Re: X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

So many thoughts:

* Did anyone else dig the Sentinel Towers?  You know, we keep thinking of the Nolan Batman films as being very stark, but the old X-Men movies were very straightforward in the design, the blue corridor (I love the blue corridor), Cerebro, etc... and I thought that the future Sentinels were wonderfully sleek.  The 70s ones didn't really float my boat, but what they became... love that.

* Didn't the first action sequence feel like you were reading the comics?  It was straight outta the old books, the kind of amazing sequence I've been waiting to see since the first flick, especially Bobby surfing on a wave of ice, oh my god.  And Blink's portals?  Loved those.

* I kinda had tears in my eyes at the end, seeing everyone back together again... it felt like home.  BTW, is anyone else wondering if Wolverine now still has bone claws in the future?  (And Chip, were you talking about seeing Rebecca Romijn in the future in the ending?  She's dead in the first future.  But I kinda like how they left that up in the air as well, because you know she'll factor in to the next movie's plot in a big way... because it's Jennifer freakin' Lawrence and all).


You know, Days Of Future Past is the rare sequel that fixes all the problems I had with the previous movie, that's kind of impressive.  The last one didn't feel like a proper X-Men movie, well now the original director's come back!  I didn't really care about the 60s X-Men because they felt crammed in there.  Well, now we'll just have a few characters and let them shine.  Xavier lost his legs way too quickly.  Well, now he can walk-- but at a great price.  And so on and so on.
