This Week From Redbox: X-Men: Days of Future Past


This past weekend I finally watched a movie that I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen yet. 

X-Men: Days of Future Past


Here is what I asked myself right after watching it. "What were you doing this whole time?" Not really sure how to answer that other than saying I don't know. I remember that this was on my list to see in theaters and I guess life happened. Since pushing to have as much content as possible for our website starting the beginning of this year I have made it a goal to start catching up. Not just for content on the site but for me as well! 

This movie has no lack of entertainment for me. The intertwining of both future and past throughout the movie was executed brilliantly. 

There are many great scenes throughout the movie starting with the opening battle scene. However my favorite scene involved Evan Peters when he was helping Erik (young Magneto) escape his prison confinement. Quicksilver (Evan Peters) has a hilarious run through the kitchen, in and out of guards causing them to miss their targets and rendering the guards unconscious. 

Again this was a great movie. Traveling through time to stop Raven from killing Dr. Trask played by Peter Dinklage, only releases a more determined Magneto. Not only are there physical fights but inner struggles as well. This makes for one movie that should have been seen in theaters but since it wasn't for myself an absolute must see for Marvel, X-Men and Comic fans in general. I give it 4 out of 5 Turtle Shells.
