-MEN without Scott Summers. Guess we're in total agreement here, Kurosawa.

    Avengers? What about Winter Soldier? That was the last great comic book movie and better than the Avengers imo
    Marvel: Amazing Spider-Man, Magneto, Hawkeye, Daredevil
    DC: Batman, Batman External, Justice League, Superman, Grayson

    Sounds like a decent film meeting incredibly low expectations. Singer still won't touch the costumes with a ten foot pole. Seriously, what the heck is that armored nonsense everyone's wearing in the future? Still got Mystique running around with no clothes on. The Mark 1 Sentinels look like giant humanoid air conditioners and even worse, have tons of exposed wiring. I could take those things out with a big kitchen knife and I'm supposed to believe Wolverine and Magneto can't curb stomp those things? Pfft.
