I only recently got around to watching X-Men: Days of Future Past. I really loved it, and now I’m obsessed with X-Men! It had a desperate feel throughout the whole end-of-all-mutants subject without making me totally depressed like a lot of apocalyptic-type of movies are trying to go for lately. I’ve also never been able to sympathize with Xavier until this movie, though the actor was doing a great job in the First-Class movies already. I just think he really threw his all into this performance, and it pleased me greatly.
Oh, and Quicksilver! Ermegersh I think I’m in lurvz now! When making him run and move ‘quickly’, it was done excellently! Not like the odd way they are making poor Flash look in the newest Flash TV series. Not that I don’t like the tv series. It’s just that the way they have him run reminds me of how I pretend-run-in-place when I’m telling a story. Quicksilver’s attitude was quirky and fun, and witty! I’ll bet the actor really did his background research! It seemed to me that ‘being fast’ was really thought out on how someone might cope and react to things because of their skill.
After finishing this movie and immediately needing another X-Men fix, Master Betty (hubby) offered up his Onslaught comic book collection for me to read, and that’s what I’m doing right now while I wait for the Marvel Now Uncanny X-Men comics to get here in the mail. There are 4 volumes out so far of the Uncanny X-Men, and I went ahead and assumed I’m going to want to read through them. I haven’t read any reviews on if they’re any good or not. I can tell you that the first volume of Onslaught is epic so far! Woot-woot! I have to make myself stop reading once I get started so I don’t get a headache. As far as X-Men in Marvel Now, I think there are several different routes to go, but Uncanny X-men are supposed to be the current flagship, so that’s what I’m going with for starters.
I suppose the other place I can get an X-Men fix for this new obsession is the Lego Marvel game for our PS3. All the Lego games are super adorable, and I love smashing all the blocks I can find. There are plenty of X-Men in the Lego Marvel game.
Those are my current suggestions for X-Men lovers in various fields of entertainment! All these pictures link to where you can get this stuff on Amazon.com! Now go and have fun, my ghoulz! *Mimes Professor Xavior’s temple-touching thing he does while influencing people’s minds.*
