X-Men Days Of Future Past – The best of yesterday and tomorrow
Little did Bryan Singer expect how the X-Men franchise would grow to be a series with a fan following on par with Star Trek and Star Wars, creating a fan base consisting of both fans of the long running comic books and the less discerning moviegoers walking in for a decent summer blockbuster. To think, this was at a time when comic book movies were still frowned upon thanks to the massive debacle of Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin. However, after the critical and commercial success of the first two instalments, Singer left to make Superman Returns and took with him one of the stars of the franchise, James Marsden. Thus, the final instalment X-Men: The Last Stand instead went into the hands of Brett Ratner, and instead of getting an epic conclusion to the trilogy adapted from the Dark Phoenix storyline, we got a largely middling finale that was a commercial success, but critically, not so much, what with random characters showing up, old characters getting killed off, and to add insult to injury, Vinnie Jones’s (in) famous line “I’m the Juggernaut…b***h” getting immortalized for all the wrong reasons (Memes) .Continue reading “X-Men Days Of Future Past Movie Review: The Best of Yesterday and Tomorrow”
Without wasting further time, let me write about the most anticipated movies of the year 2014.
Kindly note that this list is purely compiled on the basis of my personal choices and preferences.
10. 22 Jump Street : Co-Written by the multi-talented actor/writer Jonah ”Superbad, MoneyBall” Hill he teams up once again with Channing ”G.I Joe”Tatum in 22 Jump Street. 22 Jump Street is a story of 2 undercover cops who are so good at being incapable that in the 1st film they had to let go of a criminal because they couldn’t read him his rights. The film which is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) is a sequel to the hilarious 21 Jump Street. This time they are going undercover in a local college, so expect some more funny one liners and insane gags.
9. A Million Ways to Die in the West : Written & directed by an absolute mental Seth”Family Guy, Ted” MacFarlene, this film promises to push the limits of comedy which range from gross to the most creative gags. See the fight scene between Mark Wahlberg and Ted in the movie Ted to know what am talking about. A Million Ways To Die In The West tells the story of a cowardly farmer who seeks the help of a gunslinger’s wife to win back the woman who left him. It sounds serious but trust me it’s going to be madness and knowing Seth’s work it maybe something out of the box.Continue reading “10 Most Anticipated Hollywood Movies Of 2014”
