“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.”

—IMDB

There’s simply no limit to the beauty this film has wrapped in all the swearing and gritty glory that defines Wolverine’s character and this film. Wolverine has not had an easy life, he has gone through so much and the writers knew just how to capitalize on the character, the Wolverine, and evolve the story for him. They took a risk, and they ended the story properly, they ended it in such a way that they gave closure to the character and his legacy in the X-Men.

By: Cynthia Ayala

Chappie
Columbia Pictures

From the director of District 9 comes Chappie, a science fiction film about the first true artificial intelligence, A.I. Starring Dev Patel, Ninja, Yo-Landi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret, Sigourney Weaver, Hugh Jackman and Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie.

The movie follows the same aesthetic as District 9. However, with fewer interviews to propel the story forward. Dev Patel plays a genius scientist, creator of the S.C.O.U.T. bots, a robotic police force. This movie explores the human condition: what it means to be human and what it means to have an identity.

By: Eric Eisenberg Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past promises to bring together multiple generations of the mutant superhero team, with the worlds of the original X-Men trilogy and Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class colliding, but today it has been sadly announced that one fan-favorite character has been axed from the final cut of the film. During a recently interview with Entertainment Weekly, the director revealed that Anna Paquin, who plays Rogue in the cinematic X-Men series, is no longer going to appear in next summer’s blockbuster. The detail was uncovered when Singer explained how a rescue sequence that … Continue reading Anna Paquin’s Rogue Has Been Cut Out Of X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Is Peter Dinklage Playing The Main Villain In X-Men: Days Of Future Past?


By:  Eric Eisenberg Late last night Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage became the first new actor to join the X-Men franchise since pre-production began on Bryan Singer’s Days of Future Past. Unfortunately, the casting news came without one key detail: who he will be playing. This the announcement many fans have speculated about names like Puck and MODOK, but the former isn’t a mutant and the latter still belongs to Marvel Studios. We have no idea who Dinklage will end up playing, but today it seems that the field has been narrowed down to characters playing for the baddies. Variety claims to have learned that Dinklage … Continue reading Is Peter Dinklage Playing The Main Villain In X-Men: Days Of Future Past?

The Wolverine’s First Trailer Won’t Arrive Until Late March


By:  Eric Eisenberg It would have made a lot of sense for 20th Century Fox to attach the first trailer for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine to this weekend’s A Good Day To Die Hard. Not only is the same studio releasing both movies, they are also both being aimed at the same demographic and the timeline fits perfectly (with the superhero flick due in theaters on July 26th). And yet it looks as though we won’t be getting our first look at The Wolverine for more than a month. Earlier today rumors sprouted that we would be getting a first-look trailer at the new comic book … Continue reading The Wolverine’s First Trailer Won’t Arrive Until Late March

Hugh Jackman Suits Up In New Image From The Wolverine


By:  Eric Eisenberg In Bryan Singer‘s 2000 film X-Men it was established that Wolverine wasn’t a big fan of the leather jump suit the team had him wear, but that doesn’t fully explain a certain pattern that has developed in the marketing for James Mangold‘s upcoming superhero film The Wolverine. Thus far there have been three official stills and one photo-based poster for the movie (the teaser poster was illustrated) and all of them have featured the titular character not wearing a shirt. As we haven’t seen a trailer yet, until now there was no reason to believe that Hugh Jackman wasn’t doing the … Continue reading Hugh Jackman Suits Up In New Image From The Wolverine

Les Misérables


Breathtaking, wonderful amazing! I absolutely loved this movie so much. The artistic design of the movie was breathtaking and the rawness of the music, the way it vibrated in the theater was amazing. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised at how the movie was developed as well as the casting choices. Granted I spent half the movie remembering that these were The Dictator, Bellatrix, Wolverine, Catwoman and the Gladiator. I know, it’s annoying that I made those comparisons but it is true. That being said, despite those thoughts intruding into my head, I loved this movie and was completely entranced and … Continue reading Les Misérables
