Seems like we have a winner. Always good for the genre.

SuperCat - 5/22/2014, 7:18 AM
Hearing mostly good things about this movie. I'm convinced.







charlie2094 - 5/22/2014, 7:19 AM
Saw this earlier, fantastic film! Might even top Winter Soldier for me. Another great CBM :D

Despite the Quicksilver "controversy" l, his scenes were brilliant, wish there was more
sKeemAn - 5/22/2014, 7:20 AM
Everyones talking how Quiks is the scene stealer of this movie. I'm starting to think Marvel's Quicks vs Fox Quicks is going to be the flame war for the next year.

@ sKeemAn

I agree my friends told me Q.S. was awesome and his acting was way better than the other Q.S. based upon Godzilla.

Dang Snyder may have a true Juggernaut with this movie......

What a bunch of sycophants. Just from the way he pronounced sentinel ( I almost spewed my mt dew on that one!) makes me realize that these are armchair/movie going fans and have no idea about the books.
SpideyQuad - 5/22/2014, 7:23 AM
Will not go over principles. Screw you nazi ped lover!
ManCalledSting - 5/22/2014, 7:23 AM
I'm hopefully going to see this on Monday. Time travel, bitches!
SuperCat - 5/22/2014, 7:24 AM
LOL @ BustASpideyPose

Thanks!
ATrueHero1987 - 5/22/2014, 7:25 AM
I will be seeing this Saturday, right after Godzilla!
ManCalledSting - 5/22/2014, 7:26 AM
Pointman: Are you the guy in the theater, over analyzing it, and getting upset when the movie doesn't follow the comics to a tee?

@ SpideyQuad

LMAO! Really what ever happened to Innocent until Proven Guilty?!?!?!?

Anyways that is your call and your loss.
Brainiac13 - 5/22/2014, 7:26 AM
This will make a lot of money.......with good reviews and WOM.:)
SpiderFraud - 5/22/2014, 7:27 AM
JeremyJahns, just posted his review...praised the hell out of it.
cipher - 5/22/2014, 7:29 AM
I still haven't seen Godzilla. I'm kinda on the fence about it, but I suppose my girlfriend will fix that up right quick when she says "NO", 'cause F*CK WHAT I BLOODY THINK ABOUT ANYTHING, an' all that rubbish.
cipher - 5/22/2014, 7:30 AM
I'm not whipped.. I'm NOT. Just, uh.. complacent.
FastFlames - 5/22/2014, 7:32 AM
Weed. Weed. More weed?
sKeemAn - 5/22/2014, 7:32 AM
@joe

I personally think Evan Peters is a better actor than ATJ. His work on American Horror Story shows how much range he has.
ManCalledSting - 5/22/2014, 7:32 AM
Cipher: I wanna see Godzilla, but haven't been able to yet, and now this is out. I'm watching this first. Worse comes to worst, I'll watch Godzilla on my PS3 when it's released digitally.
BatManiac - 5/22/2014, 7:32 AM
The movie was [frick]ing phenomenal. It deserves all the praise it's getting!

I'll be very busy drinking this weekend in the sun. If I live, I will see it next week or so.
cipher - 5/22/2014, 7:35 AM
Sting- Yeah, I'll probably end up waiting. Hey, you have yourself a good time, y'hear?

:)
sKeemAn - 5/22/2014, 7:36 AM
I got my tickets. I will have a 40 oz and a weed brownie before I watch. It makes the experience so much better.
ManCalledSting - 5/22/2014, 7:36 AM
That's one of the things I really like about a Singer film, he's a great story teller.
CoulsonLives - 5/22/2014, 7:37 AM
THE BEST X-MEN MOVIE IN AWHILE!!!
I was disappointed we didn't get more scenes with Quicksilver...
ManCalledSting - 5/22/2014, 7:37 AM
Ciph: If they don't catch the flask in my pocket, or the joint in my ear, I'll be fine!
ManCalledSting - 5/22/2014, 7:38 AM
Coulson: I've heard he's back for Apacolypse.
charlie2094 - 5/22/2014, 7:38 AM
@joe

Definitely agree, this Quicksilver was great, wish there was more. If I was to judge ATJ off Godzilla, think Evan Peters could be the better one, though I'm sure Whedon wrote a better character for him than Godzilla. Could have two great Quicksilvers!
marvelmaniaco - 5/22/2014, 7:42 AM
This was an amazing movie! Great storytelling, amazing use it mutations and powers! Good characters
CoulsonLives - 5/22/2014, 7:43 AM
So what would I rate X-Men Days of Future Past?
9.5, because it needed more scenes with Quicksilver and Blink :)
ralfinader - 5/22/2014, 7:44 AM
I must be from another planet. "I loved First Class" is a statement that throws everything else the person says out the window for me. It was such a sloppy mess, it truly felt like a made for TV movie to me. I'm talking more about the plotting, narrative, action sequences, than the charactor beats, not one thing about that movie struck me as good except the casting of Fassbender and the scene in that bar. I guess I am a hater, even though I wish I didn't have to be, but I cannot make the disconnect between the watered down film universe, and the vibrant comic one, which is my problem. I'll see DofP at home, like I have every Fox-men movie since I got burned by X3 (Ellis liked that shit? Well, there is another opinion I can't seriously again).
McNyagano - 5/22/2014, 7:47 AM
@Batmaniac

Glad you enjoyed it man! I'm seeing it this Friday and on Sunday again:)
CoulsonLives - 5/22/2014, 7:49 AM
My favorite song in the movie.
