X-Men: Days Of Future Past – AWESOME

X-Men: Days Of Future Past - AWESOME

Finally watched X-Men: Days of Future Past last night.

Without a doubt it is now my favorite X-Men movie by far. Previously my favorite one was First Class.

One of the best things about Days of Future Past is that it fixes a lot of continuity problems from all the previous films, tying everything up nicely so the franchise can move forward.

This photo is my favorite scene in the movie … Super super dope … Quicksilver is awesome in the film.

X-Men Trivia: For those who don’t know, Pietro/Peter Maximoff aka Quicksilver, is actually Magneto’s son in the comics. In the film Peter asks Magneto what his mutation is. He tells him he can manipulate metal, to which he responds, “Really? My mom used to date a guy who could move metal”. and Magneto turns to face him with a shocked expression on his face. This is a reference to Quicksilver’s comic book counterpart whose father is Magneto.

Awesome film. I wanna watch it again!

P.S. Don’t forget to stay till the credits finish! 😉

OMG I’m So Excited!

OMG I'm So Excited!

I’m so psyched … The Flash is definitely my favorite superhero of all time, and to know that Barry Allen is getting a brand new TV series on the same channel that produces the awesome Arrow is really good news to me. Grant Gustin looks perfect for the role and I can’t wait to watch it!

The new Flash is much sleeker than the old one (circa 1990 and starring John Wesley Shipp):

Check out the teaser trailer that The CW released:

I bought the first couple of story arcs as soon as they came out in 1993-1994, and I’m glad I kept them in really good condition!
