X-Men: Days of Future Past

Posted at June 08, 2014

Decent movie. There were bits that were inspired, like the slow-motion battle sequence. The future stuff didn’t really add much, and a lot of it was just a retread of the previous X-Men movie.

But young Charles Xavier, Magento, and Mystique really do have chemistry.

And Wolverine? I guess they can’t resist throwing him in, even though he has little to do with the story.


nfg: It was filmed in Montreal? No wonder it lacked the charm of previous X-Men movies.

There’s stuff set in DC that doesn’t really look like DC, but otherwise there was nothing notable.

Marc: Can you tell that it was filmed in Montreal? That’s the important question.
