X-Men: Days of Future Past Movie Review

With the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past on Blu-ray and DVD this week, it was almost guaranteed that it would draw the attention of the crew at Screen Junkies for their ongoing hilarious Honest Trailers series. Sure enough, the X-Men movie gets skewered like Wolvie skewers the bad guys (for the seventh freaking time in the X-Men universe…seriously).

The Honest Trailer also points out the fact that Days of Future Past pretty much plays out like the plot of a certain Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle from the “future past” (Terminator 2). And while it might seem a little heavy-handed they did give props to what really stole the entire film, which was Quicksilver’s “Time in a Bottle” scene.

Check out the hilarity below.

Marvel vs DC

When it comes to building cohesive “shared” comic book universes on the big screen, there can be only one. Very likely, it will always be Marvel Studios. They got there first, taking a gaggle of second-tier superhero characters whose movie rights they battled and bribed to reattain and turning them into a veritable mint that breathes, eats, and craps out lackluster imitators. Phase One had its share of troubling moments: Iron Man 2 had vast amounts of potential, but Marvel’s shaky long-term strategy and its sudden rush to get the sequel in front of the cameras — even if it meant starting without a completed script — resulted in what could have been a superior franchise installment devolving into an uninspired bit of wheel spinning.

The first Thor felt too earthbound and the side business with S.H.I.E.L.D. was obviously shoehorned into a narrative that would have worked much better without it. The studio took a major gamble with their first four movies and when The Avengers premiered in May of last year it paid off handsomely in ways few could have ever thought possible. The success of that film paved the way in grand fashion for Phase Two to take Marvel’s blockbuster bullpen of celluloid superheroes into bold and creatively rewarding territory and allow for characters like Ant-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy to get their own big-budget movie adventures coming our way sooner than we think.
