'Days of Future Past' is Wicked Entertaining and Morally Complex

'Days of Future Past' is Wicked Entertaining and Morally Complex
In Bryan Singer’s sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, the emotional stakes are much higher than in his previous films X-Men and X-Men 2. That’s because mutants aren’t just ostracized for being different, they’re attacked as an entire species. Days of Future Past is more engaging due to the morally complex evolutionary battle that mankind wages against mutants in its attempt to defy Darwinism by any means necessary.

Humanity’s extreme measures involve deadly robots called sentinels designed to exterminate mutants. In the movie’s opening, we see a war torn future where the sentinels have kill...

'X-Men Days Of Future Past' Does Marvel And Stan Lee Proud

May 23rd, 2014 5:37am EDT
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Directed by Brian Singer and shot in 3D, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is one exciting ride and definitely one of the best films in the X-Men series.

The film starts out in the future...an extremely bleak future. Not only for mutants, but for humans as well, thanks to these huge killing machines, known as the Sentinels.

What are the Sentinels you ask? Basically unstoppable robots which are programmed not only to track down and kill mutants, but murder any human that will give birth to a mutant or is a mutant sympathizer. So to say that mutants and humans are almost extinct, would be an und...

Ranking the "X-Men's" Powers by Deadliness

Ranking the "X-Men's" Powers by Deadliness
The "X-Men" franchise is the most popular comic book ensemble on film, combining the varying powers of brilliant and misguided mutants as they battle for political justice and save ther from extinction. Some of their powers are overblown and in your face, like Storm's ability to manipulate weather patterns and Magneto's control over all things metal.

Others are more discreet and deadly, like Mystique's ability to cloak herself under anyone's skin, and Professor X's penchant for invasive psychosis. Regardless of size or steel, these powers are sharp, cutting and are the perfect tools to sto...

"In the future, do I make it?" Asks Nicholas Hoult's Beast. "No," Hugh Jackman's Wolverine simply replies.

It's cliché, but that stakes really couldn't be any higher for the X-Men in the final trailer for Days of Future Past before its release on May 23.
