James McAvoy & Michael Fassbender impersonate Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen...

As you may have read in my X-Men: Days of Future Past review, I loved the movie. I might love this video even more. Check out James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, the actors who portrayed young Professor X and Magneto in Days of Future Past, impersonate their older Professor X and Magneto counterparts, Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. Sorry, but there’s no young Wolverine Hugh Jackman impersonating older Wolverine Hugh Jackman in the video. Video courtesy of...

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Review May30

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Review...

Looking at the trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, I would understand if you had qualms. I had them too. I couldn’t tell if the movie was going to be awesome or awful. Good news…it’s awesome. X-Men: Days of Future Past is based on a a two-part comic book storyline that ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142. Growing up, this was my absolute favorite X-Men storyline. Like the movie, half the comic is set in the future and half is set in the present (or in the movie’s case, the early 70s). In this story, the X-Men have lost. They’ve been hunted down and either exterminated or imprisoned by the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots. There’s no hope in the future, other than going back in time and changing a pivotal moment that lead to this bleak state. After you watch X-Men: Days of Future Past, I highly recommend that you also read the comic book that inspired it. It’s readily available both digitally and in print. The major difference between the comic and the movie versions of Days of Future Past is that in the comic, it’s Kitty Pryde’s mind that travels to the past, not Wolverine’s. This leads to one of the most memorable scenes in X-Men comics history, when future Colossus “fastball specials” future Wolverine at a Sentinel and the Sentinel blasts Wolverine with such intensity that all that’s left is his adamantium skeleton. I really liked that the new mutants introduced in the movie, Warpath, Blink, Bishop and Sunspot were used mainly for very awesome fight scenes. Exposition wasn’t wasted on these characters’ back story. Instead, we’re thrown right into one of their battles, where their powers, especially Blink’s, are able to shine. But the new mutant who stole the movie is Quicksilver. The...
