X-Men: Days of Future Past

Oooohh! I wonder! That said, if the heroes fuck up history through time travel and this movie ends badly for them (RE: The Empire Strikes Back), maybe the third First Class movie could be Age of Apocalypse.

That looks as good as I could have hoped, except for Bishop. 90's costumes don't work on the big screen.

Fixed.

It gets points for using Adagio in D Minor for the first half of the trailer and it doesn't look bad. I will say one of the things I liked about First Class is that it wasn't all about Wolverine but ehh, let's see what happens.

I'm fine with Wolverine when he's juxtaposed with other significant characters, and there's plenty to choose from here. Wolverine might be the thing the rest of this moves around but he's far from the only significant player.

-ALL the talent. I mean, it could turn into Star Trek Generations with Patrick Stewart getting killed by a bridge instead of on one, but it's hard to turn against a roster this fantastic. Stewart, McKellen, Jackman, McAvoy, Fassbinder, Page, Paquin, the dude who plays Iceman and of course Peter Dinklage. I freakin LOVE this cast, not just for the names but for the characters.

...Berry....

Who?

I left Marvin Berry out deliberately, you know how much I resent him stealing Marty's sound for his cousin.

I also thought Apocalypse when I saw the Temple, but there's no casting on that front and it seems like a small use of a big character. You've already got Trask and the Sentinels, that's enough.

Yeah, the anniversary just passed, but the man died 50 years ago. I feel it's okay to use this as a character / plot point.

I live near Dallas where they held the JFK memorial services. All day Friday the local news was dedicated to JFK and nothing else. There was even a serious storm that swept over the area (freezing-temperature winds and precipitation), but there were so many people crowding the memorial site they had to turn people away.

When I saw that Magneto video, I found it very odd. Partially because so much of it obviously conflicted with reality (I've seen enough news reports on the JFK shooting over the last weekend to last a lifetime), but also because it felt so weird to take something that serious and make it about a comic book character. I saw elderly people in tears on Friday during the memorial, so to have a story where Magneto was responsible for that doesn't sit right with me. I'm not mad or anything, I just don't find it entertaining at all.

EDIT:

Also, I think it's important to note that this is really different from saying that Magneto was a child in the holocaust. That's entirely fine, and it makes perfect sense. It's just that the JFK shooting was such a specific event/action that it doesn't feel right having him in there.

I disagree. It's one of the most significant events in American history of the past 50 years. So many pieces of genre fiction have been written, filmed, drawn, and sung about it and all of a sudden it's taboo?

Normally, it's not a big deal. But on the anniversary of the event, it's a little tasteless. Like I said, I have an unusual perspective seeing as I live right next to where the memorial was held, so it probably doesn't have the same impact on 90% of everyone else.

More than 90% of people don't live near the memorial site.

But yeah, ordinarily I'd be fine with this but its a stunt for the anniversary.

I was also factoring in people that don't live nearby, but were otherwise affected personally.

Anyone who might have been at the actual event, anyone who might have known the Kennedys or otherwise had their lives affected by the killing, et cetera. But I'm not gonna defend my 90% generalization any further.
