Good news ‘X-Men’ fans ! Bryan Singer will be back to direct the next installment in the ‘X-Men’ franchise.
I wouldn’t consider myself a huge X-Men fan, but I did enjoy ‘X-Men:First Class’ and ‘X-Men:Days Of Futures Past. Bryan Singer, who directed the first two ‘X-Men’ films and ‘Days Of Futures Past’, just recently had his sexual assault case dropped and is looking to move on with the franchise. This is great news, considering what he brought to Days Of Futures Past, which was one of the best films in the franchise. I will be keeping you updated on whether Channing Tatum will be making a cameo as Gambit. He will be staring in his own film, but the release date for the ‘Gambit’ film has yet to be announced.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will be released May 27th, 2016 and James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicolas Hoult and Hugh Jackman will all be returning.
On the first edition of what did you watch, I bring nothing to the table in terms of films. The weekend was a busy one for me and as much as I wanted to see some of the new releases, I didn’t get the chance to. I should be checking out ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ on Wednesday, so expect a review for that within the week.
At home, I do have a pile of films sitting on my desk that I still need to watch. Hopefully, I get to finally watch ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Awakenings’, as well as a repeat viewing of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’. NHL pre season starts tonight and I feel obligated to watch my ever-so-inconsistent Maple Leafs start off with a couple of W’s. Unfortunately, Pre-season doesn’t count for anything, but I love hockey, so it’s not a total waste of time
What did you watch this weekend? Anything you recommend seeing?
Let me know in the comments.
In my opinion, and probably the opinion of others, this summer lacked movie magic. There wasn’t many movies that were worth seeing, and the ones that were predicted to do well either didn’t or were hated my critics and audiences(Transformers:AOE, TMNT).
Once August hit, I felt like the summer of movies was over. There was nothing to look forward to and most movies, with the exception of “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” and “22 Jump Street”, were complete letdowns.
I was never excited to see “Guardians Of The Galaxy”. I thought it looked stupid and Marvel films were just getting a little too much for me. However, after reading reviews and walking into a theatre where baby Groot is dancing to Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”, I decided to give it a chance. Besides, I get free movies anyway right? I never thought I’d love the movie so much that I would end up seeing it 5 times in theatres. It was action packed, hilarious, heart-warming and suspenseful and that, to me, is what a summer movie should be. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. If you have, check it out again.
Hopefully, within the next few months, I’ll be seeing more indie dramas. I really would love to check out “Boyhood”, which I heard is fantastic, and “Frank”, which I also heard is fantastic.
So my questions of the day are:
How many times have you seen Guardians?
And is there anymore you’ve seen more than 3 times?
