X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

Evan Peters as Quicksilver

Evan Peters as Quicksilver

I read some time ago a paper (or was it a presentation) stating that there are a dozen of stories, that are changed and adapted, generating all the movies we have seen since the story of the world. I am not that drastic, but it seems that at least there was some kind of information sharing between the writers of this movie and the writers of Star Trek, into the Darkness. Why? Same base… somehow it seemed that the current status of the X-men World story wasn’t flexible enough, so lets get back into time, and change the story, so that now we can rewrite it, making some characters that were dead alive again. For Star Trek it was similar, the actors were idolized, or almost, and therefore, they got back in time to somehow introduce the new actors.

Not that I am against the idea. If you read an older post about the Star Trek movie I really gave my congratulations to the writers for that idea. Now I am not sure if I should congratulate again, as it seems the idea is not new.

Anyway, the movie is good. The story acceptable. Lots of action, fun, and a lot of different mutants around (I like when there are a lot of them, not just one or two). But what I liked the most? The scene I captured above, with Quicksilver. Not just I like the character, but Evan Peters is great. Please, please, please, make him come back in future movies.

Nice nails work!

For some time that IMDB is suggesting me to watch this movie, and I wasn’t sure if I’ve had watched it. Nevertheless, after watching it, I continue not being able to be sure. But I think I did not.

The thing I like on this movie is that we have a lot of mutants, with a lot of different powers. Wolverine movie is mostly him. I like to see what the invent. Like, for example, the nails above. Cute.

Other than that, the story is standard, with interesting jokes. Liked it enough to vote 8 in 10 at IMDB. To conclude, I can only say that Iceman is a chicken. Couldn’t him control all that water? It would be easy…
