I hate the fact that the female body is criticized all the time, but what I do find refreshing about this case is that she’s encouraged to gain weight, not lose. I’m don’t want her to be a sex object (!) - I just wish for a hourglass figure in the film. That’s not unheathy and she face the same pressure as men does in their new superhero roles.
I have wrote a masters degree on fandom but I have to admit that even I am getting sick and tired of the wannabe-nerds who think they can get excepted by their rebloging of others hard work and material on a particular fandom or science. You’re no Einstein for reposting an intellectual post. That only makes you a pompous fool.
This outburst does have a source in some complaints about Days of Future Past. I can only guess that they criticizes the time travel in the film and the parallel universe. But they just want to show off how clever they are and feel the need to let us all know that we’re stupid for not seeing the problems.
Guess what? I sure don’t bitch about time travel when the producers have the opportunity to make amends for previous mistakes. Time travel is a game changer and if you will rather bitch about the problems with time travel than to appreciate the changes, then you’re no X-Men fan.
While I’m still at it; I guess it’s true what Howard Wolowitz said in The Big Bang Theory - "Maybe smart is the new sexy?" But that television serie has created a whole new group of people who calls themselves “nerd” - when they actually mean “fan”. I mean, you’re no nerd if you read the Twilight books over and over, or have a lot of marathons. That’s a part of fandom activities in my mind and nerds, well they’re socially awkward and have an interest for only a couple of things in their life.
A lot of the characters activity in The Big Bang Theory are fandom. I’m not saying that you can’t be both, but there’s some differences in the two definitions and people get confused.
But when you bitch, JUST to show how “intellectual” and above us all you are with your knowledge, you come off as a little too desperate in my mind. Such a wannabe-Sheldon. And it smells fishy.
Is it just me or are you also tired of all the reposting of “nerdy stuff” on Facebook etc.?
Wow, have I been waiting a long and tormenting time to see Days of Future Past! I’ve had a lot of X-Men marathons the last couple of weeks while I was waiting in agony. And it’s finally here on the theatre!
Bryan Singer did sadly mistreat a lot of mutants in the original trilogy and Matthew Vaughn reborned the X-Men franchise with First Class - and that was the best X-Men film, at least until now. Days of Future Past is a wonerful mashup between the trilogy and First Class - and this time Singer had the opportunity to make up for his mistakes in the earlier films. (Spoiler alert!)
Just in the opening sequence I got goosebumps - specially when Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen appears on the screen. I adore Stewart as Professor X and McKellen is legendary! If there’s something I absolutely love about the trilogy - it must be the relationship between these two. When Magneto joins the other mutants in their battle against the Sentinels my heart stops!
Oh, and by the way, the battles scenes are just amazingly awesome! Finally the mutants are used right - and finally they can compete with The Avengers (who’s been dominating the superhero genre the last couple of years)! The new mutants were awesome and the scenes with the portals were mindblowing! (I want to play Portal now!)
And, as you already know, I really liked Quicksilver. I feared it was gonna be a bit campish, but it was a great break from the seriousness with doomsday in the future. Evan Peters’ Quicksilver was a delight, how will Aaron Taylor-Johnson be in The Avengers: Age of Ultron?
Oh, and I did say spoiler alert, didn’t I? The wonderful thing with time travel is that you can change everything! There’s a whole new future now for mutants that was killed off in the previous films. And wow, I’m super excited about X-Men: Apocalypse! It can come any sooner!
I’ve got to watch this film once more on theatre - because one time wasn’t enough! I’ve got to have this film in my collection and I want to watch it at least a houndred times. True story.
Congratulation, X-Men! You’re finally more awesome than The Avengers! Ok, maybe not cooler, but definitely more awesome!
Aaarg! I’ve just come home after watching Days of Future Past. It’s way over midnight and I’ve got work in the morning. I can not fangirl as much as I like and it sucks. Because that movie was amazing!
I want to stay up and just write about it all. But I can’t.
Even though I adore Evan Peters (because of American Horror Story) I feared I was going to hate Quicksilver in Days of Future Past. The battle between the two Quicksilvers is on (waiting for the second one in The Avengers: Age of Ultron)!
I thought Bryan Singer was going to make a joke out of the character, but Quicksilver was a breath of fresh air. I wished he could participate even more!
