This movie is awesome, action packed, and a true blockbuster of the year. I haven’t since action on the scale like this since Battleship 2012. Michael Bay really made an amazing film that keeps your eyes open begging for more the entire time. I was on the edge of my seat and because of that I rate this film 9.8 out of 10.
Finally saw X-Men: Days of Future Past. Went to dinner at Cool Hand Luke’s Steak House first and then we went across to Sierra Vista Mall and watched the film. We both enjoyed it. Not a perfect film, but very good.
My issue isn’t with the film, but with some trivia I read on IMDB after seeing the film. In regard to the character of Quicksilver:
“However, in May 2013 both Marvel and Fox Studios announced a resolution to the previous legal issues, and that Quicksilver would appear in this film as well as an Avengers sequel, though under certain parameters: no reference to Quicksilver’s membership in the Avengers can be made in an “X-Men” film, and no allusion to his relations to the X-Men or Magneto (the character’s father) can be made in an “Avengers” film; the rights agreement between Fox and Marvel even goes so far as to…

Journey to the West. A sort of mythic comedy-horror-fantasy with spiritual overtones. Wriiten, Produced, and Directed by Stephen Chow, so he pretty much has to answer for it—and, truthfully, I would doubt it would get made any other way. Way too individual.

And the mass dance scenes that open the movie are astounding. Think simply of the rehearsals.

All right, a couple of thoughts on this promo:
1. As a TV spot or a web only video, this is great marketing. As the first teaser for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” it’s terrible. I say that because unless you’ve read the books (which I have) you have no idea why Peeta is there. You average moviegoer is probably wondering where Katniss is hiding.
2. Without a doubt, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” is one of the most-anticipated films this year. It’s almost July, and this movie is set to open on November 21. So how is it possible we don’t even have a teaser trailer yet?
