MOVIE: X-Men Days of Future Past
There have been a glut of superhero movies since the first X-Men film was released in 2000. 14 years since that first installment, the franchise is still going strong and remains the most consistent superhero series of them all. Thanks to X-Men production that I almost forgot the failure gave by the Amazing Spiderman-2 several weeks ago. Full packed of academy award nominees among its lead, for sure no one will say that this will be just so-so movie of 2014.

The birth of Peter Maximoff a.k.a Quicksilver is probably one of the best and catchy parts of the whole film especially when his super powers "slowed down". He is actually the son of Magneto in Marvel Comics though it wasn't mention in the film. I love the theme "Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce, lakas maka 1970's! I love the idea of old songs that you will not hear them playing on the radio anymore. in fact, I got the complete music downloaded hahah!

In summary, this film really brought us back to the world of mutants in 1973. And it is not surprising that every film of X-men franchise is going stronger, and more interesting. People will probably say that this is another J.Law film, so yes, because they know how to market their talent, so they give more exposure to JLaw while fans and audience still love her. And this factor belongs to the plus side of the movie. With 91% rotten tomatoes "certified fresh" rating for the entire film, a reason that is more than enough to watch the film on a wide screen.

It's far superior to any other superhero movie that has come out lately.

My Personal  Rating:
  • Storyline: 9.5
  • Screenplay: 9.0
  • Special Effects: 9.2
  • Average: 9.23
